Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture/Principles are Aims for each Division – a truth about God, a truth about man, a truth about God’s relationship to man):

1.Joseph goes from Potiphar to Prison (Gen 39:1-23)

Principle:  God is with His people wherever we go.

2.Joseph gives God’s interpretations of the cupbearer’s and baker’s dreams (Gen 40:1-23)

Principle:  God always keeps His promises, though people sometimes forget to keep theirs.


Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure showing exactly where you are in Scripture):

Potiphar imprisons Joseph where he interprets cupbearer’s and baker’s dreams.


Aim (“To Cause My Audience To…” Know, See, Learn, Understand, etc.):

TCMAT Wherever God’s people go, He is with them, bringing blessing in the midst of suffering.


Application (not yes or no question.  Meant to bring about heart change):

1.How has your faith grown as you’ve experienced God’s presence and blessing during times of suffering?

2.How does knowing God is with you in your suffering help you to wait patiently on His timing for deliverance?


The Big Idea (author’s main purpose in writing; the one thing all the other things in the passage is about; if you couldn’t talk about it, you would still understand the passage is trying to convey this):

God blesses His people with His presence.
