Genesis 42:1–5 (ESV)

Joseph’s Brothers Go to Egypt

42 When Jacob learned that there was grain for sale in Egypt, he said to his sons, “Why do you look at one another?” And he said, “Behold, I have heard that there is grain for sale in Egypt. Go down and buy grain for us there, that we may live and not die.” So ten of Joseph’s brothers went down to buy grain in Egypt. But Jacob did not send Benjamin, Joseph’s brother, with his brothers, for he feared that harm might happen to him. Thus the sons of Israel came to buy among the others who came, for the famine was in the land of Canaan.

 

Now, on the home front, Jacob is running out of grain and has heard that there is grain for sale in Egypt.  So, Jacob sends Joseph’s brothers to buy grain and bring it back home.  This is a strange twist that could have never been foreseen.  Joseph’s brothers head to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph!  The Lord works in mysterious ways.

 

I pray: O Lord, when I think I’m in control… things fall apart.  Help me to acknowledge that You are in control and help me to trust You and your ways.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
