God Meant It For Good by Rick Ferguson


GENESIS 50: 14-21

As we come to the closing verses of the first
and foundational book of the Bible, we read what may
be some of the most profound verses in all the
Bible. We come to an incident in which the true
heart and character of Joseph is revealed. And I
think some how this incident also reflects the
heart and character of God Almighty.

We are going to see today that God really is
in absolute supreme control of this universe and
human history.

(l) The book of Genesis opens revealing to
us that God is the Creator of all.

(2) The book of Genesis closes revealing to
us that God is the Controller of all.
Before I read this mornings' text, I want to
give you a wonderful use of scripture that
parallels the incident we are about to read in
Genesis. It is a verse, a promise that has
sustained and strengthened me through many
discouraging and frightening moments in life.

Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work
together for good to them who love
God, to them who are the called
according to His purpose."

Do you believe that?

it for evil
(4) Your friends and family may have abandoned you
intending it for evil


TEXT: GENESIS 50:11-21

I think one of the most moving stories I have
ever heard is the personal testimony of Chuck Colson,
former top-aid to President Richard Nixon. He went
