Keeping your God-given dreams alive
May 27, 2009
So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe….
God called Joseph a successful man, even though it may be hard to imagine why based on the Scripture above.
You see, the hands of the Lord were on Joseph. And the secret of his success was the dreams that God had placed in his heart. And in these dreams Joseph fulfilled the destiny that God had given him.
In the Scripture, we can see that Joseph’s dreams nearly died when his brothers took his coat, put him in a pit, and sold him into slavery. And again when he was falsely accused and imprisoned.
You and I have something in common with Joseph. God gives us dreams, too. He gives you dreams for your future, for your family, for your ministry, for your life, and for your career.
But my friend, I want you to hear this. We have something else in common with Joseph. It is a near certainty that your God-given dream will be on a collision course with difficulty.
When that happens, don’t let those difficulties rob you of your dreams or your destiny. Do not listen to Satan who would say, “What about those dreams? Where’s your God now?”
I want you to persevere through every trial like Joseph did. But to do that, you need to allow God to teach you the lessons you need to learn… and keep believing that the day will eventually come when God fulfills the dreams and plans he has for you!
DON’T LET DIFFICULTIES ROB YOU OF YOUR DREAMS OR DESTINY!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
