“Interpreting dreams is God’s business” (Genesis 40:8). “I know what the dream means” (Genesis 40:12).
The dreams were given by God. Their interpretation was given by him. When we read about the dreams and their interpretation, we must not make too much of the part played by Joseph. Our attention is drawn away from Joseph. We look away from Joseph to the Lord. This is his doing. The glory goes to him – not Joseph. If we are privileged to play some part in helping others to see more clearly the plan that the Lord has for them, let us say, “Thank you, Lord.”
