Israel: a miracle to stay! - Miracles

Miracles

Forgiveness precedes miracles! Joseph forgave his brothers who sold him out as a slave, Genesis chapters 37 to 50 tells his story. Genesis 50:19-20, makes clear that early on he already forgave his brothers:

19 But Joseph said to them, “Don't be afraid. Am I in the place of God? 20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

And the Almighty Father did bless him with a position in Egypt and offspring, not only for Joseph's own sake, but also for the sake of his plans with the Israelites.

51 Joseph named his firstborn Manasseh and said, “It is because God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father's household.” 52 The second son he named Ephraim and said, “It is because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering.”
Genesis 41:51-52

God the Father kept the Israelites safe and made them numerous until their return to Canaan. Moses words, Deuteronomy 19:10-11:

10 The LORD your God has increased your numbers so that today you are as numerous as the stars in the sky. 11 May the LORD, the God of your ancestors, increase you a thousand times and bless you as he has promised! 

2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.
Genesis 12:2


I believe if we want to count on the Almighty Father, the Creator of heaven and earth, forgiveness is the way to go. Personally I do forgive who ever did this in Itamar. But to forgive something like this, for those who are closer, it is hard, just extremely difficult, although not impossible. One needs a choice of the will, but also motivation for ones hart again and again. What better motivation than by his word in past, present and future?
