A Dream Come True!

One of my favorite Bible stories as a child was the story of Joseph. (His story can be found in Genesis 37, 39-47.) His life was full of promise and victory, yet he also encountered humiliation and defeat. Little did I know as a child that his story would encourage, empower and inspire me as an adult.

At a young age, God put a dream in the heart of Joseph and then carried it through to completion. Joseph had high hopes for his life because God put dreams in his heart. At an early age, God gave him actual dreams about his future as a ruler. However, at the tender age of 17 years young, he didn’t know how it all would play out, but faithfully he knew in his heart that God had a unique plan for his future.

When you read the story of Joseph, it’s easy to forget how many years pass before God’s promise was finally realized in his life. But the truth is that everything Joseph endured prepared him for all that God had planned for his life.

Joseph endured being betrayed by his own brothers and being sold into slavery. Not to mention that he was also falsely accused and thrown into prison. And even though God gave him favor in prison and never left his side, he still had to endure a time of waiting and wondering.

Hence my point of encouragement for you today:

When God place a dream in your heart, He will bring it to pass! God works all things together for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28)… even the things that are difficult and don’t make sense. Our journey in life can seem overly complicated and extremely messy at times, but God is faithful to use every part of our story to bring us closer to Him!
