The loss of Joseph compromises Jacob’s faith, he withdraws and insulates himself so that he can not be hurt again. Jacob doesn’t realize that he doesn’t trust what God is doing in his life.
Jacob doesn’t realize that he is no longer operating on faith, he doesn’t realize that he isn’t trusting in the Lord.
Jacob’s thoughts and feelings have become his reality. He’s not willing to take a risk.
Life is full of twist and turns. In the process, our faith is often tested. Instead of stepping out on faith, we start to believe that the situation is too risky.
I encourage you today, to lean not to your own understanding. Trust God. Take a leap of faith and be rewarded for the risk. The risk that God is greater than ENTEX of your circumstances.
It may feel like everything is against you but know this, God is for us.
God bless you.
