God is executing his will, in the course of executing this will all others. Repent and stand some Styrofoam right his brothers show up about not recognizing him, but he recognized them, which meant he had to have been removed from all the bitterness and the pain in the stuff of the past so that he could serve God's purpose in their lives and later on he tells them. I think it's chapter 45. He tells them. Listen, don't do yourselves harm don't don't sweat the fact that now that you know who I am your thinking you're in trouble because I got all this power you in my country. Now I can do to you whatever I want.

He said don't sweat it. God sent me here or not you got most to get you to a place where you are so forgetful until the thing that's prominent in your mind is why God let them do what they did because he was setting you up to now do what you will be doing and that includes blessing people so you gotta get past some stuff that just layovers think all your enemies think all your bad circumstances. All the injustices I know I get laid off work better than the one that they In their let it go. If they kept the wrong file will suffer for that.

God bless you where he's taking you because God is not pastor Jenkins pulled up into a better store and ran into a man that Jenkins used the date when she was single and she spoke and what have you 100 came out the store got back in the car.

Pastor Jenkins said to her nature, glad you married me. Look how you live and look how you bless me and married me look where you live what you drive. Aren't you glad you married me.

She said honey if he had married me now be the pastor of First Baptist Church will be where you all see what is about me that's an ongoing dispute. They haven't settled. My point is, would you quit, sweat some of them said to them, injustices in the layoffs in the wrong and all, no new flight. Now heading toward God ordained destination you can afford to forget some things and some people in some situations.

He became forgetful and then finally he became fruitful look in verse 52 Genesis 41 it says the second son.

He named Ephraim and said it's because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering. I want to let somebody know that God wants to make you unrecognizable by getting you focused, making you forgetful and ultimately, then, that prepares you to be fruitful when you arrive at the place where God has preordained you should be equipped to become fruitful not how was Joseph two ways. First of all by having these two sons just got married and have a couple of kids he got married and had kids, according to God's purpose. Let me tell you something I want you as a kingdom citizen cannot assume that God doesn't have a specific purpose for every detail of your life. You are married and the kingdom of darkness so… Have a purpose that involves you having or not having children.

Your kingdom citizen everything about it because you serve a purposeful God, that God may have called up one season to open it up later closed it in one way so that you can adopt some God ordained care over here knows what God is up to you all know about everything get married and have a couple of kids. He had two sons who were destined to be part of the 12 tribes of Israel to understand that Jacob had 11 sons but after this season. When Jacob got to Egypt because his sons said Charles is alive. He's a big shot in Egypt that only present I got jealous as you can see all that they don't take the rest of our lives. So God is moving supernaturally and when Jacob, his father gets there as he's getting ready to die. He says you know what instead of the normal process. Would you be all of his sons are part of his destiny. Moving forward, and the inheritance and the legacy moving forward. He said Joseph I'm going to swap you for your two boys. It was God's purpose. So instead of 11 sons of Israel. There are 12 why because he swapped Joseph, who was his son.

He said instead of you. I'm little adopted two kids. That's an honorable thing for father to do in his culture. I'm going to bless you by making your son's prominent I will skip a generation ingesting you his other sons were on the other 10 sons of their but now instead of 11 would Joseph he says son I'm going to honor you and your faithfulness by adopting your two boys and Bay for purposes of my legacy will now become my sons, as it were. And so we now had the set up for what later became the 12 tribes of Israel. These were sons of destiny God has a purpose for everything that happens in your life play about everything will just take the job.

Pray about the job again me last week was a pastor I got an opportunity and I'm not sure what to do.

I say let's pray but I'll be praying about what you this week, next week to Dorset last week. I believe I took that job.

I'm in agreement with. Don't just take the money look good, pray to God said no natural coming up next.

Be sure to visit Pastor will Joseph never forgot God's promise for his purpose but he did forget about the past wounds he suffered at the hands of others, and that made all the difference is pastor Paul once again with the rest of today's message unrecognizable. No way he was going he just knew I had a dream from God when I was 17 and next thing you know he is in charge in the countries not even a citizen and his brothers are coming. Bowing to him and he moves his family from Canaan to Egypt and I he then Pharaoh gives him permission to provide for them. Take care your elderly daddy. No had no idea who Jehovah was. No idea what God was going to do the Messiah that was going to come into the family. I'm telling you eyes have not seen in the years haven't heard and it hasn't entered your heart what God has prepared for you in some areas of your life.

Quit trying to figure everything out and just realize that God wants to make you fruitful and here's what I love about it. He said God made me fruitful right well suffered see a lot of us want to be fruitful somewhere. No Gossett. I don't get as much glory removing you from all the trouble when all the people went off to get some God's glory is the key you there secular bear Barnard Colorado and then in clear and crisp when people are nice. You would show did not go on some with the old place was in the center of God's will and is ideal, not because of circumstances is ideal because though I'm there, the Lord is preparing a place for me a table for me and he'll do it in the presence of the economy in the presence of the layoffs in the presence of the folk working against you in the presence of your crazy family in the presence of the Lord blesses you believe Leavy got up every so well but don't look for greener pastures. God could very well be making you fruitful right where you suffer right where they said you'll never be anything right. What economist said this is not the place to be.

This is the least most desirable place to listen to the Lord.

Sometimes God will send his people to our troubled situation on preacher friend of mine set forth season the Lord had me going all these raggedy charges bad as they know how to be called all him calling me to preach, and do a few days and preach these and I was sick of him in their half sleep don't care about that one day I protested and said to God, keep going to the churches. He said because of the one day I wouldn't have any need for you to be.

I sent you to that dead place so you could plant seeds of life who know but that God sent you to your neighborhood crazier than focal. You gotta pray for you legal does not believe God might have you on purpose some family met some kids get somebody say God will sometimes inconvenience your life to get Emily straight because he is a purpose for them, but somebody's got to be faithful enough to be fruitful so that he can use them. There Joseph said look at this I'm having kids where suffered. I'm now helping the whole country where I suffered and now preserving a posterity in the earth on preserving my daddy's family right where I suffered on preserving the people who tried to destroy me right where they sent me to suffer fruitfulness is always fun, but it does accomplish the will of God and the good thing about it is when God does the right work in your heart you not even tripping anymore because it was late when he finally revealed himself. You know how you read the story.

When you get a chance, how he did a number of things that look shy stealing service when trying to precisely he was trying to get his daddy to to Egypt because he started to connect the dots and he started to realize you know what, I'm here on purpose. I'm here to be fruitful and so it's looks like he's toying with them for a while, but all he's trying to do is make sure that his family gets there and the day comes when he reveals himself and says I'm Joseph so forgetful that he has amnesia because look at what he says I'm Joseph one you sold member may member my coach all toll dipped in blood, the when went home telling daddy that I will get your member that, but there's no bitterness. You know you know that because of what he goes on to say he says now don't sweat it.

Don't trouble yourself. I know you're like oh we in trouble though: this is so not going to go well. I noted by ready to snitch on Joseph it'll go stand here and try to figure out all is all good. You didn't send me here God. He sent me here to be fruitful to preserve for my daddy a posterity in the earth, he sent you all did me wrong so God could do right by you. So you have let God put you in a place where if you want you to be a blessing to anybody you can bless him cause it's really not about you it's about him you know why we gotta be in a position to live that way because the only reason you say this because God did that for you got go to sent you to hell, do not pass go, do not collect $200 by the time you were two years old. You have been enough or good enough or eternal damnation. Now you said stealing cookies when he was young enough.

I know you know we had cookies crumbs right on your face, lying, cheating, stealing, young, selfish, self-centered, no two years old sinner is on the plane last night without two-year-old center I said then thought if he would mind for five minutes more in the seat next to me for five you are taken back to your world different than it was ever because we grew up in the days of well look good morning. Actions summary, you testified right now flashing back that him only a look unit December Japan's back in the day they let you go those auditors because if they heard Joel. They looked over there that look meant.

Don't make me get up if I have to get up you won't want to be there when I get there. We grew up in those days community policing in the church. Anybody could get you no fear of being taken to court.

Some real testify would be no fear will be taken to court. Your mom would get mad.

This is the Claxton had to get to the Claxton will grab you by one arm and wanting polite just grab you by anything they could grab and drag you out of church made you go on your friends laugh at you about the comeback if you know you cry, how would you be good enough alone to deserve eternal damnation. Why aren't you going to hell why you going to heaven when you have grace why you have joy when you have peace what he had a blessing to God because he looks beyond your fault and he saw your need that you didn't care about him. He cared about you, so it's no big thing. When I now am called to be so fruitful that sometimes he makes me care about folk care nothing about all I'm doing is giving God a little bit of a return on his big investment of love and grace in my life God's will make you unrecognized make you focused, forgetful, you know, one of the things God tells us over and over in Scripture is that we should forgive those who have wronged us. That's what he has done for us in, we should do the same for others it may sometimes seem impossible, but we have the power of the Holy Spirit to help.
