Joseph had a dream.
(Genesis 37:5 NIV)
The topic of dreams is prevalent in the Joseph account. As today’s passage reveals, it was Joseph who began to have dreams. Then few chapters later, we read about the dreams of the two prisoners (Genesis 40). Not long after, we’re told about Pharaoh and his dreams (Genesis 41). And they were no ordinary dreams. They all carried an important meaning and eventually became a reality.
Throughout history, men and women have dared to dream big. I’m reminded of a particular man whose dream changed the world in a major way. This man dreamed of freedom and equality arising from a land of slavery and hatred. His “I Have a Dream” speech was a defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement. Jon Meacham writes that, “With a single phrase, Martin Luther King Jr. joined Jefferson and Lincoln in the ranks of men who’ve shaped modern America.”
You have a big God, so dare to dream big too. Nothing is impossible with God.
