This is another one of those books that you don’t just read and put it away. This is a book requiring a reread to study and absorb all that it has to offer. I have added to my “second read 2015”. (complete list coming soon!) Loved it!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“Step into God’s divine blessing and fulfill your dreams! Are you ready to see your dreams go from vision to fulfillment? To see God’s promised blessings revealed in your life? Join Jordan Rubin and Dr. Pete Sulack as you discover how Joseph endured incredible opposition and persecution, only to be elevated to a key position of influence and watch his dream come to pass before his very eyes.
You’ll unlock the powerful secrets that will take your dreams from birth to fulfillment. In this easy-to-follow process, you will learn how to protect your dream during seasons of adversity, resurrect vision when you believe it is dead, have hope even when you feel like your dream is impossible, and watch God miraculously fulfill your life purpose through your God-given dreams.”
This is a motivating book that is based on the OT person of Joseph – the favored son of Jacob. From the telling of his life in the book of Genesis, we know that Joseph had many God-given prophetic dreams. And while those dreams got him into a heap of trouble with his brothers… those dreams, given by God came to fruition whereby nations were saved.
In this book, the authors take a look at the parallels between dreams they have been given by God for their ministries of making disciples throughout the world with the dreams and reality of the life of Joseph. The lessons learned by the authors serve as the basis for the lessons outlined in seven of the chapters.
We first have to learn and know deep in our heart that we are His favorite. Once we learn and abide in that knowledge, we can seek to be used by God to change the world with our own God-given dreams. In our identity of His favorite, He will use that identity to shape our dream. With that in mind, the chapters discuss how following our dream can often lead to persecution. But know that that persecution confirms that you are following God. Sometimes we face the death of our dream. This too is a reminder that we cannot do anything in our own strength and that to have the greatest strength, we have to surrender to Him. And once surrendered to Him, you will find fulfillment and purpose while experiencing the Joseph Blessing.
My favorite chapter was “Don’t birth Ishmael” (chapter 8). I’ve known and worked for a few ministry leaders that gave birth to Ishmael, rather than ”Lay Down Your Isaac” (chapter 9). The lesson I learned in all of these chapters was a blessing for sure.
