Transportations normally carry you from where you are to where you want to be. So, when God
carry you from where you are to where He wants you to be, we call it Divine Transportation. We
shall briefly look at two examples from the Bible.
FROM PRISON TO PALACE
Gen 41:39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this,
there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: 40 Thou shalt be over my house, and
according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater
than thou. 41 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.
42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed
him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck; 43 And he made him to
ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he
made him ruler over all the land of Egypt. 44 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh,
and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt. 45 And
Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the
daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.
It is easy to start praying that God should transport you from the prison of your life to the palace
of your destiny but we must think of the road that Joseph passed through.
As a beloved of his father, Joseph was sold as a slave and imagine how they would be pricing him
in the market. Slaves were bought for service so they would want to make sure that the slave they
are buying could be strong enough to work at the bargaining price. As all those bargaining would
be going on, what do you think was going on in the mind of this young man called Joseph? As a
human being, there must have been emotional trauma.
When Joseph got to Potiphar’s house, he was hardworking, cheerful and showed how great his
God was because his master saw the hand of God upon him. He was fully depended upon God and
from there lies were told against him and he was sent to jail without a fare trail.
On landing in jail, he continued his normal life of cheerfulness, hardworking and caring which led
him to be introduced to the king.
He was ready to help and was also using his gifts to help others freely. Whenever he had
opportunities to help other, he would always ascribe the glory to God.
In Potiphar’s house and in the prison, he learnt management.
Many things in his life helped him to fit into the position God transport him to.
The most important things we need to learn is that,
• The position was not vacate before that day, it was suddenly created for him.
• His CV could not qualified him for the post because he was a foreigner without resident
permit, a slave that was later promoted to prisoner.
With all these and other, nobody would think or dream of Joseph in such a post. When his brothers
came, they could not recognized him because they thought he would have died or still in slavery.
As difficult as you case may be, Divine Transportation is still available today and you can have it
even right now. If God did it for Joseph, He will do it for you.
The second example we shall talk about is –
FROM GATE TO GLORY.
Est 6:6 So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man
whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the
king delight to do honour more than to myself? 7 And Haman answered the king, For the
man whom the king delighteth to honour, 8 Let the royal apparel be brought which the king
useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon
his head: 9 And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king’s mostnoble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and
bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it
be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour. 10 Then the king said to Haman,
Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to
Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king’s gate: let nothing fail of all that thou hast spoken.
11 Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on
horseback through the street of the city, and proclaimed before him, Thus shall it be done
unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour. 12 And Mordecai came again to the king’s
gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered.
Mordecai was at the gate of the king. It was there that Haman wanted to kill him and the very
morning he was to die was the morning that he was transported to glory.
Imagine all those who were there when the gallows was being prepared for Mordecai, when they
saw him in the king’s chariot and Haman shouting of his glory, how would they understand what
was going on.
From the gate, Mordecai was picked up to be glorified. From that moment, he was going from
glory to glory.
This was a great thing that God did for him, divine transportation from gate to glory.
Whatever situation you are in today, I am here to tell you that you situation will change.
to God now, if He could transport a captive like Mordecai, He will transport you to your destiny
