Why did Joseph share his prophetic dream with his brothers? In his naivity, he thought his brothers would rejoice with him when he shared his dreams with them. Instead, it caused their jealous to turn to hatred of him and the favor of the father on his life. Genesis 37 revealed that as Joseph was entering into the town of Dothan his brothers said to one another, “Look, this dreamer is coming! Come now let us kill him and cast him into some pit: and we shall see what will become of his dreams” (vv.19-20). Did you notice it? It was Joseph’s promise and purpose they wanted to kill. Sometimes, you gotta be careful when sharing your dreams with others. While we need people to help us grow, not all people are happy about the advancements we make in life. I have heard it said, “People want you to succeed but not that much.” Wisdom teaches us to wait and be careful about our conversation and ‘the pearls of our hearts’. I would even tell you to guard your dream and thus protect the words being spoken over it. I want life spoken into my life and future. God is always faithful to raise up armor bearers and encouragers to share in what He wants to bring to pass in your life. We know the end of Joseph’s lower story (Genesis 50) and we also know that despite the many obstacles he endured God’s upper story plan and purpose for his life could not be STOP!
