Believe it or not God’s plan to save the world involved the passing of a baton, an inter-generational hand-off of blessing from one family to another. But, for this exchange to take place, we must know exactly what it is that we are grasping and giving away. To confirm the details, listen in to this study of Genesis 48.
On Palm Sunday, Jesus's triumphal entry into Jerusalem was so well attended because many were welcoming a coming king... but in a political sense. They thought He'd be a military leader who'd fix their earthly problems. This tendency still plagues us today. We have a choice: demand that God do for us what we think He should do, or let Him do it His way. Is it better to have the king we want, or the King we need?

One of the most important questions we can ask of a passage is "Why?". It never changes the "What", but it makes it more effective, more powerful. In this passage we see God lovingly and intentionally orchestrating events in order to give this young, small, precious church a living picture of the treasure that is theirs in Christ that they would not soon forget. Even in the face of death, the life remains in us.

Jesus healed the parlytic who believed, but the paralytic had to get up and walk. God can help us, but we must get up and do something.

Are you afraid to testify? Do you fear what testifying to the truth of Christ might mean for you? There is no reason to fear. God has purposed for you to testify in specific, important ways and to share the victory and glory with you, his child. Trust in His sovereign care; his plan and purposes are sure to be achieved.

When we feel stuck testifying to the same, unresponsive audience, we must remember we are testifying on God's timetable. We must continue to make full use of every opportunity God gives and resist making use of those that God doesn't give.

One thing this passage reveals about us is that we are not in control. Let's look at some beautiful truths about our God who is in control and says, "I know & love you, I have chosen you, I want you to know me fully, and what I choose to do I always accomplish."
The Way Out
What is the Exodus really about? It's about how God offers a way out for His people. But it is about something much greater than a way out of physical circumstances. God desires to deliver His people, not from a place, but from sin and its effects. God offers The Way Out of bondage through a deliverer.
