A Thought for Your Day

Gen 41:15-16, Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I have had a dream, but no one can interpret it; and I have heard it said about you, that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.” Joseph then answered Pharaoh, saying, “It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh a favorable answer.” This is a true servant’s heart when an opportunity to take glory is instead given to Yahovah.

Yahovah lets his servants know beforehand what He is going to do so the wise and discerning may have time to prepare their household. As in the case of Pharaoh’s dreams Joseph was used by Yahovah to make provision for the population of Egypt plus his own family in Canaan. YHVH used the famine to bring Jacob and his sons and their families to Egypt where they grew into a multitude of peoples as promised to Abraham so many years before.
