Joseph’s brothers were fed during the famine by God’s providence. Joseph tells his brothers that, “Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.” (Genesis 45:5) God was able to use sins committed by these brothers to save them from starving years later. If we look back in our lives, we can see times where God’s providence was working and we did not even know it. If we will follow Him and His word, we can live knowing that no matter what may happen to us, God is in control and He will take care of us.
