TEEN LESSON: JOSEPH HAS A DREAM; Theme: LESSONS FROM JOSEPH
MEMORY VERSE: Habakkuk 2:3; For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal, and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay.
Do you have a vision or a goal for your future. Maybe you dream about getting your driver’s license and having a particular car. Maybe you think about going to collage or about having a career. Maybe you want to travel or have a family. Some of your dreams may be God preparing you for what is to come. God has a plan for people. He knows your future and He knows how to prepare you for it.
Joseph was one of the sons of Israel. He was like most other teenagers. But God had a special plan for him and began preparing him for that plan when Joseph was just a teenager.
Genesis 37; Read this chapter from the Bible. This chapter could be called JOSEPH IS BULLIED
Why did the brothers hate Joseph?
Do you think that Joseph might have been bragging when he told about his dreams?
How would you feel if you were Joseph?
How would you feel if you were Joseph’s brothers?
How would you feel if you were Joseph’s father?
But Joseph’s life took a big turn at this time. He went from being the favorite son to being a slave. God had a plan for him though! The dreams he had were prophetic. God would bring his dreams to fulfillment even though no one could foresee what was to come in their future.
Sometimes God may show you a vision or an idea of what He has planned for you and it might seem impossible at the time. If you share these ideas you might be called a dreamer like Joseph. You might even be bullied for it. But if you trust God with your future, He will bring about His plan for you.
