Genesis 46:1-47:31

What I have learned in today’s reading is this, God can come along, change my name after I wrestle with Him, and prevail; however, afterwards, I may act like a “Jacob” but He, God, will still call me Israel. God is a God of His Word even though I may not be a woman of my word.

SO ISRAEL made his journey with all that he had and came to Beersheba [a place hallowed by sacred memories] and offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. [Gen. 21:33; 26:23-25.] And God spoke to Israel in visions of the night, and said, Jacob! Jacob! And he said, Here am I. And He said, I am God, the God of your father; do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will there make of you a great nation.
(Genesis 46:1-3 AMP)

I can be given a promise and after having waited and waited for it to be fulfilled, afraid that I will die before I see it happen, God will always come back to confirm His Word while He comforts me with these words, “Do not be afraid” (46:3). God will fulfill His promises in the environment He has chosen and in the “nation” He decides.

Genesis 46:21

21 The sons of Benjamin:
Bela, Beker, Ashbel, Gera, Naaman, Ehi, Rosh, Muppim, Huppim and Ard.

Joseph was 30 when he became Pharaoh's official. Seven years of good harvest plus two years of famine happened before Joseph brought Israel to Egypt. Benjamin was the smallest son of Israel. According to the above bible verse, Benjamin should have married early and had sons.

Is any one else having problem with the link to the OneYearAudioBible.org

What happened to the Daily Audio bible, I got some man from a radio in canada?

yes there is a problem with the audio I am going to miss the old way of hearing the words read fro m the bible.

I like the story about joseph because its my favorate,its all about the family so when i read the story i cried. Then the song i like it by Mathew West., Hello Mathew? i like your song.

What I thought was neat is when first reading Gen 46 about Jacob going into Egypt, he gets a vision from God at night, and tells him in his stumbling faith when all hope was dim for for a while and now he is needing reassurance that his son is alive, He gets that reassurance of God's love and protection, in accordance with the day before readings in Matthew 14:13-36, Jesus walking on the water in the 4th watch hour. between 3 and 6 am..a vision in the night to the fearful and stumbling faith of His disciples to build their faith also..I love to see all the coorelations and come togethers, so to speak in the people..how they parrellel with one another and make a connection between old and new testament in Bible. :-D

I know I have been there at a time of needing God's reassurance and upon praying and "waiting" for things to come to pass in Gods timing and not mine..things have come about in my life that were God's will for me at that time. When I rush it or try to put myself in a place that God has moved me away from..then things don't come about as pleasant and usually lead to heartache and disappointment. We just have to be willing and obedient and have discernment when it comes to God's plan for our life.

I know that God said that He will bless the ones that bless you and curse the ones that curse you (spoken to Abraham in Gen 12:1) maybe Jacob was just blessing them because he knew he was getting a supernatural blessing that doesn't come from man's hand but the Man of God, and that Jacob was blessing Pharoah on God's behalf and blessing him as a humble man would who feels undeserving but priviledged to be given a right of passage to their land.

What I thought was cool was, although I am behind in my reading this week and playing catchup!! lol..I am reading a daily guideposts 2012 devotion that I am up and current with on it..and my Jan 28 devotion is based on Psalm 19:12: Who can discern my errors? It talks about doing things in the way of man,we all stumble, we all fall at times..but the Lord picks us up and when we do it humbly and submit to God in all we do, even when we make mistakes, we learn from those mistakes and it is through those mistakes that we learn something..and others learn and are inspired too..that we are human and so are they..and if we can do it and make a "boo boo" sometimes while yet doing the Fathers work then they are inspired to do it too..There is no one perfect..no not one but Jesus!!Romans 3:10
