Genesis 50:24-25(NET): Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die. But God will surely come to you and lead you up from this land to the land he swore on oath to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Joseph made the sons of Israel swear an oath. He said, “God will surely come to you. Then you must carry my bones up from this place.”
There is an assurance that God’s word must birth in you. Such assurance that makes the reality of what it says so real that everything else in comparison pales. This is God’s desire for every believer.
Joseph had attained royalty in Egypt but yet, he never lost sight of the promise of God. He said to his brethren, SURELY God will come, God will lead you out of this land, and God will lead you into the land He promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Anyone can follow when physical evidences abound – The Israelites who perished in the wilderness are proof of that. They ate manna, ate quails, saw the Red sea part, walked on dry land in the middle of the sea, yet, they never truly believed God.
Not so Joseph. He basically said to them, “God will do what he said he will do, to show how much I believe that, take my body with you when you leave here”
Make the meditation of God’s word of utmost importance. Have a posture of mind that receives God’s word as an immutable revelation and not some divine opinion. Build yourself on your most holy faith. Then you will take God’s word as truth.
A man who sees God’s word as truth will order his life according to God’s word. The voice of God, as spoken by the word, will be sharp and clear in his heart even in the midst of the deafening din of this world’s counsel.
Are you ordering your life according to God’s word or are your cowering to this world’s counsel? Abide in God and let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, Help me order my life according to your truth and be fruitful in all things. Amen.
