Heavenly Father, thank You so much for how You bless me every single day. I know there are many times I either forget to thank You, or I just don’t realize it was a gift from You and don’t stop to think about it. Every good thing is a gift from You, but I get so caught up in the world at times and how they believe in coincidence, and doing things ourselves, that I forget at times that those things are truly gifts from You. There are so many ways You bless me daily. Just being there anytime I call Your name is a huge blessing. You are the only one that I can ALWAYS call on. Your love is so deep You sent Jesus to suffer and die for me. The wonderful family You have given me, the home I live in, the career I enjoy, this ministry that I am privileged to be part of…so many ways You bless me and I thank You and ask You to help me see all the blessings You give me and not get so caught up in my life, that I don’t even see them anymore.
Thank You for all You do daily, and how You love me and want to bless me.
In Jesus’ name.
Isn’t our God good? Not only were the family members to be set apart from the Egyptians, but they were given the best land available. What a blessing!
God continually blesses us, but we don’t always see it at the time. How has God blessed you that you might not have realized it was God?
Take time today to thank God for the numerous blessings you have and for the blessings to come. God is so good to us.
7 So Joseph went in and told Pharaoh, “My father and my brothers, with their flocks and herds and all that they possess, have come from the land of Canaan. They are now in the land of Goshen.” 2 And from among his brothers he took five men and presented them to Pharaoh. 3 Pharaoh said to his brothers, “What is your occupation?” And they said to Pharaoh, “Your servants are shepherds, as our fathers were.” 4 They said to Pharaoh, “We have come to sojourn in the land, for there is no pasture for your servants' flocks, for the famine is severe in the land of Canaan. And now, please let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen.” 5 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Your father and your brothers have come to you. 6 The land of Egypt is before you. Settle your father and your brothers in the best of the land. Let them settle in the land of Goshen, and if you know any able men among them, put them in charge of my livestock.”
7 Then Joseph brought in Jacob his father and stood him before Pharaoh, and Jacob blessed Pharaoh. 8 And Pharaoh said to Jacob, “How many are the days of the years of your life?” 9 And Jacob said to Pharaoh, “The days of the years of my sojourning are 130 years. Few and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they have not attained to the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their sojourning.” 10 And Jacob blessed Pharaoh and went out from the presence of Pharaoh. 11 Then Joseph settled his father and his brothers and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded. 12 And Joseph provided his father, his brothers, and all his father's household with food, according to the number of their dependents.
