The Finishing Touch


It matters. Everything that is seen and unseen, known and unknown, dreams, goals, promises, all of it matters to God. If it matters, then why does it take so long, you ask? If you could see what God has planned, you would trust that he also knows the perfect time for it to happen.

I Samuel 1 tells us the story of Hannah who desperately wanted a child. When God finally opened her womb, she conceived a son and named him Samuel. She gave her firstborn  back to the Lord and had him serve in the temple. Samuel quickly learned to hear God’s voice and became the prophet who anointed kings.

Sometimes what God is doing sets us up for something beyond our understanding. During your time of waiting for the promise to manifest, allow God to finish you. Yes that’s right, just like making a fine garment, the finishing touches are the very thing that makes it beautiful. When I made Stacys wedding dress, it was the hand sewn pearls on that blasted bodice that took so much time, but when it was all put together and fitted to her perfectly, it was finished.

Trust me, Gods putting it all together, every pearl, every seam, every part of every promise and it will be a perfect fit to you. Wait for it. Yes indeed, wait for it. Psalm 27:14, “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous, yes wait patiently for the Lord.”

Father, I’m so excited to see the manifestation of Your promise. You have customized it just for me and it will fit perfectly. I’m thankful for every detail, for your thoughts toward me are good and not evil. You use everything satan thought to destroy me with and use it to bless me. I glorify and bless Your great and holy name for You are great. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
