Genesis 40-41: The Bigger Picture

At times we are tempted to wish we were in someone else’s position in life. However, the Lord has placed each of us in a set of unique situations that culminate in accomplishing his will for our lives. This week we look at Genesis, chapters 40 and 41 to see how the trials that Joseph endured helped grow him in his ability to accomplish God’s will.

Genesis 39: The Prospering Servant

Joseph was prospered by God because he realized that in any and every circumstance he was doing the work that his extremely generous master had given him to do. Sometimes God puts us in difficult situations and expects us to faithfully follow His lead. This week we see in Genesis, chapter 39 how Jospeh responds to the difficult situation God has allowed him to go through.

Joseph the Dreamer: Genesis 37-38

Often we choose to do our own thing rather than follow what God desires for us. This week we look at Genesis chapters 37 and 38 to see that God can work through even the worst of situations and use them for the good of the Kingdom.

Getting a Grip on God

What is your biggest fear in life? When you are gripped in life by those fears that own you, what will you do? Will you put your trust in the Lord? This week we take a look at the story of Jacob returning to his home and how he wrestled with God to face his biggest fear.

A Mess God Can Bless
