A deep cistern in Egypt.


Key Verse: Genesis 37:28

Then Midianite traders passed by; so the brothers pulled Joseph up and lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver. And they took Joseph to Egypt.


In Chapter 36 we learn that Esau refused to waste his life in bitterness. God richly rewarded his generosity of spirit. Chapter 37 tells of the dreamer. Be sure not to let your guidance come from dreams; they are 99% unreliable. However, in this case, God had truly revealed His plan to Joseph. When we hear from God, most of the time we should keep it between God and ourselves. When Joseph told the story of his dream to his brothers, it brought about a serious family feud. Indeed, God has many ways to bring about His will. He used this tragedy to put Joseph in Egypt so he could be tested and refined and then to save many lives, including his father and his family.


Lord, You promised wisdom if I would but ask You (James 1:5). I’m asking! Let me bring unity rather than discord. I pray this mercy through the merits of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen!


Again today, let me share with you more responses from engaged blog readers:

On my morning walk I was thinking and talking to my Lord about putting together scrapbooks for my grandchildren of things and notes I have kept over the years. I was asking that my grandchildren would see Jesus and learn to love Him more through the beautiful memories He has blessed me with. Then I came in and read your blog for today. I’m going to get right at it. ~ Katie

  2. God has always been good – it’s us that need His goodness, His help, His guidance, His wisdom, and His love. Lately I’ve been hearing over & over again the words of Hebrews 10:24-25:
    “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”

    Jesus is coming back soon – may God strengthen and bring all His people into loving unity. We are one body in Christ; many parts, many different gifts, but one body. Please Lord, help us to use the gifts You’ve given us to glorify You. In Jesus’s name, amen

  3. Yes, Esau’s actions toward Jacob are from a forgiving heart; both when he met Jacob on his return to Bethel; and then leaving Jacob the land their father stayed on, the land of Canaan! And the Lord blessed him.

    Lord I pray for a heart in tune with you; for an obedient heart, to glorify You! Amen!
