A Message from the WLD
Theme Song: Days of Elijah
Being thrown into a big hole in the ground and left to die is not the way I would choose for God to awaken me to my dream! But that’s just what Joseph’s loving (and somewhat jealous) brothers did in response to Joseph’s youthful pride and arrogance (boys will be boys).
Joseph, with God’s help, learned that events and “circumstances” in one’s life do not matter as much as how we respond when things happen. Joseph went on to discover that he (little “h”) was not the one interpreting dreams. Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I had a dream, and no one can interpret it. But I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.” “I cannot do it,” Joseph replied to Pharaoh, “but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires.” (Genesis 41:15-16)
A bit further in the story Joseph is not blaming his brothers, but crediting God’s ultimate plan (or, dream!) for Joseph’s life. “So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He (big “H”) made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt.” (Genesis 45:8)
What “circumstances” have you experienced in life? Are you blaming others for things that have happened, or have you begun to Awaken to the Dream and understand how God can use your “circumstances” to change lives for Him?
On E-137 we will be awakening to God’s dream for ourselves, our families, our churches, our Emmaus community, and most importantly to the 40 pilgrims on the mountain in New Windsor. We know the dream is not about us, but it includes us. We trust the Dream Giver and open our hearts to His desires.
God has a dream for your life! Join us on E-137 as we search for ways to awaken to it.
