Genesis 50:20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. We don't always see with correct vision. Sometimes we see what is not really there (fear) and other times we see only what we want to see (selfishness). The statement, "hindsight is 20/20 is a good one, but... there is greater vision than just 20/20. In Genesis 50:20, Joseph reveals to his brothers that even when they tried to harm him, God was at work! Joseph was looking at life through the lens' of Grace. He now recognized that God's plan will always prevail even if it doesn't appear that way. We all need this perspective. Put on the glasses of Grace and see what God is doing.

Everyone, everywhere... is a worshipper. We worship all kinds of things. Foolishly, many worship themselves, fame, money, achievement, nature, false gods... the list is extensive. Worshippers who are wise recognize the one true God and worship God for who he is and what he has done. The doorway into the sanctuary is Jesus Christ who made it possible to personally come into to the presence of God the father. Jesus, we remember what you have done and we recognize your grace in our lives.

We all face problems and pressures in our lives. This section of Genesis has a great message for us as individuals and families to encourage us, strengthen us and give us hope in the Lord. In this passage, we see how God guides us in crisis, how God transformed Judah and He can Transform us, and that Jesus put His life on the line for us. A very timely message for each of us today.
