God’s Dream is the Real You

Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more. Genesis 37:5 NKJV
Joseph’s story in the Bible is always interesting and insightful.
It all starts with Joseph sleeping one night and having a dream from the Lord.
The Bible says that when he told his brothers about it, they hated him so much because of this dream.
Do you know that there are people you tell your dreams to, and because they sound like big dreams, they hear something else? Maybe all you said to them was, ‘I have this dream in this area or for my future’, and what they hear is, ‘I am bigger than you because I can dream bigger than you’, when you never even thought of that. Interesting, right?
Back to our story, though.
After this, Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers and ended up in prison. A lot happened to him. However, on a particular day, Pharaoh called him, and his dream started manifesting from that day on.
God had told him he was born to rule. Now the real him had started manifesting. Everything before then had been trying to make him give up on himself and his dreams. But the Lord and His Word won, and his dream, which was his real life, manifested.
Moses had a dream too. He had a dream to deliver his people from Egypt. However, the situations all told him that it would never happen. Pharaoh would never let them go, and even the Israelites might turn against him. The whole situation turned against him.
But eventually the Lord won, as He ALWAYS does when He gives you a dream. Moses started living his real life – the life of a deliverer. This was what he was born for. It was the real him!
Wherever you are now is not the real you. Whatever the Lord has told you is the real you. Whatever the Lord has put in your heart that has become your desire, is the real you.
Your current character is not the real you. Whatever you do not love about yourself now is not the real you. That which the Lord has put in your heart – which you feel you want to develop yourself in – is the real you.
There are always lies from your environment and the world, before you start manifesting God’s dreams for your life. You need to not allow these lies to confuse you. You are NOT your circumstances.
Rather, your desires and dreams are the pointers to the real you.
Just hang in there. You will become His dream of you in Jesus Name.
I know the desires and dreams that are from the Lord in my heart are valid. I am not confused by where I am now. The Lord’s dream for my life is the real me, and I am developing myself in the Word, and getting closer to manifesting it daily, in Jesus Name.
