“And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.” (Genesis 45:7 KJV)
Often times, while we are fretting and sorrowing over the circumstances of our lives, God is at work. The Master craftsman is at work. And He does not abandon any project until its completion. You are a project in the hands of the Master craftsman!
In the control tower, the man in charge sees all the planes in operation on his screen. He knows their directions, but the pilot in each plane only sees his own direction. So when he tells a pilot to hold on, if that pilot does not understand the dynamics of flying, he will feel like landing. But that will be a major risk because he can crash. The control tower knows which plane is about to land. Without his control, there will be fatal crashes. In the same way God knows exactly when it’s time for you to land. God does not want you to crash-land.
The blessing of the Lord maketh rich, it does not add sorrow with it. Why do you want to be blessed and not live to enjoy it? You will live to enjoy God’s blessings. God was at work in Joseph’s life in Egypt just like He is at work in your own situation right now.
Finally, God perfected what He wanted and Joseph revealed himself to his brothers. They were amazed! He now sent them back to go tell his father that he was alive. And Jacob was revived when he heard that Joseph was alive. He wiped his tears, and sat up. The God you serve is alive. He is not in the grave. Death could not hold him. He died and rose up the third day. His name is Jesus. In Him we are victorious. In Him we have an assurance that all the promises will come to pass. “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20 KJV)
