“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"
Good Morning My Fellow Brothers and Sisters In The Lord,
Just wanted to encourage your hearts this morning; don’t give up nor be discouraged. No matter how it looks, God is with you and he will move for you in His perfect timing.
The devil is a liar, he is not in control but God is. Don’t give up your dream, your vision God gave you, your expectations of God, etc.; God is still in total control of your life. So what your prayers did not get answered when you prayed the first time; so what that pain in your body did not leave when you prayed the first time; so what when you exercised your faith for that thing you really wanted did not happen; because they did not happen, does this change who God is? Absolutely not! God is still God and He still is sitting on the throne, He is still abiding in you (remember, He can be in more than one place at a time), working and providing for you. How do I know? Because I know God is faithful like that. It is not over until God says it is over.
Wait on God for that answer you are looking for; for that miracle you need; for that financial breakthrough you so desperately need; don’t get ahead of Him – don’t move out of position before it is your time. Remember what happened to Saul in 1 Samuel 15:22-23 when he got ahead of God? He lost his kingdom in an instant and his life was never the same; he ended up dying out of God’s will all because he could not wait for God’s prophet to come.
During this season, the enemy is trying to get God’s people to move prematurely so they can abort the visions God has given them; don’t be fooled – wait on God. Pray before you make any moves during this hour – make sure that it is God who is telling you to move out - wait for God’s clear instructions. If possible, have someone to agree with you and you agree with them; it’s time to tag team the devil. Jesus said in Matthew 18:19-20 that if two on earth agree about anything they ask for, His Father in heaven will do it for them because He is in the midst; there is power in agreement. Therefore, agree with each other that you both will wait for God’s instructions before making a move. It’s no time now to commit spiritual abortion or spiritual suicide because the time is well spent and it is winding up.
I heard this person say, “Believe until you see it” and with their words this morning, I am telling you the same thing, “Believe until you see it;” wait until God brings it to pass – whatever it is - but remember, pray that God's will be done; God's will is what you want, not your will. 1 John 5:14-15 says:
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him (biblegateway.com - NKJV).
This verse of Scripture clearly shows that what we pray should be according to God's will! Think about it, do you really what something or somebody that God does not want you to have? I don't; don't care what it is or who it is!! I want to please God, not man and not my own flesh!!!
Isaiah 40:28-31 says:
28 “Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary (God is well able to take care of you). There is no searching of His understanding.
29 He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary and the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the Lord shall (this is a promise) renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” (www.biblegateway.com – NKJV).
Do you see? There is a blessing in waiting on God.
My brothers and sisters, I pray that God will encourage your hearts this morning; that His peace will guard your mind and hearts; that He gives you His supernatural strength and ability so you can wait on Him, in the name of Jesus. Because I know in due season (in God’s timing) you will reap, if you faint not.
In my closing, I want to say, gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and be vigilant, because your adversary the devil is walking about as a roaring loin, seeking whom he may devour. Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God by casting all your cares on Him because He cares for you. I mean all your cares, everything that is causing you to lose focus on God – when you are suppose to be meditating on God, that thing in your heart is rising up – cast it upon God – give it to Him – He can carry it better than you can. That is what causes you to resist the devil by being steadfast in your faith (1 Peter 5:6-9).
1 Peter 4:12-13 tell us:
12 “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy” (www.biblegateway.com – NKJV).
So you see, what you are going through is not strange; it happened to the saints before you and is happening to them today all over the world – you are not alone in your suffering. That is why it is so important for us to band together and pray for each other; touch and agree with each other. Ecclesiastes 4:9 says: “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed (biblegateway.com - NKJV). Your brothers and sisters everywhere are going through, so let’s pray for each other and with each other.
I know in my own life, if I have a pressing issue, when I begin to focus on God or on helping others, it decreases that thing in my life; I even forget about it sometimes.Therefore I believe, if you take your eyes off your situations and help someone else (when and if you can), God will bless you and take care of your needs; when we make things happen for others, God will make things happen for us.
I pray you have been blessed by this word from the Lord this morning; it is my desire to encourage God’s people and lift them up when I can.
