?BEWARE OF DREAM KILLERS!
Can you now see a proof of what the prophet Jeremiah has been telling us since two days ago about putting our trust in God instead of man? Read an account of what happened between Joseph and his brothers in Gen 37. Notice that their hatred for him was because of his dreams (cf. Gen 37:19-20).
Beware of those you discuss your dreams and prospects with. Many people are out there looking for a way to pull you down. But if you have God for your stronghold, their evil intent and wicked counsel would only be drawing you nearer to achieving your dreams.
Try also not to join the wand of dream killers and prospect destroyers. Those who choose that path never end well. Consider what happened to those wicked tenants in Matt 21:41 in that light. The wicked tenants met with a wretched end. May such a wretched end not be your portion. Amen.
And may God give us the grace to overcome the lures of dreams killers especially those of them who pose as our siblings or friends. Amen.
I wish you an enlightened and victorious day ahead. It is well with you.
