SCRIPTURE UNION DAILY GUIDE 26TH JULY 2022 DEVOTIONAL

Topic: “I remember my faults today.”

Opening Prayer: Oh Lord, grant me divine guidance as I read and meditate on your word in Jesus name.

Scripture: Genesis 41:1‐13

Question(s) for Reflection
• What truth is God revealing to me in this passage?

God brings things to the oddest people’s minds in order to serve His purpose. Who would expect him to reveal the future to Pharaoh, a heathen ruler, through dreams? But who would have better carried the dreams forward promptly but Pharaoh? Separated from his beloved father, sold as a slave by his brothers, unjustly imprisoned for refusing to commit adultery, and forgotten in prison, Joseph nevertheless was being prepared by the Lord God to establish the Israelites as a nation.

What lesson does this teach you? Magicians and wise men in those days were very powerful men, but their power was satanic. They studied sacred arts and the sciences of their time, read the stars, interpreted dreams, foretold the future, and practised magic. The fact that with all their knowledge, none of them could interpret the king’s dreams must remind us that it is God alone who gives the right interpretation. What should we do when we remember our faults like the cupbearer (v.9)?

Practice/Word Application
Thought: God still works today in the same way he did in Joseph’s time. We can rely on Him.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
• Lord, help me to wait patiently for your appointed time.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with
Mark 10:27; Isaiah 4‐6
