Devotion: Aaron’s Death on Mount Hor

[I]n context this expression served as an encouraging reminder of God’s faithfulness, in that an individual’s life and death are seen as part of a larger story ultimately orchestrated by the Lord.

Devotion: Covenant Affirmed at Mount Sinai

Eating and drinking together can be an act of both hospitality and worship. After all, according to 1 Corinthians 10:31, “Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

Devotion: Promise Kept at Mount Sinai

Through it all, God had remained faithful. He had promised Moses, “When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.”

Devotional: The Final Reconciliation

Rejoice in the assurance that God is able to redeem even the bleakest of circumstances. This truth is most clearly seen in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

Devotion: The Days to Come (Part 2)

God was with Joseph. He has achieved his position and saved his family because of the Lord’s help. What is true for Joseph will also be true of all who come after him.

Devotion: The Days to Come (Part 1)

Knowing that God has kept His promise to Jacob can give us confidence that He will keep His promises regarding His Second Coming.

Devotion: An Unusual Blessing

God’s blessing does not take worldly standards into account. His blessing is purely an act of His grace and cannot be presumed upon because of birth or position.

Devotion: In Egypt, but Not of It

The Hebrew phrase here literally reads “officers of cattle,” which was a well-known Egyptian office. It would have allowed Joseph’s family to have legal protection not normally given to immigrants.

Devotion: Joseph and His Family

Our study has focused on Joseph, but our passage today reminds us that the Joseph story is about more than simply the experience of one individual. This is the story of a family, a community in relationship with God.

Devotion: A Promise-Keeping God

The same God who made promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is faithful to fulfill them. We can have confidence that God will keep His promises.
