Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt.
-Presence in Hebrew is written as panim & it means appear, manifest, arrive, ubiety & existence.
-The Lord revealed to Joseph Pharaoh’s dream which brought out his leadership skills & talents at age 30 which can be defined as his appointed time. Age 30 is very significant in the Bible for its when priests could serve in the tabernacle of meeting (Num 4:3), Ezekiel was called by God (Ezek 1:1), David became king (2 Sam 5:4), Jesus started His ministry (Luke 3:23) etc. Some of us have reached their point of prosperity & others are still on their way to success. To some; getting there has been difficult like Joseph who faced many challenges like, being thrown into a pit, sold as a slave & imprisoned before he could mature to stand before Pharaoh & the Egyptians. The majority don’t want to see the struggle that one has endured but only associate with ones success without looking at the process. With prayer & perseverance; Joseph was able to conquer these challenges before he became second in command in a foreign land. In the same way; we are reminded to thank God in our current situations, praise His name for the far He has brought us & trust that He is present in our journey to success for in all these things we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ.
Lord our Father we come before Your holy presence in humility asking for Your mercy. Have mercy on us & on the whole world; Lord & forgive us all our sins. You have called us to be fruitful, to multiply, fill the earth & subdue it, direct us in Your purpose for our lives. You have said that we are more than conquerors in all things Jesus, cover us, our families, neighbors, friends, leaders, president & nation with Your blood, & journey with us so that we may attain that which You have promised. Fill us with wisdom, knowledge & understanding as You prepare us to bear much fruit. We thank You, praise You & worship You in all things. Amen
