Hebrews 11:22 (ESV)

By Faith

22 By faith Joseph, at the end of his life, made mention of the exodus of the Israelites and gave directions concerning his bones.


Joseph spent all of his adult life in Egypt and, even though he was a fourth-generation heir of the promise given to Abraham, he never returned to Canaan while he was alive. Yet, facing death, he still had faith that God would fulfill His promise and demonstrated that confidence by making his brothers promise to take his bones back to Canaan for burial.[1]  This reminds me of the Lord’s Prayer when we pray “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done.”   We can’t stop the movement of God’s will or His movements.  We pray that he uses us to carry out his will.


I pray: O Lord, use me in building your kingdom.  Stop me when I run contrary to your will.  Amen.
