Gen 41:2 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow. 3 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill favoured and lean fleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river. 4 And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke. 5 And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good. 6 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them. 7 And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream. 8 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.
Money, fame and power can do a lot for us, but there are many things that are not for sale. We can have the most luxurious beddings but a minute of sleep is not for sale. We can put everything in order and plan and budget to the last cent … but financial peace cannot be bought. Indeed, the best hospitals, doctors and health advise may be available to us … still we find health priceless even for the wealthiest of men. I read recently of a great inventor who had become one of the globe’s richest men, but an incurable cancer reduces him quickly to nothing. Pharaoh shakes off the first dream and decides to sleep again … only to be troubled again. Can you ever escape God? Even if you do not want to see a preacher … God can come to you when you cannot stop whatever he wants to paint in your memory. There are many truths, we consider too troubling and we do not want to hear them. But God can force whatever impression He so determines upon us. When God moves, nothing can shut him out.
All the magicians in your life will be disgraced and God proven true. All the wise men are only wise to the extent that God helps them to see. Only God can interpret His own dream and no other intelligence. Someone in contact with God is required to bring that interpretation. Are you troubled? Go to God. Find where God speaks … through His word, anointed preacher or prophet. Every trouble has an interpretation. God only moves through our troubled mind to make us seek Him knowing that when we seek Him and do so with all our hearts we will find Him. It is time to seek the face of the Lord. God is moving. Seek Him and find out what to do. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit speaking to your heart concerning the events troubling your rest. All your troubles will soon be revealed as steps to much greater grounds and mighty revivals.
This is to thank God for our Overseer, Pastor E.A. Adeboye as he celebrates his birthday. Sir, God will surprise you with His great moves for good in your life, in your family, in the Church and in the nations.
There’s no place I can hide from Your love
I can only survive through Your love
Show me somewhere to go a place You don’t know To cover my soul
On the wings of the dawn I might fly
To the ends of the earth beyond the sky
I can go anywhere But You’ll always be there Wherever I go
You know where I sit and where I stand
Each moment I live I’m in Your hands
I can’t get away from Your sweet Spirit
Lord, you’re never sleeping.
Prayer: O Lord, keep leading me to always seek your face. Amen
