[The Glory Unveiled]
So Joseph’s master took him and put him into the jail, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined; and he was there in the jail.( Genesis 39:20 )
Our God is so intentional about anything and everything about us. No wonder the Scriptures say that “His divine power has given us all things that pertains to life and godliness”. This is why the believer must always maintain a positive attitude at all times. Whatever happens to the believer and around the believer is working for their good. Joseph was sent to Potiphar’s house, of all the houses in Egypt. Potiphar’s wife told a lie that landed Joseph in prison but then of all the prison’s in Egypt, he was taken to where the King’s prisoners were kept. The point is that God wanted to connect Joseph to royalty and so he associated him with people who had been with royals. It was not a mistake in heaven that Joseph was imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. Actually, it was a set up that was supposed to introduce him to his true destiny. Joseph had dreamt in his teen years that he would rule some day. But then God didn’t show him how he would get there. And because he didn’t know how God was going to do it, he had to submit to God in everything. Like Joseph, God promised us a glorious future through Christ. We may not know how the details of that destiny will be played out, but from the template of Joseph’s life, we can assume that, the safest thing to do is to trust God to get us there. Nothing is a mistake if God is the one leading us. The pains of yesterday will soon paint your story beautifully. The tears will not tear you apart. It is clearing your eyes to see clearly what H God is doing. Cheer up, your “jail” may be necessary for your eminent joy.
