When you turn on the news -- as my mom would say -- "The devil's busy". Coronavirus cases are increasing while people refuse to wear masks. People are pulling guns at Chipotle and fighting over parking spaces. Businesses are opening up one day and closing the next because people refuse to wear masks. Even with social distancing rules in effect, kids are having coronavirus parties to see who can get the coronavirus first! Really?
Despite all that's going on in the world, we serve a loving Father God who changes NOT. God is always present, always knowing and always faithful. And, God is saying in this season, "I want you to get excited for what God's about to do". But, how can you get excited when all you SEE is chaos, riots, racism and violence. Here's how...
As we were posting this, the Holy Spirit said, "The miracle is coming". Watch and see. God is faithful and He WILL provide.
What's lost is painful but what's left is powerful. Watch this important message from Pastor Jentezen Franklin about the importance of what remains.
Seeing It FIRST In Your Mind...
My mom would always have a great way to cheer me up if I was ever down. She'd say something like "I'm going to bake cookies when I get home". And, man, that was it. I started dancing and singing and getting all excited. I could SEE those yummy cookies on a plate and I could SEE the tall glass of milk, too. But, the funny thing was, when she started making the cookies, you couldn't SEE anything. There was no physical evidence, i.e., an actual cookie. The only things you could SEE were a lot of ingredients like a stick of butter and sugar in a bowl.
I got SO excited about my mom baking cookies that whenever I SAW the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl I'd get excited IN ADVANCE. I KNEW she was going to make something good soon. It didn't matter that it wasn't ready. It didn't matter that I didn't know what kind of cookies they were or how long they would take to get out of the oven. All I knew was that they were on the way. And, that's the anticipation we need to have with God.
Keep moving forward in God and don't move back. Here's an inspiring message from Dr. Winston about our Comforter, Jesus. We are more than conquerors because we serve the Most High God who is here to help US.
Good Surprises and Restoration are on the Way...
You see, God doesn't work in time and He can bless us anytime He wants to. And, we've been fasting and praying and being obedient. We've been trying to get to bed by 9:30 pm or 1am at the latest so we can get up and pray to Father God and praise Him. It pleases God when we do this and we're about to receive blessings from Him. Father God has so many surprises in store for His people it's just a matter of time. But, you might ask, how do I know this?
A few things:
Ye Them That Wait Upon the Lord...
There's so much that God wants for His people but He has to get a lot of us "caught up" so we can help advance God's kingdom. There are some that are behind because the devil tried to delay them. Then there are people who might have lost faith or lost sight because of all the delays but remember - God is faithful.
Don't Give Up and Don't Worry. God Will ALWAYS Make the Way...
Keep reading your Bible and praying and praising God. Keep doing things that add value and stay encouraged. Watch what you say so you don't fall for the devil's schemes - he'll fall into his own trap. Keep believing in God for the victory and keep SEEING the blessings coming in supernaturally so you don't doubt or give up. Like me with the cookies, even though there was only sugar and butter in the bowl I SAW myself ALREADY enjoying the cookies. SEE the victory in EVERY area of your life where you need it. And, keep SEEING it until it becomes manifest.
I pray Father God sends you signs so you can hold to His Word. Keep praying in tongues daily so He can reveal it to you. Whatever you need, remember to say, "It's no problem for God" so He can bring it to pass. We're in a new season where our faith can move mountains - and avalanche blessings can spring forth. Believe for what you need and as the Holy Spirit has mentioned previously, "When you see what God does, don't look back". The Lord will ALWAYS make the way - Glory to God!
We'll leave you with the following Bible verses:
P.S. No word of God EVER fails. Oh, Lord...How excellent is Thy Name in ALL the earth!
