YOU ARE NOT STUCK
Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus' body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid.
So when the Midianite merchants came by, his brothers pulled Joseph up out of the cistern and sold him for twenty shekels of silver to the Ishmaelites, who took him to Egypt.
In the scriptures the first one tells of when Jesus was taken down from the cross. The second is from the Bible story where Joseph’s brothers threw him in a pit and left him to die. In both of these scriptures someone is stuck. Jesus is stuck on a cross and Joseph is stuck in a pit. Here's an interesting thought, God had someone arranged to get them out of their situations where they were bound and had no freedom. There is a story in Acts 12 where Peter is bound in prison and an angel comes to rescue him and get him out.
If you are feeling like there are certain areas of your life where you are bound or stuck, put your trust in God and rest in knowing that He has a plan to set you free. God is preparing a moment in time where He will arrange for you to be free from the chains you are bound by or the pit that you may be trapped in. Trust the Lord, He loves us so much, He is working His plan to get you out of the situation that you may be now stuck in.
