Who’s In Control? 

***

In Genesis Ch 41 the butler failed Joseph, forgot about him and literally left him behind.  Despite this, in those quiet and final two years in prison (Ch. 41:1), Joseph’s faith in God grew deeper than he ever thought possible. The power of God within him flourished as he forgave and understood fully that the butler was not in control of his life.

Have you confided in someone, put your trust in someone and pinned your hopes on someone (Ch. 40:14 & 15; 23) only to have them betray that trust completely?

The lesson from Joseph’s experience is simply life changing – even when the worst has actually happened, your last hope has gone and you have been left rejected and forgotten, God’s best for you has never been more certain.

The clock was actually ticking in Joseph’s favour from the very moment the Butler forgot about him…from the very moment he was falsely accused…from the very moment his brothers sold him. Selah!
