Do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. (Hebrews 10:35, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Have you been praying and believing for something that seems like its taking a lot longer than you thought? Many times, people can miss Gods best simply because they give up before they see their due season come. Dont let that be you! Be encouraged today, your answer is closer than you think. If it seems like things are getting more difficult, remember, when the intensity heats up, that means you are closer to your victory. It always seems darkest just before the dawn arrives.
We serve a faithful God, and Hes working behind the scenes on your behalf. Dont cast away your confidence today because your reward is coming. And just like a new mother forgets about her labor pain once she is finally holding her newborn, youll forget about your struggle when you are holding on to your promise. While you are waiting, keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Wake up every morning and say out loud, Ive come too far to give up now. My due season is coming. I will reap my harvest. Stay in faith and look for His hand of blessing because He has promised you victory, and its closer than you think!
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, today I stand believing that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. Give me Your strength to stand in faith until I see every promise fulfilled in my life in Jesus name. Amen.
