Genesis 43: The Second Journey to Egypt

There are no miracles or supernatural occurrences in this chapter. God is an observer in this narrative but is not an influencer. He is watching how the characters react and the decisions they make without his intervention.

I look very carefully in each chapter for evidence of the miraculous, not to try to explain supernatural away, but to identify the touch of God to know his power and nature.

Joseph allowed himself to feel and be vulnerable, albeit he hid away so no one could see him week, but he did not prevent his emotion – he just composed himself before others.
