As we continue our study in Genesis 39, we’ll see how the biblical character, Joseph, went from the pit where his brothers placed him, all the way to the palace of Pharaoh. And Pastor Ford will explain that just like Joseph, we can’t get to the palace without first being in the pit. And that’s why most people never make it because they quit when it gets hard. They don’t understand that God is building them up for what He’s built for them.
