Only God Has the Answer of Peace (Genesis 41)

Genesis 41:16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

God’s purpose in raising up Joseph was to be a testimony to the king of the most powerful country on earth. His message to Pharoah was, “You don’t need me (or any other man)! You need God; only He can give you an answer of peace.”

And essentially that is true for every person on the planet. They can look everywhere for an answer, for clarity amid the confusion, but only in God will they find an answer of peace. Others may claim to have the answer and be able to give peace, but real peace only comes from God.

Having said that, God used Joseph to deliver that message. And God in still in the business of using men and women to give His message.

So will we seek to build our own reputation, to develop our own kingdom, or will we be willing to be God’s messengers, sharing God’s truth with all men and women who come across our path?
