Joseph: The Favored Son

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
