When Will Your Ship Come In? by Rick Ferguson

WHEN WILL YOUR SHIP COME IN?
Genesis 41:1-16, 25-46

Have you come here today wondering when your
ship will come in? The fact of the matter is that
most of us spend a good deal of our lives waiting for

us to prosperity.
we wait for that wonderful moment of discovery when
someone influential will recognize our talents,

forward to. In fact, whenever a person feels as
though he/she has nothing to look forward to he is in
serious spiritual, psychological and eventually
physical trouble.

care if you've been told that you will die tomorrow,
you still have plenty to look forward to!

Today I want us to t study the life of
a young Hebrew man who was a spiritual giant: His
name was Joseph.

Joseph had been told by God that he would be a great
