KEEP THE FAITH
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9 NIV
Many times life comes opposite of what we expected, it is not that easy to put all of your dreams in reality like the way you once thought. I know most us had dreams, plans, goals and targets in life when we were still growing up.
Some girls during that time planned that they will get married when they reach 25, and when they are in their 30's they will have kids with a happy family. Many boys dreamed to finish their education before a certain age mostly 25 and having a good position and established life when they are in their 30's.
As years go by these dreams and goals seem to be less than the reality. Many found themselves reaching those years and points in life without having what they dreamed to have. Many ministers when entered in the ministry, had visions which they wanted to be fulfilled in their own schedule or interval of time. When their set time passed without reaching their goals, they became tired and discouraged.
This morning, God wants you to continue keeping the faith knowing that His thoughts are not your thoughts neither your ways His ways. There is a purpose why things did not happen in your own schedule, there is a reason why things are like the way they are now.
God is preparing you for a higher calling in Christ Jesus. He don't want to give you good education and decent job just yet because He may loose you in the middle of prosperity. He wants to teach you to be humble to handle that kind of prosperity which you have been asking.
We have seen many who left churches because they got good husbands; they got so busy to please their husbands and forgot God who gave them. Many started despising everyone including their elders simply because they got a higher positions in their jobs. Be patient let God finish a good work that He has started in you, and the end will be awesome!
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord I'm asking that You may help me to humble myself in your will, that You may finish all the good work which You have started in me. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
