Sometimes God will allow you to go through because you have the resources (or access to them) and the voice to fight for someone who doesn’t.
This is why you have to know …
You are not being used but unmovable
You are not being forsaken but faithful
You are not being overlooked but obedient
You may not be seeing a return on your investment and you’re thinking about giving up because being in the world was better. You may be struggling although you’re serving and you’re at the end of your rope. You might be contemplating ending it all or thinking about throwing in the towel. You may be tired of praying but beloved … hold on. No, I don’t have the magic word that will end your pain. I don’t have the wand to make all of your problems disappear. I don’t have the prophecy that will set your life in order. What I do have is the word and God’s word gives me a YET praise. What’s a yet praise? It’s what bible shares in Habakkuk 3:17-19 …
“Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the LORD! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! The Sovereign LORD is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights.”
Here’s my affirmation for today: I may not see a bud blooming YET I’ll praise God because I know it’s coming. I may not know when but I know it will!
