I pray you’re having a great week so far.
Last week on our LIVE TV broadcast, we were honored to have Evangelist Joe Oden on the program, as we discussed the topic, “Fulfilling the God Dreams in Your Heart.” I wanted to take some of the points from our episode and encourage you as you prepare to face the day ahead.
Has God given you a dream? Has he placed dreams in your heart for your future? I believe that God speaks to His children through dreams today! They might come in the form of an actual dream while you’re asleep, or they could also come as a strong desire that God puts inside your heart as you seek His face for His plan for your life.
In Genesis Chapter 37 we read how God came to Joseph in the night and gave him two prophetic dreams about what was to come in his future. Joseph saw in that dream how God was going to raise him up, even above his entire family. He went on to tell his brother’s what he saw and they despised him for it. They eventually plotted to kill him, but ended up throwing him into a pit until they sold him into slavery. Joseph would later on end up in the prison of his masters, but He held the God-given dream alive in his heart!
It’s important to note that not everyone will celebrate your dreams – even when they are God-breathed! In Gen. 37:20 the Bible says that Joseph’s brothers plotted to kill him and they said, “..we shall see what will become of his dreams!” Many times those shared dreams can bring jealousy and even persecution in your life. God will allow those testings and trials to refine you and prepare you for what He’s placed on the inside of you. Like Joseph, we need to continue to walk in integrity, humility and in faith through the temptations and attacks against us and believe that what God has spoken to us, will come to pass in Jesus’ Name!
At the end of Joseph’s life, God fulfilled his dreams and raised him up above his brothers to the second in command in all of Egypt, in order to preserve his entire family from famine. Joseph went from the pit, to the prison, to the palace! If God has given you a dream or a desire for your life, family or ministry, don’t give up on it! Persevere! Believe God and Declare it! God will fulfill your dreams, in perfect timing!
Many years ago, when Amanda and myself were in bible school, the Lord began to speak to our hearts about crusade ministry and global evangelism. We had no idea how that could ever be possible, but God had a plan. He had a dream for our lives! As we were faithful to Him and to what He had put in our hearts, He brought it all to pass supernaturally over the course of time, and we are believing the same for you!
