Defining Moments
Romans 8:28 (NKJV)
Key Words in Romans 8:28

Know - oida- knowledge that comes from reflection. This type of knowledge stays with someone in whatever stage or season they are in currently.

All things work together- every moment works in collaboration

Good - value added (Seasons shape values)

Love - agapao- response to God’s Love

Purpose - greater reason than what the human mind can comprehend. Through His purpose He is revealed in our lives — His glory!
Defining Moments are:
- the point at which the essential character or nature of a person or group is revealed or identified
- often gift wrapped in disappointments, setbacks and rejection
- Able to shape our perceptions and influence our behaviors
#DefiningMoments start with a promise, developed through a process, highlighted through promotion, (in every season) confirmed by God’s provision, to reveal His purpose. #theoutletcc
STORY OF JOSEPH (Genesis 37, 39-42, 50)

Joseph's Dream (Genesis 37:5,9)

The purpose of Joseph's two dreams:
v7 - dream to save nations from physical famine
v9- dream to save Israel from spiritual extinction

- His brothers sell him into slavery to Midianites (Genesis 37:28)
- Midianites sell him to Potiphar in Egypt (Genesis 37:36)
- Potiphar entrusts Joseph to manage his entire household (Genesis 39:2-3)
- Joseph was called successful before the end of his story. (39:2)
- Potiphar’ s wife accuses Joseph of coming on to her and has him thrown in jail (39:20-21)
- The Lord showed him his faithful love (Gen. 39:21)
- In jail Joseph meets the king’s cup bearer and royal baker and interprets their dreams (Gen. 40:4-18)
- The cupbearer remembers Joseph.....2 years later! (Gen. 41:9)

- Pharoah made Joseph 2nd in command to only him (Gen. 41:40)
- Changed his name Zaphenath-peneah (41:45)

He marries and has two children—Manasseh (meaning ‘Forget’) and Ephraim (meaning ‘Twice Fruitful’). He feels that God has helped him forget his troubles and flourish in spite of them.
Reflection + Discussion

Do you live life with any regrets? Why or Why Not?

How has your value system progressed/regressed over the years?

What is one thing that you thought was important that you now see something else should take that place?

How can you practice looking for "God-moments" throughout your day?
