DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Genesis 44-47
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“All the persons who went with Jacob to Egypt, who came from his body, besides Jacob’s sons’ wives, were sixty-six persons in all. And the sons of Joseph who were born to him in Egypt were two persons. All the persons of the house of Jacob who went to Egypt were seventy.” (Genesis 46:26-27)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
God is Love (1 John 4:16), and love conquers all. In today’s study of the Bible, it becomes clear that, regardless of the pains and the sufferings that Joseph experienced in Egypt because of how his brothers sold him to traders, God’s love in Joseph’s life was able to overcome all of it. Joseph was able to forgive his brothers, and was able to extend genuine love to his brothers and his entire family. In addition, God’s wisdom in Joseph life was also evident in how Joseph managed all the resources that were placed under his care from Pharaoh, king of Egypt. And, as noted and described in Psalm 37:23, the steps of Joseph were ordered by God, and God blessed and comforted Joseph that he was able to rejoice with his family. The truths of the Bible prove that all the words of God are pure, and that God always protects those who trust in Him (Proverbs 30:5). Today, in a similar manner, God has chosen to provide salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ to all people that will come to Him for salvation.
SALVATION REMINDER NOTE:
God loves you so much. God does not want you to perish. Today is the day of salvation. If you are not yet saved, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. And, by the grace of God, if you are already saved, share the message of salvation with others, and God will greatly bless you in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
