His dreams were awash…sold into slavery was he – yet Joseph did as he knew, and The Lord gave him favor in the eyes of Potipar and the guards in the jail he was condemned to.
Little did he know the heart of God. ALL things work together for good in the lives of them who Love The LORD and are called according to His purpose.

God in no way views ‘time’ as we do. A ‘period’ to The Spirit of God is an occurence, Amen. The Isrealites that refused to bow to the image… https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/%3Fsearch%3DDaniel%2B3%253A16-28%26version%3DKJV%26interface%3Damp&ved=2ahUKEwic38bW15vlAhUBTN8KHeq9C3UQFjAJegQICBAB&usg=AOvVaw3hPmawzlUXcGwT2tXTYQI5&cf=1

Samuel was born by The grace of ALL mighty God, Amen. He was promised to God before he was born.

His portion was known. We can run every one called by God and see that no matter what, they had a part in The Story. You are here for a purpose! May I ask humbly – just what is your purpose?
We could go on and see those who attempted to flee their purpose! THE reason they exist?
Jonah, Paul…the list is endless! https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/old-testament-student-manual-kings-malachi/chapter-9%3Flang%3Deng&ved=2ahUKEwiQ_tGM2pvlAhWjmeAKHaP-BVUQFjANegQIChAB&usg=AOvVaw1b1tFUQPpiceM9rZyxhoP6
Time after time in Scripture we see folks leaning their ear toward the Almighty. Include Elijah on this list. Call him a man who heard God.
In Ruth 1:16–17, Ruth tells Naomi, her Israelite mother-in-law, “Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried.
Are you lead? Have you heard? What is in your heart? I should ask…have you prayed yet today? A habit or a chore? The Sun ‘rose’ because it was supposed to, Earth revolves because it is supposed to. Has it ever stopped?
“So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.” Joshua 10:13
Sometimes we may state excuses! The reason we think ‘why’ or ‘why not’, do or don’t. Do we struggle with that voice? Do what? 1 Thessalonians 5:21 says – “Test all things; hold fast what is good.”
Hold fast to that which is good. Do you measure all by The Word? Just how were you raised, taught, led? What leads you now?
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:14
But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Galatians 5:18
So, we pray: Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in Thee: yea, in the shadow of Thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. Father, I will exalt you in my season of plenty, Amen. ALL is for reason, Amen.
I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
He shall send from Heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Amen.
God shall send forth His mercy and His truth, I am covered in His dazzling glory! I am filled and spill over, Amen.
My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
Be Thou exalted, O God, above the Heavens; let Thy glory be above all the Earth.
They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.
My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
Awake up, my glory; awake, rejoicing of my soul and my song, Amen. I live in praise and thanksgiving, my reason is set. Guide me LORD in and on the path I was Created for, Amen. Teach me my reason I pray in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
I myself will awake early as did Your servants for you give me peace and rest, my every moment is Yours Father, Amen.
I will praise Thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto Thee among the nations. For Thy mercy is awesome unto the Heavens, and Thy truth unto the Earth.
Be Thou exalted, O God, above ALL in existence, we lay before Your glory Lord, covered by Your excellence, Amen.
