Monday - catch up with Genesis

31.4-8 - Similar to Rom 8.31 - If God is for us, who can be against us...
end of 32: We often pray to see God and to see His glory. But we don't often want the pain and humiliation that comes along with it. Jacob (Israel) never walked again. Isaiah had burnt lips. Moses had a shiny face. Peter fell on his face. John fell face down in worship because he wasn't worthy. We always ask for the glory but very seldom ever remembering that being in God's presence is painful because of the chasm between our sin and His holiness. Thank goodness for amazing grace!
39.21 - Presence, love, and favor...
39.23 - success
41.38 - To be known as a person on whom the Spirit of God rests. This is what Joseph was known for - among a people that didn't know God. Oh grant us that favor with outsiders.
