    One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him. 'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?' Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is...

    Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 'How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, that murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Tell them, As I live, says Yahweh, surely as you have spoken in my ears, so will I do to you' N...

    Elijah said to him, Elisha, please wait here, for Yahweh has sent me to Jericho. He said, As Yahweh lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you.

A Long Time Coming

  • Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, in the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John, the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness. He came into all the region around the Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for remission of sins. (Luke 3:1 WEB)

    It had been a long time coming. Ancient prophecies spoke of the one that would come and prepare the way for the Messiah (Isaiah 40:3). When John the baptizer was finally born, and though many great prophecies had been spoken about his ministry, there was still nothing to see but a small child.

    For twenty years, nothing happened except that John grew older. Finally the day came, and the Word of God came to John in the wilderness, which changed everything. John came onto the scene and changed the world around him carrying a powerful word from God. He was the one that baptized Jesus and even recognized Him. The word of God could have came to the high priest, but no, it came to John in the wilderness. It was time.

    In my own life, the Lord told me when I was young to prepare myself for ministry. So I went through school, got ordained, and then waited' and waited' If I was invited to speak somewhere, they would call and cancel before the day arrived, sometimes the morning of, and after I had fasted for a week. Twenty years went by and all the doors into ministry remained supernaturally closed.

    After years, suddenly the day came and I was pushed into ministry like cattle being herded through a loading chute. Every other door and line of work was shut tight, and it became the only path open to me. Two weeks before, we had been out of work for months, could not find a job, could no longer pay the bills, and were packing to move out of our home. I was in a dark place and I no longer even talked to God because I had given up. That was the day that His word came to me.

    While sitting alone in my prayer room without saying anything, I suddenly had an open vision from the Lord and that Friday I was a pastor. Then a friend stepped in and paid all our bills for the month. It took forever and then happened suddenly. Here I am.

    God has the day marked on His calendar when your situation will change. There is a date, and the closer that you come to it, the more difficult your life usually is at that moment. A sure sign of a breakthrough is when all hell seems to be breaking loose against you. Stay the course. Keep the faith. Try and keep a positive attitude. You will overcome and His word concerning you will come to pass. One word from God changes everything.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your goodness. I know that You see me right where I am, and Lord I know that You have not forgotten me. Strengthen me, build my faith, and draw my heart to You. Send Your word to me Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Thank you for the reminder. God has kept me waiting for a long time, but I know it will happen in his time, not mine. I pray that I will not lose faith and continue to wait patiently for my turn to come.

God has the day marked on His calendar when your situation will change. There is a date, and the closer that you come to it, the more difficult your life usually is at that moment. A sure sign of a breakthrough is when all hell seems to be breaking loose against you. Stay the course. Keep the faith. Try and keep a positive attitude. You will overcome and His word concerning you will come to pass. One word from God changes everything. I needed to hear this thank you. Feel overwhelmed by the constant attacks of the ememy latley it seems when it's letting up some it comes back even more fierce from the last attacks.Trying to keep your eyes on the Lord in mist of so much attacks is hard and overwhelming but knowing God is with us in the misit of storms hitting us at every turn gives me hope and peace despite being in mist of storms.

Great story...great news!  Mine is strengthen me, build my faith and keep me drawn to you.  Grateful pain is a lot less.  Yet being in my senior years & older then my husband I got in a funk of all the debt we have called obligated debt and my husband working so much, for over road truckers do, we have one night together (Sat) and some days a few hours. Had hoped we might spend more time together.  He's a good husband.  My Stenosis has limited me and got wondering what years ahead will be like.  Put me in a funk I am slowly coming out of.  The what ifs start and I remembered ...what if God did(take care of everything etc and we would spend more time together)came along.  Wanting to stay in the day and moment and fear to jump in the lake, plainly.  I am powerless yet He is not.  Thank Him that He knows me soo well.  Blessings RHM!
