Good morning from beautiful Schroon Lake where we expect blue skies, a light breeze, with highs in the mid-70s. A perfect day to be at Word of Life Island.
This week I’ve had the honor of speaking to 500 teens every morning in the Bible hour. Each day we’ve tackled a key question from the life of Joseph. Here they are so far:
Monday: Do you know why you were born?
Tuesday: Do you know who you are?
Wednesday: Are you willing to wait for God?
Today we go to the heart of the matter:
Thursday: How big is your God?
So many problems start right here. We struggle in hard times because our God is too small. It’s all a matter of perspective.
When God is big, your problems seem small.
When God is small, your problems seem big.
Good theology solves a lot of problems.
So this morning we’re going to see the greatness of God as Joseph is promoted from the pit to the palace in Genesis 41. We’ll look at 7 signs of the sovereignty of God. Then I’m going to give the students a 21-day prayer challenge.
Would you pray with me that the students will “trade in” their little God for the big God of the Bible?
