Kill the Dreamer!

Then they said to one another, "Look, this dreamer is coming! Come therefore, let us now kill him and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, ‘Some wild beast has devoured him.’ We shall see what will become of his dreams!” (Genesis 37:19,20).

The devil is forever trying to put an end to the dreams that come from God. And he will use any means available to succeed in his assaults against dreamers. Family, friends, and foes alike may be unwittingly employed by the Dark Prince to keep the light of a godly dream from exposing his deceptions.

What better way to descredit a dream than by destroying the dreamer?

Thus, Joseph’s brothers become co-conspirators in a diabolic plot to thwart the purposes of God in Joseph’s life. Little did they know that they were playing right into the very hand of the Lord Himself. For the decisions made in that desperate moment by these deceitful brothers set in motion a chain of events which ultimately brought these very men to bow in the presence of Joseph -- just as he had dreamed!

Don't give up on your dreams, my friend, even if it looks like all is lost -- for God will bring them to pass just as He promised.

Though it may take longer than you expected, and lead you through things you never anticipated -- let the dream do its work, and it will bring you to the place where you see with your eyes what your dared to believe in your heart.
