Genesis 40:8 -- On Including God

"And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you."
Genesis 40:8

I like that Joseph is so confident in God that he would help him understand the interpretation of dreams.  Nephi has a similar experience when his father had a dream and he wanted to understand it.  He prayed, knowing that God could not only show it to him, but help him understand the interpretation.

I think so many things in our lives are harder just because we don't think to ask God about them, or we don't trust him to help us.  Joseph and Nephi, and the Brother of Jared, and so many of the other people that meet in the scriptures--they believed that the Lord could help them with any task, and he did.  They included God in their daily lives in a way that I think sometimes we just don't.

Today, let's show that we always remember God and that we put him first by including God in our lives, and asking him to help us with whatever we are facing.  Whatever it is, if it concerns us, then God cares, and he wants to help, and he will if asked in faith.  Let's work on having the faith that Joseph had, and trust the Lord that he will help us with everything that we do, as we are obedient and trust in him.
