God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand

"For the Lord thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the Lord thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing." (Deuteronomy 2:7)

As I ponder these words of the Lord to Moses, I can't help but think they also apply to me.  As I look back at the journey through my life's wilderness, I can see how the Lord has been fully aware of my walk and blessed me that I have lacked nothing.

Stand Still (Come, Follow Me)

Fear ye not, stand still,
and see the salvation of the Lord,
which he will shew to you to day

Light in Their Dwellings (Come, Follow Me)

From this week's Come, Follow Me reading, we learn that even when the world around us is filled with darkness, our homes can be filled with light.  I am grateful for Jesus Christ who is that Light.

There was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days....but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
Exodus 10:22-23

Sold a Slave (Come, Follow Me)

When I ponder the amazing story of Joseph who was sold a slave into Egypt and think about the terrible injustices that many suffer in life, I look to Joseph's example for purpose in suffering, the grace of forgiveness, and an eternal perspective that shows the good we can do in any circumstances.

"I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.  And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.  So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God."
Genesis 45:4,7-8
