01-02-2019
Duration: 4 mins 42 secs
In this week’s Parashah Point we see how the plan YHWH had for Joseph’s life and the way it was brought to fruition is not something that Joseph could have ever foreseen. Yet, in the Genesis 45:4-8 we see how Joseph has looked back and seen how everything he had been through was ultimately used to accomplish the Creator’s great design. Be patient and trust in your Maker, He has a plan and perfect timing even if you don’t see it.
