THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
YOUR FAITH IS GOING TO BRING UNEXPECTED FAVOR
There are times when we’re waiting on GOD to do something, but God is waiting on US. Think of all the people in the Scripture who DIDN’T wait for Jesus to come to THEM, but sought HIM out PASSIONATELY for their needs, even pushing through CROWDS to touch the hem of His garment for HEALING. God has a perfect time for EACH of us, but today’s Scripture says, “Faith IS…” FAITH is always in the NOW. It may not bring the change OVERNIGHT, for we ALL have waiting periods. But our FAITH should stay ACTIVE. This should be our normal way of LIFE: “Lord, thank You that the secret petition of my heart is on the way. I’m looking for Your goodness and favor TODAY, not next week, not next MONTH, not next YEAR.” Stay in the NOW. Your FAITH is going to turn things AROUND. Your FAITH is going to open the right DOORS. Your FAITH is going to bring unexpected FAVOR. Live with the ANTICIPATION that it could happen TODAY.
Hebrews 11:1, TLB
What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.
