Will you rejoice and embrace him, or remain bedfellows with your seared consciences? So Joseph applies even more pressure. " (vv. 14-15) "In all this," F. B.

The prison garments were quickly thrown away and replaced with "garments of fine linen" and a necklace made of gold (v. 42b). Next, Joseph was given his own company car, Pharaoh's "second chariot," to be driven throughout Egypt to proclaim the new prime minister's public authority. " And he set him over all the land of Egypt. " (vv. 43-44) Now if Joseph's newly acquired territorial and financial authority didn't bother you, seeing him surrounded by soldiers shouting for everyone to bow the knee and show respect probably does.

Who executes justice for the oppressed; Who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free. (Ps. 146:3-5, 7) The next time you are feeling forgotten, forsaken, abandoned, and disillusioned, remember that there is One who is unfailingly trustworthy. Here are some Scriptures that will help bring this to mind. 1 Promises like: "Can a woman forget her nursing child, And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you. " (Isa. 49:15-16) Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
