January 24, 2023 – A Truth Restated

 


  A Truth Restated

January 24, 2023
Daily Reading – Genesis 46-48 / Matthew 15:1-20

 

GOD’S WORD:

Genesis 48:16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.

 

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

   

     Years ago, I sold printing and advertising. I read several books on how to sell things. I went to seminars to help me be a better businessman. One such session that I attended was on how to better understand and remember your customer, and how to be remembered by them as well. Part of what they taught reinforced what I had been reading. They said in order to remember things, repeat them often. If you are meeting a new customer, ask their name and then use it often during your conversation with them. Whether we know it or not, everyone likes to hear their name spoken aloud. Also, repeating something several times helps lock it into our memory. Actually, this was God’s idea way before man thought they came up with it.  

 

     God shared a truth with Abram in Genesis 12:2-3. He said, “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”  This was restated several times to Abraham, then to Isaac, and then again to Jacob. Now Jacob is making sure this truth is never forgotten. God is using him to say it yet again to the next generation.

 

     God does not restate His promises to make them happen. He does it to help us to remember

 

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

     God’s Word is still His promises and still His truth. God used Jacob to restate His promises and truth to the next generation. He should be using us to do the same thing.

 

What truth’s has God shared with you that you should be restating with the next generation?
