“When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream: he was standing by the Nile,” NIV
The Bible speaks about both waiting on the Lord, and waiting for the Lord. Waiting for Him can take great patience.
“When two full years had passed…”
Looking back, two years seem to whizz by. A memory from May 2019 pops up on ‘Facebook’ and you think, ‘Could that really be two years ago? Really? But if from today you know you have a further two years to wait for something you really want to happen…well, it might feel like an eternity away.
Actually, Joseph had to wait much longer than two years for the fulfilment of his dreams. Warren Wiersbe makes this point:
‘God invested thirteen years in making a man out of Joseph; when it comes to building character, God is never in a hurry.’ ‘With the Word’, p.42.
PRAYER: Lord, please help me to wait with patience for the answers to my prayers; and in the waiting enable me to not be wasting the precious time I have each day. May I redeem it.
