"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Genesis 45:16-46:7
And God spoke to Israel in visions of the night and said, “Jacob, Jacob.” And he said, “Here I am.” Then he said, “I am God, the God of your father. Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for there I will make you into a great nation. I myself will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also bring you up again, and Joseph’s hand shall close your eyes.”

There is no way that Jacob could know what God meant, or what Israel would do during their time in Egypt. God's promise to be with them is profound given the hindsight that we have of the enslavement that would fall upon the people of Israel. As Jacob comes up to the feast God promises deliverance. Sounds wild. What you can be sure of is that there are times of feast and times of famine in life. We know this and yet God's promise is true. Join us as we get a birds eye view of the kind of God who delivers.
