You are currently viewing WISDOM OF GOD- JOSEPH AS A CASE STUDY


So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find anyone else like this man so obviously filled with the spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has revealed the meaning of the dreams to you, clearly no one else is as intelligent or wise as you are” -Genesis 41:38-39

One can boldly say that Joseph did not have a smooth ride. While he had a beautiful ending, the journey toward becoming the Prime Minister came with many bumps and rough ends. Of all the men that there were, Pharaoh found none other capable to lead the people, because he had experienced the wisdom of God through Joseph.

A famine was coming, plans needed to be made and Joseph was the perfect man for the work! He made effective plans, was wise in his doings, and ensured that sufficient food was stored up for the days ahead when there would be no harvest. One may wonder, “how was it possible to store up food for a whole nation for many years?” Joseph, applying the wisdom of God, made it happen! It is not enough to have the wisdom of God, but it must be applied effectively! Beloved, you are God’s gift to the world. Let the wisdom of God that is in you be vividly displayed in your actions. The wisdom of God has been given to us by the Heavenly Father for us to use! There are amazing things that can be done through you. Never look down on yourself. God has not done that; you should not either. You have the wisdom of the Most High God residing in you. There are no limits to the powerful things which you can do.

Declare it beloved; I am a wise being, one called to perform exploits. I have creative ideas, I am a flowing river of resources!

Prayer: Dear Jesus, may be wise in our dealings, conducts, and relations with others. Teach us to stay on the right path, even as you remain as our light and guide.
