Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you. 40 You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you.” (Genesis 41:39–40, NIV)
Who would have thought that a young man sold into slavery would become second only to the Pharaoh in the most powerful nation of the day?
Why do you think God sent the dreams he did to Pharaoh? Do you think it unusual for God to work in this way?
In what ways did the Spirit of God guide Joseph, not only in this story but throughout his entire life? What was required from Joseph for the Spirit to work in the way he did?
How can you allow the Spirit of God to not only be present, but also direct how you go about your life?
