Ministering to Others (Genesis 40:2-3)


You find yourself in the midst of your trial. You may be at the doctor’s office, sitting in the corridors of a court house or holding a notice that knocks the wind out of your sails. In any event, you are trapped without any perceivable way of escape.It is important to remember that while you are in the midst of your trial or struggle, God will bring people to you for the purpose of you ministering to them.  

And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers. And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound. (Genesis 40:2-3)

It may be a coworker, whose world is falling part, who comes to you and shares his burden. You may walk into a room and find a friend grieving or the Lord may point out the countenance change in an individual . But regardless of how the event occurs, God will bring people to you and he wants to use you to make a difference in their lives.
It doesn’t take a spiritual giant to be a minister to others. It only takes a person who has experienced the presence of God and it is those individuals that the Lord will use to point people to him. So, while you endure with longsuffering, keep your eyes focused on the Lord and be prepared to share what he has done for you.
