The Power of a Whisper
Day 5 Reading: Genesis 41:1-40
Pastor Lisa’s Journal
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I have had a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it. I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.” – Genesis 41:15
Pharaoh, one of the most powerful leaders in the world, has had two dreams and no one can interpret them. Joseph, who has been jailed for many years, is remembered for his gifts of interpretation. God reveals to Joseph the meaning of the dreams. Joseph warns Pharaoh of the coming famine and provides a plan for the nation to be saved. Pharaoh is so impressed with Joseph that he places him in charge of the undertaking.
God speaks to believers and those yet to believe. When we don’t understand what God is trying to tell us, God uses faith-filled people to help us. We are wise to listen.
Fill me, Holy Spirit. Make me humble, discerning and wise. Draw faithful and inspired people to my side to help me know your will. Help me to help others in return. May the words of my mouth be full of your truth and hope. May my actions bring you honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.
