Scripture

Genesis 41

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Pharaoh’s dream mean? How did God use it?

Application

Can I look back at my life and see how God has used circumstances that were painful at the time to work out for my good?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, Thank You that Joseph was betrayed by his brothers, falsely accused by Potipher’s wife, and wrongly imprisoned, because You used all of those circumstances to bring him before Pharaoh and become vice-regent of Egypt. As a result of that, his family and the future nation of Israel was saved. Thank You that You use even the difficult and trying circumstances in my life for my good and Your glory if I am devoted to You. Keep me devoted to You! I ask You in Jesus’ name, Amen!

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
