“And he said, Indeed I have heard that there is grain in Egypt; go down to that place and buy for us there, that we may live and not die.” Genesis 42:2
Life will throw us all kinds of obstacles, financial shortages, job problems, car problems and health issues to name a few. The LORD allows such things to happen so we can exercise our faith in Him!
“So Joseph’s ten brothers went down to buy grain in Egypt.” Genesis 42:3
Here Jacob see’s the famine in his land, hears there is grain in Egypt and sends his boys to fetch some! Jacob showed faith he believed and acted on it! We often say we believe then sit and do nothing!
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17

“You see that faith was active along with works, and faith was completed by his works.” James 2:22
Today let us get into the word of God, seek instruction through His word and then step out and do it! Have a blessed day exercising our faith by doing what the word says!
