TOPIC: ONLY GOD KNOWS
Memory verse:-"We both had dreams,” they answered, "but there is no one to interpret them.” Then
Joseph said to them, "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams.” So
the chief cupbearer told Joseph his dream. He said to him, "In my dream I saw a vine in
front of me, and on the vine were three branches. As soon as it budded, it blossomed,
and its clusters ripened into grapes. Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand, and I took the
grapes, squeezed them into Pharaoh’s cup and put the cup in his hand.” "This is what it
means,” Joseph said to him. "The three branches are three days. Within three days
Pharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your position, and you will put
Pharaoh’s cup in his hand, just as you used to do when you were his cupbearer.
But when all goes well with you, remember me and show me kindness; mention me to
Pharaoh and get me out of this prison. For I was forcibly carried off from the land of
the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing to deserve being put in a dungeon.”
When the chief baker saw that Joseph had given a favorable interpretation, he said to
Joseph, "I too had a dream: On my head were three baskets of bread.In the top basket
were all kinds of baked goods for Pharaoh, but the birds were eating them out of the
basket on my head.” "This is what it means,” Joseph said. "The three baskets are three
days. Within three days Pharaoh will lift off your head and hang you on a tree. And the
birds will eat away your flesh.” Now the third day was Pharaoh’s birthday, and he gave
a feast for all his officials. He lifted up the heads of the chief cupbearer and the chief
baker in the presence of his officials: He restored the chief cupbearer to his position,
so that he once again put the cup into Pharaoh’s hand, but he hanged the chief baker,
just as Joseph had said to them in his interpretation. The chief cupbearer, however, did
not remember Joseph; he forgot him.”
It came to a time that the chief cupbearer and the chief baker had a dream but there was no one to interpret. Joseph was right in saying that interpretation is of the Lord. Some people move from one place to another searching for answers to their dreams but the only true interpreter is the Lord. It is Him alone who knows what no man or being can tell me, Joseph thought that when all goes well the chief cupbearer will help him to be freed but the Lord knew that it will not be so until Pharaoh the king dream. So the Lord made the Pharaoh dreamt, which brought Joseph before him.
Never depend on what you can do or who you have helped before but on the Lord who knows all things.
