Things Are Not Always As They Seem

Scripture: Genesis 41
Sermon Series: Beginnings

Joseph helped Egypt survive through the famine that devastated the land for seven years. And he would not have been able to do so had it not been for circumstances most of us would call tragic. But as AW Tozer said, “It is doubtful God can bless a man richly until he has hurt him deeply.” It may have seemed Joseph was facing certain death in prison, but he was certainly more than he seemed. Interpreting the dreams of his fellow prisoners, men who served under Pharaoh, and eventually Pharaoh himself, he became the second most powerful man in Egypt.
