No Fear, He’s Waiting to Nourish You

“Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.” Genesis 50:21 In my last post on fear, Joseph had told his brothers and father not to fear saying, “for am I in the place of God?” (Verse19). Now he again tells them not to fear, he will nourish them and their children. He then went on to comfort them and speak kindly to them. Reading this made my heart smile. He didn’t puff himself up for coming to their rescue. He didn’t say, “Remember that dream I had when the day would come that you would all serve me, today is that day.” No. The Scripture says he, “comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.” I found that humbling. In a world where people are striving for recognition and to be better than another, we find the story of Joseph who had so many reasons to be angry and hurt. So many reasons to say the Lord lifted me above you because of what you did, yet he was kind and merciful. Lord help me to be like Joseph. We also continue to see there is no fear in Jesus. “Now therefore fear not…” God brought Joseph’s family out of a famine and long before it ever took place he had arranged to meet their every need knowing the horrible things (and using the those very things) his brothers had done to do it. Look at God. It doesn’t matter what you have done, he knew you were going to do it before you acted on it. He’s willing to forgive you. Just ask, He will nourish, comfort, and lift you up. He’s waiting. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
