BELIEVE THE PROMISE
Tuesday, 5 May 2015
“And being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform.” Romans 4:21 (KJV)
Your business, job or finances may not be at the level that you desire right now, but do you realize that you are also not where you used to be? If God brought you to where you are now, then know it that He is obligated to take you to the next level of your life, but you have to judge Him faithful. You must believe that His promises over your life will come to pass. When He made that promise to you, it was not to pull punches. He meant what He said. Your responsibility therefore is to believe the promise. Receive it and thank Him for the fulfilment.
I encourage you to stand firm in faith and in the place of prayers. Do not stop until you see the manifestation of everything you have believed God for. Oftentimes God will allow all flesh to be silent, so that no one will take His glory. So stop looking at impossibilities. Do not let the enemy garage you with fear because fear is a torment and one of devil’s age-long tricks of robbing people of their blessings. He who brought you this far is more than able to take you through to the end and even beyond. Be rest assured that God who made promises to you will remember you and do for you as He has said. Look at the life of Abraham. When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway. He decided to live, not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said he would do. Child of God it is not about you but about God who has spoken. Abraham didn’t focus on his age and say, “It’s hopeless nor did he survey Sarah’s decades of infertility and give up. He also didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously sceptical questions. Rather he plunged into the promise and came up strong. Being sure that God would make good what he had said.
God will continually watch over His word in your life to perform it. Indeed your story will change. Your gates shall be open continually. They shall not be shut day and night. God will cause you to laugh and show you a token of His goodness. I will hear your testimony.
