Joseph had received revelation and understanding from God for the dreams of the chief cupbearer and the chief butler. Joseph wants out of prison, and he asks the cupbearer to take his appeal to Pharaoh himself. But nothing happens for two full years. God is with Joseph, it is true, but Joseph must learn patience through what he suffers. Dreams have brought Joseph trouble, but they also provided a means to impress two royal officials in prison about Joseph's abilities. More dreams are on the way in this chapter. At one level, the dreams of Pharaoh, the ruler over Egypt, will confirm the dreams that Joseph had when he was 17 years old. By interpreting Pharaoh's dreams, Joseph will show that he can rule and have authority in Egypt, for "the Spirit of God" is with him. The prophetic dreams of Genesis 37 are about to be fulfilled.
Pharaoh, king of Egypt, heard that Joseph could interpret dreams.
Pharaoh asked Joseph to interpret one of his dreams.
Pharaoh’s dream had seven fat cows and seven skinny cows in it.
Pharaoh also said he dreamed about seven good heads of grain and seven ugly heads of grain.
Joseph explained to Pharaoh that God was trying to tell him something. The seven fat cows and the seven good heads of grain meant seven good years. For seven years there would be plenty of food in Egypt.
The seven skinny cows and seven ugly heads of grain meant there would be seven years of famine. A famine is when there is little or no food in the land.
Joseph told Pharaoh that he should choose a wise man to be in charge of Egypt. This man would set aside food during the seven good years and save it for the time of famine. Pharaoh listened to Joseph. Joseph was chosen to be in charge of Egypt! To find out more, read Genesis 41:14- 57 in your Bible
