Exalted by God

Tomorrow’s reading connects in one specific way.  In each case, God exalted someone.  In Genesis 41, after all the suffering Joseph went through, his faithfulness paid off.  He never gave up on God because he wasn’t getting what he wanted.  David states in Psalm 40 that he waited patiently for the LORD and He inclined His ear and heard his cry.  He brought him out of a pit designed to destroy him.  The result of his waiting faithfully through the hard times was seeing God’s mighty hand set his feet on a solid rock.  In Matthew, we see Jesus being elevated in front of Peter, James and John on the Mount of Transfiguration.  He hears His Father’s voice audibly saying, “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well pleased.”

Can you share with us a time when you waited and trusted God during a hard time in your life and you were rewarded?
