There is a contrast between Jacob’s distress and Joseph’s peace in the difficulties they each face.

Loss of Joseph.
Loss of Simeon.

Fear of impending danger.
Fear of loss.
Fear of untrustworthy sons.

Blinded by Inner Doubts.

Doubting God’s plan.
Doubting God’s protection.
Doubting God’s provision.


Encourage yourself in the Lord.
Resist the Devil.
Hope in the goodness of God.
Deny the lies that crop up.
