It’s All About Him

“We both had dreams,” they answered, “but there is no one to interpret them.” Then Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams.” Genesis 40:8

I love the way my study Bible explains verse 8, which is why I decided to focus on this verse. “When the subject of dreams came up, Joseph focused everyone’s attention on God. Rather than using the situation to make himself look good, he turned it into a powerful witness for the Lord. One secret of effective witnessing is to recognize opportunities to relate God to the other person’s experience. When the opportunity arises, we must have the courage to speak, as Joseph did.” It’s not about us – it’s all about Him. Maybe that should be the theme of the Cupbearer and the Baker. These two men were two of the most trusted in Pharaoh’s kingdom. However, they had done something bad and now they were in trouble. Good ole Joseph jumps in again to save the day, he’s good at that, once again putting his pride or selfishness aside and turning all the attention and glory to the Lord. He was interpreting their dreams but gave the Lord all the credit. In this world it’s easy to get wrapped up in the “Me-Ness” of it all. We live in a “Me-Centered” world but really it should be God-centered. It’s all about Him.

Let’s focus on being God-centered this week. Let’s spend extra time in His word, in His presence, and in communication with Him and see how He transforms the world around us.

The prayer today is the chorus to Heart of Worship by Matt Redman.


I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You
It’s all about You, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You
It’s all about You, Jesus
