If we didn’t know suffering, we wouldn’t’ know the depths of his consolation. Joseph had a dream, but he didn’t have a revelation of the plan, and purpose of God. He went from the pit to the palace, and from the palace to prison. Some of us are having what I call , the pit experience . In his captivity God still had favor on his life. He was taken from prison to the palace and given a higher status, and responsibility. To get oil from the olive; it is crushed. It is in the pit where we begin to draw near to God and seek his face. Pain will push you into your purpose. Out of pain pure praise is birth. I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise will continue to be in my mouth. Pure praise is unconditional. I’m going to praise you God because of who you are; in spite of my adversity. In pain we become tenacious and develop character. Psalms 119:71. David said It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes. Divine affliction will cause us to be transformed for his glory. Through suffering God’s divine nature is reveled. God will cause our heart to be pierced to know how to minister to his people. In the beginning Joseph had a dream; he thought it was about himself. After rejection, captivity, and suffering he realized his dream was bigger than himself. In the end he discovered It was to preserve life.
Genesis 45:7 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. Your purpose is greater than your pain
