We put God on a deadline of the deadline comes and goes, the enemy shows up and says where's your God. Now why is he silent if you ever been there start of the tunnel.

The Bible is wonderful in showing us how God sets things up before the king is going to have his dream years to come before that God is setting something up so the cupbearer and the baker have dreams in prison and they wake up and Joseph think he's an excellent servant, and so he notices there does not sums wrong. The day checks in with what was up and they both share. We had his drinking figured out we we we puzzle we we we just can't believe this happened the same same dream we we don't know what it means.

And Joseph said well I gotcha covered but now baker, you sure you want to know interpretation your dream yeah going to tell me on three days you will be dated, so you need to. But you know that call to give you. You need to make sure your family knows what insurance papers are, you will be out here in three days. Cupbearer in three days. Your dream means you can be restored to your position and Joe I love this and Joseph that when you when you get there you will be back in the throne room when you get there.

Remember me to Pharaoh.

See you never have to stop wanting justice just can't be preoccupied with this. Remember me to Pharaoh about me telling the man I got. I didn't do anything to deserve being here and do what you can to get me out of here because I do that I like people in your life.

Three days later they sent word.

He's out, and he and Joseph hi Massey to Imagine what's happening leaves in Joseph's mind a new count has started countdowns go on in your life and your heart in your mind Down when looks okay, now I see the light at the end now and you create visible timeline you see you looking holy you single people ever say I will be married by you know we're going to yes we're going there, no future in front were going there. I believe that by such incident, God will hook me up you set your date and that date comes and goes. When you get to when God has not met your deadline. Let's look at what Joseph did. Joseph is thinking he sets a little okay cool cupbearer is up there right now you try telling her about me right now I send me you later today. Tomorrow they go comes in for me. No way he would likely be signal when I told but you know that's easily something you can assume a guy in his position. He just asked for favor by somebody. He served very well and he gave good news to why would you want to hook him up so everything Artie got me of the town and saw Joseph is very easy to imagine. Joseph starts packing up here I go around encouraging other folks I go will be here to help you like a been doing a been a privilege to serve your but not your know you got to give each other. I mental get down to somebody who's prone to despair. I now need to be strong to do this. Time to time. Do you believe he felt next day nobody coming to getting next week nobody coming to get them next month.

Nobody is coming to getting next. Here are three of the cupbearer leaving and having cake. I remember the cupbearer lipids are learners you outside of his deliberate you do when there's no sign of your deliverance. You wait on the Lord because he knows why it hasn't happened. God has a thing. The Scriptures call in the fullness of time you know what we hate about in the fullness of time and then give us details every time you read in the fullness of time. You know that means when God's purpose was lined up which will circumstance like that. We want God to send us a five year plan want God to send us.

Okay, here's what's going happen send us some memo send us some updates you ever prayed and try to pray upon update okay Lawrence of this explained to me was going happen the rest of the year and he says nothing is one thing we always talk about trusting God work that God will bring his word to pass. That's a great level of faith learn to trust his word. Take him at his word, but you go past trusting his word and you can learn to trust his silence.

You missed that. I said you gotta go past learning to trust his word and learn to trust his silence. I got a learn to trust God when he's saying absolutely nothing and I'm here to tell you, God can be more silent than anybody you ever met in your life you pray and fast. I need a word. I try to sum it all had to try to bargain God tried to fast my went to what you say so just drink water, day and night in a hotel. I got dramatic hold up in a hotel and fed take member water in their big jugs of water, to stay in this day and night. All I might do is eat.

I may not even going drink this water going to sleep and I don't pray to go to Ford's days nothing but drink water and play when you get sleepy sleep wake up place among all B and he got six bagel coming as well be standing in front of me, give me instructions and I believe that hotel for five days later and God has said nothing.

Never forget one time earlier my California years when I was wondering where the people were that I came out here the past some corporate news hotel and find out where they a wide load beautiful wife to drop me NOW.

I am praying for you came pick me up for five days later it was so what the Lord say this drive home want to always ask a question want you to draw is about to get cranky when you heard from God only gets some soup so I can break this medleys on my not be talking but I don't get me something to my wife doesn't gird me know if you she was right.

He may not come when you want to understand he's God you don't get to dictate destiny destiny is not in your hands to all years went by after the cupbearer had left jail. Two full years, 730 days, slow days, Monday, and days.

No earthquakes, no words, no angels, no day in the Lord would say him to be there remain if yet 500 day that's good I got some I can check off the Lord said Jay you would always sell more spiritual you put it into JJ people prophesied in the Lord would say under the talk like that was not what the King James probably wanted to know what it be, still God can speak in 21st-century but we J in the Lord would say him to be here in 2521 more days and I shall deliver the gift that you good you got some to check off you get to a calendar I'm down to 499, two full years went by with no word years later Gen. has this listening to Dustin for victory with pastor Paul Sheppard, senior pastor of destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California, and he'll be right back with the second half of today's message.

God's plan for you without them is better than ever would've been with them as joint pastor Paul's wraps up today's message unrecognizable system can interpret none of the none of the soothsayers. None of the sorcerers in the kingdom. None of the spooky folk have a word in the cupbearer standing there and he sees all these folk come in if there was frustrated because none of them have a word and cupbearer just like people in your life will tell you to go to present you, why wouldn't the matter had he remembered the king had a dream you what you all matter in the folk who have helped you out help you out in your destiny like God get full keep disrespected you to keep you back. Most to keep you from God that causes what you want done with their cooperation. Best case scenario. Had he been remembered had the cupbearer remembered them talking about the King's the good mood that day and decide to go against want to his chief servant's wife and let this guy out of jail. So he's out of jail, to do what go back and be a slave you see what I'm saying to you, God's got your destiny in his hands. Quit tripping over folk who are mistreating you. God uses their missed treatment for his own purpose. Quit tripping over your disappointed years sometimes is the best folk and was disappointed that I don't want to like you want to hook you up. They just can't just can't put your hope in them. Diana Ross loaded it made me call follow this call my name. I'll be there to get the pin that never were in the window frame. The winter's cold. The baby to keep me from getting we love it when somebody thinks that way about us, but you're going to live long enough to find local feel that way about you and you let the right mountain show up and they knocked climbing a mountain to get to you that text you from the other side of the mountain. You know I wish I could be there thinking about you will be here but can't quite get crossed is not just something I'm going to be strong. Send best they can mold you got a kick out of Diane Dionne Warwick, Stephen Wunder, Elton John mode.

Keep smiling, keep shining knowing you can always count on me for sure that's what friends are for good times and bad times I'll be on your side forevermore. That's what friends are for Steve is that a bit when it came out to about us not always going be able to come through for you days your friends just can't cut it. They love you and all they can do fullness of time, Pharaoh hears about Joseph since were him go getting Joseph washes prepares himself into the presence of the king. Make sure no bitterness, no despair, no anger, that stuff is shaken off you. God will bring you in front of some folks and they don't need to see that mess on to get rid of that God bring you win.bring some folk in your life and you come up the trip and by their body.

Who did you wrong doesn't come up and I'm glad you finally several equipment I'm telling you what happened to me. The past can you just say I call you up.

You go back to my face. He came up there, ready you call for me sir, I had a dream. Nobody can interpret but I heard about you heard, you can interpret dreams Joseph so clear he's giving God the glory specs and got present I cannot, sir. But the God I swear he could tell me what I need to know about what you dream King said the dream Joseph interprets it clear is a bail, listen, I want you to know where the knowledge those candidates are still in the body of Christ.

God can give you a word out of nowhere that comes directly from heaven just got a practice is present.

God tell you everything you owe. Gotta tell you, don't take the plane got the best fairgrounds and all that's not that's not your don't drive down the street don't go there today. Not that store. Not that mall you get home and sleep and shot up their bodies laying around. Gotta learn the final where he leads Joseph tells him to drink knowledge of the dream tells me interpretation and gives him a word of wisdom out what to do. He said you need to appoint somebody because seven years of plenty are coming appoint somebody over this so that you can budget your prosperity. You know that's what you need you need to learn how to budget your prosperity. When God blesses you learn how to budget not just financially but in the enclosed financial learn to budget the time God gives you. Learn to budget the energy resource where learning is that when a seasonal life.

You can't just go all the way to you, hold you some margin. Summers are okay. Let's all run me all the way raggedy raggedy boundary you get my energy to get up today and then the next wondering about at the limit. I will pray for you not be that I'll be to you after while I know don't know you will make you want to minister to you that's not going be the day I meant to limit yoga learn what your limits are. That's why you're pushing past that and God's given you grace for what you need to do now he's gonna give you some for later on, but you gotta learn to reserve and so he taught them how to conserve, so you need to put some money over that what is nobody in my kingdom as wise as you and the Pharaoh then said, from this day on, you are second in command in each.

The miracle of that is he's not even an Egyptian, but it's God's purpose that's prevailing I want to let you know the purpose of the Lord is going to prevail in your life and when you get you where you're going. He's going bless you so well that he will not only have developed focus in you. But he's going to develop a new forgetfulness. God sold bless this man who had been the soul, apparently wrong for decades. God sold bless them that when he named his first child got married in Egypt. He named his first child, Manasseh, which means God caused me to forget all of my trouble in all that I went through in my daddy's household. God will not let us take into the next level bitterness and anger sicken them last thing I do somebody go that doesn't belong in the place of thanks so much for joining us for this Monday edition of Destin for victory and pastor Paul Shepard's message unrecognizable.
