The other side of dreams-5
Genesis 37:5 “And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told [it] his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.”
Genesis 37:11 “And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.”
David simply turned “from him towards another” (1Sam.17:30), that is the correct response. He turned away from the opposition to the supporters!
The opposition wears us out, while the supportes encourage and strengthens us. If you listen to the opposition long enough, you’ll lose the courage to start and continue. David knew this truth, so he simply ignored Eliab and turned to the people that were not trying to stop him.
Friend, for every enemy there is a friend. For every doubter a believer. Locate the believers and stick with them!
Another challenge that’ll likely be thrown at you is that of little or no resources. Let’s take a case study:
Genesis 12:1 “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:”
Genesis 12:2 “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:”
God personally appeared to Abram and gave him a very outstanding dream. He promised him a land flowing with milk and honey, he promised to make him a nation and bless him beyond measure. He promised Abram so much wealth that he’ll become a channel of blessing.
The dream was so wonderful and he immediately set about achieving it.
Genesis 12:4 “So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram [was] seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.”
Genesis 12:9 “And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.”
Abram obeyed God by hurrying towards the promised land. Well, who wouldn’t!
To be continued…
