Everything is Planned Accordingly

Written by mestuart, 20/12/2018

When Yaakov crossed his hands to bless Menashe and Ephraim, Yosef intervened to remind his father who was the eldest. Yaakov reaffirmed Yosef that he knew, and that Menashe will also be great.

In life, we always have expectations and when things don’t work out the way we thought they would, we get upset and forget that everything happens exactly the way it’s supposed to. Yosef thought that his children were supposed to be blessed a certain way, but was reminded by Yaakov that this wasn’t the case. Additionally by Yosef's brothers- after revealing himself, Yosef had to remind them that HaShem planned for him to be sent down and it wasn’t their fault. 


Towards to the end of the Parsha, Yosef explicitly tells them this idea. The brothers, beng scared of Yosef hating them now that their father passed away, asks Yosef to not hate them because of they have done. Following their request, they insist on being Yosef’s slaves. He responds by saying, “Am I G-d? Although you have intended me hard, it is for the good.”

 

HaShem knows everything and has a plan for everything to happen. The more we believe and trust Him, the less stressed and more comfortable our lives will be.
