Day 14 :40-42
Royal cup bearer and baker, Joseph, Pharaoh, Joseph’s brothers
*Joseph (a prisoner) was in charger of the cup bearer and baker. He’d found favor with the head of the prison and was in charge of it. He must have just been a likable person—and of course, God was with him.
*The baker and cup bearers had dreams. Unfortunately, the baker’s wasn’t a great one. Sure enough, 3 days later, he was impaled. Wonder what he did to deserve that?
*Two years later, the cup bearer finally remembered Joseph and told the Pharaoh about how he could interpret dreams. Joseph interpreted Pharaoh’s dream and he made him a ruler in
*Jacob told the brothers that Benjamin was all he had left. Pretty harsh words, daddy.
Verses that Jumped Out at Me:
40:7—Joseph was concerned about other’s needs
41:6—Didn’t give himself credit. Gave it to God.
41:38— Pharaoh knew Joseph was filled with Spirit of God by his actions—can people, even non-believers, tell we are Christians by looking at our actions?
41:46—Joseph had been an Egyptian slave/prisoner for 13 years! Patience… we need patience.
What was Joseph’s Egyptian name?
