Principle #3: You must be prepared for the vision God has prepared for you.
God laid some very heavy insight on Joseph, so heavy that his family was ready to kill him. Joseph endured and intense and sometimes painful preparation process before God’s vision for him actually manifested. First, he was betrayed by his own brothers and sold into slavery (Genesis 37:12-36), wrongfully accused of rape (Genesis 39:6-23), and forgotten by people who promised to remember his situation (Genesis 40:20-23). God did not inspire people to sin against Joseph but He used those experiences to sharpen Joseph.
