GENESIS 41: 39-40 (NRSV)

[39] So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has shown you all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you. [40] You shall be over my house, and all my people shall order themselves as you command; only with regard to the throne will I be greater than you."

There are moments in life when we are tried and tested. Sometimes those moments seem to extend past a few minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, to years and years.

In Joseph's case he suffered setback upon setback when he shared his dreams of greatness with his brothers. He was sold, cast away from his family, and even ended up in prison. But in one moment, everything changed. 

In one instant, with a few words, Joseph's life transformed. He went from prisoner to second only to Pharaoh in Egypt. In a split second his dreams became realized.

Stay the course, have faith, believe in your dreams. God is setting you up for greatness.
