Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus

Early in my attempts to follow God’s will, it seemed to some that I had gotten myself on a dead-end road, in a place that had no future. Looking back, it was a place used by God to prepare me for everything else I was to do in ministry. I learned when you follow God’s will, where you are is as important as where you are headed. After Joseph had been sold into slavery, he was put into Potiphar’s prison. Genesis 39:20 says, “Joseph’s master took him and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were confined.” Surely it was Joseph’s dead-end road. Not so. Later Joseph would serve in a position of power. Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt” (Genesis 41:41). Joseph was in prison, on his way to the palace. Don’t ever let where you are, keep you from where God is leading you.

I needed this reminder.  I myself have gotten to that dead end road right now.  Writing, speaking, and other things that I was doing in ministry have gone away right now.  This was the encouragement I needed.  I  can't wait to see what God has planned next.  Thanks.
