VERSE:
Genesis 48:11–Israel said to Joseph, “I never expected to see your face and behold God has let me see your children as well.”

TRUTH:
Our expectations are limited by what we see and know. God can do so far above what we expect or anticipate. Do we trust Him to bring about what is best for us?

RESPONSE:
Lord, Your plans are better than my plans. Help me to trust in You.

  1. Do we also trust that God can see beyond our present circumstances. Even our present nature to something greater and yet to be realized by us. We too often demand things from God because of what we see and what He sees.We must learn to walk by faith and not by sight. Knowing that the Lord’s intentions for us are good and NOT evil.

    Very true, that is the essence of faith. Well put.
