What are you praying and hoping for today? I want to encourage you to stand strong because God is faithful to His promises, and scripture tells us that the moment we pray, the tide of the battle begins to turn. Have you been praying for a long time? I believe the tide is turning. I believe the currents of God are moving your way. His currents are going to carry you and rescue you. The currents of God are going to turn things around! We may not see those results instantaneously, but that's when we have to stand strong so that we can see His promises come to pass.
The scripture tells us in Hebrews six that it's through faith and patience that we inherit His promises. I heard someone who was being funny say, "Lord, give me patience…and hurry up!" I think sometimes we pray like that, "Lord, I'm being patient about this thing, so please hurry up!" But we have to remember, when we are in faith, we are content to wait as long as it takes. It doesn't have to be done our way or in our timing. Our faith, our confidence in God is what causes that patience to rise out of our hearts. We trust that God is working even when we don't see it.
Today, no matter what things look like in the natural, rest in Him. Allow faith and patience to quiet your heart. Put your confidence and hope in Him because He who promised is faithful. Know that the tide of the battle is turning. Stand in agreement with His Word and see His power work in your life. Know that He is working behind the scenes, and He will bring to pass every dream He's placed inside your heart!
"We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised." (Hebrews 6:12, NIV)
