Stand Firm

Today's Word: Jul 28, 2021

In the Scripture, an angel appeared to a teenager named Mary and told her that she was going to be the mother of the Messiah, the Christ. She would have honor and be admired for generations to come. I'm sure Mary was excited. But I can hear Mary years later, saying, "God, You didn't tell me I would have to watch my son die a painful death."

When God gives you a promise, He'll show you the end but not the middle. What you're going through today may be difficult and doesn't make sense. This is where your faith has to kick in. Are you going to give up and talk yourself out of it? Or, are you going to do as Mary did and say, "God, You didn't tell me about these dark valleys. But I know You're still on the throne, and it's not a surprise to You. I'm not going to live in discouragement, give up on my dreams, or quit believing. I'm going to have faith in the middle."
