While in prison, Joseph made use of his circumstances as explained in Genesis 40 by helping others and by not being downtrodden but maintaining hope. He had a desire to find a way out of his situation and took the opportunity to make the best of his situation by taking charge of those held in prison and all the work done there.
Two inmates, the king’s cupbearer and baker each had a dream. Joseph interpreted the dreams and Joseph’s interpretation came about a few days later. With those who did not know God, Joseph was open to their needs just as we should do in our current times.
This passage about Joseph is a good example for us today when things do not turn out the way they ought to in life. If we go to God in prayer, we can be refreshed with a new perspective and He will bless us with strength. God is with us wherever we go because of the Holy Spirit. During the time of Joseph, God spoke to people in dreams. Today, He speaks to us through His Word.
This day with You God, let us remember that You speak to us through Your Word. Lord … we invite You into our soul. We know that You will go with us anywhere, anytime, and any place. Help us to be an overcomer even when things happen that should not or when those who owe us forget about what we have done. Help us to be able to forgive, step ahead, and be grateful for what we do have. In Jesus Name. Amen.
