Through all of the disasters, God had a great plan from the beginning.
Jacob's family (70+ people) relocated to Goshen. It was the best part of the Egyptian land. The family was fruitful and multiplied. Jacob lived there for 17 years. Before his death, he asked Joseph to bury him in the land of his fathers.
Jacob adopted Joseph's sons Ephraim & Manasseh, replacing Reuben as his firstborn, likely because of his previous sin with Bilhah. He blessed them, giving his younger son the first blessing.
"We cannot help but be amazed at how God had chosen this ordinary and dysfunctional family to be His people." Realizing this, we understand that God can use us to accomplish his purposes. 'God's plan will always prevail. His plan is good. He is waiting and ready to redeem."
