And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is the Spirit of God?”
A life of significance is marked by an overriding sense of direction, as we looked at yesterday. But it’s also marked by a new dynamic.
As we see in today’s verse, Pharaoh noticed that there was a different spirit in Joseph. In fact, everyone noticed it! This man—Joseph—had a different spirit about him because the Spirit of God was living in him…giving him a different, high-energy spirit about life.
Have you ever noticed that successful people typically have very high energy levels? Rather than being slow or lazy or just trudging through life, they are motivated, trekking purposefully through life.
People who have high emotional and spiritual energy levels often have a physical response that is positive. They are generally healthier. And they live at a God-directed pace…not a frantic, hurried, or stressed out pace.
Which makes me wonder, does this kind of person describe you today? Are you worn out, stressed out, and put out? If so, ask the Holy Spirit living in you to revitalize your heart and mind today.
You may work long hours and you may get weary. But that hard work can be done with joy and purpose and enthusiasm when it is empowered by the Holy Spirit Who lives in you!
A life of significance is marked by this kind of dynamic. And I pray you will know it today!
the Holy spirit has the power to give you a new dynamic to give you a life of true significance.
