“ . . .being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Message and Prayer
You have held on during tough times. God gave you the strength to endure that at times you didn’t even know it was him. When circumstances in your life change, many people may distance themselves from you and seemingly miraculously behave as though they never had a relationship with you. But not only did you endure in the storm, but you also grew in the storm. Take comfort in the fact that God is going to bless your faithfulness. He is about to take you to new levels personally and professionally that you never dreamed possible! So this very moment, stop and be thankful and receive it in Jesus’ name! Rest assured, as he is God, what you are going through is only here for a season. What you are going through is being used by God to refine your rough edges and to prepare you for the bright future he has in store for you All you need to do is stay in faith and trust the process; God is doing great work in you! When you come through (and you will come through) you will be wiser, stronger, and better positioned to receive all that God has in store for you! God is preparing you for the amazing future he has planned for you!
Father thank you for the closed doors and for not letting me settle for second best. Every time I thought I was missing out on a good opportunity, you were redirecting me to something better. I pray you will give me peace when frustration creeps up. I pray you will give me the strength to press on when I am told “no” or are not considered. Thank you for doing good work in me and for teaching me that “no” is just a step to a bigger better “YES”.
