It’s so easy to get discouraged when things aren’t working threat I expect them to or in the time I want them to.
Even as a woman of faith, it’s a struggle reminding myself that God knows better than I do (what a concept, huh? Lol)
So I can across this devotional (wish I could give credit where credit is due but I don’t have who wrote it! 😁) and I hope that it encourages other during a time of waiting and discouragement. We all go through it so let’s lift each other up and encourage one another as we do cause we aren’t made to live this live alone.
I want to encourage each one of you that God is not slow in answering your prayers no matter what the situation is and he may not answer the way we expect him to, but he is listening and he is looking out for you. We have an amazing God that loves us and wants the best for us!
The Moment We Pray
Are you believing God to do something specific in your life? Be encouraged because God is already working behind the scenes on your behalf. Just because you don’t see anything happening doesn’t mean that God isn’t working. The moment we pray, God sets the miracle into motion. The thing we have to remember is that God doesn’t say, “I’ll deliver you in one hour, or next week, or Tuesday at 5:00 p.m.” No, He doesn’t put a time frame on it. That’s where trust comes in. We have to know that our enemies retreat as soon as we call on Him for help. We have to choose the place of peace knowing that He is working things out.
Today, shake off the temptation to get discouraged during the waiting process. Shake off offense, shake off discouragement. Remember, all it takes is one touch of God’s favor to take you years ahead. Keep standing, keep believing, keep hoping because the answer is on its way the moment we pray!
