I have some ‘Our Daily Bread’ books from last year, and how been browsing them again. I looked at today’s date reading, but found one for July 22nd that was more meaningful during this pandemic.
Faithful in Captivity.
The reading is from Genesis 39 – While Joseph was there in the prison, the Lord was with him.
Of course we are not in prison, but Covid-19 has imprisoned us in many ways. You can read this scripture if you wish.. At the end of each page it suggests what you can do.
“God, thank you for being with me always, even when life’s circumstances cause me to be uncomfortable. Help me to be faithful to You.”
I felt very emotional reading this, and know that the time will come when we can look back at it. Only God knows when it will be. Until then, he will keep us strong.
