“Leave all to the LORD; trust in Him; He will do it.” Psalm 37:5 (JPS)
You are about to see the fulfillment of God’s promise to you for this season in your life, but you must stay in faith and refuse to doubt even when the circumstances don’t seem to line up with the promise. This is the time when we learn that our experiences do not invalidate the word of God, but God’s word stands the test of time and crisis. I know that you are at the point of giving up, but you must not quit because God is about to do it and in a big way.
In Proverbs 19:21, we are told, “Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand (ESV)."
I know that you think that you have to make things happen since God is taking too long, but be assured that your striving and meddling in the divine plan of God will only make things worse. If you think that I’m wrong then please tell me what happened the last time you tried to help God out? In our walk with God we have to come to a place of rest and trust which leaves the results to God instead of limited human effort. The writer of Hebrews tell us that a whole generation failed to experience the fulfillment of God’s promises because they didn’t mix “the word with faith (see Hebrews 4:2)," but instead they allowed their experiences to invalidate the word of God in their hearts.
Today, you have to make a choice. Will you trust God to lead you to your promised land or will you once again try to go your own way and miss out on God’s best for your life? I encourage you to trust God because if He made the promise then He can fulfill the promise.
