None to Declare

In a time of great prosperity God spoke to Pharaoh through a dream. Even though God spoke, Pharaoh did not understand the meaning of the dream. Pharaoh stated this clearly, “I told this unto the magicians, but there was none that could declare it unto me.” He could not understand for two reasons. He could not understand because spiritual things are only discerned spiritually (1 Corinthians 2:14). Additionally, he could not understand because there was no one there that could declare it (Romans 10:14-15).

In all of the land of Egypt there was no one that could declare God’s truth to Pharaoh! This Pharaoh represents the three billion that have no one to declare unto them the Truth of God. They have no Bible, no church, and no missionary. These unreached peoples live in darkness, groping for meaning and purpose.

For Egypt, God had a plan. It was Joseph. There WAS one to declare! God had prepared Joseph for this day and for this people. Psalms 105: 17-19 says, “He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: until the time his word came: the word of the Lord tried him.” Ironically, this jailbird, this slave, this outcast, this abominable shepherd was God’s perfect choice to reveal His Word and His plan to Pharaoh and eventually to the world.

God has a plan to reach everyone in this world. The Lord is “…not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” I believe God prepares every believer to reach out to someone. How is God preparing you?
