A Lesson in Forgiveness
Anywho, there were 3 verses in particular that God used to speak to me today.
Verse #1 Genesis 41:16 When Joseph was asked to interpret Pharoah's dream:
"I cannot do it," Joseph replied to Pharoah, "but God will give Pharoah the answer he deserves."
I love Joseph's humbleness here. He was not about taking credit but giving God all the glory. LOVE that! My prayer is that I would do the same in all areas of my life.
Verse #2 Genesis 45:8 When Joseph was reunited with his brothers:
So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God.
Wow-they left him for dead and he sees God's providence in what they meant for evil.
Verse #3 Genesis 50:20 This verse goes right along with Gen. 45:8- an old stand-by
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good, to accomplish what is now being done-the saving of many lives.
LOVE< LOVE>LOVE> these verses
This time around on my 90 day journey, I'm keeping a journal to write down these verses and truths that God's teaching me along the way. Last time I read through the Bible, it was really for completion. This time it's for understanding and revelation. I'm so anxious to see all God has for me over the next 3 months!
