You rob yourself of rest and peace when you turn to other people for support ahead of the Lord. Don’t forget who you are. You are not identified by an earthly bloodline; you are a child of God, adopted by the Blood of Christ into the kingdom that cannot be shaken. Whether your loved ones rise to your aid or not, the Lord is with you, and He doesn't need anyone's help to bring about His will.
Years later, when Joseph had been made a ruler in Egypt, he had grown in wisdom, experience, and Godliness. When his brothers arrived in Egypt, Joseph no longer had need to say, “Look at me! I am chosen!” He didn’t have to say it; his royal station spoke for him. He had been humbled through slavery, and so when he was elevated to royal status he remained free of pride. Most importantly, he gave God the glory.
The Lord is our vindicator against the injustices we face. If we can humbly refrain from taking matters into our own hands, we will find vindication when God brings his promises to fruition. Only the Lord can create humility in the hearts of those who have judged us, because He works through circumstances we could not have created for ourselves.
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord (Psalm 27:14).
