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.

GOD'S PRAYER, Pray the Our Father before asking for requirements and needs' here on earth. it's just to say during an earthquake, calm down on earth in the name of OUR LORD Jesus'. GOD'S PRAYER, Pray the Our Father before asking for needs and requirements here on earth. ito lang ang sasabihin kapag may lindol,huminahon ka lupa in the name of OUR LORD JESUS'.
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance." Psalm 33:12 "Mapalad ang bansa na ang Dios ay sa PANGINOON, ang mga tao siya ay pinili para sa kanyang mana." Awit 33:12

In today's ready you asked did we think that Joseph was being too hard. In my opinion when I read it I thought wow that seems kind of harsh he took everything from them and reduced everyone to slaves. However, the thing we must always remember is that our opinions on what we think really don't matter. God is so much bigger than us and his visions for us for the people are so much bigger than anything we could ever fanthom. So Joseph was obviously very receptive to doing what God wanted, it's very evident that Joseph was in God's will by reading the passages. SO if Joseph was doing that then obviously it fit into God's plan. So who are we to judge whether it's harsh. God had a plan for the people of Egypt and if it means enslaving them so that they'll turn to God then maybe that was the purpose of it. So overall ultimately I don't think it was too harsh because it was obviously in God's will and God's will is always right

Do I agree with Jesus Words of: "Listen,” he said, “and try to understand. It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth."" I think that is very true. We live in a world where there is sin all around. Jesus said "It sin abounds, how much more does grace abound?" Romans 5:20. His grace is sufficient for whatever situation, whether it be the food we eat, to whatever we do, think, or say. However, I love for Him should cause us to start to crave the things that are lovely pure, and right. (Phil 4:8) so I don't think it is necessarily a problem with germs on the hands so much as a stained or tainted heart or mind.
