chronological day 14 :)

Please read Genesis 37, Genesis 38, 1 Chronicles 2:3-6, 1 Chronicles 2:8 and Genesis 39.  You know, it’s not my goal to make a comment on every thing that happens each day – if something stands out to me, I’m sharing it.  I’m just hitting a few “highlights”.  Make your own notes (comment here if you like – I’d love to have a dialogue with you!), and let the Word settle in your own heart.  Here’s what stands out to me today:

Unknown-1

I think it’s interesting that [what I consider] to be the beginning of Joseph’s story starts with these words: “This is the story of Jacob. The story continues with Joseph….” (Genesis 37:2 MSG). It’s continuing Jacob’s story because we are talking about Jacob’s family.  Family is important to God!

Genesis 39:23 tells us that “because God was with him; whatever he did God made sure it worked out for the best”.  Joseph doesn’t defend himself (“the Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still” like we’ll learn in Exodus 14:14 later on). Hard sometimes to let the Lord be your defense – but He can be trusted!
