“What do we do now?” That seems to be the question as we watch our world unravel. Are any of us safe? How can we avoid panic? Where is God?
God was with Joseph when his world unraveled and unthinkable circumstances overtook him. Instead of returning home to enjoy dinner with his father, he was shackled to other captives, walking in a human caravan to Egypt. Never could he have envisioned such a drastic turn in his life.
Though we are near to ending Joseph’s story in our daily devotionals, I am feeling the need to write from a new place. The promises of God are what keep us steady, focused, and hopeful. Our hope is not be being well, staying well, and life returning to normal. Our hope is in God who is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
For the unforseen future, I will be beginning this series. Each day will bring another promise from the book of Isaiah. Are they are you and me? Ah yes. The promises of God, in Christ, are yes, and amen. 2 Cor. 1:20
Isaiah. This prophet paid with His life to speak the heart of God to those who love God. In Him we live and breathe and have our being.
Join me in breathing and remembering that we are secure in the arms of Jesus. As for any of you who are asking about the ending to the book of Joseph, I will be finishing the devotional series in private and then offering you a free e-book download of them all.
As we go into a weekend where the news is uncertain, know this. Our Yahweh says ~
Even before they call, I will answer, and while they are still speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24
