Give credit. We saw, a few days ago, how Joseph made sure to explain to Pharaoh exactly who was the one who would be interpreting the dreams that Pharaoh had. Now it’s Pharaoh’s turn to acknowledge God’s hand in this. Read Genesis 41:38-40

So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you are.
Genesis 41:39 NASB

Because Joseph acknowledged God’s power to interpret dreams, Pharaoh gave the credit to God as well. However, he went a step further and recognized the wisdom that Joseph had because he listens to God. Pharaoh had probably seen several people who acknowledge God, but then don’t follow through on what God says. But because Joseph does, God is able to use Joseph.

When God is using us, others see it. Would others recognize that God is the reason and the power behind what you do and say today? If not, have you really given him credit for what is done in your life?
