Genesis 50:20

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the gospel with us wherever we go.

In this week’s verse, Jacob extends kindness and forgiveness to his brothers, demonstrating his trust in God’s ultimate goodness and sovereignty.

You planned evil against me; God planned it for good to bring about the present result—
the survival of many people.
—Genesis 50:20

    Just wrapped up my study of Genesis today and come on, let’s go God!!! So powerful, so much more than just creation but the deliverance from evil and the salvation of His people. That even through terrible circumstances, He makes all things work together for His good. Amen!

    What Gid taught me over this study:
    God created everything. He made it all good!! Even before the fall and of course after, we start to see God’s character. We start to see the unfailing love of God!! We start to see redemption, forgiveness, mercy, and grace!! We start to see how God’s good and perfect plan always transcends!! We start to see the promises that a HOPE IS COMING! We start to see the promises that a SAVIOR IS COMING – JESUS IS COMING!!!

    I love this verse! This verse fills me with such hope and peace, knowing that God is in control, even in the worse of times. I hope you all are having a blessed Sunday!

    It’s Joseph, not Jacob :)

    Listening to this week’s podcast really struck me connected to this verse!

    Which side of the semicolon will I live on? “You meant evil against me” The side that looks at what people have done to me? Hurt, resentment, anger? Or the other side that focuses on God and how He uses ALL things for good “God turned it into good” He can turn a situation that seems unfair and broken to us, and in the exact same moment – semicolon – turn it for good for me and those around me. I may not see it at the time, but I can trust and KNOW that God is working on my behalf in EVERY instance.

    Like I said yesterday I really enjoyed this study. I couldn’t wait as I woke up each morning to dig into The Word with all of you. I learned so much from the devotions as well as all of you here. Blessings to all of you.

    After Jesus, Joseph has been my favorite person in the Bible since I was tiny…and I still have so much to learn about him and God and how what they accomplished together should affect my life!!
    Love you SRT sisters.
    (Typo both Friday and today… ?should be “Joseph’s Kindness”)

    Hi all! I really enjoyed this study! I’m asking a bit of a favor or help. In the thematic theme section could you share an example of how you used that section? Or could you point me in the direction of a site or blog of someone who might post more about these responses and how they used them in their study. Thanks very much have a joy filled SON day!♥️

      I didn’t know what I would write there right away. But as I was writing what I learned I realized a few things.
      If it is Gods will it will happen in His timing.
      And God was there the whole time. In everything. He was right there.
      I’m sure there is more than that. And throughout the day I will pray and think on it. Maybe someone else will chime in too.

    Amen to Churchmouse and Tina✝

  12. Blessed Beth says:

    Amen to both of you Curchmouse and Tina ✝

    And, on the app, if I try to read additional replies to your comments I am bounced off the app. It closes out.

  14. Church Mouse says:

    I usually post my comments on the SRT website from my android phone. I thoughy it posted both there and here but it doesn’t always. I’m not missing in action, friends. I post daily. It’s just not visible on the app sometimes.

  15. Churchmouse says:

    Counting my blessings this early Sunday morning…surely this study of Genesis with all of you from SRT is a huge one. I eagerly read God’s Word to be reminded of verses such as today’s. The devil tries so hard to discourage, distract, demean and destroy us. His methods are varied but our God is able to bring good out of evil every single time. God gives us the Truth of His Word to combat every blow, to rise above every assault. And praise God! He gives us fellow believers to come alongside to link arms with us when we are battle weary. Thank you, fellow soldiers, for gathering here and doing just that. In Him, we are victorious.
