The outstanding message from Joseph's is this – God has a plan for our lives. He has not forgotten you.

Today’s Reading: Genesis 41:38-42:38  

Key Verse: Genesis 42:9

Then Joseph remembered the dreams which he had dreamed about them, and said to them, “You are spies! You have come to see the nakedness of the land!”

Years had passed since Joseph shared with his father and brothers his dream of being a ruler and of them bowing down to him. Joseph had gone through really rough times: the pit, slavery, false accusations, prison. But through it all, he never forgot the dream and he was confident that God had not forgotten either. The message to us is this – God has a plan for our lives. He has not forgotten you. Jeremiah wrote, “I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me, and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you” (Jeremiah 29:11 & 12). Paul wrote, “All things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).


Once again Lord, I ask that I will think Your thoughts. I want only what You want. Therefore, please grant me the gift of Your chosen future for me, and like Joseph, for all my family too. I pray this in the Name of Jesus, the One who knew clearly His future and was obedient, even to the “point of death, even the death of the cross” (Philippians 2:8). Amen!


Like Jacob (Israel), I too love and desire the best for my children. I have previously mentioned my son, David Reynold, and the fact that he is a celebrated photographer. I want to commend my youngest son also. Ronald Wesley helped me daily with the original formatting of this two-year journey through the Bible (100words.ca) by making sure the technical procedure of posting it was correct. I’m not really computer savvy. Ron got up before 6 a.m. to read the Word and pray in preparation for hosting, along with his wife Ann.
