GEN 45:4 Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Come close to me.” When they had done so, he said, “I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you. For two years now there has been famine in the land, and for the next five years there will be no plowing and reaping. But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance.[a]
When changing a diaper I always get the new diaper out and unfold it before I even start to take the poopie diaper off. I get the diaper ready so that as soon as the poop is cleaned off with the 24 wipes I use (so I don’t get green poop on my hand) I can cover their little bums quickly and lessen my chance of getting peed on! When taking a shower, I turn the water on for about 17 minutes too long before I’m even ready to jump in so that the water is the right temperature. Now days we can even turn our heater on from our phones when we leave the grocery store to make sure we are warm and toasty when we get home. In this same manner God has already sent the thing you need ahead of you. If you need favor, He’s taken care of it! If you need energy, He’s got it! If you need financial wisdom/breakthrough, He has already sent your miracle ahead of you!
Even these JERK guys who sold their brother into slavery had God prepare a way for them to live and not starve to death.Even these JERK guys who sold their brother into slavery were incredibly blessed when God prepared a way for them to live and not starve to death. God prepared years and years ahead of the drought for theses brothers to have plenty of food and water even when the area around them had nothing! If God still did the prep work for even these idiot brothers, He’ll do it for me! The pressure is off of all of us! The stress most moms feel of, “how in the world am I going to make this work?” is off of our shoulders. God prepares a solution before we even know there is a problem. Imagine having someone come in and do all your meal prep… How easy would making the right choices be if we already had the nutritious food prepared in our fridge? Well, we follow a God who does our prep work for us! How much easier following Gods plan for our life is, knowing that He’s got everything we will ever need prepared already!
Keep walking towards Him. Keep your focus on the God of Miracles! Keep your heart steady by knowing that God is prepared! Trust me, He doesn’t want to get peed on any more than I do when changing diapers. He knows what we are capable of on our own and He knows we will need His preparation otherwise we’d pee all over ourselves (metaphorically) and it’d be gross! He’s Prepared!
