“When he summoned a famine on the land and broke all supply of bread, he had sent a man ahead of them, Joseph, who was sold as a slave.” So we should put out of our minds the thought that God simply foresaw a famine happening on its own, or happening by Satan. God summoned the famine. And God prepared the deliverance. And he did it through a spectacular sin.
