So this week, our episode has to do with you. Yes, it's all about you and it's all about your character. We know that in life. You will have troubles, God is far more interested in your character than it is. How comfortable you want your life to be. God is always with you working in the dark. So many times. The scripture says God was with Joseph and I love it. I love the fact that when I read Genesis chapter 37, all throughout the chapter and all throughout Joseph, the life. That was the reoccurring thing. God was with Joseph.
He Who Watches Over Israel. Never Slumbers, nor sleeps the Lord himself Watches Over. You, the Lord stand beside you, as your protective shade is what? Psalms 121, 4 through 5 staff is timing. The very events of your life. To everything about your life is time. God knows when he wants to do something where he wants to do it. Exactly how he wants to do it.
God has not abandoned you. He's not forgotten, you, he is working behind the scenes.
And commit the working all things together for your good, for those who love him. You can trust God, he's with you and the dark. And you know, God's plan is to have the right person in the right place for his right purposes. God's will is far more about, who you are than where you go and what you do.
The right person at the right time being used for God's glory. That's what happened in Joseph life.
So, Joseph interprets Pharaoh's dream.
He said your man's Majesty. It's going to get pretty bad around here. You will have seven years of plenty and 7 years of famine and it would be to your advantage to put the excess away during the years of plenty. I'll put it away in storage for the years of famine is Shore to come so that the nation Will Survive because it's comment.
That's exactly what Joseph interpreted Pharaoh's dream to me. And this is what, you know, God gave him as the Revelation to the King's dream. Of course. He has been having dreams and interpreting them. Since the age of 13, Joseph interpreted the dreams when he was in jail. He interpreted the dream of the cupbearer.
that he would be restored back into the palace in 3 days and he was
Where are the king? Had some dreams that needed interpretation?
And guess what the cop bear remembered how Joseph was so instrumental in his time in life is as during that time, while he was in jail, and he remembered him. He remembered his name and he was the one that recommended Joseph to the king. God will always set you up and he will allow your name to be called and he will use you for his glory.
The joke, it was brought into the palace. And that's when he began to use. The gifts that God has given him, the gift of interpretation of Dreams.
13 years had gone by when the cupbearer had gotten his training interpreted. And that was when it was God's timing for Joseph, to be introduced to the deed, the king. This was his timing for him to be in the palace. This was his timing for him to be used by God is such a powerful way. And the King's life.
Joseph. Never lost sight of the fact that God does have a better plan. Not only, does he have a better plan for his life. He also had a much better view from up. There were so many times in those 13 years that Joseph could have been limited by the little snapshots of things, going, bad and lost total. Hope that there was a loving God who had plans for his future. God sees the whole picture. He has the bigger canvas in his hat is mind. And what we are seeing is it's a little snapshot that God fits into the plan that he is loving me unfolding before our life. He does have a hope and a future for your life.
I'm going back to the story of Ferra and having his dream interpreted and the Revelation that Joseph gave him for that particular dream, the family, and no one, no other country had food, but Egypt and Joseph was in charge of all the food. Watch the setup. Isn't God. Just amazing how he not only uses you to become a part of the the crisis, but he uses you to become a part of the plan, the unfolding of his greater a plan for your life.
Guess who came to eat looking for food? Yep, you get it, right Joseph. Brother's the same brothers that threw him in the pit and left him for dead.
I didn't recognize him and they bow down before him.
Joseph was sent ahead of them. This was God's plan. It was gone that sent me here to support. Your life is what Joseph said to his brothers. God has been with me.
So that he would be in the right place.
At the right time to accomplish the plan of God. It was God who sent him? I had of them.
Today, I want you to know that there is a greater purpose for your life. No matter what obstacles or challenges come your way. There are part of the process. They're part of God's timing. They're part of God's implementation and there's they're part of God's X execution for his plan for your life.
For the greater purpose for Joseph, having been thrown in the pit and subsequently going to all of those difficult challenges in his life was to preserve the sons of Jacob. It was so that they would become the nation of Israel. For the purposes of God, for the birth of Jesus Christ for the Salvation of the world for us to be sitting right here forgiven and freed from all of our sins. It was crucial for Joseph to be on the throne that day. I so love it. I love it when God's plan comes together.
When we are having one of those days, like some of those days that Joseph had really rough bad. Oh my goodness. Life disrupted days. Remember remember that? God has a better View and a much deeper love for you and trust God and keep your eyes on him. However, he wants to use us. Our lives are in God's hands. Let God use you in this amazing life. It feels good to be known to know that. God hands are upon our lives and that he is the one ultimately ends in control of our future. We thank him for what he's doing behind the scenes and we thank him today for renewed. Hope that is the reason why I can say to you today, your future is
Radiant and promising.
