Today’s reading Genesis 48-50

Genesis 48:3 And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,

God had appeared to Jacob’s dad and granddad but that was not enough. Jacob needs a personal visit from God. You need that visit in salvation because you cannot live on what God has done in your parent’s lives. You must personally know Jesus as your Saviour.

God gave direction to Jacob’s dad and granddad but that also wasn’t enough. He had to know that God heard him, led him, and worked in his life.

I love the way he says that God appeared to him.

Now the lesson for today is that you would seek God with all of your heart. That you would know Him personally through Jesus Christ. That you would hear from God and get His direction in your life.

Do not try to live on your family heritage. Do not try to think that God has directed your family from your parents and you are simply to follow until God speaks to you.

Every day get into the Bible. Every day seek God and see what He has for you. Be careful to know Him and His will.

Walk with God. You can’t live off of someone else’s blessings.
