KEY VERSE: Genesis 46:3–4 (God speaking to Jacob)
“I am God, the God of your father,” the voice said. “Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for there I will make your family into a great nation. I will go with you down to Egypt, and I will bring you back again. You will die in Egypt, but Joseph will be with you to close your eyes.”

Don’t forget who I am. I am God. I am your creator. I am your heavenly father. I can heal families and bring hope to broken homes. And whether you believe it or not, I can do it in your family. I give life to the dead, so nothing is impossible for me. Nothing. Spend as much time praying for your family as you do dismissing them, and you will see amazing things happen. Are you interested in that, or are there other issues you want my help with first?

Cry out to me and take the steps of faith I ask you to take. Believe in miracles. I want to restore your family, and I want to renew you. I want your family to be the one everyone looks to when they need inspiration. Point them to me. Help them know I can do for them what I do for you. 

Be grateful for your family and friends. Show and tell them how you feel. Look for an opportunity to share your appreciation and gratitude with each family member and your closest friends.
