How Jesus responds: 1 Peter 2:23
How do we?

Joseph was accused of sin, thrown in prison, used, and forgotten.

  • People may forget you, but God doesn’t.
  • People may abandon you, but God has made you part of the family.
  • People may fail you, but God never does.

  1. The Dream is bigger than you think it is.

John 15:5

Recognize that it’s all up to God 

  1. Not you – Genesis 41:16
  2. Not anyone else – Genesis 50:20

Don’t Give Up. The dream is still alive.

  • Don’t get too comfortable.
  • Don’t assume you’ve arrived.
  • Don’t miss what He’s doing now.
