The reward of faith

Joseph had been in jail a long time. Pharaoh put him there. But now, all of the sudden, Pharaoh needed Joseph.

Joseph had a stunning response. Rather than saying, “You have come to the right man.”, he acknowledged reality. Joseph couldn’t do it. God could.

There was clear risk to this approach. Joseph had faith in God. Joseph took the risk. God provided the reward. That’s just how God rolls.

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.” Genesis 41:15-16
