Lost and Found [Life of Joseph, part 3]

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church we continued our series “The Life of Joseph: God’s Sovereignty in Our Suffering” by looking at Joseph’s exaltation from suffering in Genesis 40-41.  A significant part of this message ended up being about waiting on God in the midst of our suffering.

You can view the message video and sermon outline for this message below. You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast. Also, join in with our daily devotional that accompanies this series during Lent.
