Today’s Bible reading from the Five-Day Bible Reading Plan: Genesis 49-50; Galatians 4

A truth that permeates all of Scripture is this: God works in His people to show the truth from Genesis 50:20: “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good.” We see it elsewhere, say, in Romans 8:28: “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

In other words, God is working. The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir released a song a number of years ago called, “God is working.”

God is working, He’s still working,
God is working even now.
Though we often don’t know just how.
God’s still working, He’s still working
God’s still working even now.

There are wide swaths of Joseph’s life that would indicate at first sight that God was absent, yet He was working in Joseph to prepare him for the tasks at hand to help not just God’s people but the entire civilized world. How grateful we are to know that the Creator is still working in and through us!

Here’s the performance of the song mentioned above:
