OCTOBER 5, 2013 – GOD CHANGES THINGS – Do you realize that if something is set in stone, God can change even that? He is the final authority!  There was an order to things, back in the days of Jacob and Joseph, concerning the older brother being placed over the younger brother. Genesis 48 is such an interesting event – Joseph takes his two sons to receive ‘The Blessing’ from his dad Jacob (Israel). Jacob gives the main blessing to the younger son, instead of the older one. Look at what Joseph says: Genesis 48:18 And Joseph said to his father, “Not so, my father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head.” Look what happens next: V. 19 But his father refused and said, “I know, my son, I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he…” I get a kick out of this event concerning Joseph. Why? Because when he was younger he had a vision of his older brothers bowing down to him, he told his brothers about it, they threw him in a pit and sold him into slavery! Years later his brothers bowed down to him! Joseph, of all people, knows that God changes things! Things in life may seem to be set in stone, but know that God changes things. Our Father says – I know, my son, I know (V.19) God has the final authority!
