From today’s reading in the One Year Chronological Bible dated 1/15:

Joseph’s situation looks bleak. He was sold off by his brothers, sent to a foreign land, and now is in prison for a crime he didn’t commit BUT the Lord is with him! God gave Joseph the ability to interpret the dreams of two prisoners and Joseph takes ZERO credit for this. One thing about Joseph is that he always points everyone to the Lord. Of course God’s interpretation of the dreams comes true but the selfish cupbearer (or butler) totally forgot about his buddy Joseph once he got sprung from prison. BUT God has NOT forgotten Joseph! In the Lord’s perfect timing, 2 years later, He brings Joseph out of prison and gives him insight on Pharaoh’s dreams which promotes Joseph to ruler over Pharaoh’s house and all of Egypt. Wow! What a drastic turn around we see in Joseph’s circumstances! So Joseph was 17 years old when he was sold off by his brothers as a slave and now he is a 30 year old man and a ruler of Egypt. Joseph marries, has 2 sons (Manasseh and Ephraim), and is appointed by the Lord to carry out God’s plan to save the nations from a great famine! Keep reading bc a family reunion is coming up…

(Genesis 40:1-23, Genesis 35:28-29, Genesis 41:1-57)
