Stuck, "From the Pit to the Prison" Day 1

Read Genesis 37:12-36

Joseph's dreams got him thrown into a pit by his jealous brothers. He was stuck where he could not go on any further. Pits force us to look up rather than inward or around. Joseph could not rely on himself, his family connections, his money or wealth, his looks, his charm, his networks, or his intelligence in this dire situation. He could only call upon the LORD to get him out of a big-time jam. In the same way we can get to a point in our own lives where all of our natural gifts and abilities prove to be worthless and vain. We cannot rely upon our own strength in times like these. Rather we should look to God, who is our ever present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1).

[Psalms 121:1-2 ESV] 1 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? 2 My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

*Life Point* Look to God and His Word instead of yourself or your friends for help.
