When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream. Joseph was no where near him at the time. From where he sat in prison, nothing reasonable had happened. His last logical hope had been yet another disappointment. Joseph had no way of knowing what was about to happen.
[callout]Joseph would not have been prepared
for his Suddenly had he not trusted The Lord.[/callout]
Thirteen years earlier – give or take – Joseph had had a Dream of his own. He saw himself in charge of Something Big. He knew his Dream was from God, and he had no idea how to make it happen. But God did.
So Joseph trusted God. Even when …
- his brothers sold him into slavery
- he was accused of and imprisoned for something he did not do
- all reasonable hope had failed to produce the result he was expecting
So much evidence pointed in the opposite direction of Joseph’s Dream. Yet God was at work. Doing things Joseph knew nothing about. Putting things in place. Preparing Joseph’s heart.
Then Suddenly he went from prison to palace.
In just One Day everything turned around. Genesis 41
