In HIS Presence


Read: GENESIS 37:1-11

Meditation verse:

“Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, “look, I have dreamed another dream…” (Genesis 37: 9).

Before you can live out your dream, you must become aware of it. You must first catch a revelation of what it will look like. How do you become aware of it? One way is by God revealing it to you. God revealed Joseph’s great future to him in a dream. Joseph dreamt that his brothers and parents bowed down to him. God can show you your dream by speaking to your spirit. Suddenly you become aware of who you are meant to be or what you are meant to be accomplish.
You can also become aware of your dream by envisioning it. To envision is to build up an image of a desired future. It is imagining or visualizing a future possibility. Envisioning is a spiritual as well as a psychological concept. The power behind it is: ‘we become what we see because we are teaching the brain to move towards what it has seen’. The brain captures a picture of what the eyes have seen and wills the body to move towards it. Abraham envisioned his greatness before it happened. God said to him after Lot had separated from him, “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are – northward, southward, eastward, and westward, for all the land which you see, I will give to you and your descendants forever. And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth, so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered. Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you” (Gen 13:14-17).

Next, you must make happen what you have become aware of. You must create what you have envisioned. Come up with a plan of action and set goals and timelines for what you want to accomplish. Be sure to take steps each day that move you towards your dream. if you don’t take steps to accomplish it, it remains ‘just a good plan’. People do not wander around mount Everest and get to the top. Every worthwhile venture in life began with a dream and then a step of faith. Are you living your dream?


IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye.
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
