The Big Picture

The King's Jail

I don't have guest bloggers often enough, and today a I am both honored and excited that my husband (aka Captain Fun) is my guest blogger. You will see that he has a very serious side, and his spiritual insights and discernment often amaze me. 

The story to which he refers is found in Genesis 39. 

I do not know what you are going through today or where this post finds you. Perhaps in a hospital or waking up to no job or waking up in a prison of a different kind. 

I want to encourage you with this. Jail was Joseph’s path to be the leader of Egypt. If he had not been put in the king's jail, he would have never met the cup bearer, interpreted his dream and then in turn interpreted the Pharaoh’s dream and become king. Who knows but that Joseph thought, “Oh no, not jail.” Or “Oh no, not the king’s jail.” But if he had not been in jail and in that jail in particular, he would not have been king. Likewise, if he had compromised with Potiphar’s wife to keep peace, he would have been a slave in Potiphar’s house the rest of his life. 

What is your “kings jail”? A place you have been thrown against your will? If you are there now, know that it could be the path to your blessing and the blessing of others. 

Look at the far reaching effect: If Joseph had been unfaithful, his family and the nation would have gone through famine without the grain Joseph provided. For that matter, Joseph would have experienced the famine himself, powerless to do anything. He could have become a victim of the famine himself. 

What is your “king’s prison”? It could be the path to your blessing and the blessing of others.

Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
