The Dream Police

His brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, and they hated him, and couldn't speak peaceably to him. Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brothers, and they hated him all the more. Genesis 37:4 WEB

The Lord gave Joseph a dream when he was just a young boy and showed him that one day, he would be promoted above his brothers. He was so excited that he told them about it, but they became even more jealous than they were before. He was already the favorite son in the family, and now this. "Who does he think he is? He is our little brother."

Joseph traveled a hard road before that dream came to pass. He was sold into slavery, then falsely accused of attempted rape, then had to serve time in prison. Yet right when it was supposed to happen, the dream came to pass and his brothers were bowing down before him. The nay sayers could not stop his dream, only their own, and the actions they took to prevent him from being promoted, actually caused it.

Be careful sharing the things that God has told you with the wrong people. Don't cast your pearls before swine (Matthew 7:6). Hang onto them, remember them, write them in a journal. There will always be those that want to keep you beneath them and when you start to rise up, they will try to bring you back down. Just like the real police, anything that you tell them can and will be used against you.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please set a guard over my mouth and give me wisdom about what I share. Give me the grace to keep my mouth shut and smile when needed. Lead me into all that You have for me and make Your thoughts, my thoughts, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
