Genesis 41:37-44
Joseph’s suggestions were well received by Pharaoh and his officials. So Pharaoh asked his officials, “Can we find anyone else like this man so obviously filled with the spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has revealed the meaning of the dreams to you, clearly no one else is as intelligent or wise as you are. You will be in charge of my court, and all my people will take orders from you. Only I, sitting on my throne, will have a rank higher than yours.” Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the entire land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh removed his signet ring from his hand and placed it on Joseph’s finger. He dressed him in fine linen clothing and hung a gold chain around his neck. Then he had Joseph ride in the chariot reserved for his second-in-command. And wherever Joseph went, the command was shouted, “Kneel down!” So Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of all Egypt. And Pharaoh said to him, “I am Pharaoh, but no one will lift a hand or foot in the entire land of Egypt without your approval.” (NIV)
Life of Joseph
• Sold into slavery by his brothers.
• Cast into a dungeon to rot there for the rest of his life
• Through a gift God gave him, by interpreting dreams, he winds up in the courts of Pharaoh of Egypt.
We have no claim in the Kingdom of God except that which God gives us.
Joseph Status Changed
• It wasn’t because of who Joseph was.
• It was because of who Pharaoh was.
• Pharaoh changed Joseph’s status.
Our Status Changed
• It was because God pulled us out of the dungeon that was surrounding our life.
• He set us free from the things that had us bound.
• He gave us the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
God is greater than anything you have experienced in life.
Luke 10:19
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (KJV)
Mark 11:23
I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. (NLT)
Philippians 2:10-11
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (NLT)
Jesus is Greater
• Nothing can stand against the name of Jesus!
• At the name of Jesus demons tremble! Diseases flee! Blind eyes open! The devil runs!
• You and I have been given the name of Jesus! It’s our ring of authority
• Joseph never forgot where the real powers lie.
• We need to remember who holds the real power.
• The only way to make a Christian powerless is to take away his belief in the power of Jesus.
Romans 6:14
For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. (NKJV)

• Grace isn’t so you can sin and get away with it.
• Grace is the power to keep sin out of your life and keep it from condemning you.
The power of Christ in you is greater than your past!
Matthew 18:18-19
Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. (NKJV)
What are you doing with the power of Jesus in you?
