Men may forget you but God will surely remember you. He will send help and deliver you in due time. Joseph requested the chief butler to remember and mention him to Pharaoh but he forgot until God created the situation that announced Joseph before Pharaoh. Learn to put your trust in the Lord. Joseph did not need the help of man for his God-given dreams to be fulfilled. God will never share His glory with any man. You need God, not a god-father.
As the opportunity comes to help someone, use it without delay. See yourself as a conduit of the blessings of God. DO NOT hinder the flow. Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee - Proverbs 3:27-28. Do whatever you can to help that needy person now because a missed opportunity may never come again.
Seeing that the Jews were pleased when he executed James the brother of John, King Herod arrested Apostle Peter intending to kill him also. Now Peter was being held in a maximum security prison with 16 soldiers watching over him. The night before the day Herod would have executed him, Peter slept between two soldiers, bound with two chains, with soldiers on guard at the door to prevent his escape. However, Peter did not loose his peace, knowing fully well that the executioner would be coming for him in the morning.
There are secret things revealed in Scripture to enable man serve God acceptably and enjoy His promised blessings. Although these secrets are there in the Word of God, only those who search the Scriptures diligently will discover and profit from them. It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter - Proverbs 25:2.
God is so concerned about how we relate with Him after our conversion. He says my people perish for lack of knowledge. Whereas, iniquities and sins separate between man and God, redemption bridges the gap. Unfortunately, many saved people still see themselves as sinners and have chosen to follow the Lord from afar. But the Lord, out of His immense love is saying: return unto me; for I have redeemed you. Redemption makes the erstwhile sinner the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
