Forging Ahead: Your Breakthrough Awaits
“For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
If you’re trusting God for something in your life, and the resistance has intensified, remember the enemy is trying to break you down. Don’t let him win! God gave the children of Israel the Promised Land and commanded them to go and claim it. He told them to be strong and exceedingly courageous, as their circumstances required great patience and faith.
When everything within you wants to give up, resist the urge. Instead, praise God and seek His guidance and provision. Sometimes, we have to endure a waiting period, which can be tough. Don’t lose sight of the glory of the assignment by losing patience and seeking something better. “For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing (James 1:3-4). The “here and now” might not be what you anticipated, but rest assured that you are exactly where you need to be. At the end of your rope, you’ll discover God’s grace. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. Your faith will grow strong as you trust in Him during challenging times. He is not finished with you yet.
Your Call to Action
Lean into God’s promises; His word never returns void. Trust in His timing and remain obedient to Him. He has a plan for your life that is far greater than you could ever imagine. Don’t let fear, doubt, or impatience hold you back from fulfilling your calling. Remember, the enemy will do whatever it takes to stop you from achieving God’s purpose for your life. Stay steadfast and persevere.
“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer” (Romans 12:12).
“But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience (Romans 8:25).
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6).
Father God, thank You for Your unfailing grace and mercy. Strengthen and fill us with Your peace as we walk through every life circumstance. Guide us with Your light. Let us start today with a new attitude. Help us not to pick up things we have already given to You. Open the doors You want us to walk through and close the ones You don’t. May we be a blessing to others on this journey. In Your name, we pray, Amen.
