From the Pit to the Palace
God has a unique plan for all His children. It is His desire that all of us recieve not only His free gift of life but prosperity and abundant living. We must be aware that there are times that we may fall in pit situations. Genesis 37:23 they stripped him of his coat..... often times we are stripped by others because of what others may think of us. It does not matter how low you are God will see you thru.
Your trails and trouble may cause you to be in a pit but it is your praise that will get you out of it. It was Reuben who tried to save Josph. he stop the the slaying but not the starving. Judah stop the starving but not the selling. There are times that we must stand up to those who try to oppress us and others..........ect.
! I. YOUR LET DOWNS MAY BE YOUR WAY UP
Just because you are down today does not mean you will be down tomorrow. We should never shy away from trails that come in our lives for it is the trail and tribulations of life that strengthens you. Our strength and joy comes in trail moments because God reveals Himself to us thru our faith in believing that He will see us through..........ect
II. WE SHOW THE IMAGE OF GOD'S GOODNESS: VS 23
No matter what you go thru serve the Lord with joy. Go thru your trails with joy. Because we know the Lord we should always be assured that He will Always bring us thru. For that alone we should go thru our troubles showing our faith and trust in God.......ect.
III. THE LORD WILL DO AMAZING THINGS;
In spite of everything Joseph went thru he found out as he trusted that God will provide. If we continue to stand thru adversity, overcome struggles, resist evil, we will find out that in our lives God will do amazing things..........ect
