Commentary from Pastor Mike White:
“So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words” (Gen 37:8). Joseph dreamt of greatness. God put dreams and visions in Joseph’s heart that displayed the future God would create for him. He shared his dreams with his brothers. Yet instead of pledging their love and support in accomplishing God’s will for Joseph’s life, they hated him.
Be careful who you share your dreams with. Are you sharing your dreams with people who will work with you to accomplish God’s will for your life? Or are you sharing them with people who will cut down the words God has put into your heart?
People will hate you for your dreams. If they don’t, you’re not dreaming big enough! More specifically, Satan will do everything he possibly can to make sure your dreams don’t materialize. Yet God promises us full and complete authority over all the power of the enemy (Lk 10:19).
No one can derail your dreams except for you. Let the haters hate. You get back to dreaming.
Father, thank You for the vision and purpose You have pronounced over my life! Thank You for depositing dreams into my heart that only You can fulfill. I will not allow the enemy to deter me from pursuing them!
