Joseph used his gift of interpreting dreams for two prisoners and seemed to get no reward.
Joseph begged the butler to plead with Pharaoh on his behalf.
Genesis 40:14-15 NKJV
“But remember me when it is well with you, and please show kindness to me; make mention of me to Pharaoh, and get me out of this house. For indeed I was stolen away from the land of the Hebrews; and also I have done nothing here that they should put me into the dungeon.”
The butler was restored just as Joseph prophesied.
Genesis 40:21 NKJV
“Then he restored the chief butler to his butlership again, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand.”
The butler promptly forgot Joseph.
Genesis 40:23 NKJV
“Yet the chief butler did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.”
When Joseph’s Kairos time came, the same butler remembered him.
Genesis 41:9-10 NKJV
“Then the chief butler spoke to Pharaoh, saying: “I remember my faults this day.”
The butler told Pharaoh of the baker’s dream and his own dream in prison.
“we each had a dream in one night, he and I. Each of us dreamed according to the interpretation of his own dream.”
The butler then spoke of Joseph.
Genesis 41:12 NKJV
“Now there was a young Hebrew man with us there, a servant of the captain of the guard. And we told him, and he interpreted our dreams for us; to each man he interpreted according to his own dream.”
He testified of the accuracy of Joseph’s predictions.
Genesis 41:13 NKJV
“And it came to pass, just as he interpreted for us, so it happened. He restored me to my office, and he hanged him.”
May this “Kairos moments” release great favour into your life. May people who forgot you remember you, in Jesus’s name.
