What has God promised you? Have you been waiting a long time to see it come to pass? Does it feel like it may never happen?
I've got good news for you. Well, the Lord does! Today in my quiet time, I was asking the Lord to speak to me through His Word, as I do each time. Today, especially was encouraging because so many verses leaped off the page at me - to encourage, strengthen and reinforce ALL God has spoke to us.
When you are believing for a God's size dream... one that doesn't match your wallet, you come across lots of critics, "border-bullies" as Bruce Wilkinson calls them in his Dream Giver book. Often, they don't mean to be critical - what we have found is that sometimes they can't understand our walk. Well, that's true for us too at times. Our walk is just that, it's our walk. We walk it out the best we can with the words God speaks to us and with His written word to increase our faith. Occasionally he sends a prophetic word to confirm what we are hearing. I know this passage I have posted is a long one, but there are so many good nuggets. I've bolded them, but will highlight them again at the end. Before you read it, would you stop a moment and ask God to speak to you, to give you an answer to prayer and direction for something you need His wisdom on? His Word is living and active and can come to life in your heart, if you allow it.
