Holy Ghost please guide my hand.

Genesis 43

Today Father,

Thank you for teaching me a simple phrase from Your Holy Spirit,

"It is not always what you say, but what you do, that those you encounter will remember. "

For those reading this for context:

Joseph has a feast with his brothers as 2nd in command of egypt during a worldwide famine and his brother's who sold him to slavery are now eating bread at his mercy without recognizing him. But there's a moment where Joseph makes a subtle move that blows them away. He enacts a Hebrew tradition:

32 And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.

33 And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marvelled one at another.

Secretly, Joseph played a move that his brothers would recognize, insomuch how could an "egyptian" know this custom?

That act made more marvel to his brothers than any word he spoke.

Even further,

Jesus has revealed Himself in the old and new testament by the bread and wine of the communion.

Once in the Christophany of melchizedek (Jesus) to Abraham, by firstly bringing bread and wine as a gift. All the way to Jesus doing the same at Emmaus after His resurrection in secret, to His disciples.

Almost like an inside joke may be used in our times.

Today Father, please give us the Holy Spirit to love in deed and truth and not only in word and tongue.

And we repent where we have failed to do otherwise.

Please bless this bread, the symbol of Jesus Christ's body given for us. May we eat.

Please bless this wine, the symbol of Jesus Christ's blood which is the blood of the new covenant shed for many for the remission of sins. May we drink all.

This symbol; speaks more than any words I could ever write.

Glory to You, Your Son Jesus Christ, and Your Holy Spirit, Father.

Happy Thanksgiving brothers and sisters. May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ keep you and your families this season.

In Jesus name amen.

This is a very good story you have chosen for this day. Sometimes it is much better to show people; like we are trying to do to the sleeping; than to tell them. Just like you said, they will remember what we do most of all. God's ways are the best. And this being Thanksgiving, I am thankful for you my friend Jtap and all my friends on GAW. Let's all try not to be thankful for just today; but for everyday of our lives.

Thank you Father for all that you have done and given me. Thank you for your precious son who shed his blood, to save me and give me a chance at everlasting life. Thank you Father for waking me up each day and helping me throughout the day. And thank you Father for all the prayers I have sent you, answered an unanswered. Bless you Lord, and bless my friend Jtap and all those who are spreading your word. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. Amen.

This is awesome- I really like the Inside joke, especially since this was done twice: once in the context of the celebration of Passover- when the Angel of death passed over any one with the blood of the lamb on the door frame, then later at Emmaus. (and thank you for that reminder!)
