  1 But behold, I, Jacob, would speak unto you that are pure in heart. Look unto God with firmness of mind, and apray unto him with exceeding faith, and he will bconsole you in your cafflictions, and he will plead your cause, and send down djustice upon those who seek your destruction.



  2 O all ye that are pure in heart, lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God, and feast upon his alove; for ye may, if your bminds are cfirm, forever.

10 And now, if ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god who doth vary, and in whom there is shadow of changing, then have ye imagined up unto yourselves a god who is not a God of miracles.
11 But behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, even the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and it is that same God who created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are.

As a rule, leadership does not rest easily on young or inexperienced shoulders and human nature being what it is, young Joseph was manifesting the typical bravado of a boy his age who knows he is just coming into his own. Therefore, the telling ot these dreams was not so much an exhibition of boasting as it was a manifestation of the rich and exultant feelings which come to a youth when he suddenly realizes that he has a mission in life and a role to fill. He probably thought his family would be pelaed to know of these prophecies of his future leadership. But his brothers were bitter at what appeard to be a most preposteous presumption. This last dream even shocked Jacob. The scriputre says his "father rebuked him"

God has dealt with the weaknesses of his servants in every age. It is amazing how consistently the biographies of great bible leaders commence in weakness and then grow in strength....God knew each of these servants to be diamonds in the rough, and while their refining often involved the shock and heartbreak of many bitter experiences, never the less they each finally came forth as polished gems of brilliant integrity. Jacob was one of these who went through the polishing mill. The offense in his earlier life of trying to decieve his father finally faded into the shadows as God taught him complete purity of purpose and helped him rise to the pinnacle of his best potential self. As it was said of another, so might it be said of Jacob, "yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered."
