Realizing the presence, promise, and power of the Kingdom of God.

Psalm 105:13-22

When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people; He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm. Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread. He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him. The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance: To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

One of the amazing parts of the Joseph story is that it never indicates that he lost heart in all this turmoil. Sold as a slave by his brothers to an Egyptian; whose wife tries to ensnare him and Joseph winds up in jail. Fellow inmates, whom he befriended, promptly forget his service to them when they are released. Finally gets out and rises to second command in all of Egypt.

I wonder if any Egyptian got the message to “not touch His anointed”?
