Tick tock; tick tock. . . Gradually the year is winding to an end. What’s on your mind. What has filled your thoughts these last few days? Uncertainties? Anger? Sadness? Grief? Anxiety? Feelings of no fulfilment?. . .
Truly, the year is almost over, but it’s not over for you. Job said in Job 14:7-9:
“For there is hope for a tree, If it is cut down, that it will sprout again, And that its tender shoots will not cease. Though its root may grow old in the earth, And its stump may die in the ground, Yet at the scent of water it will bud And bring forth branches like a plant.
I see God holding the watering can pouring out His abundant rain of blessings upon you. He is opening the floodgates of heaven upon you this season. You shall drink your fill. Whatever has gone down this year, God says, “Have faith!”
You have not been cut off. You are alive and that’s why you are reading this right now. You are still here. And that means only one thing: It is not yet over! Amen!
God is able to do just what He says He will do. Don’t you dare give up on Him. He’s all out to fulfill His promises to you. He’s not a man that He should lie, neither is He a son of man that He should repent of His words. God has spoken once; twice have I heard Him. What about you? All power belongs to our God! Hallelujah!
God will do your own. He will settle your case. He will not leave you stranded. He breaks protocols of men to bring His promise to pass. He will cause the lines to fall in pleasant places for you. He is an unchanging Changer. He specializes in doing the impossible.
You know, we are usually agitated because we don’t fully understand what God’s plans are for us and how He wants to go about it and when. The truth however is that His plans for us are good plans. That’s what should fill our hearts, it births hope in us. Let your belief system be taken over by the Word of God.
Hear God in Isaiah 55:8-13:
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater,
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
“For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; And it shall be to the Lord for a name, For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
God has the best in stock for you. Don’t stop trusting Him. Keep the faith!
