January 25, 2023 – A Trust Reassured

 


  A Trust Reassured

January 25, 2023
Daily Reading – Genesis 49-50 / Matthew 15:21-39

 

GOD’S WORD:

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?

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?

January 23, 2023 – A Thought-out Reunion

  A Thought-out Reunion

January 23, 2023
Daily Reading – Genesis 44-45 / Matthew 14

GOD’S WORD:

Genesis 45:7 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

 

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

     The birthday cake is ordered, check. The balloons and helium are ordered, check. All the decorations have been purchased, check. The invitations have been sent, check. Does that remind you of the mental maneuvers you went through the last time that you were in charge of putting together a simple birthday party. You had a whole year to plan and prepare, yet the final details seem overwhelming at times. Add to that it is a surprise party so you cannot let the guest of honor find out what you are doing. AHHHH!!!

    Now imagine planning a surprise reunion for hundreds of people. There is an entire family of people God is preparing to reunite. A well-thought-out reunion indeed. How long did God plan this? Well according to Genesis 37:2 Joseph was seventeen when he was sold into slavery. Genesis 41:46 says He was thirty when he interpreted Pharaoh’s dream and made second in command. Egypt enjoyed seven years of plenty, and Genesis 45:6 says they had been in famine for two years. This puts Joseph at thirty-nine years old. So, if our math is correct, does that mean God planned this reunion for twenty two years? Actually, it was a lot longer than that. God has every detail of all eternity well planned out. Before Joseph was born, this reunion was in the working. Joseph said, God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.” 

 

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    An even greater reunion was thought-out and planned for those who have accepted Christ as Saviour. Jesus was sent before to preserve you and save your life by a great deliverance.

January 21 & 22, 2023 – The Treasures Of God

 
   The Treasures Of God

 
 January 21 & 22, 2023
 January 21 – Daily Reading – Genesis 42 – 43 / Matthew 13:36-58
 January 22 – NO READING

 

 

 GOD’S WORD:

Genesis 43:23 And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your God, and the God of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Simeon out unto them.

 

 GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

    People have been searching for lost or hidden treasures for years. What a joy after hunting and searching to find the reward at the end of it all. It almost makes you forget all the time and toil that went into finding the treasures you have sought. But what if the treasure searched for you?

 

    Joseph’s brothers were scared when they found that the money, they had brought to buy food from Egypt was back in the top of their sack along with the food. This did not seem like a treasure, it felt like a trap. In Genesis 43:18 it says, “And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Joseph’s house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.” They were sure it was a trap. However, in today’s verse Joseph’s Steward tells them; “…fear not: your God, and the God of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks:…” In other words, because of your God, the treasure found you.

 

     If we would stop for a moment to look back at our life, we will see that along the way, God has sprinkled treasures into each of our lives. Most often treasures we were not even searching for. Blessings he spread along our way. Placing a treasure to find on top of His provisions for us. 

 

 GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    James 1:17 says every good gift is from above. If we realize that, our heart begins to treasure all that is above. Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. If God becomes the treasure we seek, our heart is there with Him..  

 

Could your heart be the treasure God has been seeking?

 

 THE WEEK IN REVIEW:

    God is a very personal God. He’s involved with our lives in a very personal way. In this past week we have seen…

  ● The Touch Of God
  ● The Time With God
  ● The Terror Of God

  ● The Truth From God
  ● The Treasures Of God

     He’s personal because we are family. Revelation 21:7 “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”

 Enjoy today with your church and hear what God has prepared in the heart of His man for you this week.

   See you tomorrow.

January 20, 2023 – The Truth From God


The Truth From God

January 20, 2023
Daily Reading – Genesis 40 – 41 / Matthew 13:1-35

GOD’S WORD:

Genesis 41:38-39 And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

     In 1992 there was a movie called, “A Few Good Men” in which actor Jack Nicholson shouted his famous line, “YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH.” Since then this phrase has been echoed by many others in multiple situations. The truth is many people do not handle the truth well.


     Pharaoh recognized in Joseph a man who was filled with the Spirit of God. Even an unsaved Egyptian Ruler realized that Joseph’s God was not only powerful, but that what He said was true. God’s truth in Joseph made him appear discreet and wise in the eyes of this Pharaoh. By promoting Joseph, Pharaoh was unwittingly also saying that Joseph’s God tells the truth. Time would prove that the Pharaoh had made a good choice in believing Joseph and his God.

 

     In every born-again believer is the same Spirit of God that was in Joseph. The same unchanging God has given to us His unchanging truth. We, like Joseph have an opportunity to be discreet and wise as we handle God’s Words of truth. 2 Corinthians 4:1-2 says, “Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”

 

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

     Some people “CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH,” and they walk away from God.
     Some who have the truth, “WON’T HANDLE THE TRUTH.” They never tell a soul.
     While others will “MISHANDLE THE TRUTH,” using it in deceitful ways.



What will you do with God’s Truth in you?
