Joseph made quite a name for himself. He went from the bottom of the pit to second in command of the most powerful empire in his world. It’s not only going to serve him well, but also his whole family. But a question comes up as I read the text, “What is dream interpretation today?” Can we or should we try to make sense or unravel a secret meaning behind our dreams. Are they a form of communication? Why can only Joseph do this interpretation? I personally think dreams are just dreams until they stick in your head in such a way that you don’t forget. If it is something you are to know, God will provide an answer for you through his means and not the lady with the crystal ball and tarot cards! I have had God speak to me a few times in my dreams and it helped me have the courage to follow him in his plan for my life. What do dreams mean to you?
This blog was originally written by Pastor Doug Bartel of Hillcrest Church, starting in Spring 2009. Keep that in mind if you read anything that doesn't quite add up to the time of year.
Come journey with us as we read through the Bible in a year. It is our desire to hear what God wants from us and to know his promises as well as warnings. Each day we will read a text and together we will share what we are learning and encourage one another to finish the goal!
