We are reading the one-year Chronological Bible and we just finished the part when all of Joseph’s family (his father and brothers and all their families) moved to Goshen– it said that their number, including Joseph and his family, totaled 70 (Genesis 46).
I am now sitting in the living room watching my two baby granddaughters interacting with one another, and I look up and see my family’s picture over the fireplace. God has blessed me. It started with just my husband and me, and now we number 12 in our family (it’s actually 11, but my son and future daughter-in-law will be getting married in June).
These passages in Deuteronomy say, “If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully keep all his commands… You will experience all these blessings… Your children and your crops will be blessed… Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed” (Deu 28:1-2, 4, 6, NLT).
I don’t deserve any of His blessings, but by His grace He has blessed me. God is so amazing and awesome! He truly is great and powerful!
