Romans 8: 26-30
This Genesis 37 introduction to the story of Joseph tells us of a dreamer, those who seek to kill off our dreams, and a God who keeps the dream alive, albeit at times only by a thread.
The context of this narrative is impending disaster – a totally debilitating famine in the land of Canaan. So often in human history potential disaster looms on our horizon! In these current days it is climate change, A.I., and the war in Ukraine – a trifecta of looming doom! So this Genesis story, this ancient narrative, is relevant to us today; what does God speak into these times of existential anxiety?

God calls us to grow in faith and love.
Growing often brings storms: expected and unexpected.
We can be fearful that we can’t cope.
We may find it difficult to hear God’s gentle voice.
We call out in our distress: ‘Lord save me!’
But God is always with us; let us worship the Lord!
