Thoughts Of Devotion:
Here we see a very intimate moment in the life of Jacob, he declares God’s blessing on his son Joseph. Before his last breath, Jacob assured a word of blessing and prosperity to his life! As we know, Joseph was the one who suffered most, the process of blessing was not easy. We see how he was sold as a slave, years in prison, a life of suffering and pain. Even in Genesis 41:52 we read that Jacob named his second son Ephraim, he said, “For God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.”
We see that the blessing that was given by Jacob to his son Joseph was the longest and fullest of his brothers. At the end of the day God blessed Joseph everywhere, the heavens and the deep oceans, and even to his offspring! We must thank God for the process we go through before receiving our blessings. This is what God does with us, after our struggles and difficulties, we see great blessings. Deuteronomy 7:13 says, “And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you.”
This morning believe that God can bless you beyond what you could imagen. Maybe all of your life has been full of struggles and difficulties, but God wants to bless your future! We don’t have to end our lives in defeat and failure, Just yield your life and will to the Lord! God is able to meet each of your needs as his Word promises us in Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” If you have God, you have it all! At the end of the process He will supply everything you need and will satisfy you with HIs overflowing blessings in 2016.
