The Life of Joseph – Day 8

Genesis 40:8-11

“We both (the baker and the candlemaker) had dreams,” they answered, “but there is no one to interpret them.”

Then Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams.”

So the chief cupbearer told Joseph his dream. He said to him, “In my dream I saw a vine in front of me, and on the vine were three branches. As soon as it budded, it blossomed, and its clusters ripened into grapes. Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes, squeezed them into Pharaoh’s cup and put the cup in his hand.”

The Thought

Joseph’s time in prison was also a part of God’s plan! He had good a relationship with both guards and prisoners and that resulted in him hearing a huge variety of stories.The Lord supplied everything he needed, even helping him become a dream interpreter! He was not a stranger to dreams having irritated his brothers by telling them what he had dreamed at a much younger age (See day 2).

Dream interpretation is a ministry that only a few churches have today, but the Lord still gives inspiration when people ask Holy Spirit to help them decipher their own dreams or what someone else has dreamed.

More and more prophets in our twenty first century are having dreams which have important significance in the battles they are facing personally, as well as those of the church, which is under more and more pressure in our heathen world where the devil thinks he is winning.

Action

Think about other dreamers in the Bible, and read some of their stories today:- Jacob, Joseph’s father (Genesis 28), Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 2), Abimelek (Genesis 20), Joseph, the husband of Mary (Matthew 1&2).

Many churches today have ministries in local prisons holding worship services and spending time listening to stories of regret, sadness, worries, and sometimes dreams.

If your church doesn’t do that maybe it is something to pray about or speak about to your pastor or priest.
