Genesis 41 - Key

v16

And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, [It is] not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

I think it would have been so easy for Joseph to take the credit for interpreting dreams, but instead, He gave the Lord the credit, and the Lord blessed him so much it was ridiculous.

Application

Proverbs 3:5,6
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

For a long time, I've wondered, how do I apply these verses to acknowledge Him? I think what Joseph did is a great example of that. I'll acknowledge the Lord by giving Him the credit when He gives me an ability.
