Then God remembered Rachel; he listened to her and enabled her to conceive. (Genesis 30:22, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Our God is so loving, so merciful, so faithful. Even when we become too discouraged to believe, God does not forget what He promised. Maybe you feel discouraged today. Maybe your life hasnt turned out the way you had hoped. Maybe you prayed, believed and worked hard, and it didnt work out. Now youre thinking, Hey, Im never going to be happy again. Ill never be married. Ill never accomplish my dreams.
Remember today, not only does God remember you, He remembers the promise He placed within you. He knows what Hes destined you to do. You may have already said, Forget it; its never going to happen. The good news is that you dont have the final say. God has the final say, and He says, What I started in your life, Im going to finish. That dream you gave up on, God didnt give up on. He remembers you, and He is with you, leading you and guiding you to the place of victory.
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your faithfulness even when I am unfaithful. Thank You for drawing me close to You when I feel discouraged. Today, I choose to lift up my eyes to You for You are my source of strength and help. You are the Author and Finisher of my faith in Jesus name. Amen.
