It has been so amazing to trace the journey of Jacob, and now Joseph, through our BSF study of Genesis this year. Both men wrestled with GOD, struggled to understand all that GOD revealed to them, and ultimately acknowledged with full surrender that sovereign, Almighty GOD, can be trusted.
He calls us to walk through hard things, but He always has good purposes in mind – not the least of which are priceless glimpses of His heart along the way! And He never leaves anything unfinished. The road may be long, but there will be an end. There will come a day when each of us will look back, cherish the journey, and say with fresh clarity, “the LORD meant it for good.”
I pray these few verses in today’s breakfast “psalm” will bring you a new wave of hope and courage to face any rough road you are walking . . .
I won’t let You go unless You bless me!
If I have found grace in Your sight,
show me now Your way,
that I may know You.
. . .
Take hold of My strength.
My presence will go with you
and I will give you rest.
I will not leave you
until I have done
what I have spoken to you.
. . .
He who has begun a good work
in you will be faithful to complete it.
The LORD will perfect
that which concerns me.
It is GOD who works in you
to will and to do
for His good pleasure.
