THE LORD WAS WITH JOSEPH.
No doubt there have been, or will be, times in your life when your circumstances lead you to wonder if God is there, if He cares, and if things are slipping out of His control. Surely similar thoughts ran through Joseph’s mind as he suffered through betrayal, false accusations, and imprisonment. But throughout his story, we are constantly reminded of God’s faithfulness. No matter what we walk through, God’s presence is constant, His provision is enough, and His purposes are unstoppable.

In this 8-session video-based Bible study from Kelly Minter, you will:

  • encounter the trustworthy sovereignty of God.
  • learn to trust God’s purposes when life doesn’t make sense.
  • recognize how God is working in your waiting.
  • rest in the sufficiency of God’s presence in every circumstance.
We hope you will join us!
