It was by faith that Joseph, when he was about to die, said confidently that the people of Israel would leave Egypt. He even commanded them to take his bones with them when they left.Hebrews 11:22
Joseph spent many years in Egypt after his brothers sold him into slavery. He saw failures as well as successes. He also saw the hand of God at work and amongst the people. He knew that the Israelites would not always be in Egypt even if they had to be there for a short time. Someday they would return to the promised land that God had given generations beforehand. His faith was so strong that he knew that God would deliver on his promises. He knew that God would always be faithful.
What about your faith? Do you have a faith that is so strong that you can say without a shadow of doubt that God will deliver on His promises? Spend some time in your Bible today reading some of the stories in Genesis about the men and women of faith.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for the faith of Joseph. May I have the same faith knowing you deliver on your promises. Amen.
