Early the next morning the people went out to the wild country near Tekoa. As they were starting out, Jehoshaphat addressed them with these words: “People of Judah and Jerusalem! Put your trust in the Lord your God, and you will stand your ground. Believe what his prophets tell you, and you will succeed.” 2 Chronicles 20:20 GNT
There’s a little combo going on here; Trust in God, Stand your ground, Believe what the prophet says. So often we forget the words spoken over us because all the other stuff gets too loud. Trust–Stand–Believe!
But if you’ll faithfully do the above, you will surely succeed! Keep doing what God says regardless of what your natural eyes and ears are saying to you. Regardless of the length of time between the believing and the manifestation of the promise, Trust–Stand–Believe!
My mom used to sing this song; “Oh yes the answers on the way, this I know. Jesus said it, I believe it and it’s so. Our Heavenly Father knows our need before we pray. So we can rest assured the answers on the way.” She was right, is still right and will continue to be right. He will show up just in time just because He is God!
My friends, God is aware of all the intricate details of your life. The storm that’s been pummeling you with rain for so long will soon end. This does not come as a surprise to God, and it should not shake your faith. Yes you’re human. Yes you’re allowed to be afraid. But don’t allow fear to knock the blocks of trusting, standing and believing, out from underneath your feet. Stand your ground, don’t let go, you’re going to make it!
Praying for You Today,
