When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream: He was standing by the Nile, when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds. After them, seven other cows, ugly and gaunt, came up out of the Nile and stood beside those on the riverbank. And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up.
-Pharaoh’s saw two consecutive disturbing dreams which had the same meaning. First, seven ugly cows swallowed seven healthy ones and then seven thin heads of grain that swallowed up seven healthy full heads. God communicated these adverse events to Pharaoh so that He may be recognized and honored as the King of kings, to caution them of the impeding drought, to revealed a divine plan of preservation for His people and at the same created an opportunity of prosperity for His servant Joseph. Through these dreams the concept of preservation and saving were birthed; given that there is a time and season for every purpose under heaven. Joseph advised Pharaoh to preserve grain during the seven years of plenty, and to consume and trade with it throughout the seven years of famine. These lessons are realistic in our society today. There are times we enjoy plenty of resources and revenues and other times we face scarcity. We are reminded to save up some resources during rainy days, and to consume and trade wisely during times of financial and economic quagmire. God has always been faithful to us despite the seasons that we undergo. He has always provided, protected, directed, preserved and sustained us through His abundant grace. God calls us to diligently seek Him despite the dungeons we are facing; be social, relational, physical, economic, financial, social; causing frustrations and difficulties. He calls us to Him when we labour and are heavily laden and He will give us rest; for His yoke is easy and His burden light (Mat 11:28-30).
Thank You Jesus for Your mercy and loving kindness upon us. You have revealed Yourself faithful during times of drought and times when You have blessed us with plenty; we glorify Your holy name Jesus. Remember Jesus when we labour are heavily laden; that You may give us rest. We humbly ask You Lord to continue protecting us, providing for us, sustaining us, directing us and giving us wisdom always. Remember us with favour Lord that You grant us fresh opportunities to thrive like You did for Joseph Your servant when he had lost hope in the dungeon. Bless our nation of Kenya Jesus and grant all our leaders wisdom that they may diligently serve You. Water our land Father that plenty may be found within our borders. Holy holy holy are You Jesus; Who was Who is and Who is to come. Amen
