And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.
And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh. Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:
And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged. Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.
And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by GOD, and GOD will shortly bring it to pass. Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as GOD hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: (Gen 41:1, 8-9, 13-14, 32-33, 39)
Pharaoh calls out Joseph as a man of GOD and sets him up as 2nd in the Kingdom. GOD has promoted him from Hebrew slave to Prime minister of Egypt by way of prison and even Pharaoh recognized him for the man he had become along the journey. GOD will use our circumstances to mold our character and make us into the person He wants us to be, conformed to the image of His dear Son.
While the journey may not always be as nice or pleasant as we would like, we should not be surprised at what GOD is doing, for He tells us in His Word. He doesn't give us all the details, but He does outline His purpose for His people. And along the way, He has commanded us to be His ministers to this lost and dying world. He has called us to reach out to those in need, not to earn points or gain favor, but to serve the hurting as He gives the increase. He has encouraged us to disciple one another in His Word in love and unity. He has commissioned us to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to all, and as we go, tell those who will hear of the Salvation that comes from faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary that they might believe and believing have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. Just as Joseph trusted GOD, You must turn away from your sIn and unrighteousness and trust what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. Just as He provided for Joseph, He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, and is our Life. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life.
