  • But the Lord knew, and He knows what trials are in your future too. These verses were for Joseph and Oliver, and they are for us, too.
  • How might Joseph and Oliver have felt after hearing these words? What do you find in these verses that helps you trust the Lord?
  • What does it mean to “look unto [Christ] in every thought”?
