Dreams take you to the next dream
Joseph was 17 years old when he had his first noted dream. This dream would tell many stories in his life, whether he knew or not. The important thing about his dream to me was what he actually did with it. Joseph could have thrown the dream to the back of his mind, Joseph could have thought about it day and night, or Joseph could have taken action with the dream. Joseph chose the latter by telling his close family.
Taking action based on a dream is not the end of the matter. Joseph was rebuked by his dad and was also ridiculed by his brothers. His brothers really didn’t like him already, this made things even worse. Joseph could have again pushed it to the back of his mind, he could have thought about it day and night, or he could do something about it again. Joseph kept dreaming! How many of you try something, feel some pressure and then get out of it as soon as possible, which is usually by quitting? They say in order to grow muscle, you need to use weights, they say to make money investing, you need to invest, how could Joseph make his dream real without acting based on it?
The equation is usually simple but what many of us do with it is make it complicated. Many of us allow the world to tell us no, when the important one is saying yes. Self says yes and this is the most important person. Several people told me I can’t write and I am a published author today who can write very well. People who have never written one page of a book told me I could not write a book in one way or another and I can hold my published work any time I please. How many people who have never done what you desire to told you no? Look at yourself, when someone told you no and you said yes and you succeeded, this speaks volumes. How many doctors claim someone will never walk again, or they have x amount of months to live are proven to be wrong?
I had a dream I would have a blog and my action made it reality. God was not going to make my blog appear from thin air, one man watered, another planted and God bought increase. I had a vision to start the daily ministration, which means at the end of a year, I should have a minimum of 365 blog posts. If this is not the case something is wrong. It means I was not walking in the vision the way I was supposed to. I didn’t blame another or cast blame to something else, it lies with me. I’m the one which needed to make changes and at the end of the year, I will look back and see more than 365 posts and know I made it happen…
