#F260 Bible Reading: Genesis 48-49

There is one verse that literally makes me tear up every time I read it and I’m not even surprised it was in my reading for today. Perhaps, it will surprise you which one.

And Israel said to Joseph, ”I never expected to see your face; and behold, God has let me see your offspring also.” Genesis 48:11

God gave him what he didn’t even know was possible (to once again lay eyes on his precious son.) God gave him more than his heart even knew to request (to see and bless his grandchildren.)

Is anything too hard for our God? {Genesis 18:14 / Jeremiah 32:17 / Jeremiah 32:27 / Luke 18:27}

We ask so little of God. Sadly, we expect so little from God.

The Lord longs to be gracious to us (Isaiah 30:18.) Longs to bless us abundantly above and beyond anything we can imagine (Ephesians 3:20!)

And we don’t even ask or expect Him to move on our behalf. James has a little something to say about that (James 1:7.)

Let’s expect God to do big things. Let’s watch expectantly for Him to move those mountains. Let’s praise Him in advance for what He is about to do in our lives and the lives of those around us.
