Joseph departed from Hebron and headed to Shechem. He was going to check on his brothers and the family’s livestock. At Shechem he met a man wandering in the field, but not his family. The man told Joseph that his brethren and their livestock were in Dothan. Joseph continued his travels and met up with his family in Dothan, in accordance to the guidance of the stranger.

How interesting that God put a random person in Joseph’s life to help guide him! Some people in your life have been strategically placed by God to encourage you, to keep you accountable, or to be part of your everyday walk. Don’t take those people for granted. Be willing to hear, wisely discern and learn from them.

Genesis 37:12-17
