HOLD ON TO THE DREAM
How many opportunities did Joseph have to give up on the promise of God? Did he really understand the dream?Over and over again he could have tried to fit his circumstances to match the dream. Again and again he could have imagined: he was now a slave, so maybe, his family would be sold into slavery. When he was in charge of Potiphar’s household he could have mused that his family would be serving there. Even in prison it was plausible to conclude that since he was promoted here too, that his family might become prisoners.
The God given Dreams for most believers die upon the storms of circumstances, resources, and opportunities. The devil used jealously, false accusation, delays, inferiority to try and derail Joseph. If he had lost heart and hope the slide to compromise would be fast! The God-given dream over your life is bigger than your circumstances. Faith requires you to contend for and hold on to the dream God has entrusted! The devil is a liar…all of the time! Circumstances while bigger than our own solutions or resources fall at the sound of His voice. Don’t concede the dream! Don’t morph it into less than God gave you!
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 NKJV
