Thank you Jim. I appreciate your thoughts. It was a blessing in my heart already in preparing the devotion.
In this particular passage, as Joseph thought about the toils and afflictions that he went through, he naturally believed that it was God who brought about the fruit in his life. Joseph, as was Christ, among the other fruits of the Spirit previous mentioned, had inward peace, longsuffering, and temperance in their lives.
Now, God, through prosperity, and then through adversity,
An excellent devotion Bro. Alan. All that you brought out regarding fruit in the life of Joseph rings true. I have heard and taught on the life of Joseph and especially on Joseph as a type of Christ, but had never considered the fruits he bore as such.
Thank you for a wonderful blessing in posting this devotion.
It is my hope that the Lord is using the series devotions on the life of Joseph in Egypt to encourage and strengthen your walk with the Lord.
