God does not need your help to fulfill His word!

Genesis 41:16 “I cannot do it” Joseph replied to Pharaoh, “but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires” 
Joseph made it known that his talents, abilities and favor came from God. 
He did not try to take credit for what God was doing; he was but a yielded vessel God was using. 
Are you feeling weary and over-burdened because you are trying to do things in your own strength or timing? 
Joseph understood he could do nothing without God. 
He knew that only God in His sovereign wisdom and timing would answer. 
Often times we feel pressure to make things happen. 
How many times have we made a situation worse by not waiting on God? 
We see this with Abraham and Sarah, instead of waiting on God to fulfill His word and promise, they moved in the flesh and tried to help God out. 
God does not need your help to fulfill His word. 
God only asks for our obedience and to move in faith. 

God is a masterful strategist and He orchestrates things according to His divine will and purpose. Joseph knew, unless God sent the interpretation of the dream it was pointless. 
Joseph did not get in front of Pharaoh and act like it was of his own doing. 
Joseph said straight way, “I can do nothing!” Is this your testimony today? 
Are you convinced it is your strength, education, personality and or connections opening doors and making ways? 
I caution you to remember…unless the Lord builds the house, those who labor, labor in vain -Psalms 127. 

Every good and perfect gift comes from above, coming down from the Father James 1:17. 
It should be your daily practice to acknowledge God and be thankful and grateful for all He is doing. Our lives should be a reflection of Him.  
There should be a continual overflow of thankfulness in your heart and an all-out dependence on God. 
Knowing we can do nothing without Him. 
· Humility · Thankfulness · Dependence on God 
These three traits should be seen operating in your life. 
If they are not, start working to reflect them.
