“I cannot do it,” Joseph replied to Pharoah, “but God will give Pharoah the answer he desires.”
Of course, this is Joseph’s response to Pharoah’s request of Joseph to interpret his dreams about the cows and grains. It’s a short verse, and seemingly unimportant, and it is highly likely that most of us would scramble right past it without giving it much thought. But I realized today that often my attitude is not anything like Joseph’s here. I don’t give God credit when I use my skills that I am most known for (though, I’m not exactly sure which skills those would be). I am so self-absorbed that I don’t stop to remember that it is not me, but Christ in me that enables me to do anything.
