Guidance

During the time of Joseph as told to us in Genesis 41, God spoke in the form of dreams. Today, He speaks to us through His Word and as we pray. God knows about the past, the present, and the future. He knows how each of us reacts during difficulty. It is important that we study His Word, pray, and listen so He can give us the guidance needed.

The dream of Pharoah was about the impending famine. There would be seven years of abundance followed by seven years of famine. The ability of Joseph to interpret Pharoah’s dream by conveying God’s thoughts to him impressed Pharoah. Also, Joseph laid out a plan for Pharaoh to help manage the impending famine. The concern Joseph had for the people of Egypt and the caring attitude of Joseph impacted Pharaoh so that he made Joseph second-in-command of all of Egypt.

Joseph’s witness to Pharoah about God’s thoughts affected many people around the world and our witness to those around us will affect the world in which we live today. The guidance God gives each of us will affect the future of our families, communities, and nations.

This day with God, put His guidance into practice. Use His Word and prayer in a powerful way to receive the answer you need. Remember, you are speaking and listening to the ONE who already has the answer.
