Write down one elliptic curve $E/GF(p)$ with invariant $j(E)=j$. (There's a simple formula to do that.) Use a standard (poly-time) algorithm to compute
$N(E,p):=\#E(GF(p))$. Assuming that $j\ne0$ and $j\ne1728$, then $E$ has a unique quadratic twist over $GF(p)$, so find a non-square in $GF(p)$ and use it to write down an equation for the twist, call it $E'$. Again use the poly-time algorithm, compute $N(E',p):=\#E'(GF(p))$. If either of the numbers $N(E,p)$ or $N(E',p)$ is divisible by $l$, you win. Otherwise there is no such curve over $GF(p)$ with the given $j$-invariant.
However, if you didn't mean to specify the value of $j$, but just want some elliptic curve defined over $GF(p)$ with $l\mid N(E,P)$, then what you need to do is find a point on the modular curve $X_1(l)$ that is defined over $GF(p)$.
