Numbers 16:41-17:13; Proverbs 14:1-35; 2 Peter 1:1-21

My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9

Consider Joseph and the difficulties he endured. Yet in all of them God’s grace was sufficient. His brethren sold him as a slave into Egypt (Gen. 37:28). He was falsely imprisoned because of the wiles of a woman (39:19-20). But all the while God was preparing Joseph to save the nation of Egypt and also his own family (Gen. 45:8). God was always present with Joseph in those harsh times— just as He is with us. His grace is sufficient for you. —K. C. Ung

When the road we tread is rough, let us bear in mind,
In our Saviour strength enough, we may always find;
Though the fighting may be tough, let our motto be:
Go on, go on to victory! —Richard Slater
