Scripture: Genesis 40: 14. But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! The matter of relationship is vital because that is the key to accessing the treasure in man. Today, we shall examine the importance of relationships to our daily lives.

How important are relationships?

1. It provides the recommendation/ endorsement you need for the next phase of life: Without recommendation/endorsement, there is a limit to how far you can go in life! There are jobs you cannot get without the voice of endorsement speaking on your behalf.

There are heights you cannot reach without endorsement, there are products you cannot sell without recommendation. There are promotions you cannot get without endorsement etc.

Our anchor scripture reveals the relationship between Joseph and the Butler. Joseph had just interpreted his dream, here was Joseph drawing the attention of the Butler for necessary recommendation when he said:

Genesis 40: 14. But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:

For a period of two years, the Butler never remembered Joseph:

Genesis 40: 23. Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.

There are times when you expect people to remember you and recommend you to appropriate quarters yet they forget you! Oh you helped someone in time past and they seem to have forgotten you now and as such you have become bitter!


I have a good news for you, the God that made Joseph to be remembered will cause you to be remembered in the name of Jesus.

When God was set to visit Joseph, He made Pharaoh to dream a dream which no other person could interprete. That was when Joseph was recommended(Gen.41:8-14). It was as soon as Joseph was recommended, he was sent for:

Genesis 41: 14. Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

Joseph came out of the prison to the palace by recommendation but it took wisdom for him not to returned back to prison. This implies that when recommendation brings you out of your condition, it will require the wisdom of God for you not to revert back to your old condition.

Please understand that most times when the voice of recommendation/ endorsement comes, there is this other voice that often wants to cancel your recommendation. But I speak as God’s servant, any voice speaking evil against you just to assassinate your character, shall backfire in the name of Jesus.

Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! Don’t gamble with your eternal soul. Give your heart to Jesus today.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today
– Father, help me to maintain a relationship that can give me a recommendation tomorrow in the name of Jesus.

Prophetic Declaration :
– I Prophesy the recommendation you need for a change of story shall speak for you today in the name of Jesus.
– That voice that you need to speak for you that has been keeping quiet, may God compel him/her to speak in your favour today in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
