God will supply, but sometimes we just don’t understand the supplier! God uses different people at different times to meet different needs in your life.
God used the great Pharaoh of Egypt to feed the Hebrew children. When famine hit, God led His people down to Egypt and made Pharaoh feed them for 400 years. We have every right, as God’s children, to ask Him to supply our needs. However, we don’t have the right to dictate who God will use to meet your need.
When God wants to bless you, sometimes He’ll send a person, but if you’re too proud to accept their help, you won’t get it. Sometimes we limit God because we want him to work through people we know or like, but that may not be who God wants to use as His supplier.
God used Pharaoh because he’s not the kind of guy you’re apt to fall in love with. God doesn’t want you getting hooked on anybody but Him. He can bless you through the boss man, the taxman, the poor man, the rich man, or the man who means to hurt you!
It was betrayal by his brothers that eventually caused Joseph to become Prime Minister of Egypt. People will enter your life and people will leave it. Praise God when they come and praise Him when they go.
Always remind yourself, “If God blessed me before, He’ll do it again.” Never forget Egypt only became a problem when God’s people stayed there too long! Don’t lean on the arm of the flesh too long, or the instrument of your blessing can become an idol and a source of control. Have faith, God will always supply your needs.
