"Success is Sometimes Delayed but Not Denied"

Genesis 39

Additional Reading: Genesis 37, 40-50

INTRODUCTION:

On Sunday Pastor Foster preached a powerful sermon entitled “Denied But Still Blessed.” I thought this would be a good lead way into our lesson for tonight.  He stated in his introduction that God puts us on pause for three reasons; (1) to perfect us, (2) to help us understand his purpose and (3) to teach us patience. We can apply these same principles to our lesson today which centers around the life of Joseph. The narrative of Joseph’s life begins in chapter 37 of Genesis and continues from chapters 39-50. In this extensive narrative, we will find that Joseph’s dreams were denied by his brothers and father and his success was delayed by many circumstances. We will also discover that even with the many stumbling blocks in Joseph’s path, he was still blessed by God.

In our text today, we will soon discover that no matter what obstacles were put in Joseph’s path, the Lord was always with him. His success was delayed for many years but ultimately he would not be denied the blessings God had in store for him and his nation. It was through Joseph’s success and his rise to prominence in Egypt that saved not only his family but preserved the whole nation of Israel.
