In the book of Genesis there is a story about Joseph. Joseph was a dreamer. His father favored him and gave him a coat of many colors. Because of this, his brothers threw him in a ditch and sold him as a slave. He was beaten, falsely accused and thrown into prison. Joseph never gave up on the dream but pursued the promises of God through it all. Because of his faith and tenacity, Pharaoh made him the Vizier which is the highest official in Ancient Egypt to serve the king. Pharaoh also placed a gold chain on his neck and put his signet ring on his finger which meant that Joseph now owned and had authority over everything that was Pharaohs. He then gave him a new name which was Zaphnath-Paaneah which means “Revealer of mysteries”. Some of you have been like Joseph. You once had a dream but your life seems to be going in the opposite direction. This is the word of the Lord for you.
The Lord says, do not allow anything to steal the dream that I have placed in your heart. Never give up on what I have promised to you. I am the restorer of dreams, and My word will come to pass. Just as Josephs father, I have given you a coat of many colors. For those of you who have been betrayed by your brothers and sisters, I am the restorer of the breach. That which has been broken in your lives shall be mended. Those relationships that have been severed and disarrayed will be restored. Your families will come into alignment with My plans as they continue to observe your dedication to Me.
Just as Potiphar’s wife falsely accused Joseph, those of you who have been falsely accused and lied about will be recompensed and rewarded for your integrity. As you continue to walk in holiness and not compromise or submit when others try to lead you astray, you will discover the greater plan. There is nothing hidden, that will not be revealed; nor anything secret, that will not be known and come to light.
To those of you who have been imprisoned with fear and torment, I have the keys to hell and death. Trust Me to be your deliverer and set you free. I will release you and bring you into all that I have called you to do. Don’t look at things that are happening in the natural because My plans for you are beyond natural reasoning. Never settle for less than what I have for you.
Ask Me for wisdom to make your dream a reality and the faith to step out. Continue to pursue My plans without looking back to your past mistakes and failures. I will bring people into your life to help you fulfill the dream that I have placed in your heart. These will be divine connections with others who believe as you do, and will help to encourage you. Sever any relationships from people that will try to annihilate your dreams and hinder your growth.
Just as Joseph was raised from the pit to this high calling, I will bring you out of your despair and raise you up in My kingdom. Never let go of your dream but hold on with the same tenacity as Joseph had. I Am the revealer of mysteries and I will also reveal My mysteries to you. You will then have My favor and you will be ruler over adverse situations rather than having them control you says the Lord.
Psalm 37:4 “Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.”
Psalm 105: 17 “He sent a man before them – Joseph, sold as a slave. They bruised his feet with shackles, his neck was put in irons, till what he foretold came to pass, till the word of the Lord proved him true.”
Psalm 105: 20 – 25 “The king sent and released him, the ruler of peoples set him free. He made him master of his household, ruler over all he possessed, to instruct his princes as he pleased and teach his elders wisdom. Then Israel entered Egypt; Jacob lived as an alien in the land of Ham. The Lord made his people very fruitful; he made them too numerous for their foes, whose hearts he turned to hate his people, to conspire against his servants.”
Ephesians 3: 20 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think , according to the power that worketh in us.”
