Scripture: Genesis 41.
Genesis 41:37-40 (NLT)
37 Joseph’s suggestions were well received by Pharaoh and his officials.
38 So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find anyone else like this man so obviously filled with the spirit of God?”
39 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has revealed the meaning of the dreams to you, clearly no one else is as intelligent or wise as you are.
40 You will be in charge of my court, and all my people will take orders from you. Only I, sitting on my throne, will have a rank higher than yours.”
(How Can I apply what God is saying here to my life today?)
Pharaoh recognized that Joseph was a man “filled with the spirit of God.” You probably won’t get to interpret dreams for a king or president, but those who know you should be able to see God in you, through your kind words, merciful acts, and wise advice. Do your relatives, neighbors, and coworkers see you as a person in whom the Spirit of God lives? Each and every day we should seek to be more like Jesus. We should represent Him so well in our lives that others will recognize the qualities of Jesus in us, and want to be introduced to this Friend, Master and Lord of ours. Ask God for His help in this, won’t you?
(What I will ask of God, in order for me to properly apply His Word to my life)
Dear Lord, thank You for saving my soul. Thank You for working in my life to guide me and direct me in every aspect of life. Please continue to work this miracle in me so that I may be a noble, but loyal and loving representative of Yours. I pray that You will work on the lives of those that I will come into contact with today, so that they too may see Jesus and want to know You as Lord.
** I would be overjoyed to have the opportunity to pray with you about a need in your life that may, or may not have been highlighted by this Nugget today. Why not drop me a note and tell me about it? You may email me at:
