Having a tough day, tough week, maybe even a tough couple of weeks? We’ve all been there at one point or another. It seems as if you’ve been waiting and waiting on things to get better only for things to get worst. You’ve tried keeping a positive attitude. You’ve prayed about it. You’ve gone to church. You’ve even cracked open a bible a few times. You start thinking maybe you drew the short stick in life or at least that’s what it feels like, anyway.
When is your breakthrough the Pastor talked about coming? When is God going to show up in your life? Things are happening for everyone around you but when is IT going to happen for you? That new job, new car, relationship, when will everything you’ve prayed and worked so hard for happen for you?
The scripture tells us: “For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” (Habakkuk 2:3)
God is not a man that he shall lie. You know what that means? God doesn’t lie. It’s IMPOSSIBLE. If God placed that vision in your heart, he will ensure that it comes to pass. Maybe not today, tomorrow or next week but IT WILL HAPPEN. Have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe you’re not yet ready for your blessing? Maybe this waiting period is God’s way of preparing you for what’s to come? Everyone wants to be successful but very few want to actually put in the work.
You want that perfect relationship but you’re still carrying baggage from your past. We have to learn to TRUST THE PROCESS. Trust his perfect timing. Allow him to work some things out in your life. I realize this is much easier said than done but you have to know that your destiny has already been determined. You’re a child of God. He said you would be the HEAD and not the tail and you must believe that. Sure you thought you would be much further along in your career by now. Yes people turned their back on you. You may be lonely and on top of that your bank account looking funny. God sees and knows all of this. This is no surprise him. You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be when you’re supposed to be there. He knows your struggle and he will see you through it. It’s all a part of his perfect plan for you. He’s equipping you. He’s molding you. He’s building character. He’s building resilience. He’s making you better. Don’t let minor tests stop you from a major testimony. Whatever obstacle you’re facing, I challenge you to give it over to God today. Trust that he will stand by his word and carry you through. He has never left you before and he won’t leave you now. Keep working. Continue striving. God is faithful. He’s working on your behalf. IT WILL HAPPEN!
