Did you know that God has a dream for you?
One of my favorite stories in the Bible is the story of Joseph. Joseph was the beloved and favored son of Jacob and Rachel who lived in the land of Canaan with his 10 older half-brothers and one younger brother.
And Joseph was a dreamer.
God had plans to use Joseph mightily for His Glory and gave Joseph two dreams suggesting that one day his brothers would bow down before him. Already envious of Joseph’s favor with their father, as made evident by a gift of a “coat of many colors”, his older brothers instituted a plan for his demise.
God’s intervention through his brother Rueben allowed Joseph to be sold into slavery where the next years were spent being humbled by circumstances, such as prison, yet favored and prepared for His ultimate calling to save God’s chosen people.
In the end, God positioned Joseph with the “keys to the kingdom” and he saved his family and God’s people from famine through his planned provisions and preparation. This came through the interpretation of yet another dream.
You see, God is always dreaming.
And did you know that God’s dream has never changed? God still has a dream to save His people and He wants to use you to help fulfill that dream! Your circumstances today do not determine your destiny! Your destiny is a foregone conclusion! Your calling is irrevocable! And His plans for you are oh so GOOD!
So my challenge to you today is to begin to dream God’s dream for you! To take your eyes off of your current circumstances and focus your gaze on the One who created you for His glory. Because, my friend, God has always had and always will have, a dream for you! 🙂
