We first learn of Joseph, son of Rachel, at his birth in Genesis 30:24, and we follow his life through to his death, at the age of 110, in Genesis 50:26.  It’s a life story that God’s Word provides to us in much detail.  Today’s “Day by Day With The Persecuted Church” devotional was written by Enrique Palacio from Cuba.

“It seems that God wants us to know all the details of the faith that perseveres.  Joseph resisted hatred, injustice, temptations and maybe the most difficult of all: success, prosperity and power.”

“From his life we learn: 

  • faith is not moved by adversity 
  • faith that persists is not shaken by false accusations
  • it is not blurred by promises that never seem to come true
  • it is not limited to the present, but projects to the future.”

“The faith that persists: 

  • sees the invisible
  • believes the impossible
  • receives the incredible.”
