This is from Jen’s book called Wake Up to Hope
Have you been praying and believing for something that’s taking longer then you thought? Many times people can miss God’s best simply because they give up before they see their answer come. Don’t let that be you! Be encouraged today, you answer is closer than you think. If it seems as though things are getting more difficult, remember when the intensity heats up, that means, you are closer to your victory. It is always darkest just before the dawn appears.
Remember, you serve a faithful God. Know that He is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Don’t cast away your confidence today, because your reward is coming. And just like a new mother forgets about her labor pain when she is finally holding her newborn, you’ll forget about your struggle when you are holing your promise.
While you are waiting, keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Wake up each morning and declare, “I’ve come too far to give up now. My due season is comping. I will reap my harvest..” Stay in faith and be on the lookout because he has promised you victory, and it’s closer than you think!
Prayer for Today – Father in Heaven, You that You are my faithful God, and I can depend on You. Today I stand believing that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. My faith and trust are in You alone. I declare that my due season is coming and I will reap a harvest! I am looking for Your Goodness and expecting the victory.. Give me Your strength to stand strong until I see Your promises fulfilled in my life in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
