Yet the chief butler never gave Joseph another thought, he forgot all about him.” – Genesis 40:23
If men depended more on God’s word than they depend on the words of men, then there will be quicker acceleration in our success stories.
“I give you my word,” “I promise to do this” or “do that” a man will say and in expectation of that promise, we will rejoice, honour, revere the man just so we can get what he has promised only for him to disappoint on the day he is supposed to deliver.
Then we become disappointed and begin to blame God that why did the man not fulfill his promise. Well, I can give you an answer right now, because he is not God! He is a man!
The word of God said, “GOD is not a MAN that He should lie.” this makes it clear that it is in the nature of man to lie and to disappoint.
Joseph made the mistake of pouring out his heart to a man too, instead of God. Haven interpreted the King’s chief butler’s dream, Joseph begged him to help him out of the prison justifying his innocence but the chief butler, like a true man that he is, forgot totally about Joseph.
We see someone that seems to be in a place of authority and then we begin to worship him with the mind of obtaining favour from him only for him to enjoy the accolades and end up disappointing us. It’s only God that cannot go back on his word. If he has said a thing, he is credible enough to bring it to past. He does not forget, even if a sucking mother forget her child.
Even Joseph said it that it is God that grants the power to interpret dream. Don’t you think you have worshiped the words of man enough, why not give your dreams and visions to Him who does not disappoint and let him give you His sure word that will definitely interpret it.
Woe is he that puts his trust on man,and bless is he that puts his trust in the Lord..
