TOPIC: THE DREAMER TURNED DREAM INTERPRETER
OPENING PRAYER: My dear heavenly Father, as I study your word, let it be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
SCRIPTURE: Genesis 40:1‐23
Many of us grumble, complain and get angry when in trouble or when treated unjustly. How did Joseph respond? He maintained his faith in God, attended diligently to his responsibilities and cared for others. His concern for others and his faith in God made him a useful vessel (vs. 6‐8).
Dreams may come to men, but it is God who grants interpretation and Joseph did not overlook that. He gave the glory wholly to God. He was faithful in giving the interpretation of each person’s dream. Sometimes we want to soften the blow by using pleasant words.
But no, we should give God’s message as it stands without looking at the people’s status or situations. Despite ministering to people, some can be very ungrateful! When we think they will remember us, they ignore or totally forget us. Joseph had to learn to trust in God only.
Do we ever forget those who have ministered to us, and organizations like Scripture Union that ministered to us while in school? Thank God that his time of rewarding will come.
