‘Wait patiently, for it will surely take place.’ Habakkuk 2:3 NLT
Has God promised you something and humanly speaking you see no way it can come to pass? Are you having a hard time waiting? Read this Scripture: ‘If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place.’ God does things on schedule, and your appointment is still on His calendar. Be assured that nothing the enemy does can pre-empt the plan of God for your life. When He gives you a promise, it’s like a seed. First it must fall into the fertile soil of faith and be given time to grow. Then it must be watered regularly through prayer and the Word of God. It won’t come to pass because you push and try to manipulate: ‘You will succeed, not by military might or by your own strength, but by My spirit.’ (Zechariah 4:6 KJV)
If God has promised you something, stand on His Word and remind yourself, ‘My life can’t end before this comes to pass.’ The story of Joseph’s life could be summed up in this Scripture: ‘Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the Lord tested him.’ (Psalm 105:19 NKJV) Why test something? To reveal its strength; to see if it holds up or falls apart under pressure. What has God promised you? Do you believe Him? How strong is your faith? If it’s weak, God will put you back into the school of faith so you can learn the lessons, pass the tests, and graduate. ‘Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder.’ (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV) The word for you today is: keep believing God, and it will happen.
