When Joseph dreamed his dream, he didn’t keep quiet about it; he began speaking to his brothers about it. He began confessing his dream; he began painting the picture of his dreams with words. That dream was not about to be fulfilled immediately; how it was going to be fulfilled was not even immediately discernible, but he spoke about the dream all the same. He used his words to push forth his dream. He spoke his dream into being.
Friend, God says, speak your dream. Don’t be silent about the dream that God has planted in you. Speak about it; confess it; declare it; shout it at the rooftops; say it even if it annoys your haters and contemporaries. Life and death are in the power of the tongue; so use your tongue to give life to your dream; use your words to grow your dream; use what you say to promote your dream. Let your words advertise your dream.
The confession of your dream might look like a big joke, but it will orchestrate the fulfillment of your dream if you don’t quit speaking about it. The confession of your dream might look like foolishness to those who do not understand the power of the tongue, but keep speaking it until it becomes your reality. As Joseph used his tongue in favour of his dream, use your tongue in favour of your dream. Don’t speak against your dream.
Joseph’s brothers heard his dream, and they sold him into slavery. Joseph eventually affirmed that though they meant it for evil, God meant it for good. So the confession of his dream triggered the beginning of events and arrangements that led to its fulfillment. When you speak your dream, you are simply sending God, fellow mortals and the elements of nature on assignment to see to it that your dream becomes reality.
Speak your dream even if your haters hate to hear it. Speak your dream so that arrangements for its fulfillment will begin in earnest. Speak your dream, and it will be fulfilled in a matter of time.
