How does God want us to respond when our faith is stretched to the limit? In this story, we find Joseph lifted out of the pit and into the position of second in command of Egypt. The sovereignty of God is the central message of the story of Joseph; it teaches us why we can trust God through our own challenges. There are three characteristics of God’s sovereignty evident in this story: God’s sovereignty is an exhaustive sovereignty, it is a promise-keeping sovereignty, and His sovereignty is always good for His people. Because of this, how are we to respond? God wants His people to respond with delightful trust in His sovereignty.


Genesis 41
