Faith Makes Provision

Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the Lord. Psalm 102:18

I have had to learn that I am not making this journey of faith, even meandering after Moses, on my own. I have already suffered the crash and burn that comes from trying to fly alone…so the scars of the crash prompt me to stay connected with a people of faith. My weaknesses are now very obvious to me every day, I am in training still. This training has me meandering after Moses.

I have followed through the plagues and stood on the Holy ground of Passover Salvation and now will follow as the Israelites leave the land that pictures captivity to sin and death. But first we stop to keep a promise.

Even though Moses moves with the urgency of haste (Ex 12:11), he makes time to arrange that the bones of Joseph move with the people. In the space of just one verse (Ex 13:19) Moses shares with us another great sign post for our journey of faith. He writes about the promise that Joseph made his heirs swear to in Genesis 50:25, that when…not if…they leave Egypt, they would carry his bones with them. He looked forward in faith and made provision for what was to come many years later.

“By faith Joseph, when his end was near, spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions about his bones.” Hebrews 11:22

Faith makes provision. This is a tremendous word in my journey. Do I behave like I believe? Moses records a promise and a fulfillment not just for us to just witness the faithfulness of the Israelites in keeping the promise. But look! What faithfulness there is in the one who has the Israelites MAKE the promise! To say “Today I will make provision for a distant tomorrow” is a great testimony of faith. Do I behave today in a way that testifies that I believe what is written about our tomorrows? I am still in training. What word of encouragement do you have in this area?

  1. Faith makes provision ~~~ God prompts to speak a word for him to someone *I* think is a hopeless case, but because I recognise His voice and His authority, faith obeys His call. It is not for me to know the outcome, but simply to obey.

    Faith makes provision – when grandparents give their grandchild a child’s Bible when celebrating it’s first month after birth, they are making provision in faith that the child will be taught the Word by the parents. When a child is disciplined in the ways of The Lord, parents in faith trust the child will grow up in the way he should go and that when he is old he will not depart from it.
    When we sow the seeds of the gospel we believe that
    ” So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11

    Praise The Lord, it is for us to obey His Word and for Him to accomplish His purpose.
    Thank you CeeCee for your sharing.
