Joseph: The Favored Son

November 4, 2018

Text: Genesis 35:22b – 50:26

 

               Joseph’s Difficult Days

Sibling rivalry, jealousy and hatred

Sold into slavery, bought by Potiphar

 Falsely accused and sent to prison

 Forgotten and forsaken in prison

 

               Joseph is Exalted

Released from prison to interpret Pharaoh’s dream

Assigned responsibility to prepare the land for famine

Used by God to rescue and preserve his family

 

               Key Truths

                              We cannot control circumstances,

                                but we can choose our response.

                                                (Genesis 45:1-6)

                                       CHOOSE THANKFULNESS
 

                              No one can steal your character,

                               but you can choose to forsake it.

                              `              (Genesis 39:7-12)

                                             REMAIN FAITHFUL

 

                              God Is sovereignly in control

                                of all our circumstances.

                                (Genesis 45:7-8 & 50:20)

                                             TRUST HIM

 

                             Negative circumstances do not
                                reflect a lack of God’s love,

                                or a loss of God’s purposes.

                                             BE PATIENT
