Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
Genesis 47:27 - 48:22)
“God’s Choice Is The Best Choice”
Text: Genesis 48:14
“Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh’s head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn.”
This Truth that “God’s Choice is The Best Choice,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
In preparation for his death, Israel is preparing to transfer God’s Covenant of Blessing to Joseph, as his fathers Abraham and Isaac did to him.
Israel’s Blessing was prayed upon Joseph’s two sons Manasseh and Ephraim, whom Israel adopted as his own (v.5).
Since Israel was blind he “guided his hands knowingly,” putting his right hand on the head of Ephraim, the younger son, and his left hand on Manasseh the firstborn son.
Custom’s Choice was the firstborn son; but God’s Choice is not always the same as Custom’s Choice -
But God’s Choice is Always The Best Choice.
Israel Knew God’s Choice in this matter by living in right relationship with God, and by allowing the Spirit of God in him “to guide his hands knowingly.”
In other words, Holy Spirit will always let you and I Know God’s Choice in a matter - when we are in right relationship with Him. His Peace in our heart will be the Umpire that tells us what God’s Choice is.
“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.” (Col.3:15).
God’s Choice will not always be easy, popular, or customary; but it will Always be the Best Choice. Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
