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.”

Genesis 42:25 NKJV

Favor

 

Whether Joseph was in
his master’s home

or in prison
there

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.”

Genesis 39:21 NKJV

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.”

Being Merciful

 

I will make
a way of escape

for the righteous
man

and should you struggle
with the change

I’ll mercifully take
your hand.

**********

The One who led Lot out of Sodom is with me.

**********

“When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, ‘Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.’ “

“And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand and the hands of his two daughters, the LORD being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city.”

Genesis 19:15,16 NKJV

Heirs Of Hope

 

We’ve been justified
by His grace

heirs to the hope
of eternal life

though we too
we’re once deceived

now the Spirit’s poured on us
through Jesus Christ.

**********

I am an heir to hope for You are with me.

**********

“For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived . . .”

“But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared “

“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit “

“whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,”

“that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Psalm 44 Selah

 

When the unexplainable
happens

and we don’t
understand

help us remember
how great is Your love

that we’re still in
Your hand.

**********

I can pause when bad things happen and remember how much You love me, for You are with me.

**********

“In God we boast all day long, and praise Your name forever.” Selah

“You have given us up like sheep intended for food and have scattered us among the nations.”

“You sell Your people for next to nothing, and are not enriched by selling them.”

“All this has come upon us; but we have not forgotten You, nor have we dealt falsely with Your covenant.”

“Arise for our help, and redeem us for Your mercies’ sake.”

Your strength, O Lord

in Your salvation
I am blessed

and You have given it

**********

“The king shall have joy in Your strength, O LORD; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!”

“You have given him his heart’s desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips.” Selah
