This verse has meant so much to me and one I have clung to for a very long time. God speaks. He gives us the promise. And then we hold tight to it and believe with all of our heart. It’s not easy, sometimes it’s darn right painful! We question ourselves and we’re afraid. But precious one if you just dare to believe, keep pressing in and never give up He will bless you, and He will do what he has promised you in dark.
So often I think we believe the lies of the enemy instead of the truth of God’s word. We hear the whispers of
“Its never going to change.”
“Things will always be this way.”
“I’ll never be healthy.”
“I’ll never get pregnant.”
“I’ll never find a husband.”
Insert whatever your situation is. But the truth is if we keep believing, keep speaking God’s word over our circumstances we will see his promises come to pass in his time. Call those things that be not as though they are!
So what promises are you holding on to? Has God whispered things to your heart in the dark, ones that have yet to come to pass? Ones that you can’t possibly accomplish without Him? DREAM BIG!! ARE YOU PREPARING FOR RAIN? Have you seen the movie Facing the Giants? I love the part in it where they tell the story of the 2 farmers. That story reminds me of our faith in action. Here’s an excerpt from the movie:
“There were two farmers who desperately needed rain, and both of them prayed for rain. But only one of them went out and prepared his fields to receive it.
Mr. Bridges: Which one do you think trusted God to send the rain?
Coach Taylor: the one who prepared his fields for it?”
Mr. Bridges: Which one are you? God will send the rain when He is ready. You need to prepare your field to receive it.
Are you preparing for rain? Are getting ready for God’s blessings to flow? Begin preparing, calling those things that be not as though they are. Having visual reminders of what God has promised you also keeps your faith stored up. Whatever situation you find yourself in, it’s not to big for God! He is not caught off guard. He’s saying hang on precious one, I’ve got this! He does wonderful things and He’s waiting to do wonderful things for you! Things you have yet to see and things you can’t imagine.
Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us.
Blessings and hugs,
