Verse of the Day
‘Days go by, and every vision comes to nothing’? [GWT] Ezekiel 12:22B
You may have started your year with great plans, worked tirelessly hard to see them fulfilled, and maybe for one reason or the other you may have started to say to yourself “what is the point?” “Time is passing and still nothing is coming of this vision”. You’ve had no visible/tangible fruits from your hard work. The Lord is saying to you “The time is near when every vision will come true” [Ezek. 12:23C]. Those visions / goals of yours will not end in vain, and He will help you to make a success of them. The desired/destined end is nearer than you think! #Don’t give up on the vision!
“Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For there are more on our side than on theirs!” [NLT] 2 Kings 6:16
Try not to be afraid! That obstinate obstacle has no support or real backing. You my friend have so much more going for you; you have the Love of Christ, His plans, purpose, vision and power on your side. And with that you will reign victorious over every challenge that tries to sabotage your progress into your fulfilment of your plans this year. Trust me, God is bigger than any challenge that you may be facing or will ever face on your way to your promised land. He is much more in control than you will ever know or realise. So keep pressing on. The goal is worth the labour, and it will never be in vain!
But you, O LORD, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high. [NLT] Psalm 3:3
The Lord Jehovah is your shield, your glory, the one who lifts you up even after you think you’ve failed :). One person’s failed event could be another’s mock event. The practice one before the real test. Even after you’ve given it your best and you didn’t get the results you expected, don’t let that unsettle you. At least you’ve learnt what your strengths and weaknesses are, and should be ready for the next bout on the ring. And this time around, you will not fail. #A failure is only a failure because he thinks he is one! #A person whose head is held high by the Lord surely cannot be a failure? #It’s still full steam ahead working out our goals with the Lord by our side, and dusting ourselves up after a few “mock knock downs”.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. [NASB] John 14:26
Every person at some time or another will always need help. As you try to implement your plans for this year through sheer hard work and persistence, never giving up at any sign of difficulty, try not to forget to ask the Holy Spirit for Help. With Him by your side, He makes the work times infinity much faster . Well, let just say, because He helps you with your timing, your memory, your to do list, your actions and much more, He makes the whole process a lot easier. And with God by your side, you are already almost at your desired goal. You can achieve anything with the help of the Holy Spirit of God!
