IN PURSUIT OF FINDING JOY ON GOD’S PROMISES

When Jesus said, “It is finished,” before He died thousands of years ago, believe Him. You see, everything He has done for you so far put you in a place where you can serve your purpose. That is why whenever you’re in a bad spot and you can’t control the results of your reckless decisions, He will place doubt on you so you can witness how He will bring you out of it. HE IS AMAZING THAT WAY.

The things that have been troubling you and keeping you awake at night— your college degree, your career, your health, your finances, and even the person you’re going to marry— remember that God already paves the way so you can receive the joy of His love while waiting. There’s always a perfect season for everything. What’s destined to be yours is now finding its way to you. No rush. Just pure faith that everything will fall into its proper places when the right time comes.

Faith is patience with mystery. When He says ‘not yet’, it doesn’t mean that you are not worthy of much greater accomplishments. ‘Not yet’ doesn’t mean ‘no’ and ‘no’ doesn’t mean that you have to stop going. He will destroy your plans just to protect you from your worldly desires— greediness, selfishness, envy, jealousy, resentment before it can totally destroy what’s meant for you. He will build your character and prepare your heart for something bigger than you could ever imagine so when He finally answers your prayers with a ‘yes’ and receive the fruition of your sacrifices, your heart is right before God. There might be distractions & reroutes along the way but it doesn’t mean that you won’t end up in the same destination. You will end up exactly where you should be. That’s the ultimate promise.

The bible says do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself; each day has enough trouble of its own (see reference on Matthew 6:34). Therefore, DO NOT WORRY. You are not being left behind, you are exactly on time. Even in times of confusion, be reminded that everything is already written and Jesus already proved it when He died for you on the cross to carry all your sins.

So when an enemy attacks you and tells you things to make you feel anxious about your future, never for a second believe that you won’t get there. The enemy lies, but Jesus gives comfort with His words. Learn to trust Him even in your pain. Your resources, your knowledge, and your understanding are limited, but His power is sovereign. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6.
