Thus Israel settled in the land of Egypt, in the land of Goshen.
And they gained possessions in it, and were fruitful and multiplied greatly.
Genesis 47:27
The majority of the people in Egypt suffered loss through the years of famine. They spent their money, sold their herds, their property, and then themselves in order to stay alive. But God’s people. God’s chosen ones had a very different experience in Egypt. They gained possessions. They were fruitful and multiplied greatly.
No matter what the world suffers, the people of God, the faithful, will be provided for. We should not live in fear. He is faithful to the faithful.
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8 ESV
Where is your trust? in the things of the world? or the Lord?
What do you fear? This question can reveal where you have placed your trust.
Father God, the world is full of trouble. I do not want to live a life of fear.
Increase my trust in You. While those trusting the world lose more and more,
I choose to trust in You. Guide me in times of trouble.
Bear fruit for Your Kingdom through me.
