My Surprise Lilies ~ lovely foliage is all you get in the Spring, then suddenly the lilies sprout in Summer
Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?
Does God ever have to take you back to the drawing board, so to speak? Those times when you grab a hold of a word of promise from Him, only to find yourself letting go of it when the circumstances convince you otherwise.
When God makes a promise, He doesn’t change His mind, nor does delay render it null and void. When God promises, He means what He says.
‘Did I not say to you’ is as trustworthy in the promise stage as it is at the fulfillment. We must believe God’s faithfulness and the certainty of His word.
Blessings in believing!
One more time
Do I climb this rocky hill,
Bowed down with care.
One more round
Of travailing before
Your throne in prayer.
One more chance
Of pleading breakthroughs
For all of my needs.
One more time
Of entrusting everything
To You on my knees.
Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
Have you ever reached the point in praying about a matter where you feel like giving up? Where no matter how many times you have pleaded for a breakthrough, one does not come?
What if just one more time of travailing before God in prayer is the very time He intervenes?
Although it is difficult to keep believing when answers are delayed, God wants us to keep asking. Climb that rocky hill, and give the matter to God one more time. Keep seeking Him. Watch what God will do!
