Genesis 37:1-11 “Dreams and Where they Lead Us”

Joseph has his dream of his brothers and parents bowing down to him and they resent him. The fact that Joseph had a special coat given to him by his father means Jacob had big dreams for him. When Joseph receives the dream telling him that his disgruntled brothers will one day bow down to him, he is excited for the change. But the fulfillment of God’s vision for Joseph will not come easily or as expected. The path to ascension will begin with a descent. The process will transform Joseph. In the same way, God has a vision for our lives, and it is a plan to prosper us, not to harm us. But the path toward the fulfillment of that plan will be challenging and uncomfortable. Like Christ’s ascension through the Cross, we too will be humbled before we become all that God dreams for us.
