Lesson points:

God is always in control - in the Bible, He influenced Persian Kings, Babylonian Kings, Roman Caesars - and here an Egyptian Pharaoh! His dream was not random scattered thoughts - it was a prophecy of the next 14 years in the nation of Egypt! Although Pharaoh had no idea what his vision meant, he clearly was troubled and sought answers from his trusted wise men...but to no avail! Present was the butler who finally remembered the Hebrew slave that had interpreted his dream 2 years before. (Spiritual application: Would Joseph have lost his faith in prison? Was he sulking in self pity? No! He knew that God was involved in every area of his life and His wonderful plan was about to become clear...!) In preparation to come before Pharaoh, Joseph was washed, shaved and clothed, then brought out to do something that none of Pharaoh’s advisers could do - work out what his dreams meant. Joseph displays humility again by explaining that the gift he had came from God, he was merely a spokesman. When he listened to Pharaoh’s dreams, God gave Joseph the interpretation right away. 7 cows were eaten by 7 skinny cows, then 7 full ears of corn eaten by 7 sickly ones - both dreams were similar in outcome - and in essence meant the same thing. It was double confirmation that God’s message was established. The translation given to Joseph - simple - 7 years of prosperity and abundance followed immediately by 7 years of utter famine that would make them forget the years of plenty. (Spiritual application: In the time of Elijah a famine that lasted three and a half years almost destroyed Israel, a SEVEN year famine would decimate Egypt and wipe it off the map - it is important to listen to God’s warnings). Joseph recommended that a discerning and wise man should be set over the land to oversee officers. To ensure the survival of Egypt he recommended that one fifth of all its produce should be stored to be used when God brought the promised famine. Pharaoh was impressed and convinced - all he needed to do now was appoint a man who fitted that description...!
