Genesis 41:16 God Warns Even The Lost

“I cannot do it,” Joseph replied to Pharaoh, “but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires.” Genesis 41:16

Joseph had been thrown into prison for something he did not do. While there God was with him and gave him great favor with the guards. Later God gives him the interpretation of the dreams of two other prisoners that come to pass as said. Now Pharaoh has two dreams that no one can interpret. After some time of searching for someone to interpret them, someone tells him about Joseph and his ability to interpret dreams. Joseph tells Pharaoh that only God can give the answer to what those dreams mean.

Many people think that because someone does not believe in God, that God will not use or even help them at all. Pharaoh did not have room for God in his life. He was looked upon as a god himself. Yet, God gave Pharaoh two dreams. These dreams were to be a warning to Pharaoh and all of Egypt that a great time of harvesting would come, and then a great famine would come.

God cares for those who do not love Him. He is working to draw ever person to Him. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that the time of famine upon Egypt was a punishment upon them. It was just the way of nature and God was using it.

God used the dreams to give Joseph favor with Pharaoh. Through Joseph, God would get glory from Pharaoh. Pharaoh would realize that there was a God and that He spoke through Joseph.

People today, who do not know God, may have a dream or a situation in their life that you will have the answer from God for them. They may be questioning why something is happening or what to do next. God may use you to give them the answer they are looking for.

You must be open to God giving you the answers for those who are lost. Be willing to show them love and compassion for their situation. God loves them with a great love and wants to do good for them. He wants every lost person to know that He cares for them.

Are you willing to be used by God to touch the lost? To answer their questions?

Or will you let them remain lost and hurting?

I pray today that God will show you what the lost need to hear or see; that God will use you to reach the lost; that the lost will know you have a relationship with God; and that God will draw many to Jesus through you.
