Who am I going to be?
Now it came to pass on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants. – Genesis 40:20 (NKJV)
On that day of his birthday, Pharaoh released both the chief butler (the cupbearer in some translations) and the chief baker. The Bible even adds that he lifted up both their heads.
Yes, our LORD, the King of kings has released us from our prisons. HE has even lifted up our heads. And we are happy with that. But, that is not the end of the story, is it?
The chief butler returned to his former glory and became a vessel that was used by our Lord; it was through him, Joseph was released and the purpose of the LORD was fulfilled.
The chief baker, though his head was raised among the servants of Pharaoh, was hung.
Yes, our LORD has released us from our prisons and He has lifted our heads among His servants. But, at the end, the question is who am I going to be? The chief butler or the chief baker? Will I returned to my former glory? Will the LORD use me as His vessel, to fulfil His vision through me? Or will I lose everything? Who am I going to be?
The choice is mine to make.
For the LORD declares, “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.” – Deut. 30:19
