One night Joseph had a dream and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever. Listen to his dream he said. We were out in the field tying up bundles of grain. Suddenly my bundle stood up and your bundles gathered around and bowed low before mine. His brothers responded, so you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us? And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them. Soon Joseph had another dream and again he told his brothers about it. Listen, I have had another dream, he said. The sun, moon and eleven stars bowed low before me. This time he told the dream to his father as well as to his brothers, but his father scolded him. What kind of dream is that? He asked. Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow to the ground before you? But while his brothers were jealous of Joseph, his father wondered what the dreams meant – Genesis 37 : 5 – 11.
God revealed to Joseph what has been divinely established for him. It is a great joy when He reveal His secret about our lives to us. God is not an author of confusion, when He gives you a dream, you will have peace within you it doesn’t matter how the people around you feel about it because God cannot take permission from anyone before He planned our lives. If Joseph knew that his siblings will be so angry to the extent of planning to take his life, he wouldn’t have told them his dream and his brothers did not know that the power to fulfill the dreams was in the hands of God and not on the coat of many colours that Joseph put on. It is of ulmost importance that we should be careful of those we inform about our dreams. If the siblings knew that selling Joseph to the Ishmaelites, they were pushing him to the place where his destiny will be fulfiled, they wouldn’t have sold him.
God choose David to be the future king of Israel even when Saul was still on the throne and He confirmed this by sending Samuel to go to the house of Jesse and anoint David – 1 Samuel 16. David was not qualified in anyway because even when Samuel got to Jesse’s house and saw David’s siblings, he thought that they were the choosen one but God that sees into the heart told Samuel that He don’t choose based on physical appearance but His choice is based on the heart. God is not a partial God and He has destined David to be the future king. God has not choose those that Samuel met home.
Then Samuel asked, are these all the sons you have? There is still the youngest, Jesse replied. But he’s out in the fields watching the sheep and gosts. Send for him at once, Samuel said. We will not sit down to eat until he arrives – 1 Samuel 16:11.
It doesn’t matter what people says about you, it doesn’t matter what your family and friends might be saying about you, it doesn’t matter how people have disqualified you, your destiny is in the hands of God and it is only Him knows what He has destined you to become. Becasue it has already been established, when David met with Jonathan, what happened?
And Jonathan made a solemn pact with David because he loved him as he loved himself. Jonathan sealed the pact by taking off his robe and giving it to David, together with his tunic, sword, bow and belt 1 Samuel 18 : 3-4.
Brethren, nothing happens ordinarily without a spiritual backing. Jonathan did not know that David has been anointed many years back but God that choose David will bring everything towards the direction of David that will make him to fulfil what He has destined for him. Jonathan was supposed to be the next king when king Saul passed away but he has to handover his kingship to David. Whenever a shift of power has happened in the spiritual realm, there will always be something that will happen in the physical that will triger the accomplishment.
In the life of Esau and Jacob, it was not the day that Isaac blessed Jacob that the blessing shifted. It has already been shifted even when they were still in their mother’s womb – Genesis 25 : 23. At birth, Jacob grabbed Esau’s heel which was a sign of what is going to happen. Esau’s exchange of portage with birth right was a sign of bringing things to accomplishment that has been established. Ordinarily, what connection do portage have with birth right? No connection, but because it has been established in the spiritual, Esau has to transfer his authority to his junior brother. Why could Jacob not asked for any other thing but birth right? I have read in many places where people blame Esau for selling his birth right? The power was not on the hunger but rather it was already in the spirit. Why others blaming Rebekah? Everything has to work towards the direction of fulfilling the spiritual purpose.
God’s love for mankind is very great no matter our errors, mistakes or sins, His love is higher. If we can obey God’s instructions, we will live in peace and He will fulfil His plans and purpose for our lives because He is too faithful to fail.
