Until the time came to fulfill his word,
the Lord tested Joseph’s character.
-Psalm 105:19, NLT

God gave Joseph a vision for his calling, but then years passed before God’s word was fulfilled. Has God given you a vision and a hope as His scribe? Do you wonder if He will fulfill His word? He will! Until then, place yourself in God’s hands to build and test and refine your character in whichever ways He knows best.

Dear Lord, if you did it for Joseph, you will do it for me. Help me learn to be as committed to You in the midst of my trials as Joseph was. Prepare me during my days in the dungeon so that I will be ready when you call me to the palace. In Jesus’s name. Amen.
