Reflections - 19 October 2014 


God's Opportune Moment

Genesis 40:23 Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.

Despite Joseph's best efforts to remind Pharoah's chief cupbearer to put in a good word for him, the cupbearer forgot. To Joseph, there was no bargaining chip or form of leverage that he could use to "get-out-of-jail" as it seemed that his best bet was off the line. He seemed to be set for an indefinite term behind bars.

It was only after some time later that the Pharaoh had a dream and needed an interpreter that the cupbearer remembered Joseph, and it was only then that Joseph got his breakthrough.

 

Work is a constant challenge; its pressures can sometimes be overwhelming while the rewards, fleeting. And each time whenever we look for our breakthroughs either through a new job opening or a promotion, we can find ourselves "forgotten". It is in moments like these that we have to remember that God is the one in control of the doors - shutting them and opening them alike. In Joseph's case, it took a few more years before he had the opportune breakthrough and rose from prisoner to Prime Minister in a single, swift moment of elevation.

 

While disappointments can set in whenever our expectations are unmet, we have to be mindful that He is sovereign, and trust that He has the best in store for us. It is His time, His way.


God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith. But it’s worth the wait. - Unknown
