Maybe the business deal you are waiting for hasn’t gone through, or the opportunity you have been praying for is not here yet, or even the right person hasn’t come into your life however, don’t start looking to the left or to the right, look ahead! What is ahead of you is greater than what is behind you. God does not want to just meet your needs or give you the desires of your heart; He wants to fill your storehouse with exceedingly, abundantly type of blessings that surpass all the you can ask, think or imagine!
We have no reason to fear because not only has our Father redeemed us and made us whole, but we have been individually named and adopted as God’s own.
Obedience is your responsibility; the outcome is Gods.
God didn’t choose you so you would fail. He chose you so that you would bear fruit, a fruit that would last. (John 15:8) God chose YOU and he didn’t make a mistake when He chose YOU. God is calling you to step into a new level of authority and anointing where it seems that others are better equipped. Nonetheless, rest in the fact that when you feel inadequate or insecure, God has selected you to do what He has called you to.
There are five gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and YOU. Most people will never read the first four and will only read the last one. Will your gospel be worth reading?
What if the thing that is holding you captive is just an indication of the calling that is inside of you and if it ever got loose or if it ever got free, it might change the world.
You see, hope rises when we come together. The enemy could have kept their feet from moving but He could not keep Paul’s and Silas’ voice from singing. Their praise broke their chains! Their perspective wasn’t connected to their pain; it was connected to their purpose. Hope is what causes us to believe that our setbacks are merely setups for greater things than we could ever imagine.
Sometimes when you are not seen, God is saving you for something so special that He hides you to protect you and preserve you.
It is the things that no one sees that produce everything that everyone wants. Keep doing what you are do with a greater awareness of what Christ is doing in you. You don’t need a “new and improved” assignment to experience a greater anointing. God will increase your strength in the demands of the situation.
Patience is not a feeling; it is a daily decision. When you have the ability to endure resistance and/or you stay in the fire, you are exhibiting patience. This is definitely easier said than done and in order to confidently walk in patience, you need to prepare.
It is very easy to get weary in the process and begin to wonder if God really promised you something. Worry not and begin to rejoice because, our God does not waver and he will fulfill what He promised in His timing not yours. Sometimes God will stop the flow of manna and will shut down the sky in order to reveal to you His calling. You may be in a famine or in a drought in your life but you will never have a lack in the word of God. He is always speaking to you where you are (through what you have and what you don’t have). God does not want you to depend on something that does not have his support in Him.
We get switched up and we think that we are waiting on God to respond and He is really waiting on us to respond. God is not obligated to give you all the details. He wants to see where the root of our confidence and trust is at.
