TOPIC : CONSEQUENCES OF A LIFE WHOSE DREAM IS UNDER ATTACKED
Scripture :Genesis 37: 19. And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh. 20. Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter with the word, as we continue to carry out our priestly ministry of prayer. God will often give some of us dreams like Joseph, whether day dream or night dream!
However, this dream can be attacked by various enemies, one of such enemies is house wickedness. Todays we shall be looking at the consequences of a dream under attack by household enemy.
When your life is under the attack of household enemy (a case study of Joseph); (Gen 37:5,19-20).
It was as soon as Joseph began to have dreams and tell it to his brethren that enmity started. So a day came when they planned to kill him just to ensure he never achieved that dream of his life.
So it is today, when your family members are enemies of your dream!
The following are the results you will notice when your dream is under attack by household enemies:
1. Evil conspiracy(Gen.37:19-20): They conspired to kill Joseph but God stopped that conspiracy by passing through one of them who opposed the killing. When your dream is under attack, you experience evil conspiracy from members of your family! You wonder why they are planning to kill you!
A sister once came to me and said Pastor, “I don’t know what I did that they are after my life?” I smiled and asked her a question relating to football match. I asked, have you ever see anyone in a football pitch been attack by opponent if he is not with the ball? The simple answer is no! But as soon as the ball is on your feet, every one rushes in your direction wanting to collect the ball from you!
The reason for the attack is so that you don’t score the goal. I now went to explain to her that the reason she is being attacked is because she is in possession of the ball and the attack is to ensure she never scores the goal.
Beloved, your dream represents the goal that must be scored! The reason for the enemy conspiracy against you now is because of your dream.
I don’t know what kind of dream God has given you in life and the household power has been fighting you seriously! I have a good news for you, from the same family members, God will raise a deliverer for you. That ball that has been handed over to you by God, you shall score a goal with it in the name of Jesus.
2) The pit like condition(Gen.37:24): The second thing they did to Joseph was they threw him into the pit because of his dream.
What is a pit?
A pit is a hole, a cavity in the ground. Inside the pit is full of darkness, stagnation and struggle. This is what the Bible said:
Isaiah 42: 22. But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.
This implies that when you are in a pit you are robbed of you freedom! Your life is confined to a particular spot. Year in year out, no progress!
Beloved, the reason why some persons are in a pit is because of their dreams! So stop saying why am I in the pit?
You didn’t just go to the pit, a force took you there, and it will require another higher force to bring you out of that pit. By the grace of God I announce to you today, any pit they kept you currently, you are coming out !
Zechariah 9: 11. As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.*
So by the blood of Jesus I bail you out of that pit wherein is no water! Water means life, water means refreshing.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. Don’t joke with eternity. Your eternal soul matters to God.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– O Lord deliver me from household enemies that are after my life because of my dream in the name of Jesus.
Prophetic Declaration ;
– I prophesy upon your life, you are coming out of pit of stagnation and oppression.
– Every satanic conspiracy from your father’s house is cancelled now in Jesus name.
