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 Interprets Pharaoh’s Dream (Gen 41:1-32)

Principle:  God gives gifts and abilities to put people where He wants them.

2.Joseph in Charge of Egypt (Gen 41:33-57)

Principle:  God is sovereign over every person He places in authority.

3.Joseph’s Brothers Buy Grain in Egypt and Simeon is Left Behind (Gen 42:1-38)

Principle:  God’s plan is to prosper, not harm, to give hope and a future.


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

Joseph interprets Pharaoh’s dream, serves Egypt and sells brothers grain.


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

TCMATK God places every person in every position of authority for His glory and purpose.


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

1.How has your faith grown as you’ve waited for God’s plan to be realized in your life?

2.How does knowing God is sovereign over every authority help you trust His plan (and the state of the world right now)?

3.How does knowing God’s plans are to prosper His people help you to endure painful or frightening circumstances?


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 raises (His) people up to fulfill His plan.
