Mountain Of Fire Daily Devotional For June 12, 2022 : Topic – Joseph And His Brothers (I)
TOPIC: Joseph And His Brothers (I)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 18:19-33, 2 Samuel 19, Acts 7:44-60, Acts 8:1-3, Psalm 73:1-14
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 50:17-21 (KJV)
17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.
18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants.
19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?
20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.
MEMORY VERSE: “Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.” – Luke 17:3-4
Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP:
Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES, AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US.
Psychologist define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to withdraw feeling of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness. Forgiveness is a very key quality of being a Christian. In the Bible, the word forgiveness is mentioned about 129 times. It is also included in the Lord’s Prayer.
The story of Joseph is a perfect example of forgiveness. It must have been very hard for him to forgive his brothers, but because Joseph had the love of God in his heart, God made it easy for him to do so. Joseph’s forgiveness was not only for his benefit, but for the benefit of the future children of the Israelites. If Joseph had not forgiven his brothers, maybe the promise that God gave Abraham about his seed becoming as many as the sand on the seashore might not have come to pass. Forgiveness on its own is not easy, especially when it is people you love the most and hold in high esteem that have offended you. But with God, all things are possible.
We should learn forgiveness because we gain a lot when we forgive. When we forgive, our God in heaven forgives all our sins and our prayers are answered. God’s mercies encompass us round about and our lives become a testimony to those around us. Remember that unforgiveness is a sin, and it can take you to hell fire.
Beloved, forgiving others is a great way to show that you are an obedient Christian. It is also a good way to demonstrate that the love of God is at work in your life. When you don’t forgive, you imprison the person who has offended you and you imprison yourself as well. When you don’t forgive, you allow bitterness and resentment to occupy your heart. As someone put it, resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies. Be wise; forgive others as Joseph did.
