"Do not despair!
The Mighty Hand of God will rescue you!
I know Yahweh gives me all that I ask for and brings victory to his anointed King. My deliverance cry will be heard in his holy heaven. By his mighty hand miracles will manifest through his saving strength."
Psalms 20:6 TPT
Is there something God has promised you, but you have not yet seen it come to fruition? Have you felt close to giving up on his promise? Or doubt what you heard?
The timing of God is such a mystery to me. I’ve seen him work in the lives of others and in myself over and over again, but usually his timing of that work is very different than what I imagined.
"Know, recognize, and understand therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, Who keeps covenant and steadfast love and mercy with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations,"
We are so blessed, each one of us. We woke up this morning, we took breath in our lungs and we said, "Thank you God, that you have given me this day." What a faithful God we serve, that HE is always good.
He keeps everyone of his words, and He cannot lie. Not only does He care about you, He cares about your children, and your children's children and their children and so on.
How have you experienced His faithfulness? I'll share just one of mine.
Many years ago, I was experiencing one of those times (and I've had more than you know) where there was as they say, "More month than there was dollars." But I knew that the Lord was going to take care of me. He has always, and has never stopped. When I was at church, I asked someone to pray with me over my finances, asking the Lord to meet those needs. And then I let it go, but just kept waiting. My rent was due, and I was exactly $37 short.
The day I had to pay rent, I headed to the mailbox and kept thanking the Lord for what I needed. Do you know what I found? There was a money order that was addressed to me, no return address and no way for me to know who it was from, but it was for exactly $37.00. This is a true story. I was absolutely dumbfounded. I was able to pay all my rent that day, and God has never ever failed to meet my needs.
Does that mean I don't need to ask Him? No, I do ask but I thank Him because I already know He knows my every need before I can ask.
I'd like to challenge you to take the time today to remember and even write down and journal how the Lord has blessed you. Bless Him, Praise Him.
