Principle #2: God’s vision for your life will not always please others.
Poor Joseph. All that vision and all that hateraid from his family. The fact is that not everyone, even some of your closest family and friends, will be happy with what God is doing in your life. That can be a hard pill to swallow unless we wash it down with a little biblical truth: Jesus is Lord, not your family or friends. The value of your God-given dream is determined by the God who gave it, not the people around you who don’t “get” it. Let’s be honest:
99% 100% of the time the dreamer doesn’t completely understand God’s dream for him or her either. Rest in God’s faithfulness.
