Discover God’s Dream
Pastor Don Barnes

It’s Complicated #1

(The Story of Joseph)


Genesis 37:5 (NLT) One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever.”


I. Take Action Toward My Purpose

Genesis 37:6 (NLT)

“Listen to this dream,” he said.”


II. Wait for God’s Timing With Passion

Genesis 41:43,46 (NLT)

Then he had Joseph ride in the chariot reserved for his second-in-command. And wherever Joseph went, the command was shouted, “Kneel down!” So Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of all Egypt… He was thirty years old when he began serving in the court of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. And when Joseph left Pharaoh’s presence, he inspected the entire land of Egypt.”


III. Overcome Dream Killers with Perseverance

Genesis 37:18-24 (NLT) 

“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!” But when Reuben heard of their scheme, he came to Joseph’s rescue. “Let’s not kill him,” he said. “Why should we shed any blood? Let’s just throw him into this empty cistern here in the wilderness. Then he’ll die without our laying a hand on him.” Reuben was secretly planning to rescue Joseph and return him to his father. 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.”


IV. Pursue God’s Cause for Other People 

Genesis 50:19-20 (NLT)  

But Joseph replied, “Don’t be afraid of me. Am I God, that I can punish you? You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.”
