2 Chronicles 32:1-33; Ezekiel 48:1-35; 1 John 2:12-29

But think on me when it shall be well with thee. Genesis 40:14

What Joseph did for the butler, the Lord Jesus has done for us. We, too, had offended our king and had been cast into prison for doing so (Gen. 40:1). He suffered the wrath of Pharaoh; we, the wrath of God. But just as the prophetic word of Joseph saved the butler and gave his life back to him, in a similar way, the word of the Lord Jesus, when believed, has the power to save and restore our lives back to us. In return, the Lord asks us to think on Him when it is well with us. What is your thought for Him today? —Shane Johnson

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me. —Henry Lyte
