SPRING FORTH NOW
And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan. These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report. Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours. And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more. And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed: For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf. And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
As we engage the issues of our lives it becomes more difficult to Reframe Your Issues if you have a predisposition to operate in low self-esteem. As you value yourself, so will you value your abilities, the expressed confidence in what you possess to engage the issues of your life and be victorious in your efforts. Remember in order for us to Soar, to live in the fullness of God’s promises for our lives, there must be the realization that we are not alone, we have been and are reconciled to God, His Word and thus we are one with Him and with Him, nothing and no one can stand before us. Our healthy confidence, self-esteem, is connected to our ability to understand and know that our value is not tied to what other people, places, or things think about us, instead it is what we think about who we are as God has declared us to be. When we Soar in who God has ordained and called us to be, we can see each and every experience, issue through the lens of the fulfillment of God’s promises for our lives. Therefore, Reframe Your Issues not in alignment to what people, places, and things think or say but instead to the fulfillment of your promise.
