I know there are a lot of you who are probably doubting God and doubting yourself right now. I want to encourage you all to keep holding on. Don’t give up, because your time for increase is coming. Please understand God is constantly moving and constantly working and that he is ALL knowing. God has a plan for us all. “Worldly” standards of where we are supposed to be in life and what we’re supposed to be doing at a certain age, and how race and backgrounds play into it are not the same standards that God has for us. WE need to all learn to trust GODS timing and HIS plan for our lives not our own timing or the timetable set by society. When God says that your ready you’re ready, when He says it’s time, it’s time, when He says go, go, not your will, not your time, or anyone else’s. He knows all, not you. Trust in Him. A lot of us are questioning God at this particular point in our life and wondering is He hearing us and wondering why we aren’t increasing and moving up in life at the rate we feel like we should be. WE get so focused on the FUTURE, (myself included) and start looking 10 steps ahead and we lose sight of what is right in front of us. WE need to all understand that to move forward in life we have to be FAITHFUL where we are and with what we have NOW. Make no mistake about it, God desires to move us up in life but He won’t move us up in life if He sees that we aren’t faithful with what we currently have. God needs to KNOW that if He moves you up to the next step in your life that you won’t dip out on Him. (This comes from building a healthy and strong relationship with God.)I had been praying and asking God to bless me with job for like a month and some change because I was broke as a joke. I felt like it was definitely time for me to have a job and a steady income but God knew that I was not ready at that moment. He knew that I wasn’t ready for more money and a steady income at that point in my life because the little bit of money that He was blessing me with I was only using to get high…So He knew and I knew that if I was getting a steady income at that stage of my life the amount of drugs I was buying was only going to increase. So He waited until He could trust me before blessing me with a job. It took some time, a lot longer than I would have liked but in the end I know it all worked out for my good. God’s timing is always perfect; no it may not always line up with OUR personal time table but it is still perfect! It really showed me that God is never late, He is ALWAYS on time. The same goes for you. Be faithful where you are now. Faithful at your job, in your relationship, in your studying, in your practicing, whatever it is that you’ve got going on in life be faithful NOW and take care of business NOW before you start looking deep into the future. Do everything with excellence now with whatever you’ve got and put God 1st. Let your ACTIONS, THOUGHTS, and WORDS show and prove that once God blesses you and gives you the increase you’ve been praying for that you and Gods relationship will get better and stronger and not weaker. Put it in is His hands, ask for everything to be done on HIS time. God knows exactly what He’s doing and He knows exactly when to move us up. I know there are a lot of us, myself included who feel like we should be living out our dreams and that we’re ready for the” big leagues” NOW but we need to understand that God has everything under control. WE have to learn to sit back and be patient. WE need to understand God is moving in us. He is constantly molding and shaping us and that He’s just working out some kinks right now. God understands that there’s still a lot that we need to learn and go through before we can go any further so that once we do arrive at that next level we will be fully prepared and can be productive! Pray for patience, pray for HIS will to be done in your life. Trust God and His timing. Keep dreaming big, and don’t let the world or the haters and naysayers get to you. Don’t doubt God and don’t give up on Him or yourself. Understand God can do things that the world deems “impossible”. Prime example of someone with haters was David. When he went out to fight Goliath people were telling him he was too young, too small, too this , too that but David had faith in GOD and knew that he would deliver him from Goliath, and that is exactly what happened. He didn’t listen to the haters and the naysayers and not go fight because of what they said; he followed GOD and trusted him. Don’t let them get to you. Trust GOD, put your faith in Christ, walk with Him, submit to Him and His word, and trust His perfect timing. So what if it’s taking a little longer than you thought, just know that if it’s in GODS hand and you’re asking for His will to be done and according to His time that it will be that much sweeter. This is not the time to give up or throw in the towel. This is the time to work harder and go harder than you ever have in whatever you’re pursing and especially your relationship with God. Your breakthrough and increase are coming, you just need to submit to God and trust HIS timing and His plan for you.
Let me put some Word on it:
Isaiah 40:31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles.They will run and not grow weary.They will walk and not faint.
- Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
- Galatians 6:9 So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
- Ecclesiastes 3:11 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.
- Psalm 37: 3-4 (3) Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires
