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.

Comments and Q.O.T.D: 1) I do agree with Jesus- we r not unclean by not washing our hands- it is the thoughts, manners, words, attitude we give- the words that no amount of toothpaste can squeeze back in to the bottle. 2) I am more often lately- but for some reason- when I repeat what someone says I don't mind saying it, I need to work on that. 3) I get unpleasant when I'm tired, but I need to be more cognizant of the environment my students are in, and minister to them when words are spoken not take offense 4) I for one, dont cuss and if one slips out unintentional it's not proper talk.
