MEMORY VERSE (외울 말씀)
“I cannot do it,” Joseph replied to Pharaoh, “but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires.” Genesis 41:16
Have there been times in your life when all seemed impossible?
When things get hard?
Let’s look at Joseph’s life and be encouraged.
How many obstacles were between Joseph and the promise of the dreams he had as a youth?
- he was a slave,
- he was in prison,
- he was in a foreign country,
- the cup bearer had forgotten him,
- he only had one apparent "talent" from God, he was young...)
How long did it take God to overcome all those obstacles? (1 day).
We should remember Joseph when the odds seem against us in life.
God will still work his plan, and he can overcome all obstacles.
