Genesis 40:1-4a: The same prison.
“Some time later, the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt offended their master, the king of Egypt. 2 Pharaoh was angry with his two officials, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker, 3 and put them in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, in the same prison where Joseph was confined. 4 The captain of the guard assigned them to Joseph, and he attended them. After they had been in custody for some time,” NIV
It was a ‘divine appointment’ that these three men should find themselves in the same prison at the same time. Joseph was gifted to be able to supernaturally speak into the lives of his fellow-inmates, and the cupbearer would be in a position to help Joseph, when he eventually remembered him. This was not a random encounter. It was not down to chance.God arranged it that these three men should be in a dungeon together. Such a God can be trusted.
Prayer: Father God, please forgive me for my many anxieties about life. Thank you that you providentially arrange the details of my moments and days. I look forward to meeting the people you will bring across my path this week, and ask that I may serve them in your Name. I also thank you that you will bring good things into my life through others. Help me to graciously receive as well as give. Sometimes it’s harder to do.
