12/4/16-Rising from Wreckage of Shattered Dreams

Rising from the Wreckage of Shattered Dreams. (Matt:18-25)

Shattered dreams…..
•   Joseph was BLIND to the fact God was at work behind the scenes of his shattered dreams
•   God’s plans for Joseph and for us are always BEST, even when they hurt us deeply.

The response……..
•   Joseph righteously respond out of LOVE and compassion.
>The times when life goes wrong from our perspective is the time when we can see our TRUE selves.
>Anyone can rejoice when life is good, but it takes a CONSECRATED life when life falls apart.
•   How we respond to those who cause hurt is an indicator of the DEPTH of our spiritual walk.

The lessons…….
•   When dreams are shattered and hopes are dashed, TRUST the truth that God is in control and will take care of His children.
•   It is from the wreckage of the greatest hurts that God often builds for us the greatest BLESSINGS.

The demonstration of true faith……
•   Respond trusting God even when you or other do not totally UNDERSTAND.
•   Willingly puts aside your own DESIRES to do the will of God which is always best.

The blessing
•   What you think is the worst thing that has ever happened to you will often turn out to be your GREATEST blessing.
