30 years of age! When Joseph was appointed as second in command in Egypt.


Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I had a dream, and no one can interpret it. But I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.”

I cannot do it,” Joseph replied to Pharaoh, “BUT God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires.”

 …“And now let Pharaoh look for a discerning and wise Man and put him in charge of the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh appoint commissioners over the land to take a fifth of the harvest of Egypt during the seven years of abundance. They should collect all the food of these good years that are coming and store up the grain under the authority of Pharaoh, to be kept in the cities for food. This food should be held in reserve for the country, to be used during the seven years of famine that will come upon Egypt, so that the country may not be ruined by the famine.”

The plan seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his officials. So Pharaoh asked them, “Can we find anyone like this man – Joseph, one in whom is The Spirit of God?”

Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you (training ground was his position in prison! (So the warden put Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison, and he was made responsible for all that was done there. Genesis39:2.) 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.”

We could tarry on this point; but rather we will focus on a major point: Pharaoh asked them, “Can we find anyone like this man – Joseph, one in whom is The Spirit of God?”

Ding, ding, ding!


And we pray:

Father LORD, El Shaddai. You are ALL! Awesomeness cannot begin to describe The Indescribable. Father, wash me to a sparkle with The blood of Jesus. Be in my heart, spill out into my communication. Thy will be done in my life I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen
