May the Lord bring to their remembrance the good promises others have made to us, no matter how long ago. May they consider the commitments they made and set about honoring those promises. May they not try to follow through with only a “reasonable facsimile thereof” but provide the full measure of the original intention and may God bless it and multiply it beyond initial expectations. Gen. 41:9–”Then the chief butler spoke to Pharaoh, saying: “I remember. . .” v.12–”Now there was a young Hebrew man with us there. . .” v.14–”Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph. . .”
Protesting is getting louder and nastier but the truth still contradicts those who despise it. The truth will never go away and it will never be compromised. Truth will never be put on the auction block. The longer the representatives of God’s truth stand in “Pharaoh’s court” and speak truth, the greater the number of “snakes” will manifest themselves. But God’s rod in Aaron’s hand swallowed up Pharaoh’s undesirable, intimidating snakes. (Ex.7:8-12 and Matt.10:26) We will see even more and nastier snakes manifest before all this is over. But they must manifest before they are swallowed up in authoritative truth.
Sometimes, in the middle of certain current events, Christians will carry on in such a way as to declare that certain events are evil and will fervently pray that they stop. But there are times when circumstances must come together in such a way that “Pharaoh’s snakes” can be drawn out into the open, so they can be swallowed up (Ex.7:12) in order to set the pattern for what is to come in the deliverance process. If those events do not come about, the “snakes” will stay in their hiding place. “So have no fear of them; for nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, or kept secret that will not become known.” (Matt.10:26, Amp)
Joseph had dreams. He was convinced, at one point, that they were not initiated in his own mind. Joseph is called to great responsibility. He is called to rule Pharaoh’s house. He shared his dreams and calling with brethren and as a result ended up in a pit and later in prison. He just stands there shaking his head. Now he is confused. But after a period of time, which was determined by an all-wise and all-knowing God, he stands before his brothers. They’ve come too late to tell Joseph he is out of God’s purpose. They’ve come too late to tell him that God does not step into the lives and conditions of men and work miracles. Standing before them he proclaims without a single doubt, “You did not send me here. It was to save many lives that God sent me ahead of you” (Gen 45:7).
