TAS Why did Joseph Suffer?

Why did Joseph suffer? 

How did Joseph suffer? Well he was hated of his brethren to begin with. He suffered their hatred. Why? Well, there are two sides to that. On the one hand, he suffered because they were carnal; on the other hand, because he stood against that which he perceived to be the way of grief and dishonour to his father.

 This is a difficult thing to say without incurring misunderstanding: nevertheless it is a true position. That which really goes on according to the law of the Spirit of life, and in which that law is operating, will have spiritual discernment in respect of carnality in even the Lord’s children, the Father’s family, and, because it has such discernment, will inevitably come to a place where it cannot accept that, but has to repudiate it, has to stand against carnality in the people of God; and immediately you do that, you are ostracized, you are regarded as thinking yourself superior. You are cut off and put out; you are rejected; you are made the object of sneer and reproach; you come into suffering. 

Carnality hates to be exposed. Well, that is why Joseph suffered, and that is the way of suffering. It is standing for God’s best, which ever means standing against that which is less than God’s best. T A Sparks

George Muller: Decision Making

[Important]. George Muller

To ascertain the Lord’s will we ought to use scriptural means. Prayer, the word of God,
and His Spirit should be united together. We should go to the Lord repeatedly in prayer,
and ask Him to teach us by His Spirit through His word. I say, by His Spirit through His
word. For if we should think that His Spirit led us to do so and so, because certain facts
are so and so, and yet His word is opposed to the step which we are going to take, we
should be deceiving ourselves.

For instance: A brother in business thinks he ought to leave the house in which he lives,
because it is not in a good situation. He wishes to know the Lord’s mind, as he says, and
prays about the matter. After a few days, unexpectedly, a house is offered to him without
seeking after it, in a much better situation. The house is very suitable, as he thinks; the
rent very moderate; and moreover the person who offers him the house tells him, that,
because he is a believer he will let him have it at this cheap rent. There is, however, this
scriptural objection in the way. If he goes into this house, he must carry on so large a
business, to cover his expenses, that his time will be so occupied as to encroach upon
those hours, which ought to be devoted to his spiritual interests. Now the scriptural way
of deciding would be this: No situation, no business will be given to me by God, in which
I have not time enough to care about my soul (Matthew vi. 33).

Therefore, however
outward circumstances may appear, it can only be considered as permitted of God, to
prove the genuineness of my love, faith, and obedience, but by no means as the leading of
His providence to induce me to act contrary to His revealed will.

Not Everyone Hears the Voice of God

Jesus

The crowd of bystanders heard the sound and said that it had thundered; others said, An angel has spoken to Him!
John 12:28-29

Paul

On the Damascus road only Saul heard the voice. “Those that travelled with him only heard the sound … Acts 9:7

Daniel

Daniel 10:7
And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision [of this heavenly being], for the men who were with me did not see the vision, but a great trembling fell upon them so that they fled to hide themselves.

~~
What do these statements have in common?
One thing is that not everyone hears and understands the Voice of God.
