'And he dreamed yet another dream and told it his brethren'
Many motivational speakers have told us to have dreams and pursue them till we succeed.However,the Word gives us a different perspective.This Kind that Joseph had was not man made,it was imputed into the consciousness of JOSEPH by God Himself.He was brought into an awareness of the great purpose God had for his life.A friend of mine made me understand that you do not need to sleep to dream ,but the dream itself keeps you from sleeping.
I'd like you to know that any idea,dream,vision that is born of God never dies;it is like the incorruptible seed of the Word of God.Its so amazing that he had to dream yet another dream.After he declared to his brothers the first dream,they were offended at such a revelation and it was said that that they hated him.Many times the response of those whom we share our dreams with(especially if they are close to us)goes a long way in affecting our disposition towards the dream God gives to us.But,God in his mercy had to re-assure Joseph by giving him the dream again even in a more vivid picture that it was unmistakable.
We need persons like Jacob who will keep our dream to heart when we share it with them.It was recorded that while his brethren envied him,his father kept the sayings in his heart.We need to meet such persons in life.
Peradventure,The Lord placed a dream in your hands and it has been terminated by one circumstance or the other.Never mind,God is merciful,He can reveal it to you again and again till it is embedded in your heart.In Jer.33:3,he said 'Call Unto me and i will answer and i will SHOW YOU great and mighty things which you do not know'
The charge today is to keep your dream alive,even though you've lost it,it can be recovered.Afterall an axe head was recovered from the waters.
Central Truth:You can dream again.God is able to revive your long forgotten or dead dreams.
FOCUS SCRIPTURE:Genesis 37:
Lord,revive me again.Cause me to dream again.Cause the right persons to be brought my way.Persons who will keep my dream to heart.
