Plan B - Joseph

On Sunday Mark Sherratt continued a great teaching series at MKCC - Plan B - What do you do when God doesn't show up the way you expected him too.

This week Mark looked at the life of Joseph. Here are some takeaways from his message:

  • If anyone in the Bible knows about Plan B is is Joseph.
  • God is most powerfully present even when he feels apparently absent! 
  • When things are going crazy we often think, why has God abandoned us? The truth is that is when he is most powerfully present.
  • The process of becoming the person God wants you to be rarely goes from success to success to success.
  • Joseph may have been stripped of his coat but he was not stripped of his identity in God.
  • Joseph may have been abandoned by his family but he was not abandoned by God.
  • God is more interested in who you are becoming than where you are going
  • Joseph with no pastor, priest, church or life group chooses integrity when faced with the offer of adultery even when God seemed absent in his life.
  • In prison THE LORD WAS WITH Joseph. God is with us in every situation! 
  • Joseph learned to look for God in the circumstances he found himself in. And amazingly he found Him.
  • We all have to choose if we put our faith in what God does or who God is.
  • Put your trust in GOD's identity rather than HIS activity.
