Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one; God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do.” Genesis 41:25 NKJV
The king of Egypt was troubled by a dream. He summoned his magicians and wise men. Not one of them could interpret the dream. He was told Joseph could interpret dreams.
Joseph was brought before Pharaoh who said, “I have heard it said of you that you can understand a dream, to interpret it.” Joseph answered, “It is not in me, God will give Pharaoh an answer of peace.”
The magicians and wise men of Egypt could not interpret Pharaoh’s dream because they did not have a relationship with God. The Lord did not reveal truth to them because their hearts were hardened to the truth!
When Joseph stood before Pharaoh He took great care to give God the glory. Joseph made sure there was no misunderstanding. It was Almighty God who spoke to Pharaoh in a dream. Only God could reveal the interpretation to Pharaoh!
Wisdom calls out in the streets and gathering places. Jesus is speaking to people all over the world. He wants to reveal truth to everyone. People are completely oblivious to the truth God wants to impart to them today. They have hardened their hearts to truth!
Joseph spoke the truth to Pharaoh and left the results of the revelation to God!
Do you have a relationship with Jesus? If so He is calling you to reveal truth to people who do not yet have a saving relationship with Jesus!
Jesus is not asking you to save anyone. The Lord is calling you to speak the truth to people and to leave the results of the revelation to Him!
When I consider the men and women of the bible I wonder if they were just regular people like us. I wonder if God created them with special gifts and unique talents. The answer to both questions is the same.
The heroes of the bible were regular people like us. God did create them with special gifts and unique talents so He could use them to bring other people to salvation!
God created us with special gifts and unique talents so He can use us to bring people to salvation today. God wants to accomplish great and mighty things with our lives just as He did with the men and women of faith in biblical times.
What great and mighty things does Jesus want to accomplish with your life?
Call out to Jesus. Ask the Lord how He wants to use you to bring truth to people who have hardened their hearts to the truth!
