Dream Believer

When it comes to dreams, Joseph teaches us three important principles. For ‘…he dreamed still another dream…’ Genesis 37:9

1. Keep Your Dream Alive

When you are given a dream it is quite normal for the dream to be tested, and for the life of the dream to be challenged. That is the nature of having a dream. But when it seems that your dream is gasping its last breath, keep believing God. For at that very point you will be closer to giving birth to your dream than you’ve ever been before.

2. Dream Again, Only Bigger

Joseph dreamed a second dream, an even bigger one. ‘…this time the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me…’ Genesis 37:9. If you’ve abandoned your dream because of discouragement, rise up and reclaim it. If you’ve already fulfilled it, ask God for a bigger one. You say, ‘But the challenge looks too big for me.’ Its not too big for God. you’ll never out-dream Him. In His Word He asks, ‘Is anything too hard for the Lord?’ Genesis 18:14. You may die with your dream on the drawing board or under construction, or leave it to be completed by another, but you must seek God and dream again.

3. Cultivate The Companionship Of Other Dreamers

By interpreting the dream of the butler in Genesis 40:5, Joseph was introduced to Pharoah, who also had a dream, one that changed Joseph’s life. So build relationships with people who also have a dream who strengthen your faith and shape you into the right person, for ‘Iron sharpens iron…so a man sharpens …his friend.’ Proverbs 27:17.

So keep your dream alive, dream again, only bigger and surround yourself with fellow dreamers, all the way to the fulfilment of your wonderful dream.
