Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has shown you all this, there is none so discerning and wise as you are. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall order themselves as you command. Only as regards the throne will I be greater than you.”
Joseph had his dream about his family kneeling before him when he was in his youth. He endured being tossed in a hole to die, being picked up by slavers, being imprisoned in Egypt, and finally ascending to prominence as Pharaohs second in charge. He was 30 years old by this time.
When God gives you a dream or lays something on your heart, it may not come to pass for a long period of time. Joseph held onto what God had shown him, knowing that God’s plan for his life was out there, he just needed to press on through the trials he faced to see it realized. What has God shown you? See it through! It may take days, months, or even years to see God’s plan fully unfold, but when it does it will be amazing!
