As followers of Christ we can look back over the years and see how God has provided for us where’s He’s guided us.  He has a wonderful way of doing that.  And today we’ll see that play out for Jacob and his family.  God has provided for them the best land in Egypt!   Let’s see how this relates to our lives here on Sound Doctrine.

You’ve probably prayed this more times than you can count, “God lead and guide me!”  He loves to answer that prayer.  But here’s something else to keep in mind.  He also provides for us, where He guides us.  And we certainly see that in the story of Joseph.  Today on Sound Doctrine you’ll hear how God guided and provided for Jacob and his sons as they head into the land of Goshen.

Some of you are old enough to remember singing, “This world is not my home I’m just passing through.  My treasure is laid up somewhere beyond the blue!”  It really is true.  As Christians we’re sojourners.  We’re not home yet.  And it’s important for us to keep that fresh in our minds, especially as time is going by so fast.  We’ll have that opportunity today on Sound Doctrine, as we get into Genesis chapter 47.
