God has surely
visited me

to bring me through
all this

carrying me
when I am weak

to the place that He


The One who promised to bring the Hebrews out of Egypt is with me.


“And Joseph said to his brethren, ‘I am dying but God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land to the land of which He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.’ “

“Then Joseph took an oath from the children of Israel, saying, ‘God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here.’ “

Thus He Did For Them


Joseph recognized
his brothers

who had done
him wrong

yet returned their money
in sacks of grain

and with provisions
sent them along.


I can be merciful to those who’ve hurt me, for You are with me.


“Then Joseph gave a command to fill their sacks with grain, to restore every man’s money to his sack, and to give them provisions for the journey. Thus he did for them.”

Store up


As Joseph collected
one fifth of the produce

during the plentiful

so you should store up
My word within you

to shield against all
your fears.


The One who provides during famines is with me.


“Let the Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, to collect one fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven plentiful years.”

“And let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the authority of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.”

“Then that food will be as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which shall be in the land of Egypt, that the land may not perish during the famine.”

Whether Joseph was in
his master’s home

or in prison

I made all he did
to prosper

he never left
My care.


I can find favor in difficult situations for You are with me.


“But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.”

Dream Giver


I will give you
dreams and visions

of what is yet
to be

so you can now
prepare yourself

and continually look
to Me.


The One who gave Joseph his dreams is with me.


“Now Joseph had a dream and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more.”

“Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, ‘Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.”

Receive From My Hand


Please receive
these gifts from me

for Him in you
I see

and I’m blessed
whenever I give

as God is gracious
to me.


I see You in the faces of others, for You are with me.


“And Jacob said, ‘No, please, if I have now found favor in your sight, then receive my present from my hand, inasmuch as I have seen your face as though I had seen the face of God, and you were pleased with me.’ “

“Please take my blessing that is brought to you, because God has dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough.”

Mercies And Truths


I’m humbled by
Your mercy

and all the truth
You’ve shown

for I came to You
so broken

and You’ve made me
Your own.


I have known mercy and truth for You are with me.


“I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies and of all the truth which You have shown Your servant; for I crossed over this Jordan with my staff, and now I have become two companies.”
