A Thought for Your Day

Genesis 40:14, “Only keep me in mind when it goes well with you, and please do me a kindness by mentioning me to Pharaoh and get me out of this house.

Genesis 41:9, Then the chief cup bearer spoke to Pharaoh, saying, “I would make mention today of my own offenses. Vs. 12, “Now a Hebrew youth was with us there, a servant of the captain of the bodyguard, and we related them to him, and he interpreted our dreams for us. To each one he interpreted according to his own dream. Vs. 14, Then Pharaoh sent and called for Joseph, and they hurriedly brought him out of the dungeon; and when he had shaved himself and changed his clothes, he came to Pharaoh.”

From the time Joseph made his request to the chief cup bearer to be remembered before Pharaoh until the time he was finally released from prison was two years. The cup bearer’s restoration to his office was a fore-telling of Joseph’s own restoration. Habakkuk 2:3, “For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay.”

Has YHVH spoken things to you that have yet to be fulfilled? If so wait for it; YHVH is not one to change His mind. While you are waiting allow Him to do His good work in you and through you, as Oswald Chambers says in My Utmost for His Highest, doing the mean (common, everyday) tasks among the mean, (common, everyday) people in the mean, (common, everyday) streets, so that you might be ready when He calls you on to other things.

“These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (Rev 7:14)
