Genesis 42:3-6: Sure Word.
“3 Then ten of Joseph’s brothers went down to buy grain from Egypt. 4 But Jacob did not send Benjamin, Joseph’s brother, with the others, because he was afraid that harm might come to him. 5 So Israel’s sons were among those who went to buy grain, for there was famine in the land of Canaan also.6 Now Joseph was the governor of the land, the person who sold grain to all its people. So when Joseph’s brothers arrived, they bowed down to him with their faces to the ground.” NIV
If God says something will happen, it will! We need not doubt it. The miraculous annals of fulfilled Biblical prophecy tells us it is so.
Of course, we must be clear we are not deluding ourselves; that we are not imagining God said it. But if it is in the Bible, and we understand it correctly, the Lord will bring it to pass in His own good time – even if it entails years of patient waiting on our part.
In this incident the ‘’sheaves’’ were gathering around the ‘’sheaf’’ and bowing down (Gen.37:7). His brothers had asked: ‘’Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?’’ (37:8). The dream fuelled their hatred. But it was God’s Word, and that Word is unstoppable.
‘’Not a single one of all the good promises the LORD had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came to true’’ (Joshua 21:45 New Living Translation).
PRAYER: Please forgive me, Lord, for the times I walk by sight and not by faith; when I live on feelings and not on every life giving Word which proceeds from your mouth
