Yes, it’s that time of year again, The End! It’s the time of year people have a tendency to think to themselves, another year has come and gone, and I didn’t accomplish that weight goal, I didn’t run that 5K, I didn’t start that degree program, heck I didn’t even change my outlook on life like I said I would!
If you said any of those statements to yourself, then take courage in knowing that you aren’t alone, many people didn’t see their dreams, visions or goals actually came to pass; but don’t give up on yourself, and more importantly don’t give up on God; He will bring your purpose (your dreams, visions and goals) to pass!
In the book of Genesis chapter 15 about the 5 verse, God took Abraham out into the night sky and showed him a vision. He said to him, look at the stars in the sky, as many stars as there are in the sky, this is how many offspring you will have, and They will bring my (your purpose) purpose to pass.” Could you imagine what Abraham was probably thinking when God told him this, especially seeing his age and the fact that he didn’t even have one child yet! (Talk about waiting on the Lord…now that’s patience and faith!)
Sometimes when God births a dream or vision in us, the full manifestation or fruition of that dream may be to vast for us to take hold of; just as with Abraham! Could you image having faith in God telling you that you would have as many children as there were stars in the sky when you didn’t even have one child yet? Well Abraham did,…through faith… in God and what He was telling Him, Abraham spoke the language of God in His everyday life and eventually the vision came to life! He may have been in the latter stages of his life when it happened, but it did happen!
The Bible tells us in Habakkuk 2:3, “For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” Your dreams may seem to tarry or to not be reachable at this time, but the Word of God tells us that they are only waiting for an appointed time and they will not prove to be false in your life, they will come to pass!
My friend let me encourage you that even though the end of the year is here, GOD WILL BRING YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE TO PASS! Look at how long it took Abraham before He saw His dream of having one child come to fruition; but once that one child (dream) came, the flood gates of heaven opened and now he has so many, until they out-number the stars in the sky.
LOOK TO GOD as Abraham did, HAVE FAITH IN HIM and TO THAT SEED HE HAS PLANTED IN YOU! God will not allow you to become pregnant with a dream, a vision or a goal and not give you the strength, or the ability to give birth to it!
REMEMBER THAT HIS LOVE, GRACE AND MERCY ARE FOREVER PRESENT WITH YOU and that according to The 23 PSALM, HIS GOODNESS and HIS MERCY aren’t just present with you, but THEY PURSUE YOU ALL THE DAYS OF YOUR LIFE! AMEN!
Forever In His Grace,
