Don’t Stop Believing

“And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years….But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John….Now after those days his wife Elizabeth conceived; and she hid herself five months, saying, “Thus the Lord has dealt with me, in the days when He looked on me, to take away my reproach among people.””
‭‭
Luke‬ ‭1:6-7, 13, 24-25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

There’s no such thing as too late with God.

The odds against you do not matter.

Wait actively – pray in the wait.

Don’t stop praying.

Even when in doubt, pray. Praise also.

When it feels like your prayers will not be answered, praise, praise & worship some more.

Keep on asking. Don’t stop seeking. Keep knocking.

The doors will open.

The doors WILL open.

Your prayers do not fall on deaf ears. There’s an appointed time for its fulfilment. The answer is held back for a Wonderful reason.

Zecharias & Elizabeth waited a long time. Their answer came at a time when it was no longer biologically possible. Had they never had to wait, they wouldn’t have been the ones who birthed and raised the one who ushered in The One who bought us a new covenant with God through the sacrifice of Himself.

Don’t stop believing.

Morning Musing: Ephesians 3:20-21

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

Ephesians‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

My Father does not do little! Nor does He just stick with the exact request. When we ask for a bucket, He gives an ocean. He goes over, above and beyond. He does not merely respond to spoken prayers. He also responds to the unspoken thoughts.

So whatever we are asking Him today, we know that more than enough will be given to us. Everything is given in lavish quantity. Our prayers and thoughts answered in big ways. Before He pours out a blessing on us, first, He gets a good measure of it, presses it down, shakes it together (to give room for even more), He may repeat this a few times before He pours it on us.

He does not need to ration. All things belong to Him. And if what we need does not yet exist, He that made all things can create it.

Awesome God!

Like our Father, we too ought to be above and beyond in everything. At work, at home, in our communities, let us give wholeheartedly and go beyond just what is expected of us.

Live Lavishly. Love Lavishly.
