This Is My Prayer!

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Loving Father, Awesome God, our God, help us to understand your power. Help us to have the patience to wait for answers from You. We confess we want answers to appear now, but we know your timing is perfect. Enable us to understand the things that are happening in response to our prayers, even if we cannot see them. Show us how to walk and live by faith and not by sight. Grant us the ability to envision the step-by-step progress of Your work, the power of little-by-little progress. Drive our enenies from before us. Increase our trust in You, the God to whom we pray, worship and adore. Help us not to lean upon our own understanding, but to lean upon the God who loves us and cares for us, upon Jesus our Savior. It is in His name that we pray and ask these things. Amen!

Genesis 46:28-47:12

As you move through the book of Genesis you are confronted with the horrors of family life.

Lamech, who lived before the flood, was guilty of polygamy.
Ham mocked the nakedness of his father after the flood.
Abram engages in an adulterous affair with Hagar.
Sodom and Gomorrah are destroyed because of homosexuality.
Lot commits incest with his daughters.
Abraham tempts Abimelech to commit adultery with Sarah.
Isaac plays favorites with his sons, choosing Esau over Jacob.
Jacob has thirteen children by four different women.
Judah commits incest with his daughter-in-law Tamar.

By the time we walk out of the book in chapter 50, we have seen nearly every evil that can take place within a family. These two chapters are a rare, but refreshing, exception.

As we learned a long time ago, when we began this study, Joseph’s family was very dysfunctional. There was rampant sin, open hatred, favoritism and wickedness of every kind. But, these chapters teach us that there is hope for the home; there is a future for the family!

These verses remind us that there is hope for the family. They teach us that there is hope for your family. Let’s move through this passage and see what the Lord has to say to our church and our families. I want to share the truths that come to mind from these verses as we look to see about Joseph’s Family Reunion.


These verses talk about the people who came down into Egypt with Jacob to meet Joseph. There are a few important lessons here that we do not want to miss. These lessons have something to teach us about our own families.

v. 26 Their Number – When Jacob was forced to leave home many years earlier, the prospects for his future did not look all that bright. He had been forced to leave his home under a cloud of shame after having deceived his father. He set out for his uncle’s house to find a wife, which he did. But, he would spend the next twenty years there being deceived by his uncle Laban. Jacob’s family began to grow and his wealth began to increase. Still there was trouble in his home and family. His children were out of control. There was discord between his wives. It must have seemed as though life would always be hard, unsettled and difficult for Jacob and his family.

God had a plan! Jacob met God one night while he was on his way to his uncle’s house, (Gen. 28). He had another encounter with God on the way back to Bethel, (Gen. 32). Those two encounters with Almighty God changed Jacob’s life forever.

God took a solitary man by the name of Jacob and brought through him the nation of Israel. What appeared to be a family riddle and ruined by dysfunction and tragedy was actually a picture of God’s grace in the making.

Who would have thought that a fugitive would lead a family of seventy into Egypt? It was the work of God! Who would have guessed that 400 years later Moses would lead two million or more out of Egypt? It was the work of God! Who would have imagined that from this little band that included Jacob, his twelve sons, one daughter, fifty-two grandchildren and four great-grandsons would one day come the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, who would give His life a ransom to redeem His people from the slavery of their sins? It was an incredible, amazing work of Almighty God!

Now, consider your own family. It may appear that things are out of control in the lives of those you love and care for, but I would remind you that God has a plan. Anyone looking at Jacob’s family would have said, “What’s the use? These people are hopeless!” The truth is, God was working all the time, and He is working in your family too. Keep praying for them. Keep walking right in front of them. Keep trusting the Lord to do the right thing. He will! He has a plan! Praise God! That helps me! How about you?

v. 10-11 Their Natures – These people might have been part of God’s eternal plan, but they were not perfect. In fact, they were a long way from it! Still, there is a glimpse of the grace of God at work here.

In this list of names, there is a fact or two that we need to take note of today. In verse 10 we are given the names of Simeon’s sons. The last phrase tells us that one of his sons was born to “a Canaanitish woman.” The Canaanites were an accursed people and marriage to them was forbidden.

But, look at verse 12. This verse lists the offspring of Judah. His first three sons, Er, Onan and Shelah were by his wife, who was also a Canaanite, (Gen. 38:2). There is no mention of this sin in Judah’s life. Why? Judah had stood before Joseph and made a full confession. As a result, he was pardoned and forgiven by God, (Gen. 44). Simeon had continued in his sin and had never repented and his sin is remembered. God had put away the sin of Judah and remembered it no more.

That is a blessing! It teaches us that when confession is made, sin is forgiven, (1 John 1:9). And, when sin is forgiven, sin is forever forgotten, (Psa. 103:12; Isa. 38:17; Isa. 43:25; Jer. 50:20; Mic. 7:19; Col. 2:13-14; 1 John 1:7).

v. 26 Their Names – As I read these verses, I am reminded that the Lord knew every detail and every connection within the family of Jacob. He knew who belonged to whom and He knows who was where. God saw it every single thing and He took note of it all. He knew every detail of Jacob’s family. He knew every individual, every sin, every problem, every fear, and every worry.

He knows everything about your family too! He knows every secret you are trying to hide. He knows everything that has been hidden away from the eyes of others. He knows where all the skeletons are hidden. He knows!

He also knows about all the needs in your family. He knows every lost soul. He knows everyone that has turned away from Him and His ways. He knows every problem, every worry, every need, every valley, every failure and every success. He knows the pain in your heart. He knows the joy in your soul. He knows and He cares, (Heb. 4:15-16)! You would be well served to make your family a constant object of prayer before the Father’s throne.

He knows and He is working! It may not appear to be the case, but He is busy working in the hearts and lives of those you love. Put them in His hands one more time and look to Him for the work your family needs, (1 Pet. 5:7).

“I Know Whom I Have Believed” By Daniel W. Whittle (1883)

I know not why God’s wondrous grace To me He hath made
known, Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love Redeemed me for
His own.
But “I know Whom I have believed,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed
Unto Him against that day.”

I know not how this saving faith To me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His Word Wrought peace within my

I know not how the Spirit moves, Convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through the Word, Creating faith in Him.

I know not what of good or ill May be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days, Before His face I see.

I know not when my Lord may come, At night or noonday fair,
Nor if I walk the vale with Him, Or meet Him in the air.

Genesis 45:25-47:7
IT IS ENOUGH, Lesson 60c


I don’t know if you saw this or not, but in verses 25-27 the brothers returned home and told a broken, doubting man named “Jacob” that Joseph was alive. At first he refused to believe them, but when he saw the wagons, the Bible says in verse 28, “And Israel said, it is enough…”

You see, “Jacob” was this man’s fleshly name. It means “schemer, trickster, deceiver.” Jacob was all those things and more. One night, near a brook name Jabbok, Jacob met the Lord. They wrestled through the night and Jacob got a new name. The Lord changed his name to “Israel”. This mane means “Prince of God”, (Gen. 32:28). This was his spiritual name.

Do you see it? It was the flesh that doubted the news he heard. When Jacob was in control we see a whining, fearful, faithless man. But, when faith reacted within his heart, Israel, the new man believed God and followed the Lord confidently.

v. 1 Jacob’s Fear – So, Jacob takes his possessions and heads with his family to go to Egypt. You will notice that Pharaoh sent word that they would not need their stuff down in Egypt, (Gen. 45:20). They were to leave all their things behind, because Pharaoh would give them all they needed when they arrived in Egypt. Jacob takes everything he has. He packs all his stuff and takes it with him. It seems that he is still having a hard time letting go of his past.

Isn’t that just like us? We are so filled with fear that we find it hard to completely trust the Lord. We want to hang to some of our “stuff”. If we could just learn to trust the Lord completely, we would see that He could take care of us. Like Jacob, we still have our doubts and our fears.

v. 1b-4 Jacob’s Faith – The Bible says they came to Beersheba. Now, Beersheba was at the very southern end of Canaan. When a person traveled past Beersheba, he had left the Promised Land behind. Before Israel leaves Canaan he pauses to worship the Lord. There can be little doubt that Jacob remembered the stories of when his grandfather Abraham left Canaan to go down to Egypt, (Gen. 12:10-20). He remembered the trouble that came to the family because of Abraham’s lack of faith. Before he makes the same journey, Jacob wants to know that this is the Lord’s will for his life.

God answers Jacob’s prayers and reassures him that all is well. God promises to go with Jacob. God promises to protect Jacob. God promises Jacob that he will see Joseph and that Joseph will attend to him when he dies. God gives Jacob the green light to go to Joseph.

Jacob’s example is a good one for us to follow today. Before he took such a large step, he sought the lord’s face in the matter. We must do the same! We only pass through this world one time and we need to be sure that we get it right. There is no time for mistakes, wrong roads and detours. The Lord has a plan and He has a path fo us; it is our duty to find His plan and walk in His path. Be sure you wait before the Lord and discover His will before you make any major decision in your life.

v. 5-7 Jacob’s Future – Jacob hears the Word of the Lord and he moves to follow God. Because he does, the family of Israel is preserved through the famine. More importantly, they are in a position to be protected by the armies of Egypt. Over the next few hundred years, they will grow from a struggling family to a nation numbering a few million.
Because Jacob followed God, he put his family in a position to be blessed of the Lord. I want that for my family, and for my life, how about you? When we go with the Lord, we will always find ourselves in places of blessing and growth.

Conc: Where does this text find you today?

Does it find you living in fear and doubt over various situations in your life? If so, let me assure that our Lord is enough for your situation. Bring it to Him, leave it with Him and look to Him for the peace and help you need. He will convince you that “It is enough.”

Does it find you needing Heavenly provisions for your journey? Come talk to Him about the need. He might just have a wagon ready for you. He will show you that “It is enough.”

Does it find you needing direction for some big step in your life? Bring it to Him. You will find that “It is enough!”

“ Bring Christ Your Broken Life” By T. O. Chisholm (1935)

Bring Christ your broken life, So marred by sin. He will create anew, Make whole again. Your empty wasted years He will restore, And your iniquities, Remember no more

Bring Him your every care if great or small whatever troubles you oh, bring it all
Bring him the haunting fears the nameless dread thy heart he will relieve and lift up thy head

Bring HIm your weariness receive his rest Weep out your blinding tears
upon his breast His love is wonderful his power is great and none that trust in him shall be desolate

Blest Saviour of us all almighty friend! His presence shall be ours unto the end
without him life would be how dark how drear but with him morning breaks and Heaven is near!

Genesis 45:25-47:7
IT IS ENOUGH, Lesson 60b


The sons of Jacob have returned from Egypt with incredible news. Jacob, however, is having a hard time comprehending what he is hearing. His sons have concrete evidence that what they are saying is true. They have a bunch of empty wagons, (v. 19), and they have ten donkeys carrying the best of the land of Egypt, (v. 23). Let’s watch this meeting between Jacob and his sons as it unfolds.

The Wagons Came With Problems – “they told him all the words of Joseph.” Let that sink in for a moment. For over twenty-five years these men have allowed their father to believe that his favorite son had been killed by wild animals. For twenty-five years, they had deceived their father and they had deprived him of the companionship of his son Joseph.

Now, they stand before him and everything comes out. They tell him about all the lies and all the cover-ups. They tell him how Joseph worked with them until they made a full confession. Then they tell him about Joseph and the glory he has down in Egypt, (v. 13). Jacob learns that the son he thought was a dead man is really the Governor of all the land of Egypt. It is more than he can grasp.

Surely the old man is more confused than ever as he hears these men tell their story. He might have been angry as they told how they lied to him and allowed him to suffer the pain of grief all those years. On the other hand, hope is beginning to take root in his heart. “What if they are telling the truth? What if Joseph really is alive? Is it possible?”

The Wagons Came With Proof – As Jacob listened to these sons tell their tale, he really wanted to believe it. But, could he believe anything his sons told him? Did he dare believe anything these deceptive boys said to him?

As these doubts coursed through his mind, perhaps one of his sons sensed the difficulty his father was having with their story. Maybe he said, “Father, if you can’t take our word for it, then just look outside. Look at what Joseph sent to us from Egypt.”

The old man goes to the door of the tent and looks out. To his amazement there are the ten donkeys loaded down with food, provisions, and the treasures of Egypt. There are the wagons. Those surely aren’t his wagons! He didn’t own that many. His didn’t look like that. These wagons had the markings of a different country on them. These wagons had the appearance of Egypt about them. Jacob sees the wagons and he believes. He says, “It is enough!”

For the first time in over twenty years a smile begins to form at the corners of Jacob’s mouth. For the first time in as many years tears of joy spill out of the old man’s eyes and course their way down his gnarled face. For the first time in decades, laughter erupts from Jacob’s mouth and he cries “It is enough! I will go and see him before I die!” Jacob saw the wagons and he was satisfied!

The Wagons Came With A Purpose – Verse 19 tells us that the wagons were sent to carry Jacob and his family to their new home in Egypt. The wagons were sent to transport them home.

Throughout these chapters Joseph is a constant picture of the Lord Jesus Christ. We see Jesus in Joseph’s forgiveness of his brothers; in his role as the savior of life; in his sufferings; in his righteousness; and we see the face of Jesus in this account as well.
Just as surely as Joseph sent wagons to carry his father safely into Egypt; our Savior has given us some very precious blessings that help us make it through this world. The wagons Joseph sent were empty; but the promises we have received from Jesus are filled with blessing, life, hope, and plenty. Let me share a few of our “heavenly wagons” with you today.

His Spirit – John 16:13; 14:18 – The Spirit of God indwells us; fills us; guides us and uses us.

His Presence – Matt. 28:20; Heb. 13:5 – He has promised to walk every step of the journey with us.

His Provisions – Phil. 4:19; Matt. 6:25-34 – Our Lord has promised to meet every need in our lives for His glory.

His Word – Psa. 119:105; Job 23:12 – God has given us a perfectly inspired and preserved record of Himself in the Bible. It is without error. It feeds the saint and convicts the sinner. It converts the soul and guides the steps.

His Salvation – Eph. 2:8-9; John 3:16; Acts 16:31 – The salvation God gives is perfect and complete. It washes away every sin and makes the sinner ever white clean. It is a salvation that endures forever. It is a salvation that can take the vilest sinner and transform them into the holiest saint.

His Return – Acts 1:9-11; John 14:1-3; 1 Thes. 4:16-18 – Our Savior died on the cross, rose again three days later and then He ascended back to Heaven. He left us with His promise that He would return again to take us home that we might spent eternity with Him in Heaven.

Those are but a few of the many blessed wagons of glory that exist to carry us safely into a place called Heaven!

“ Home of the Soul” By James Rowe (1912)

If for the prize we have striven, After our labors are o’er, Rest to our souls will be given,
On the eternal shore.

Home of the soul, beautiful home, There we shall rest, never to roam; Free from all care, happy and bright, Jesus is there, He is the light! Oft in the storm, lonely are we, Sighing for home, longing for thee, Beautiful home of the ransomed, beside the crystal sea.

Yes, a sweet rest is remaining For the true children of God, Where there will be no complaining, Never a chast’ning rod.

Soon, the bright homeland adoring, We shall behold the glad dawn; Lean on the Lord till the morning, Trust till the night is gone.

Genesis 45:25-47:7
IT IS ENOUGH, Lesson 60a

It’s been a while since we visited with our friend Jacob. Maybe we should take just a moment to bring our minds up to date.

Joseph was the eleventh of Jacob’s twelve sons. He was also his father’s favorite son. His ten older brothers were jealous of Joseph’s relationship with their father. They even grew to hate their brother Joseph. They hated him so much that they sold him as a slave. Joseph’s path as a slave took him into Egypt. He prospered there for a while, but eventually, he was falsely accused of attempted rape and spent several long years in prison.

It looked like God had forgotten all about Joseph, but that was just the way things appeared. In all of his trials, God had been with Joseph, leading him blessing him and developing him for God’s glory. After a time, God delivered Joseph from the prison and brought him to the attention of Pharaoh. Pharaoh took Joseph from the prison and made him the Prime Minister of Egypt.

In that new position, Joseph had great power and wealth. He was used of the Lord to save the nation, and much of the known world in that day, from certain starvation. A famine gripped the whole world, and people from all over came to Egypt to buy food.

Among those who came were the ten older brothers of Joseph. They did not recognize him, but he knew who they were. Through a series of events, Joseph brought his brothers to a place of confession. They admitted what they had done to him years earlier. Eventually, Joseph reveals his identity to his brothers and they are reconciled.
In the passage before us today, Joseph has sent his brothers back to Canaan to get their father and their families. They have all been invited to move to Egypt where they can be fed and protected by Joseph.

In our text today, we see Jacob finding out that his son Joseph is still alive. We see Him leave his home in Canaan to go to Egypt to meet his beloved Joseph. As we watch old Jacob moving down to Egypt, we are allowed to see how God can bring victory out of pain and sorrow. Notice the facts of this story with me as we watch God take a hopeless situation and transform it into a more than enough experience. I want you to see that this is A Tale Of Worries; A Tale Of Wagons; and A Tale Of Worship. Let’s consider all of that as we look on “It Is Enough“.


The life of Jacob has been a life of struggles and a life of heartbreaks. He grew up in a home where there was turmoil between himself and his brother Esau. He had to leave home after he helped his mother deceive his father and after he stole his brother’s birthright. Jacob spent the next twenty-plus years working for his uncle Laban. He and his uncle worked as hard as they could to trick and deceive the other. Finally Jacob leaves Laban’s house to return to the land of his fathers. On the way home, his beloved wife Rachel dies. Later, his favorite son Joseph goes missing and is presumed dead. That is a thumbnail sketch of Jacob’s life, but it sets the stage for the old man he has become. Let’s watch Jacob in action in these verses.

Jacob’s Disposition – From an early age Jacob had been taught to expect the worse. He has been trained to be a doubter and a worrier. Notice the events that made him this way.

His Mother Contributed To This – She led Jacob to believe that his father loved Esau more than he loved Jacob, (Gen. 27:5-30). She convinced Jacob that Esau was out to kill him, and that he should leave the home, (Gen. 27:41-45).

His Uncle Contributed To This – He deceived Jacob when he gave Jacob Leah for a wife instead of Rachel, (Gen. 29:16-30). He deceived Jacob when he made his work all those years for his wives and flocks, (Gen. 30). Laban even threatened to kill Jacob, (Gen. 31:17-55).

His Wife Contributed To This – Leah accused Jacob of not loving her, (Gen. 29:32.) Rachel blames Jacob for her failure to conceive children, (Gen. 30:1).

His Sons Contributed To This – They came to him carrying the coat of Joseph. They had killed a goat and smeared its blood on the coat. When Jacob saw the coat, his doubts rose to the occasion and he assumed that Joseph must be dead, (Gen. 37:31-35).

The Events Of Life Contributed To This – He was forced to leave his home. He was deceived by his uncle. He lived with four wives and twelve children. His sons, with the exception of Joseph and Benjamin, were evil men. His own home was filled with rank immorality and sin. His wife died. His brother hated him. His sons deceived him. His favorite son was stripped from him.

Jacob had been trained by the events of his life and by the influence of those around him to be a doubter and a worrier. His sons are down in Egypt and I am sure Jacob thinks that he will never see them alive again. He expects the worst possible outcome all the time. Some of you have had that same kind of training. You have been taught to expect the worse.

Maybe it was a parent that didn’t love. Maybe it was a trusted adult that violated you. Maybe it was a supposed friend who totally destroyed your confidence and trust in people. Maybe you still hear the voices in your head that say things like, “You are worthless! I wish you have never been born! What a loser you are! You can’t do anything right! You’ll turn out just like you mother/father.” Maybe you have walked through some hard places that have left their scars on your mind and on your heart.

These things are part of our world! They shouldn’t be, but they are the product of sin. And when they happen, they can be devastating, and they can mark your mind for a lifetime. That is why we must protect our minds from the attacks of the flesh and the enemy, (2 Cor. 10:3-6). We need to preach to our own hearts every now and then. We need to remind ourselves that, in Jesus Christ, things are different, (2 Tim. 1:7). Your past and your problems should not be allowed to shape the person you are today. You might not just be able to forget what you have heard and seen, but God can help you get past the evils that would shape you, He can help you walk on to victory for His glory, (Rom. 8:37; 1 Cor. 15:57).

Jacob’s Doubts – His sons return from Egypt and they come with good news! They tell their father that Joseph is alive and well down in Egypt. They tell him that Joseph is the ruler of the entire land. When Jacob hears this, his heart actually skips a few beats. He can’t believe what he is hearing. He refuses to believe that it could even be true. Jacob had held so tightly to his belief that Joseph was dead for so many years, that he could not even grasp the truth that he might be alive. The good news he heard was simply too good to be true!

That’s the problem with doubt; it has the power to extinguish the flame of faith on our hearts. Doubt is a powerful weapon! Notice how doubt manifested itself in several places in the Bible.

Doubt looked in the face of the Life and doubted His power to accomplish a resurrection (John 11:39).
Doubt told Jairus it was too late for his daughter ( Mark 5:35).
Doubt told the Creator that it was the wrong time and place to fish ( Luke 5:5).
Doubt told the Lord God that there were too many people and not enough food, (John 6:9).
Doubt told the prophet Elisha that there was nothing in the house but a small pot of oil.
Doubt was wrong in every case! Doubt is always wrong! When doubts come your way, remind them of just Who your God is! He is a God of matchless, limitless power, (Matt. 28:18; Eph. 3:20). He is the God Who can do anything He pleases to do, anytime He pleases to do it!

He can even take a situation like the one before us in this text and change it all around for His glory. Our God is able to take “is not”, (Gen. 37:30) and change it into “it is”, (Gen. 45:26)! All the while Jacob thought Joseph “was not”, Joseph was alive and well down in Egypt. Jacob was at home crying “is not, is not, is not!” God is Heaven was looking at the same set of facts and He was saying, “He is! He is! He is!”

Never forget that Heaven can see what you can’t. Here is what you need to remember the next time you face an “Is not” situation in your life.( Psalm 37:3-5), (3) “Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
(4) Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
(5) Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”

“It Is No Secret” By Stuart Hamblen (1950)

The chimes of time ring out the news Another day is through
Someone slipped and fell Was that someone you?
You may have longed for added strength Your courage to renew
Do not be disheartened For I have news for you
It is no secret what God can do
What He's done for others He will do for you
With arms wide open He'll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do

There is no night for in His light You'll never walk alone
Always feel at home Wherever you may roam
There is no power can conquer you While God is on your side
Take Him at His promise Don't run away and hide
It is no secret what God can do
What He's done for others He will do for you
With arms wide open He'll pardon you
It is no secret what God can do
It is no secret what God can do
