Genesis 47

Good morning y’all. Today we are in Genesis 47. In this chapter Joseph introduces his family to Pharaoh; Egyptians become slaves to Pharaoh; Isreal prospers in Goshen and Joseph promises Jacob not to bury him in Egypt.

I will be using the SOAP method today.

Be blessed 🙂

S – Scripture that stood out for me

Genesis 47:27 NLT: Meanwhile, the people of Israel settled in the region of Goshen in Egypt. There they acquired property, and they were fruitful, and their population grew rapidly.

O – Observation
Even though there was famine in Egypt, the Isrealites prospered. Egyptians on the other hand sold all they had including themselves in order to have food during the famine but v27 tells us that the Isrealites settled in Goshen and they prospered. They prospered in a foreign land that had famine!. This tells me that Gods blessings are not limited by our location or what’s happening around us. As long as we are where God wants us to be and obey his instructions and trust in Him, we will enjoy his blessings.

A- Application

Let’s have faith and trust God to bless and make a way for us where we are right now. Our God is not limited by physical things 🙂

P – Prayer
Dear Lord we thank you for today. We thank you for your word. Give us grace to trust you more even when all around us tells us otherwise. We love you Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Thank you for joining. Feel free to leave your thoughts on the chapter 🙂

Have a blessed day and Remember God is not limited 🙂

***With God all things are possible***
