Spirit of God!
“And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the Spirit of God?” (Genesis 41:38).
This is the era of the Holy Spirit. He is being poured on all flesh. He has been giving the gifts of the Spirit. He is perfecting us in the nature of Christ by giving the fruits of the Spirit.
Now we have come into the days of the latter rain. The Lord God is in the heaven and Jesus Christ dwells in you as the hope of glory. The seven lamps of Spirit which had been burning as the seven lamps of fire in the heaven before the throne are within you today. The Holy Spirit has made you His church and dwells in you.
The Lord God makes you special through anointing. He gave Joseph the gift of seeing dreams and visions. Pharaoh was astonished when Joseph foretold his plans to him as when the period of famine will come and what the people may have to do to escape that evil. Though he had thousands of magicians and sorcerers in his nation, he witnessed, “There is no one as discerning and wise as Joseph.”
Today, I saw the news that Kerala State is immersed in water. The news said that due to inundation, there have been heavy damage and people numbering around 54 thousand have lost their homes and are made refugees. My heart craves with the thought that unlike Joseph the Chief Minister of Kerala is unable to foresee things through dreams and protect the state. Such a gift will be beneficial not only for the government but also to the family. The danger lying ahead could be prevented through this.
All the gifts which Joseph possessed were also in Daniel. Pharaoh was there in Egypt just as Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon. In whatever matter related to wisdom, knowledge etc., the knig sought clarification, he found Daniel ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were all in his realm.
Nebuchadnezzar had a dream and he was worried. What did the wise men of his nation say when he asked them about the dream he had and its meaning? “…..there is no other who can tell it to the king except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh” (Daniel 2:11).
In the world, there may be a number of spirits of idols, spirits of astrology and the spirits of sorcery with the magicians, but nothing could match the Divine Spirit. May God fill you with that Spirit! May He help you to reveal the hidden factors!
To meditate: “Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven” (Daniel 2:19).
