“He was a teacher well versed in the Law of Moses, which the Lord, the God of Israel, had given. The king had granted him everything he asked, for the hand of the Lord his God was on him.” (Ezra 7:6) He and some Israelite volunteers set off on a journey to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple of God. Before they set out he chose to pray first and lead the people in a fast. “I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions.” (Ezra 8:21) This demonstrates his willingness to submit himself before God before taking up responsibility. It is still important to remember that God should always come first in our lives.

In the Gospel of John, the Lord proclaims to his disciples that the Holy Spirit “abides with you and will be in you” (Jn. 14:17). These words provided comfort and assurance that the Holy Spirit would indwell them, and that they would not be alone. There is record of the Holy Spirit influencing and indwelling his people throughout the Old Testament. Pharaoh believed that Joseph had the Spirit of God in him because of the wisdom he possessed (Gen. 41:38).
