Learn to Practice God's Presence (2 of 2)
Dr. Adrian Rogers
Genesis 39

We're continuing the message that we began this
morning, how to make your dreams come true. I want us
in just a moment to look in Genesis chapter 39. When
you have it, however, just look up here and let me see
your faces for a moment. Let me recapitulate what
we've already said, that it would be a tragedy indeed
for you to be upon your death bed ready to die and to

is a God of plans. "The steps of a good man are
ordered by the Lord," and I wanted to give you five
ways to make your dream come true. The very first of
these is this, that you need therefore to dare to
