Hi guys, I’m sorry I’ve been a bit AWOL. I had some issue to deal with but God has been faithful through them all. I am dedicating today’s post to a group of special people. By special people, I mean those who are waiting on God for something He promised. That makes all of us!
I call you special because it is counter-intuitive to hope against hope like Abraham did. I call you special because in a world that demands us to live by sight, you trust God enough to walk by faith. I call you special because against the wind of circumstance, you have chosen to heed the Master’s call to “come” and like Peter, you have left your comfort zone and stepped out of the boat. I call you special because like Caleb and Joshua, though you have seen the giants in your promised land, you believe that with God on your side, your opposition will only become your bread for tomorrow. I call you special because even though your implicit trust has been labelled as ludicrous by those around you, you have chosen to set your face towards Christ like a flint.
Why am I doing this now you may ask? It is because God gave me a word concerning a situation that seemed impossible to overcome from the natural senses. More than that, eight months ago, He showed me how certain events would play out. He probably did that because He knew my faith was not strong enough to go through the coming storm without me taking my eyes off Jesus and sinking in the process. In the place of prayer, He also showed me exactly when the situation would be resolved. Brothers and Sisters in Christ let me testify and say that God’s word came to pass in my life to the last letter. Everything unfolded just as He promised it would.
I cannot stand here and pretend as though I stood on His promises without shaking over the past eight months. I cannot deny that my faith wavered seriously in that time frame. I cannot say that I wasn’t tempted at some points to take matters into my own hands and try to ‘help’ God like Abraham did. I cannot say that there weren’t those very low points where I wondered where God was and if He truly gave me that word eight months ago. I cannot claim that people’s criticisms opinions about me regarding my belief in what He promised hurt real bad. It wasn’t an easy journey and it won’t be for you either. Always remember that a trial period will work things into your character and add deeper levels of intimacy to your relationship with God.
Here I am now. I am stunned by His faithfulness and the precision of His promise to me. It didn’t come a day earlier or later. It didn’t involve any intervention on my part. God did it all by Himself just as He promised me months ago.
Whatever it is that God has promised you as an individual, I want you to trust in Him with all your heart and not lean on your understanding. I want you to tap into the Spirit of prophecy in these words I have written and declare that if God can do it for this man then he can surely come through for me. The key is not to become fixated by the promise but rather by the One Who has promised. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and the rest will follow through naturally. Ladies and Gentlemen, our God will never fail. He is able to do that which He has promised. God bless you all.
until what he had said came to pass, the word of the LORD tested him. – Psalm 105:19
