Loving Father

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Genesis 46:1-27

After adjusting to the shocking news that Joseph is alive and is ruling over Egypt, Jacob gathers together all of his family and possessions and starts the journey to Egypt. On the way, he stops and offers sacrifices to God at Beersheba, and as God had done several times before, He responds to Israel (Jacob) through a dream.

You see, God knows that even though Israel is eager to see Joseph, he is still feeling unsettled and fearful about moving his family and possessions to Egypt. In response to Israel's worship, God lovingly reassures him about the move by telling him not to be afraid, reaffirming His prior promise of making Jacob into a great nation, and then telling Israel that He would be with him up until he takes his final breath.

What stood out to you most about God from this passage, and why? What's one example of how God has shown himself to be a loving Father to you? Tami

God comes to Jacob in a vision as a loving Father letting him know that he has nothing to fear that God was going to be with him all the way to Egypt with his entire family and God assured Jacob that He will keep His promise to make him great nation.

One vivid example that God forgave me as a sinner when I accepted at 9 years old and that He has been with me every since and kept His promises to me to always my Heavenly Father!
IT is good to remember God being faithful to me to us.
