Egypt’s use and obedience

After reflecting on the teaching on Joseph, I realise that Egypt was just there as a way to serve and preserve Jacobs sons (ie the nation of Israel), and it has really struck me that our attempts to do ANYTHING other than Gods devine will for us is futile!!!

Consider that the whole nation of Egypt was really only there to serve that one purpose, during the famine – to keep the nation of Israel alive!  If Joseph had have been disobedient then it wouldn’t have happened through him that Israel was saved!

Our attempts to get things done our way are absolutely futile and have no eternal value at all.  None at all!!  At least not in eternal perspective!!!
