Forgotten? – Genesis 40:23

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Genesis 40:23
The chief cupbearer, however, did not remember Joseph; he forgot him. Sometimes we can go through life and feel like we’ve been forgotten. Not just by people, but YHWH as well. It’s not that He’s not listening. He’s listening for sure. Yet, there might be a certain timing that YHWH is wanting to take place.

Our timing is hardly ever His. But that doesn’t mean that He’s forgotten you. He could be working in the background on many other things. Maybe in you. Maybe in others. Maybe getting situations ready for you. Don’t move ahead him. Wait on Him.

Think of it this way. Your a chess piece on a chess board. You see a move that can be made where you can attack. Yet, YHWH is not moving you there. You get anxious because you think the opportunity is going to pass. So you decide to make the move on your own. Then the opponent’s bishop, that you didn’t see, takes you out. All because you didn’t wait for him to prepare the way.

He’s not forgotten you. He’s just getting things ready.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Here's something interesting to consider:
