Bad Blood

Bad Blood - the incredible story of Joseph
Joe’s childhood was full of jealousy, strife, crime and sin:
What a family!

Psychologists tell us that two things determine how we’ll turn out—heredity and environment. If that were true, Joe wouldn’t have had a chance.

But Joe, or Joseph as he’s called in the Bible, chose not to let his heredity and environment determine the outcome of his life.

And we can do the same…when we choose to trust God instead of our circumstances! Whatever is troubling you today, give it to the Lord. There is no obstacle in your life too great for God to overcome!

“ in all things God works for the good of those who love him..” Romans 8:28 (NIV)

I encourage you to read Joseph’s interesting story in Genesis 37-50, and why not copy down all of the obstacles he overcame.

  3. This story is incorrect. You need to reread Genesis in an original Holy Bible called the King James Version.

    1. Dear Amy,
      It's the same in whatever version you read. If you click the links in the devotion, you will find them linked to multiple versions of Scripture including the KJV. There is perhaps another Scripture you might want to look up in the KJV - Proverbs 18:13.

  4. A product or your environment... that's what people called us in the poverty stricken, gang infested, drug ridden area where I grew up. But many of us defide the odds and got out of that neighborhood and took as many as we could with us. That's a picture of our walk with God in this world. As with our spiritual life, we either look around and become what we see... or we look around and say I don't like what I see, and get out. - Thank you for the great devotional today.
