George W. Truett defined success as “the ability to find the will of God for your life and to do it.” As you embark on a new chapter of your life, you will likely meet three great enemies to success. Joseph found ways to overcome those enemies.
I. When tempted to discouragement (vv. 1-6)
Face God-allowed difficulties.
II. When tempted to diversion (vv. 7-18)
Flee godless desires.
III. When tempted to doubt (vv.19-23)
Follow your God-given dreams.
Get your dream or your direction in life from God. Make sure it is from Him and then follow it so that it may be said of you, "that the Lord was with you and you became a successful person!"
