Remember the word to Your servant, In which You have made me hope. (Psalm 119:49)
The Lord continued to bring the same message to my heart over and over again. Through His Word, He persistently confirmed His promise to me. Yet, to be honest, my circumstances contradicted what I was hearing from the Lord. My limited vision became fixated on the condition at hand, instead of on God’s promise to me. All of a sudden, doubt began to take over my heart. Had I heard from God correctly? What if I had missed it? As I spent time pondering over these questions, a spirit of fear began to invade my heart.
‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ (Isaiah 41:10)
As time passed, God continued to speak His constant word of hope to my heart even though my circumstances remained the same. When I doubted, “I shut down inside.” However, when I believed God, “My spirit came alive.”
My heart was being called to “Take God” at His Word. A call to faith like never before was issued. Would I believe God–or man? Would I stand on what He had spoken to me, or drown in the sea of doubt?
“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19)
It was time to take God at His word and move on in confidence as I waited for Him to bring His miracle to pass. Both God’s word and His Spirit reassured me that I had heard from Him. So I moved forward in His confidence, trusting that He would bring to pass all He had spoken, in His time and in His way. I didn’t have to try and make anything happen.
In a world that is ever-changing—we can always be confident of God’s character and of His love for His children. He never lies. He is faithful to His word and to His own. We can stand on His promises with full assurance without fear. God is trustworthy! If He said it–then He will do it. Hold on–your miracle is coming!
Let us hear from you! What is God calling you to do?
