God Has A Plan…  

JANUARY 23 & 24, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Genesis 42:8-9And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him. And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and said unto them, Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    I have worked in factories and restaurants in the past with people who were not happy with their boss. I have heard them say, “If I were in charge, I would do this or I would do that.” They claimed that they would change everything. There would be no more hardships for the little guy if they were the boss. Then it happened. They were put in charge. In addition to the promotion, they apparently got a free case of amnesia along with their new title. Everything they said they were going to do, they forgot. In fact, sometimes they were worse than the previous boss. Why do you think they would do that? It is all because they had forgotten the things they had said before. Those issues seemed unimportant anymore in light of their new responsibilities. They were in charge. They were now the BOSS!

    In today’s verses, it would appear that Joseph is being tough on his brothers. However, in the end he is being kind. Just remember, they had stripped him of his coat of many colors, put him in a hole in the ground, made fun of him, sold him into slavery, and implied to his dad that he was dead. He had every right to be upset with them for what they had done. Instead, he uses the power God has afforded him to do good for them. Why, because Joseph remembered the dreams God had given him years before, telling him this was going to happen. Everything that had happened to him was carrying out Gods perfect will. How could he be mad about what God had planned?
     

 

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

  Life might not seem fair. The world may seem like it is against you, against your God, and your faith. Well, let’s try to be a little like Joseph and not be too mad at them. After all, God told us in His Word it was going to be like this. We must use the power God has afforded us for their good and God’s glory. What power you might ask? PRAYER. Pray for them and then see what God may do through you.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
