Genesis 37-50

This is a little bit about the life of Joseph. Many things about his life ministered to me in ways I didn't expect.

The Lord ministered to Joseph in many ways, but I focused on when the Lord spoke to him and not what He said. First thing is that while Joseph was sleeping the Lord gave him dreams. Then after that his brothers threw him into a dry well. Then he went to Egypt, followed by prison.

To make it short, we don't read that God told him this or that. But we see the fruit. Potiphar saw that the Lord was with Joseph. The prison leader saw that the Lord was with Joseph. And even when Joseph said the meaning of the dreams of the cup bearer and baker of Pharaoh, but the cup bearer forgot about Joseph for two years. We see the fruit. When Joseph was second over all of Egypt, we don't read of him lashing out on Potiphar or the cup bearer. And, Pharaoh saw that the Spirit of God was with Joseph.
Where's my fruit like that?

An application is simple. Read and reread His Word and pray. That's where my fruit needs to come from.
