Genesis 45:28 And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die.
Israel, Jacob, finds out that Joseph is alive. Since he discovered that Joseph may have died by wild beasts he has been a walking dead man. It seemed that his heart went out of him. He didn’t have much reason to live.
Now Joseph is alive. He will go see him before he finally dies.
I find myself like this. Letting the joy go out and resigning myself long before God would have it that way. God gave us life to live. He gives us life each morning to live to its fullest for Him and His glory.
I may be the only person that has a problem with this. Maybe that is why the passage of Scripture so speaks to me. It shows me that I have a bad attitude. I confess that attitude.
As long as I have breath and life I want to use it all for the Lord Jesus. I do not know how much life He will give me but I know that I want to stay alive and use it for him. I do not want to become a walking zombie!
