We generally forget that there is a responsible way to respond to the things of God particularly the prophetic. The Bible shows us what we need to do when handling the prophetic. It all begins with understanding the matter at hand. Understand the source of the word, the dream or revelation. Then understand the purpose, the message being communicated. Some words are from the flesh, the mind, the devil or the world. There are many voices. We need to understand the source. Then when we are certain this is God speaking we need to grasp the message, the purpose and the desired rest.
Understanding is the key that Pharoah needed with his dream and that is why he found Joseph and asked that He gives him understanding of what God had spoken. Let us seek to understand everything we think is of God so we can respond accordingly.
SCRIPTURE READING: Genesis 41:16 So Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, “[It is] not in me; God will give Pharaoh an answer of peace.”
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord as Your word keeps on shaping my life, may I grasp that it’s out of your love to hear from you in Jesus name, amen.
