“Não deixe a religiosidade vendar seus olhos a ponto de você achar que precisa conversar apenas com as pessoas que são cristãs. Lembre-se que Jesus andava com os ímpios, nenhum deles sabiam absolutamente nada sobre a Graça. Jesus foi paciente, falava sobre a palavra, fazia parábolas para aqueles que não entendiam bem e isso trouxe multidões para entender que Ele era o único caminho. Saia da bolha, seja reflexo de Cristo.”

Keep Believing God and It Will Happen

Wait patiently, for it will surely take place.” — Hab 2:3 NLT

Has God promised you something and humanly speaking you see no way it can come to pass? Are you having a hard time waiting? Read this Scripture: “If it seems slow…wait patiently, for it will surely take place.”

God does things on schedule, and your appointment is still on His calendar. Be assured that nothing the Enemy does can preempt the plan of God for your life. When He gives you a promise, it’s like a seed. First it must fall into the fertile soil of faith and be given time to grow. Then it must be watered regularly through prayer and the Word of God. It won’t come to pass because you push and try to manipulate: “[It’s]…not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord” (Zec 4:6). If God has promised you something, stand on His Word and remind yourself, “My life can’t end before this comes to pass.”

The story of Joseph’s life could be summed up in this Scripture: “Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the Lord tested him” (Ps 105:19 NKJV). Why test something? To reveal its strength; to see if it holds up or falls apart under pressure.

What has God promised you? Do you believe Him? How strong is your faith? If it’s weak, God will put you back into the school of faith so you can learn the lessons, pass the tests, and graduate. “Without faith it is impossible to please [God], for he who comes to God must believe that He is…a rewarder” (Heb 11:6 NKJV).

The word for you today is: Keep believing God, and it will happen.

I think the thing that really astounds me is just how much God loves us. He knew exactly who we would be, exactly what we would do, exactly how much we would hurt Him. And yet He still made us. He still gave us this beautiful universe. He still gave us Himself. I can’t even comprehend how beautiful that thought is. He knew it all before He’d even created the earth itself, and yet He did it for us. Because He loves us so much that our minds can’t even begin to wrap around the thought. What a wonderful thought.
