Read Genesis chapter 48
Genesis 48:4–and said to me, ‘I am going to make you fruitful and increase your numbers. I will make you a community of peoples, and I will give this land as an everlasting possession to your descendants after you.’
Jacob was reminding his son Joseph of the promise that God had made to their family. When we understand and experience the blessing and promises of God, it is important to be sure we share that with those who are coming up behind us so that they, too, can understand and share in the blessing of God. If we don’t teach them, how will they learn. Jacob understood that and so he would repeat the promise of God to his children in order to help them see and remember all that God had indicated that He would do through their family. God has promised to be with us, as His children. Are we sharing that blessing with our children?
Father, I pray that You will help me to be bold to share Your blessing with my family so that they may understand what You have for them is more important than anything else that they can experience. I know that You will do all that You have said You are going to do. Please be with me and bless me and help me share that blessing with others.
