  • Colonel Harland Sanders Was 65 When He Launched Kentucky Fried Chicken It starts with him dropping out of school in the sixth grade, not because he was lazy, but because he had to take care of his younger brothers. He got a social security check for only $105 and was mad. Instead of complaining he did something about it. He thought restaurant owners would love his fried chicken recipe, use it, sales would increase, and he’d get a percentage of it. He drove around the country knocking on doors, sleeping in his car, wearing his white suit. Do you know how many times people  said no  till he got one yes?  1009 times!

    2. 2. Joseph the Dreamer
    3. 3. 1. There are things that are destined to be yours even if you don’t seek or ask for it.
    4. 4. 5  Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. 6  He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had: 7  We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.” 8  His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said. 9  Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. “Listen,” he said, “I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.” 10  When he told his father as well as his brothers, his father rebuked him and said, “What is this dream you had? Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow down to the ground before you?” 11  His brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept the matter in mind. Gen. 37
    5. 5. 25  As they sat down to eat their meal, they looked up and saw a caravan of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead. Their camels were loaded with spices, balm and myrrh, and they were on their way to take them down to Egypt. 26  Judah said to his brothers, “What will we gain if we kill our brother and cover up his blood? 27  Come, let’s sell him to the Ishmaelites and not lay our hands on him; after all, he is our brother, our own flesh and blood.” His brothers agreed. 28  So when the Midianite merchants came by, his brothers pulled Joseph up out of the cistern and sold him for twenty shekels[b] of silver to the Ishmaelites, who took him to Egypt.
    6. 6. 2  The LORD was with Joseph so that he prospered, and  he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. 3  When his  master saw that the LORD was with him and that  the LORD gave him success in everything he did, 4  Joseph  found favor in his eyes and became his attendant.  Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he  entrusted to his care everything he owned. 5  From the time  he put him in charge of his household and of all that he  owned, the LORD blessed the household of the Egyptian  because of Joseph. The blessing of the LORD was on  everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the  field. 6  So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s  care; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself  with anything except the food he ate.
    7. 7. 2. The lowest points in our life are actually launching pads to God’s greatest promotion.
    8. 8. Nick Vujicic
    9. 9. “If I fail, I try again, and again, and again. If YOU fail, are you going to try again? The human spirit can handle much worse than we realize. It matters HOW you are going to FINISH. Are you going to finish strong?”
    10. 10. 13  When she saw that he had left his cloak in her  hand and had run out of the house, 14  she called  her household servants. “Look,” she said to them,  “this Hebrew has been brought to us to make  sport of us! He came in here to sleep with me, but  I screamed. 15  When he heard me scream for  help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of  the house.”
    11. 11. But while Joseph was there in the  prison, 21  the LORD was with him; he showed  him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes  of the prison warden. 22  So the warden put  Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison,  and he was made responsible for all that was  done there. 23  The warden paid no attention to  anything under Joseph’s care, because  the LORD was with Joseph and gave him  success in whatever he did.
    12. 12. 3. God is a god of “unexpected” surprises and unmerited favors.
    13. 13. 23  The chief cupbearer, however, did not remember Joseph; he forgot him.
    14. 14. 4. Our present circumstances will tell who we are and who we become.
    15. 15. 39  Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you. 40  You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you.”
    16. 16. 41  So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt.”42  Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph’s finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. 43  He had him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command,[b] and people shouted before him, “Make way[c] !”Thus he put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt.
    17. 17. -represents honor, authority, and personal guarantee of the king
    18. 18. 5. Do not expect God to do all your expectations. Expect God to do the unexpected. Expect to see good success beyond your present circumstances. Stop looking at your failures and stop allowing them to discourage you. “Dream. Believe. Survive.”
    19. 19. Colonel Harland Sanders “If you’re a dreamer, then do it and back up your dreams.”
    20. 20. 45 Then Joseph could no longer control himself before all his attendants, and he cried out, “Have everyone leave my presence!” So there was no one with Joseph when he made himself known to his brothers. 2  And he wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard him, and Pharaoh’s household heard about it.
    21. 21. 4  Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Come close to me.” When they had done so, he said, “I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! 5  And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you. 8  “So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt. 9  Now hurry back to my father and say to him, ‘This is what your son Joseph says: God has made me lord of all Egypt. Come down to me; don’t delay. 10  You shall live in the region of Goshen and be near me—you, your children and grandchildren, your flocks and herds, and all you have. 11  I will provide for you there, because five years of famine are still to come.
    22. 22. 1  So Joseph settled his father and his brothers in Egypt and gave them property in the best part of the land, the district of Rameses, as Pharaoh directed. Gen. 47:11
    23. 23. 6. Forgive. Forgive. Forgive…, Forget and Move on.
    24. 24. 7. “…though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again…” Proverbs 24:16, NIV
    25. 25. DREAM for a GOOD SUCCESS and JUST DO IT. There is no success without failure.
