Day 41 – Genesis 40

The most awful circumstances did not cause Joseph to compromise. These dark days were just before the dawn. So let us not give up now either, the Lord Jesus is coming soon. Joseph did not know that these events were going to be the very means of getting him into the great king Pharaoh's presence. The two destinies of the butler and the baker are similar to the two thieves who hung on either side of the Savior. One perished, and the other went to paradise with Christ. Notice how easy it was for Joseph to tell the meaning of the dreams. Why? Because God was so real to His suffering servant (John 15:1515Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. (John 15:15)).
V. 23 Was it possible? How often are our thoughts taken up with Christ and all that He suffered on the cross for us during the course of the week? Two years Joseph waited!
