Maintaining God’s Vantage Point
Would you navigate your life differently if you saw your circumstances and situations through God’s all-knowing vantage point versus your own limited perspective? While the waiting and unknowns of life can be difficult, when we trust God to fulfill His promises we experience more peace. In our final message in the “Vantage Point” series, we explore how Joseph is able to extend grace to His brothers and their families because of this trust in God.
Revenge or Reconciliation
Have you experienced a circumstance in your life where you wrestled with getting revenge instead of seeking reconciliation? As we continue in our “Vantage Point” series, we’ll explore how Joseph gave this brothers two tests to determine if they were truly repentant of their actions toward him. And we’ll see how God works through our circumstances to bring us to repentance and forgiveness.
Does God promise to fix our problems, orchestrating our whole life for our good? While this might be hard to imagine, it’s God’s promise to us. So, if you feel like there’s unfinished business in your life, have faith that God’s desire is for you to finish your life well.
Do you feel like you are stuck waiting for something? Is there a purpose in the waiting? In our next sermon in the series “Vantage Point,” we will see how Joseph waited actively and expectantly, instead of passively.
Has it been hard to remain hopeful in terrible circumstances? What is your reaction to setbacks? As we continue our series into the life of Joseph, we will think about these questions as we see how Joseph looked at his own situation.
What Will Become of Your Dream?
What was your outlook when a dream of yours had been ripped away from you? Is God still in control when your life takes an undesired turn? As we continue our series “Vantage Point”, we will see that no matter the current circumstance, God has a purpose for your life.
