I can’t believe I’m in this situation!
Whoever thought I’d be in this problem?
Why is this happening?
If God is really in control how come He allowed this?

Joseph the dreamer was in a similar situation.

His brothers were upset because he was daddy’s favorite.
They were upset because he got the funky coat.
They were mad because while they were laboring in the fields, Joe was with Pop relaxing.

Because of that, they took Joseph and threw him in a pit.

In the pit, Joseph called out to God.

God’s response?
Silence…

You may identify with Joseph. You call out His name, no reply.

Has He gone deaf?
Is He no longer listening?
Or has He turned His ear away from me?

All that happened in chapter 37 verse 24. But lest we forget, God gave Joseph several promises in verse 5.

You may be in verse 24 today. But don’t forget verse 5.

The point?

Don’t doubt in darkness what God has shown you in the light.

Remember, God is always on time. He is a promise-keeping God.

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. (2 Peter 3:9)
