Jacob loved Joseph more than any of his other children because Joseph had been born to him in his old age. So one day Jacob had a special gift made for Joseph—a beautiful robe. But his brothers hated Joseph because their father loved him more than the rest of them. They couldn’t say a kind word to him. One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever. “Listen to this dream,” he said. “We were out in the field, tying up bundles of grain. Suddenly my bundle stood up, and your bundles all gathered around and bowed low before mine!” His brothers responded, “So you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them. Soon Joseph had another dream, and again he told his brothers about it. “Listen, I have had another dream,” he said. “The sun, moon, and eleven stars bowed low before me!” But while his brothers were jealous of Joseph, his father wondered what the dreams meant. When Joseph’s brothers saw him coming, they recognized him in the distance. As he approached, they made plans to kill him. “Here comes the dreamer!” they said. “Come on, let’s kill him and throw him into one of these cisterns. We can tell our father, ‘A wild animal has eaten him.’ Then we’ll see what becomes of his dreams!” So when Joseph arrived, his brothers ripped off the beautiful robe he was wearing. Then they grabbed him and threw him into the cistern. Now the cistern was empty; there was no water in it. Then the brothers killed a young goat and dipped Joseph’s robe in its blood. They sent the beautiful robe to their father with this message: “Look at what we found. Doesn’t this robe belong to your son?” Meanwhile, the Midianite traders arrived in Egypt, where they sold Joseph to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. Potiphar was captain of the palace guard.

Let’s Think About Joseph
Joseph was chosen by God and had dreams that came to pass… Joseph didn’t ask for the dream, He just had them. Because Joseph was God’s anointed and His chosen his brothers hated him.. Not only that they made plans to hurt Joseph to trap him but they didnt know that God was still in control.
When People Come Against You You may have not done anything wrong , you may have just done what God told you to do and people are coming against you….. but you have to keep going. Joseph went through a 13 year process there were times that he wondered … God why ? Why me ? But God had it in his plan to bless Joseph to save His people !
The Dreams Are Real I am not talking about fantasies … I am talking about dreams. Don’t quit the process and don’t give up. Dreams of you preaching the gospel, dreams of you in government for God, and dreams that God gave you best selling books ! It may take a while but you have to keep going ! Be gracious and dont quit ! Serve like Joseph and trust God … struggle now , faith forever, and bless God for eternity !
