Topic: He Will Certainly Show Up On Your Behalf [Thursday January 25th, 2018]
“And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” Romans 4:21 (KJV)
Yes, I know that what you are passing through at the moment may look overwhelming, but the truth is that God is actually preparing you for the glory which shall manifest in due time. Go to bed and relax because He has your back covered. He did not bring you this far to abandon you.
Let us look at the story of the Patriarch Abraham who is today called the father of faith and glean some lessons from his life. When God promised him a son, from every human standpoint, it was not feasible. Abraham was well advanced in age and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. In fact, everything looked impossible for the word of God to come to pass. The more impossible it looked, the more reassuring God was. And for the next twenty-five years, all Abraham had to hold on to was the promise. It got to a point Sarah even prevailed upon him to help God. He took a shortcut and gave birth to Ishmael and no sooner was Ishmael conceived that trouble began in his home, to the extent that he had to let go of his son that he got through the shortcut.
Beloved, why contemplate going through a shortcut like Abraham did? Please wait for God’s timing. It may appear long but like the Psalmist rightly said, weeping may endure through the night but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5 KJV).
There is an appointed time for everything. Just continue to love Him! Continue to trust Him even when you have not seen the physical manifestation yet. Never allow yourself to be discouraged. Don’t swallow the lies of the devil that God has forgotten you. He does not forget. It is impossible for Him to forget. God is not only desirous of lifting you up, He is also willing to do everything to keep you on top of life. Get set for your miracle for it shall surely come to pass. Today, your morning of joy has come. The Lord has chosen to remember you.
