Holy Spirit coming upon a man
VERSE OF THE DAY 📜
So Pharaoh asked them, “Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom is the spirit of God?”- Genesis 41:38
Pharaoh understood that Joseph not only had the right interpretation of the dream, but also the right advice to respond to the message from heaven.
Pharaoh had plenty of priests, magicians, and holy men. What he did not have (until Joseph) was a man with the Spirit of God. This made Joseph stand out among the others
Can we find such a one as this?
This is the first mention in the Bible of the Holy Spirit coming upon a man. It is interesting to note that it was in regard to more practical things.
Joseph didn’t have to preach a sermon or lead a prayer for Pharaoh to see the Spirit of God upon him. He could see it in his character, in his message, in his knowledge, in his wisdom, and in his humility.
Now, of course every Christian receives the Holy Spirit upon conversion. Being born again is the greatest miracle any human being can possibly experience, and it only happens by the omnipotent power of the Holy Spirit.
So the way to be filled with the Spirit is to be filled with his word. The way to have the power of the Spirit is to believe the promises of his word. So we should read the Word of God daily.
Heavenly father, we thank you for the word you have given us today. Whatever it takes, Lord, fill us with the Holy Spirit and any gifting you would be pleased to give us, as you gave to Joseph. Guide us, Holy Spirit- the breath of God to reach the Kindom of heaven to meet our Messiah, our Lord Jesus.
In the name of the father and of the son and of the holy spirit.
