God is With Us
Genesis: Ordering Chaos
Scripture/Text: Genesis 39-40; It’s wise to develop a set of principles to live by. But if it's just our own strength under those principles, then sooner or later, life will bring us a trial, or a trouble, or a temptation that’ll cause us to compromise – or even fail – in our walk with God. In Genesis 39 and 40, the life of Joseph shows us that the foundation of any successful set of principles is knowing that God is with us. Knowing that God was with him is what carried Joseph through the trials in his life. And knowing that God is with us will do the same as we face the trials in our own lives.
