Want to read the Bible with me today? http://www.timhowey.com/2016/01/my-bible-reading-2016.html
First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Genesis 47.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — Pharaoh meets Jacob’s family and, during the famine, Joseph acquires the money, livestock and land of Egypt for the state.
- Doctrinal — God can use difficult events in our past to prepare a way to be protected and flourish in the future, as verse 27 illustrates.
- Inspirational — Like verse 25, may I live knowing God has blessed me to help others; to help with their needs and better their lives.
