"So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God.........." (Gen. 45:8)
God sees the end from the beginning. He has the unique vantage point of an overview. He can see beyond the doubts, insecurities and frustrations of our lives. We see things as they appear; He sees things as they truly are!
Joseph concluded after many years in Pharoah's court that God had allowed the hurt, the harm, the imprisonment. That in the wise providence of God Joseph became a man of great character. Only God could have such an overview.
I submit to you that we can trust our lives to Him. That if sickness comes He will bring us ultimate healing; that if financial disaster strikes He will provide every need; that if loss of a loved one occurs He will fill the void. We can say with Joseph, "but God." But God sees the end from the beginning; but God knows where the turn in the road is; but God sees how things will work out and how it will be best for us! Let us rely on His overview!
Pray as if everything depends on God.
