A dreamer comes in many shapes, forms, and fashions. They can be man, woman, boy or girl. Their dream was conceived and is waiting to be birthed, but many things can put a hold or stop to their dream. The dreamer has something that some people want. The dreamer has something some people need. The dreamer has something the enemy (Satan) wants to destroy (John 10 :10).
I can recall a story in the bible about the life of a young man named Joseph, who dreamed of greatness (Genesis 37). Joseph was a young man who was born into a big family. He had big dreams, and always dreamed of being successful. Some of his siblings were offended by the roles they played in his dreams, so they plotted to “destroy“ his dreams. They decided to sell him for 20 pieces of silver –or as James Brown would say, some “chicken change”.
Joseph was also falsely accused of rape and thrown into prison. Nevertheless Joseph had favor with God and with man and was eventually released from prison. Joseph became the Prime Minister of Egypt. That’s what I call promotion!
Now let’s take a look at another young man named Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls. This young man grew up in one of the most notorious and poverty stricken areas on the Southside of Chicago, Illinois. Derrick also dreamt big dreams of success. He dreamt of one day being a major NBA athlete.
He now can do all the things he dreamed of for his family and community, despite of ALL the dream killers, haters, and doubters had to say or what they did! Derrick Rose pursued his Dream! He is now one of the best point guards and basketball players in the NBA! So remember your Blessing can come from the Dreamer’s dream!
Don’t Kill the Dreamer!
