Joseph: From Slave and Prisoner to Second in Charge of Egypt

Genesis 41: 40-41  

Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.  And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.

 

LESSON

Joseph found himself a slave in Egypt, but he was loved and trusted by the people around him. One day, Pharaoh, the king of Egypt had a dream where he saw seven fat cows on the River Nile. Afterwards, The seven fat cows were eaten by seven thin cows. Joseph was known to have the ability to explain dreams, so he was called to the house of Pharaoh. After listening to Pharaoh’s dream, Joseph told Pharaoh that the seven fat cows resembled seven years of prosperity in Egypt, and the seven thin cows meant seven years of starvation following the seven good years. Pharaoh was to choose a wise man who would store food in the years of plenty to be used in the years of famine. Pharaoh knew that Joseph was this man, and he therefore appointed him governor of the land of Egypt.

Like Joseph, we have a destiny for our lives. What is it and how can we learn from Joseph’s life and how he realized his dream?
