ANSWER TO THE BIBLE QUIZ 2

The answer to the bible quiz is "JOSEPH". That was very simple. 

A very big "THANK YOU" to everyone who participated in the quiz. Those who used the comment box and those who just whispered the answer and moved on with their daily activity. 

LESSON FROM THE LIFE OF JOSEPH.
Be not dismayed whatever life throws at you, God will always take care of you (if and only if you are faithful to Him).

What Joseph faced is similar to what many Christians faces today;
- we all have the promises of God (just like Joseph had the dreams).
- Even though we know the thoughts of God towards us are thoughts of good toward an expected end, yet we are faced with lots of trials and obstacles, most of which threaten our faith. Joseph was also faced with such obstacles from his brothers, at portiphar's house and in prison, yet he did not lose faith. If Joseph survived it, we also can survive what we are goin through right now.
- Joseph knew he will be great (from his dreams and interpretations) but he didn't know how he will become great or how powerful his greatness will be, he totally submit himself to God to drive his life.....no complaints was recorded from what He passed through before he became great. The same is expected of us. Do not try to Help God. Let God completely have His ways in our lives (no matter what our situation may be), He will give us testimonies.
- Finally, we all need to have a heart of forgiveness. Joseph forgave his bothers, he embraced those who took him away from the father's love and made him a slave for just 20 shekel of silver. He established them in his kingdom in a country where he was once a slave.

The above points were just few from the so many lessons we can learn from the life of Joseph. Read Genesis chapter 37 to chapter 47.

God bless you and have a great day.
