Ask God for the Answers that You Need

"I cannot do it," Joseph replied to Pharaoh, "but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires." (Genesis 41: 16)

Instead of seeking answers from other people, let us look to the Lord God, who lives in us by the power of His Holy Spirit:

"But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. . .the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. (1 John 2: 20, 27)

In fact, Christ is made unto us first as wisdom (1 Corinthians 1: 30), from which we then receive all other things.

When Joseph had interpreted Pharaoh's dream, he said:

"And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?" (Genesis 41: 38)

It was never Joseph who had answered the Pharaoh's question, but it was the Holy Spirit.

Job confirms this truth about the Holy Spirit:

"But it is the spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty, that gives him understanding."
(Job 32: 8)

Beloved, today you have the Spirit of God within you. You do not need anyone to teach you anything about God's will for you, for under the New Covenant, we all know the Lord, for He has placed His laws in our hearts and minds (Hebrews 8: 10-12).

Rest in the Holy Spirit's righteousness, peace, and joy (Romans14: 17), and His peace will rule in your heart to tell you what to do and where to go (Colossians 3: 15)
