We are pretty busy here at Sacred Revolution Ministries as we are gearing up for the Homeschool Convention this weekend. Don’t forget to come and check out our booth if you are in the area!
In Bible study this morning, I came across this verse in Proverbs 13:12:
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
Most of us have probably been in this place where we have either asked God to move in a particular situation or we feel as if He has given us a promise that we are waiting for Him to fulfill. In the waiting, there is always great temptation to doubt or even to give up the waiting altogether. But, take heart. He will deliver on His Word. Our miracle or promise may not be according to our timeline or be delivered in the manner that we were thinking, but He will come through for His people. He is an amazingly creative God and He writes really great stories for us. Think about it….what would a great adventure be like if there was no period of suspense or waiting as the heroine of the story is presented with an impossible situation. As the reader of these great adventures, we realize that these stories will have some sort of resolution and our hero will live another day to set out on other great adventures. God will give you an end that will prosper you and not harm you. He will give you a hope and a future! (Jer. 29:11)
Live this adventure and be amazed AND do not give up, my friend!
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
