Fruitfulness in the Land of Affliction

God ministered the healing that allowed Joseph to forget and be free from the convict mentality. So often people are set free from prison only to live life as a former convict, complete with the victim mentality. Without inner healing we will never be free from the past. We will view all the most important relationships in life through the memories of those who hurt us in the past.

The Revealer of Secrets

God often uses our “gift” as a tool to bring us out of prison, yet the gift is what God develops as we allow Him to strengthen our spirit and impart His understanding. You can never teach others a lesson you have not yourself learned.

Pharaoh Dreamed

What frees believers from the prison of self-pity and bitterness is a willingness to minister to others. Your dream will always involve other people. If you are unwilling to help others understand the will of God for their lives, God will not be able to fulfill His will in your life. The will of God for His People always involves others. You cannot fulfill God’s plan in your life without the participation of others.

The Dreams of Others

Those who walk with God and are serving God in truth are often uniquely positioned to bring understanding to others. Part of our calling as dreamers is to bring light to those whose lives God is touching. If believers are so preoccupied with their own troubles and trials, it is difficult for God to use them to speak His truth to others.

Remembering the Dream

If the dream came from God, He is faithful and will fulfill the dream. God shares His plans with His people in order to sustain them through the times of trail that come to all who dare to dream. Man’s part is to remain faithful and continue to allow God to develop the traits in us that we need to participate in what God is doing. God fulfills dreams; man must walk with God. Walking in the dream is walking with God.

Here Comes the Dreamer

Here Comes the Dreamer “And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.” Gen 37:11 “And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him.

And Joseph Dreamed a Dream

“And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.” Gen 37:5 Talk about a “blended family!” Jacob’s family was not unlike many families in our country today. Jacob was married and had children by four different women. The only thing that would make Jacob’s family different from many families in our …

Kingdom Concepts – Parables for Your Life

During His earthly ministry, Jesus told fifty or more parables, depending how you categorize the Lord’s teaching. Of these at least eighteen are kingdom-related. When I use the term “kingdom-related,” I am saying that Christ directly tied the teaching of the parable to the kingdom of God or the kingdom of heaven. I will make no attempt in this work …
