Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, because Joseph had made the Israelites swear a solemn oath, saying, “God will certainly come to your aid; then you must take my bones with you from this place.”
Through his faith, Joseph could see the future. He didn’t know how, and he was not sure of when, but he knew God was good to his people. He knew one day his people would return to the land and he wanted to be part of that. How do we plan? Do we just think about what gets us through today, or do we think beyond tomorrow? Are you planning and believing for the best, or do we actually plan at all. Trust the Lord. If he were to “do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us” (Eps 3:20)? What would we need to plan differently? Don’t just hold on for dear life and muddle through, we serve a big God.
