19 They said to one another, “Here comes this dreamer.” 20 Come now, let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits. Then we will say that a fierce animal has devoured him, and we will see what will become of his dreams.”
Dreaming is a dangerous business. Dreamers are the treasurers of heaven, the stewards of God’s very heart. That being said, it is no wonder that dreamers, by their very nature, stir up deep antagonism.
Dreams carry the seed of revival. Dreams house the blueprint of destiny. They come to us from that other dimension, and the weight of their telling bears down like shekinah itself. Glory abounds!
God dreams His dream in us, and we get to wonder as we wait. We can’t rush into it. We can’t force its fulfillment. And yet, we have a profound role. Like Mary, the mother of Jesus, we carry the dream of God’s heart like a pregnancy. The dream comes to us so small, that we almost wonder if we brushed into the divine at all. And yet, deep down, deep within, we know. Long before anyone else can tell, we know! We are full of promise.
Here is some important wisdom for dreamers: No matter what kind of opposition comes your way, safeguard the dream of the Lord. Like Joseph, you may end up in a pit. Don’t let go of God’s dream. Like Mary, you may endure wagging heads and gossip, don’t abort. Treasure the dream of God’s heart.
Dreamers are entrusted with God’s most precious thoughts. Don’t despair in the pit. Don’t despair in the delay. Just hold on tight. Surely, the word of the Lord will not return to Him void.
