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.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
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!

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

There are several churches in my area that require pastors (due to retirement or other reasons). Would you folk join me in praying that God will fill those vacancies with His choice of shepherds? I would appreciate that if you would. Thank you and bless you all. Amen
Amen to the prayers and comments of fellow bloggers
Doreen I join you in prayer to God to fill the church vacancies with people of his choosing. Our churches always need strong faithful leaders but the way the world is going it will be a trying time for those leaders as government seems intent on removing everything biblical from society.
Marilyn, thank you for standing in prayer with me for my granddaughter. May God bless you
