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

Joseph is going to interpret a dream for Pharaoh. He was made for this moment. God will give him the answer. When he was a boy he knew that God would take him great places to do great things.

He is there now. He is going to interpret the dream but notice what he knew even in the moment. He knows that what he is about to do is the work of God in him not something that he is doing.

God is doing the work. He has no answers.

This is the greatest lesson we can learn. It is God who does all the good work in and through us.

God will take you to the moment and ministry He made you for. He will do in and through you great things. But you must always remember that it is not in you. Though we are privileged to be involved in great things it is never us but God doing the work.

While we are dreaming we often tremble. When dreams come true we sometimes think that we did something and that we are accomplishing the work. We begin to take the credit for the work.

Be careful to remember. It is not in me!
