God providentially placed Joseph in Egypt to save the Israelites from extinction. And He has placed you at this very point in history, in the certain location you are, for the very same reason…for every single event in our lives is ordained by God. For just as God watched over the Israelites to preserve them and to accomplish His divine plan and purpose…He watches over us. The Israelites had found themselves in marginal and tenuous situations before…places that the end had seemed near…but God’s grace always preserved the faithful few from which the Messiah would come…and in doing so redemption would be accomplished. They were always restored on the basis of God’s mercy and the promises of the Abrahamic Covenant. Their survival never due to some enemies’ weaknesses but solely on God’s sovereign power. Where you find yourself today is not out of luck, fate or accident but rather out of God’s providence to preserve His plan for your life.
