Daily Reading – Genesis 49-50 / Matthew 15:21-39
Genesis 50:24 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
Today, when it comes to land management, every detail must be documented and signed by witnesses. To entrust land to another party may include a Revocable Trust. A legal definition of a Revocable Trust: “Also known as a living trust, allows you to retain control of the assets during your lifetime. It is flexible and can be dissolved at any time, should circumstances or intentions change. A revocable trust typically becomes irrevocable upon the death of the grantor. You can name yourself trustee and retain ownership and control over the trust, its terms, and assets during your lifetime, but make provisions for a successor to manage them in event of your incapacity or death.” With this Trust, it would be good on occasion to reassure the person you have entrusted land to, this is still your intention.
When God promised Abram the land on the other side of the Jordan, his family may have thought they would never leave that land. However, time and again we find the descendants of Abraham on and off this promised land. When off the land, others moved in, built homes there and took over. However, God never entrusted this land to them. He retains ownership of it. He may entrust it to whom He chooses. In today’s verse Joseph reminds the family, God will bring you back to the old homestead. He gave it to our forefathers, He still holds the deed, and He always keeps his Word. It is just a little reassurance.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
There is another land promised to those who trust in Christ. An inheritance in heaven. In Ephesians 1:13 & 14 it says the Holy Spirit is the earnest, proof of our inheritance.
Does God’s Trust Reassurance bring you peace?
