Dream Of Great Might Things - Bro. T. Stephen

My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of Genesis 41:41, “And Pharaoh said to Joseph , See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”

My dear brothers and Sisters some of you are worried and are filled with tears because you have been rejected by your own dear ones or by your boss at your work spot. Some might have been rejected by your own husband. So you are depressed and dejected. But God is mindful of you. He will neither leave you nor forsake you. Some of you might have worked hard for the progress of your family but you were never appreciated or honoured by the members of your family. And this has caused much pain to you. But God wants you to be cheerful . Because God is greater than your heart and knows all things. He will perfect that which concerns you. God will perform what is appointed for you. God desires to honour His children and exalt them at the appointed time.. The Bible records one such person who was rejected and despised but he found favour in the sight of the Lord and so was exalted.

Joseph was the favoured son of Jacob and Rachel. Jacob loved Joseph more than all his children because he was the son of his old age. Also he made a tunic of many colours. When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers they hated him. Joseph was a dreamer. God gave him dreams and the ability to interpret dreams. When Joseph dreamt a dream he shared it innocently to his brothers and they hated them all the more. Joseph’s brothers went to feed their flocks in Shechem. So one day his father called Joseph and said, “Please go and see if it is well with your brothers, and well with the flocks. And bring back word to me.” On his way Joseph inquired men in Shechem , if they had seen his brothers feeding his flocks. On hearing that heir brothers had gone to Dotham he diligently sought for them. When the brothers saw Joseph they said, Look the dreamer is coming.” They decided to kill him. Later they cast him into an empty pit in the wilderness. Suddenly they saw some merchants. So they pulled him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelite for twenty shekels of silver. They dipped his coat with the blood of goat and duped their father saying that some wild beast had devoured him. Therefore Jacob wept for Joseph.

God was mindful of Joseph because he was blameless before God. Since he was a dreamer he interpreted the dream of Pharaoh and saved Egypt from seven years of famine. As a result , Pharaoh set him over all the land of Egypt. Thus God exalted Joseph in the strange land. Joseph was precious in the sight of the Lord, so he honoured and exalted him, before his brothers. Therefore my dear children never lose heart . Trust in Jesus He will lift you higher. Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like the eagles.

God bless you.


Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. We praise you Lord for your goodness towards us. We thank you for honouring and exalting your children. Help them never to be disheartened about the displeasure they experience in their life. Cause them to be enlightened by your strength. In Jesus name we pray.
