Genesis 42:9 And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and said unto them, Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.
Our dreams often come true years later. We weren’t even thinking of them recently. Life has gotten too busy. Discouragement has set in.
For 13 years Joseph has been called away from his dream. I wonder if he ever forgot his dream even for a moment. I wonder if in dark moments he thought about giving up! I wonder if he ever felt like I do.
God has been great. He has loved me and led me for all these years. He has allowed so many dreams to come true. He has blessed the ministry. I am, in many ways, living my dreams.
I want to be careful to dream the right dreams. I want to be sure He gets the glory for anything good that happens in my life. I want to watch God accomplish His purposes in and through my life.
I am so often selfish. I think of me. I think of what is in it for me. I think of my glory, my ministry, my kingdom. I am so not what I want to be.
God help me to dream of you and yours. Help me to live for you. Help me to wait on you and what is best. Help me to trust you for when it is best.
If it means taking me out of the game for your kingdom then I ask you to do that! I want to serve you!
