Blessings Folk!!

Today’s reading in the “So That’s Why?” Bible is pp. 65-69. Genesis 39-41.

Many have inquired as to where to procure this particular Bible. Here are a couple of places. I purchased from / Books / So That's Why! Bible With-rom

Don’t worry ‘bout “being behind”...begin and catch up...or jump in. The point is that we all must be in the Word of God - day in and out. We must have His truth imparted unto us.

We will need every letter of His Word in the days coming.

Pray today for those that are going through times of transition.

A quick, non-scientific count in my head reveals that 25% of our corporate gathering on Sunday mornings are without jobs...laid-off, etc.

We trust in the Lord.
We know what His Word says…

Ps 37:25
25 I have been young and now I am old, Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken Or his descendants begging bread.

The Lord will not forsake those who are righteous. He will provide. That does not mean that we sit back and do nothing...even the ant teaches a lesson to the sluggard…

Prov 6:6-11
6 Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise,
7 Which, having no chief, Officer or ruler,
8 Prepares her food in the summer And gathers her provision in the harvest.
9 How long will you lie down, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep?
10 "A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest" —
11 Your poverty will come in like a vagabond And your need like an armed man.

Most of the believers that I know are not sluggards.
They are faithful in the Lord...yet, they are under-employed, un-employed, etc. etc.

What to do?

Pray. Trust the Lord. Seek His Kingdom, knowing that He is faithful and will add what we need.
Seize the moment. Perhaps more time is available for prayer, meditation upon the Word, intimate time with the Lord, helping others through the Spirit, etc.
Don’t sit around and faithful unto the Lord and His Kingdom.

Lastly, we as the Body of Christ are to help one another...particularly the poor among us, those going through times of distress.

Do as the Lord speaks unto you.
Support one another.
Hire one another.
Pray for one another.
Intercede for one another.

One might provide a word of encouragement.
One might provide a meal.
One might provide money.
One might provide a tank of gas.
One might provide childcare.

What would the Lord have you to do?
