Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)
Chris Tomlin

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see


'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed


My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace


The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures


My chains are gone
I've been set free

My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace


The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine

God Of Wonders
Mac Powell

Lord of heaven and earth, Lord of all creation.

Lord of heaven and earth.

 

Lord of all creation, of water earth and sky.

The heavens are Your tabernacle,

Glory to the Lord on high.

 

God of wonders beyond our galaxy,

You are holy, holy.

The universe declares Your majesty,

You are holy, holy.

Lord of heaven and earth, Lord of heaven and earth.

 

Early in the morning, I will celebrate the light.

When I stumble in the darkness,

I will call Your name by night.

 

God of wonders beyond our galaxy,

You are holy, holy.

The universe declares Your majesty,

You are holy, holy.

 

Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth,

Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth,

Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth.

 

God of wonders beyond our galaxy,

You are holy, holy.

Precious Lord, reveal Your heart to me,

Father, holy, holy.

The universe declares Your majesty,

You are holy, holy.

 

Hallelujah to the Lord of heaven and earth....   

Scripture

Genesis 41:15-16
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I have had a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it. I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.” Joseph answered Pharaoh, “It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh a favorable answer.”

Genesis 41:50-52
Before the year of famine came, two sons were born to Joseph. Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, bore them to him. Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh. “For,” he said, “God has made me forget all my hardship and all my father's house.” The name of the second he called Ephraim, “For God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction.”

Genesis 42:36
And Jacob their father said to them, “You have bereaved me of my children: Joseph is no more, and Simeon is no more, and now you would take Benjamin. All this has come against me.”

Discussion Questions

1.  Which mindset do you demonstrate most days - that of Joseph or of Jacob?


2.  What can you do to shift your mindset and actions to be more like Joseph?


3.  How is God using your current circumstances to confront, call and claim you?
