There is a fundamental difference between a true believer and an unbeliever. There is something about a true believer which shines bright even in the darkest days. As Christians, we have the light burning in each and every one of us. Do not allow anyone to deem your light. This light was burning so strong in the heart of a young man in the Bible called Joseph. He wouldn’t stop telling his brothers the plan of God for his life. He was not afraid to tell his brethren that he dreamed that they were in the field gathering sheaves when all his brothers’ sheaves fell down while his sheaves stood up.
Genesis 37:5-8 “And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more. 6And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed: for, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf. And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.”
When his brethren heard about his dream, they were not happy. The Bible said they hated him the more for his dreams and for his words. You will notice that sometimes it is not the things you do to someone that makes others to hate you; may I suggest to you that may be the reason you are facing that challenge in your place of work or in your school is because of the dreams that you have narrated to them.
Your very existence can be the thing that your colleagues fear the most. The fact that they know deep down in them that they will someday bow down to you causes them to hate you even more. Your situation is not unique and you are not being forgotten by God. No matter how much they hated Joseph, God was with him and kept promoting him all the way. Your dreams should not die because of what others think of you. Jesus did not stop dreaming because his brethren were upset, as a matter of fact he even dreamed more and narrated bigger dreams that even his father asked him, what type of dreams are those.
Genesis 37:9-10 “And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?”
Your dreams should be bigger than the space in which you find yourself for God to take you to the next level. Joseph had a dream that could not fit his neighbourhood. You should dream of taking over the world. These are dreams that excite the Holy Spirit. Small dreams do not excite the Holy Spirit. At the age of 30, Joseph went on to become a ruler in Egypt based on his dreams that he started nourishing at the age of 17 years. His brothers called him a dreamer, his friends laughed at him, his father rebuked him but God saw him through.
