God will come to your aid

My Daily Journal:

I know many people find comfort in the words of Genesis 50:24 that God will come to your aid.  But, as a husband, father and provider to my family, church and community I find special promise in these words and a comfort, a real lifting of a burden through these words.

I want to provide for those I love.  I want to protect them and care for them.  I want to serve them and model the love of God to them.  But how do you continue to do that after you die.  There is, obviously, financial planning that should take place and seeds that are planted throughout the years, but how can you possibly know if the best laid plans will be enough?

But, the reassurance that God will come to their aid is a huge relief.  And, as it was when the Holy Spirit was sent after Christ left, this verse tells me that there is actually a special outpouring of blessing that God will send to the ones I love and care for to specifically fill the void that would otherwise be present with my inevitable passing some day.  What a powerful and reassuring promise!

  1. I am a CL in a class also. I like to print the scriptures for each lesson’s questions so that I can have a quick folder to grab when I am on the “run” with life. Here is a link to a location where the scriptures for the year have already been compiled (NIV 1984) for each week’s lesson of the Matthew study. You can use it personally and feel free to direct others to it if you feel it would help them. I get “no compensation” out of sharing this link, just feel that many people could benefit, particularly those who have full time jobs, studying God’s Word and serve the Lord.
