Time to take one last look at Genesis, where we've been, and what it all means. From the dawn of creation, our journey has brought us to the banks of the Nile; Jacob's children and their families are in a foreign land, but God is enacting His plan to rescue the world.
Aren't you glad God is patient? We are fickle, and often fail, but He is faithful! Jacob fought with God for much of his life, but God never gave up on him, and in his last days, God won his heart. He showed he had learned to trust God - a life lesson we all need to learn.
God keeps His word! He told Abraham his descendants would go to a foreign land, and now they are traveling to Egypt. On the way, He reminds Jacob that He will make them a great nation, but little could Jacob have known then how! God's providential power is on display.
