• What's Holding You Back? Your SELF

    Genesis 41:44, “No one will lift a hand or a foot in the entire land of Egypt without your approval.”

     

    Genesis 44:51  Joseph named him Manasseh because his name means “God has made me forget my troubles and my father’s household.”  

     

    42:6…“When Joseph’s brothers arrived, they bowed down to him with their faces to the ground.”

     

    Surely we’re being punished because of our brother. We saw how distressed he was when he pleaded with us for his life, but we would not listen; that’s why this distress has come on us. Now we must give an accounting for his blood.”

     

    Chapter 45:1, “Then Joseph could no longer control himself before all his attendants, and he cried out, ‘Have everyone leave my presence!’ So there was no one with Joseph when he made himself known to his brothers.

     

    And he wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard him, and Pharaoh’s household heard about it.

     

    Joseph said to his brothers, ‘I am Joseph! Is my father still living?’ But his brothers were not able to answer him, because they were terrified at his presence.

     

    Then Joseph said to his brothers, ‘Come close to me.’ When they had done so, he said, ‘I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt!’”

     

    “do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you.

     

    For two years now there has been famine in the land, and for the next five years there will be no plowing and reaping.

     

    But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So then, it was not you who sent me here; it was God who sent me here.”

     

    Genesis 45:4 ‘I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold

     

    Genesis 50:20, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”

     

    Don’t be afraid. Am I God that I could punish you?”
