Unfortunately, we are not privy to God’s exact timeline and I know it can be frustrating when we experience setback after setback. I know some of you are at the point where you believe that you’re overdue for a win because you have taken enough losses. If I am speaking to you through this message, the good news is your greatest blessings are always in front of you and your time is indeed coming!
I get it, waiting for God’s blessings to manifest is not for the faint at heart. Usually it requires a lot grit and in the book of Acts we can certainly learn how to stay in the game by gleaning from Paul and Silas reactions to their pain and suffering. Both of them demonstrated how shifting their focus from pain to hope will usher in God’s perfectly grafted and choreographed blessings.
When they were stripped, beaten, chained, and jailed, they did not cry out to God, but instead rejoiced, worshiped, and sang. They celebrated the ‘in due season’ knowledge that God’s promises to them would be fulfilled despite their current situation.
This supernatural response demonstrated their unwavering faith in God and trust in His word as they anticipated His blessings that were yet to come.
My word of encouragement for you is to stop recoiling during seasons of adversity and start anticipating that God’s promises will manifest and be fulfilled by praising Him for what is yet to come and by remembering these words: “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary” Isaiah 40:31.
Today, make a conscientious effort to turn your right now blues into tomorrow’s blessings by falling into the arms of the God that knows, sees, and cares!!
“All that’s required is that you really believe and do not doubt in your heart” Mark 11:23.
