Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines...Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. (Habakkuk 3:1718, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
We all have dreams and goals that God has placed in our hearts, things were believing for, situations were praying will turn around. These promises start off like seeds. They dont come to pass overnight. Theres always a period of waiting involved. From the time we pray till the time we see it come to fulfillment, thats called the trial of our faith. This is when many people get discouraged and give up. They start believing the negative thoughts, Its never going to happen. Its taken too long. Now, that seed is lying there dormant, but its still alive. It still has potential. You have to do your part and start watering the seed. The way you water it is by thanking God in advance and declaring His Word. You cant wait until you receive the promise. You have to thank God that the answer is on the way!
Today, no matter what you are facing, know that God is greater than all of it. He has the answer and is working for your good behind the scenes. All through the day say, Father, thank You that whatever I touch prospers and succeeds. Thank You that Your favor surrounds me like a shield. Thank God in advance, water those seeds of faith, and take hold of every promise He has for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I choose to rejoice in You. No matter what my circumstances look like, I know You are greater than my circumstances. I trust that You are working behind the scenes to fulfill every one of Your promises in Jesus name. Amen.
