What Word have you let slip so far this year?
Or even prior to that, have you given up hope on the promises of God for you, whether it was last year or previous years – have you grown complacent and taken on the mantra, “It is what it is.”
Have you grown to accept “business as usual” and stopped expecting the unexpected in your life?
This reminds me of the story of Mary. Mary was a woman of God who received a message from an angel of God- she was to give birth to a Son, Jesus Christ, though she was a virgin. She couldn’t see how it could happen at first, then she just accepted the proclamation as she stated, “Be it unto me, according to thy Word” (Luke 1:38)
However, in the meantime and in between time, she got pregnant and had to carry Jesus to full term and give birth to Him – all in faith. At any moment she could have chosen not to believe; she could’ve said, “Me, pregnant? How could that be? I don’t think so!” Yet she still chose to remain steadfast and unmovable, believing God’s Word from the messenger of God to be true.
In the same manner, what Word has God spoken to you about? Has God told you years ago that you will be married one day, yet you haven’t seen the manifestation yet?
I’d just like to encourage you, in spite of how long it’s been, to hold on to God’s Word, and hold on to your faith. Don’t let it slip, get back on top of things when it comes to reading God’s Word and believing it to be true for you.
As Mary has learned and as you know – with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26) Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. (Hebrews 2:1) So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17)
