Today's Good News


6/27 Acts 7:11-19
“But a famine came upon Egypt and Canaan. There was great misery for our ancestors, as they ran out of food. 12 Jacob heard that there was still grain in Egypt, so he sent his sons to buy some. 13 The second time they went, Joseph revealed his identity to his brothers, and they were introduced to Pharaoh. 14 Then Joseph sent for his father, Jacob, and all his relatives to come to Egypt, seventy-five persons in all. 15 So Jacob went to Egypt. He died there, as did all his sons. 16 All of them were taken to Shechem and buried in the tomb Abraham had bought from the sons of Hamor in Shechem. 17 “As the time drew near when God would fulfill his promise to Abraham, the number of our people in Egypt greatly increased. 18 But then a new king came to the throne of Egypt who knew nothing about Joseph. 19 This king plotted against our people and forced parents to abandon their newborn babies so they would die.
Victory is accomplished in the face of the most cruel attacks from our enemy, the evil one, Satan, who cannot change the fact that we belong to the Lord. His program is to strike out as viciously as possible to deter us from the Lord’s way and work. Serve the Lord. Let the Lord fight the battle with the evil one for you. Stand in the day of testing and the Lord will see you through.
