Waiting on the dream and been patient in tough times
The dreams God revealed to joseph happened exactly as he dreamt. This is the dream Joseph had and told his brothers before they sold him into slavery.
Genesis 37:9 Then He dreamed still another dream and told it to His brothers, and said, “Look I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.
And this is the dream coming to pass.
Now Joseph was governor over the land; and it was he who sold to all the people of the land. And Joseph’s brothers came and bowed before Him with their faces to the earth.
The dream did not come from Joseph., the dream came from God. Who is the author and creator of the universe, so why would it not come to pass?
The only way the dream will not happen is if we don’t accept and believe the dream. If God has revealed a dream to you , nobody can stop that dream, the only person that can stop the dream is you.
If we continue to walk with God and in obedience with Him.
Joseph was able to stand the trials and temptations and test before seeing His dream come true.
1. He did not give in to portiphars wife, He feared God.
2. He was able to stand during the tough times in prison. He was able to make the best out of His circumstance in prison.He served in prison. Are we still spending time with God in the tough times? Are we still reading His word? Are we still living in obedience in tough times? Do we stilll believe we have hope in tough times with God? Do we still treat people right?
3 . Joseph was patient in prison. Are we patient with God to open a door himself and not open our own doors? When the kings butler had a dream and Joseph interpreted the dream,Joseph told him to remember him and mention him to pharaoh so He can get him out of prison.
But the butler forgot Joseph. Now look at this… In God’s own time and with God’s mighty hand Joseph came out of prison, and he wasn’t just released. He was released to be king.
Now if Joseph had fought his own way out and the butler had told the king earlier about Joseph when Joseph told him to, He would have been released as the same ordinary man.
Sometimes there is a reason why your breakthrough can take so long. There is a reason why your dreams haven’t come to pass yet. There is a reason your prayers haven’t been answered yet. Be patient. Wait on God. Because God himself will cause mountains to move on your behalf. God doesn’t want you to come out of your breakthrough the same as you are now. He wants you to come out a king, a queen , a publisher, a singer, a mighty man and mighty woman. When we are patient for God to move in His time, our blessing will be bigger. But when we are inpatient and figure things on our own, nothing great comes out of it. So not seeing your dreams coming to pass now and your breakthrough now doesn’t mean God has neglected you or its not going to happen. Something great has to come out of all the crying and the praying and the worshiping and the patience you’ve had. Something great will come out of the obedience and commitment to God. Your time has not been wasted.
He hath made everything beautiful in His time. ( Ecclesiastes 3:11)
God wants to release you greater than what you were prior to your difficulties, so be patient.
Isaiah 40:31 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
God doesn’t just want your circumstance to change, He wants you to be the change. He is building a warrior out of you through the tough times, He is building a king,a soldier through the tough times.
God built Joseph as a governor during the tough times in prison. He learnt to become the future governor in the tough times in prison. Lets continue to commit ourselves and seek God through every tough season so He can build as to be His warriors.
