Christ being formed in us, is learning to wait upon Him when nothing seems to be working out but in spite of it all, we are willing to learn His ways in order for Him to give us SUBSTANCE. Stop being ashamed because of your today and go through the process, the pain and the pruning with HONOR.I know it’s easier said than done but this is what God says in Isaiah 48:10 -Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. Men of honour are made in the furnace of afflictions. There are certain cups you can’t pray them away no matter how much you fast but God will give you grace to go through them.
We must be willing to carry our own cross for there to be resurrection to a higher dimension. You might not understand everything now but be patient, God is busy making the best version of you for the future. Here is the catch, when life gives you a scar respect it, it is the reason why the crown of honour will be placed on your head. There is nothing new under the sun but truth be told while waiting on God, ignorant people will make you think God’s word is not working but it is working. Don’t allow them to discredit what God has said about you in His word, what He is doing through you and don’t allow anyone disrepute His character. As they witness your scars, God will also use them to testify about the Lord’s doing in your life WITH TIME.
There is no need of birthing an Ishmael when Isaac is already promised. Don’t let impatience make you give birth to what will fight your promise when your prophetic destiny is still valid. Conquer the pressure of trying to prove who you are to men for there is honour allocated for those who wait upon the Lord and allow Him to crown you with His success.
You might not have basic needs for today but choose to believe God’s word still stands and you shall feed nations.
You might not have rent for today but choose to believe not only will you own your own home but you will give houses.
You might be barren today but choose to believe you will nurse your children.
Your gift might not be making sense now but choose to believe God is still God to make that gift make room for you with great men.
Stop chasing after the wind and wait on the Lord to make you. The strength of the flesh will never take you far, wait on God while He is mentoring you, wait while He is teaching you ,wait while He is showing you the way of growth since God is giving you Spiritual immunity as you wait on Him .Die to flesh, keep on growing, keep on moving and defy the mocking’s of men .They can say whatever they want to say but when you are tried as gold, God will Himself lift you up as A TROPHY OF HIS GRACE.
For anyone feeling like giving up, don’t give up .The devil is a liar and his ways will not prevail in the Name of Jesus. Please don’t compromise, greatness is still within you and ahead of you. When God is done with you, you will finally understand and thank Him for His SCHOOL OF TRAINING.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
