I know sometimes you feel like giving up. Every new day there’s seems to be no change in your life. All the troubles of your heart and worries keep on worsening! You wonder why everything is happening to you. You keep on asking yourself why you’re not lucky like other people. You keep on praying to God but so far He hasn’t answered your prayers. Now you have started losing hope. You now think that maybe you were meant to be like that or maybe somebody cursed you. But I tell you what my friend? You weren’t meant to be like that and you weren’t cursed. God is silent but He watches you day and night. He listens to your prayers and He has something special for you. Just stay strong, focused, and hardworking and keep praying to God. Bear it in your minds that you’re not alone in that hard situation, we are all in the same boat of waiting patiently. So don’t give up my dear friend. Your time is coming soon.
One morning in a training that we were conducting somewhere in Embakasi barracks, I was having a chat with a Rwandese police officer and he told me that he wished to have a big body like mine, later in the evening while working out in the gym, the instructor cautioned me about my BMI which was far much high than accepted. Now, I wondered, some few years ago I was wishing for a big body and the desire was fulfilled to an extent that somebody is admiring the outcome but the problem is it’s abundantly more than I wished. When God will say yes to your prayer, the outcome will be exceedingly, abundantly, above more than you have ever wished or asked for.
It’s patience that brings forth the promise. Abraham and Sarah waited a long time for that child and at God’s appointed time, an angel was sent to bring the good news to them.
My friend, I want to tell you that God’s delay is not God’s denial.
It’s up to you and I to press through with patience. Patience is a virtue. Patience is power.
Just tell God, “Lord don’t let me let go of my promise and dreams because I’m tired of waiting on my promise.”
The time while you’re waiting is a time of learning, being strengthened and growing in faith. God will help us grow and mature this year and He will glorify Himself through our needs. He hears us when we call.
Often we wonder why something is taking so long, we get discouraged and think it’ll never happen.
The moment God put the dream in you He put a set time for its fulfillment. When you understand this you won’t get discouraged. You know the set time is the right time. Don’t listen to the lies that it’s never going to happen. As long as you keep believing it will happen, you know the promise is for you but when you look at the natural it seems it’ll never happen. You may wonder when your husband, Dad or brother will be born again, but, God has already set a time for each of your family members to come to Him.
In your future there is a set time for the fulfillment of your dreams;
Habakkuk 2:3 “For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come to pass.” [NKJV]
It will not be one second late, We don’t have to live frustrated because it’s not happening on our time table, You don’t have to worry that you are too old, Maybe you’re single but the person God picked out for you won’t be one second late.
When is the set time? The right time, the time best for you. We want it quick, fast and right now. Often we’re not prepared but as we wait with the right attitude God is able to do a work in us. The other person may not be ready. If you were to meet right now it wouldn’t work out.
When the lies tell you it will never happen, don’t believe them. Just say, “ I may not see a way but I know God has a way, God gave me the dream and He established a set time for it, I will wait earnestly for it in faith, It won’t be late at all, It will happen at the exact right time.”
Your set time could be this week or tomorrow morning.
In life we all have to wait, It’s through faith and patience that we inherit the promises. Wait with expectancy!
Just declare,” I won’t live upset and frustrated because God has already ordained it, It could happen today, I know there are set times in my future.”
What if I get my hopes up every day and it doesn’t happen; then I go to bed disappointed?
God is working behind the scenes in our lives whether we realize it or not, He is aligning up things for us,You may not see it but in a split second it’s going to come together. When it’s your due season no person can stop it.
The most difficult time is right before the victory, You can’t see anything good when you look up ahead, You’re tired and ready to give up? Don’t quit 50 metres before your destiny, you’ve come too far to stop now! Keep on keeping on! The Lord has heard your prayers, all these time that you have been crying , you have been in stress leading to depression, He was busy working and moulding the best things for you and now your season has come. Start rejoicing, start praising, wow, wow, start dancing and position yourself to receive exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond what you ever desired or asked for because He is coming to surprise you and prove to the nation that all this time He still loved you and had good plans for you. It’s your time! It’s your season!!!!
