I can't, but God can!

We have been having a look at the story of Joseph as part of a preaching series, and it has been very challenging, as well as encouraging. As part of his message on Sunday, Collin Moore drew our attention to Genesis 41:16, where Joseph says this to Pharaoh:

"I cannot do it, but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires."

This one line may not make much sense out of it's context, but if we read around it we will note the humility of Joseph. Although he had the opportunity to brag about his abilities and special gifts, he chose to remain humble and deflected the glory to God. Joseph comprehended a very real truth - God is able to do all things through us.

As you face the issues and obstacles in your life remember that we may not be able to work it all out, BUT GOD can!

Deuteronomy 6:13 Deeply respect God, your God. Serve and worship him exclusively. Back up your promises with his name only.

2 Chronicles 25:9“The Lord is able to give you much more than this!”

Living in Grace
