The Dreams Giver

"They said to one another, "Here comes this dreamer. Come now, let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits. Then we will say that a fierce animal has devoured him, and we will see what will become of his dreams.”- Bereshit / Genesis 37:19-20

It all begins with a dream that Adonai gives you. A dream too daring and too arrogant for anyone that might hear about it. Every time people hear you talking about it, whether they say it to you or not, they all think "Is he (she) to reign over us? Is he (she) to rule over us? To lead US? Doesn't he know he's 50 years too early for that?" But you can't help it. You had a dream and whether it sounds too daring or too arrogant or too impossible, worthy of rebuke by the spiritual leaders even, you can't help it. You didn't chose your dream. Adonai has implanted it deep in your heart and you can't get it out anymore no matter how much effort you focus into the process. Due to the excitement caused by the dream you start telling others about it and they're not blind, they see the reality of the moment and that there is no chance on Earth for something like that to happen so they begin to see you either too proud or too ridiculous for thinking that among all the people more able than you to accomplish anything, Adonai chose you, etc. 
When Yosef had his dream, he was 17 years old. He was immature, weak and a tattletale, but with a burning desire to do his father's will, so when his father sends him to his brothers, Yosef is ready to go without knowing he wasn't ready at all.
More often than not, when you receive the dream you truly believe you're perfect the way you are otherwise why would God chose you, but nothing prepares you for the next step: to be unclothed of your shine and thrown into a pit to die. When that happens, there is a conflict within you. "This is not happening to me! I just received a dream from Adonai!" They take you out of the pit and sell you off as a slave to those 'inferior' to you and as you walk behind a camel through the desert you keep mumbling "This can't be true! I was suppose to be a leader! I was suppose to rule not to be ruled! I was suppose to receive honor not humility!" And you do that until you get tired of mumbling and you start believing that those that mocked your dream were right: your dream is ridiculous! You start knowing for a fact that the road you're on leads exactly in the opposite direction from your dream.
Disappointment makes you humble, which trust me: it's good for you. And as you begin to see your condition you continue to grow and the more you grow you understand that you're still not ready and that you'll never be ready. But the fulfillment of the dream had never had anything to do with you being ready or not, it has to do only with the One that gave it to you. Adonai couldn't do anything with you as long as you thought you were ready, but once you understand your condition then you can see that He doesn't need your help to fulfill your dream. Adonai did amazing things with people that were not ready, like Moshe (Moses) that kept begging Adonai to chose someone else.
When you receive a dream your enemy starts dreaming also no matter how much of a realist he thinks he is. And he will dream of killing your dream. What he doesn't know is that his plan to kill your dream is the exact tool that Adonai will use to fulfill your dream.
Hasatan (satan) is horrified not by your dream but by The One who gave it to you. He hates The Dreams Giver and in consequence he hates the dreams He gives. The enemy cannot destroy The Dreams Giver so he will try to destroy you by throwing you into a pit thinking to himself "now let's see what will become of his(her) dreams!" What he isn't able to see is that Adonai laughs and says "Thank you! The pit is exactly where he(she) was suppose to end up! This was exactly the next step towards the dream!"
I'm not talking about dreams like having a certain car or becoming a billionaire, but dreams that Adonai gives, the sort of dreams that He fulfills even if it looks like He failed.
It might be a really long line of failures and every time you'll feel that you've never been so low, you'll find out that there is lower than low and you'll get there too. Maybe you even start taking it personally and assume that Adonai has something against you or that He's set out to destroy you, but actually He had brought you exactly where you need to be in order to see your dream fulfilled.
 Wherever you find yourself, don't lose your hope. If you've just received your dream, then come down to earth and brace yourself because you're about to be thrown in to a pit. If you're in the pit, wait for the caravan. If you're in Potiphar's house, relax because you won't be there forever and you can get worse than that. If you're in prison, don't lose your smile and keep supporting other people's dreams because they will remember you when the time is right. If they just called you to interpret Pharaoh's dreams, smile because this is just the beginning. And just as a small reminder: when you do get to see your dream fulfilled and your brothers come to bow before you, remember that you have to show them the kind of kindness worthy of the position God placed you in.
