The Seventh Birthday: Part 3
Nov 29, 2020 • Pastor Daniel Carr
Genesis 29:31-30:24 Jacob marries Rachel and loves her. Yet, she is barren, but God opens her womb as He has in the past. The eleventh son of Jacob is Joseph. He is wronged and betrayed on numerous occasions. Yet, he remains faithful to the LORD in all of his actions and the LORD continues to be with Joseph. Ultimately, the LORD elevates Joseph to the second highest position in the world where he is able to ensure the prosperity of God’s growing nation in Egypt. With all this power, instead of exacting revenge and justice, Joseph sees God’s sovereign hand at work and forgives.
