The will of God is a funny thing. I reminded someone today that Joseph was in the will of God when he was in the pit. He was in the will of God at Potiphar's House. He was in the will of God when he was in the prison. He was in the will of God when he was in Pharoah's palace.
That's hard for some of us to grasp. If things are not going like we think they should, then we wonder how God could be in that. He is. He may be leading and guiding you to the place that will eventually be your "palace." Even though it is no fun to be in the pit, a servant in Potiphar's house or in prison, there is a purpose for that time.
Joseph's experiences in the pit, Potiphar's house and in prison prepared him for his time in the palace.
Joseph lived his dream and I'm living mine. It's great to be in God's will. :)
