Why does God want you in prison?
Does God ever make mistakes?
Could He be leading you by alternative routes?
Please read Genesis 39:11-23
So there was Joseph trying to do the right thing and he ends up naked with his masters wife claiming he did it on purpose. All the while Joseph knew she was the one that grabbed his cloak and all he was trying to do was run away from the her. He knew he would be wrongly accused and he wouldnt be able to do anything about it.
Have you ever had this type of experience?
Have you ever looked up at God and said, “What, You are almighty and yet you allow me to be wrongly accused?” “What is wrong with You God?” “God you really screwed me up this time!!” “Thanks to you God my life will never be the same, now everyone things I am a jerk!”
Nothing and let me stress this NOTHING catches God by surprise- Not the God I serve.
Now there are many gods that get caught by surprise everyday. Ever see someone whose god was money and then the stock market crashes. Or have you ever seen someone whose god was physical fitness and then they get cancer. This happens everyday and I believe many times it is The God trying to let us see that all gods short of Him are about as useful as tits on a bull when times get tough.
But take a look at what happened starting at the end of Vs 20,
“But while Joseph was there in the prison, the Lord showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden. So the warden put him in charge of all those help in the prison.”
Cant you just hear Joseph telling this war story in heaven even now?
“So there I was buck naked and my masters wife screaming and me going what now God.”
Because of Joseph Gods Love and kindness flowed into a prison and God had the mouth piece that He needed in the right place at the right time. Gods timing is perfect and while we might not see it or understand it at the time- He LOVES us and He will take care of the details. All we need to do is allow the faith muscle to grow as the prison door locks behind us.
This step and this moment IS from God and He has you right here and right now- Let the faith grow and let Him work and:
