Genesis 41, Pharaoh told Joseph about his dream. “I was standing upon the bank of the Nile River, when suddenly, seven fat, healthy-looking cows came up out of the river and began grazing along the riverbank. But then seven other very skinny cows came up from the river and ate up the seven fat ones and they were still as skinny as before! Then I had another dream. This time there were seven heads of grain on one stalk, and all seven heads were plump and full. Then, out of the same stalk, came seven withered, thin heads. And the thin heads swallowed up the fat ones! Joseph said “Both dreams mean the same thing. God has showed you what he is about to do: The next seven years will be a period of great prosperity throughout all the land of Egypt; but afterwards there will be seven years of famine that will consume the land. The double dream gives double impact for God has decreed it, and it is going to happen soon. Find the wisest man in Egypt and put him in charge of administering a nationwide farm program. Let Pharaoh divide Egypt into five administrative districts, and let them gather into the royal storehouses all the excess crops of the next seven years, so there will be enough to eat when the seven years of famine come. Pharaoh said, “Who could do it better than Joseph? For he is a man who is obviously filled with the Spirit of God.” Turning to Joseph, Pharaoh said to him, I am hereby appointing you to be in charge of this entire project. What you say goes, throughout all the land of Egypt. I alone will outrank you.” Then Pharaoh placed his own signet ring on Joseph’s finger and declared, “You in charge of all the land of Egypt.” GOD CAN TAKE THE WORST TIMES IN YOUR LIFE AND CHANGE THE SITUATION IN ONE MINUTE. Romans 8:28 And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans.
