Forgotten Truth 2

Continuing on from a previous post concerning the life of Joseph and how Yahweh Elohim is in control of every situation He places us in in our lives.
The book goes on to explain that nothing in our lives is random.  Everything has been preplanned for our benefit and for the esteem of Yahweh's Kingdom.

Jer 1:5
"Before I formed you in the belly I knew you, and before you came out of the womb I did set you apart – I appointed you a prophet to nations." Eph 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Messiah יהושע
unto good works, which Elohim prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

John Calvin once said

"when God wants to judge a nation, he gives them wicked rulers."

I say this to bring a point here.  The nation of Israel had a wicked king and queen,  Ahab and Jezebel,  Ahab tried to get around a prophecy regarding his death.  Yahweh brought it about just as He said anyway.  You can read about this in I Kings 21. 
So even when things seem out of control, they are still very much under His perfect control.  Joseph's life was very much out of control.  For all practical purposes his life was ended.  He was a slave.  But his life was very much under the perfect control of Elohim.
Does your life seem out of control?  Perhaps, not a whole lot more to live for or just trying to get through another day?  Perhaps your goals, and dreams and vision for life have been ripped away from your life and you are just wondering how you can keep going or the only thing keeping you going is that others are depending on you so you just go through the motions.  Remember this Yahweh Elohim is in control of your life, perfect control.  He is preparing you for something that is ahead of you and you just can't see it right now. 
Psa 139:16 Your eyes saw my unformed body. And in Your book all of them were written, The days they were formed, While none was among them. Job 14:1 "Man born of woman is of few days and turmoil-filled. Job 14:5
Since his days are decided, the number of his months is with You, You have appointed his bounds which he does not pass over. Eph 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Messiah יהושע unto good works, which Elohim prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
So, do we live as we please?  No, We do what we can to live as Yahweh Elohim desires us to live.
Where you are right now in life is your assignment from Elohim.  How do you feel about your assignment?
Pleased?  Hate it?  (By the way I do not like milking cows, but that is where my assignment is now) Drifting along?  Is your assignment welcome or unwelcome?
Know this:  Your assignment is from Yahweh.  Does that change how you view it?  I know it is changing it for me.  He is in control of our journey.  He is in control of our ultimate destination.  He is preparing us ahead of time for that which He desires us to do.  He assigns our posts.  How are we handling our post?

Three observations:
1.  Sometimes Yahweh Elohim gives a deadend assignment. 
Deu 29:29
"The secret matters belong to יהוה our Elohim, but what is revealed belongs to us and to our children forever, to do all the Words of this Torah. 2.  Sometimes there will be an assignment within an assignment
3.  Sometimes Yahweh will refuse your desired assignment.

More to come.
