God Uses Time To Help You Grow

“At the right time I will hear your prayers. On the day of salvation I will help you” (Isaiah 49:8). “I am the Lord, and when it is time, I will make these things happen quickly”. This is hard for us to accept because God’s waiting room is sometimes the most difficult place in life.…

Don’t Get Tired of Doing the Right Thing

“Let us not get tired of doing what is right, for after a while we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t get discouraged and give up” (Galatians 6:9). If things don’t happen right away or when you think they should, that doesn’t mean you should quit. You need to be diligent. You…

God Is Always On Time

“The vision will still happen at the appointed time. It hurries toward its goal. It won’t be a lie. If it’s delayed, wait for it. It will certainly happen. It won’t be late” (Habakkuk 2:3). God is never in a hurry, and he’s never late. He’s always on time. God’s timing is perfect, even when…

Joseph Chose to Offer Grace

“Mary was engaged to Joseph, but before they were married, she found out that she was going to have a baby by the Holy Spirit. Joseph was a man who always did what was right, but he did not want to disgrace Mary publicly; so he made plans to break the engagement quietly” (Matthew 1:18-19…

Don’t Just Read Gods Word Study It!

“If you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it” (James 1:25). While you’re waiting on God to fulfill a dream or answer a prayer, he wants you to focus on what…

When God Tests You, He’s Stretching You

“The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they follow my instructions” (Exodus 16:4). You can find a lot of commands in the New Testament, and some of them are really inconvenient and uncomfortable—things like “Don’t worry about anything”…

While You Wait, God Is Working On You

“God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart” (Deuteronomy 8:2). If every prayer were answered immediately, if every need were instantly met, and if every problem were automatically solved, your faith would never be stretched. You’d be…

Giving And Faith Go Together

“By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings” (Hebrews 11:4). It’s interesting that the first person who gets mentioned in the “Faith Hall of Fame” is Abel, one of Adam and Eve’s sons. What did Abel do that…
