This letter is for you, you that’s tired and sort of emptied out. You that tomorrow could be the someday you’ve been waiting for. You that want answers but you’re afraid to ask. You that have seen people say to you, “I’m here for you” and then run away as soon as things start to fall apart. You that there were moments you think you won’t survive and then you survived. You that is allowing your fears to decide your future. I want you to know that whatever it is that you are going through today, they all have an expiry date.
Psalms 34:17-18 (TLB) says, “the Lord hears the good man when he calls to him for help and saves him out of all his troubles. 18 The Lord is close to those whose hearts are breaking”.
Irrespective of how broken you are today, rest and know that God will make a way — rest knowing that things will get better. Stop forcing things and stop trying to do things your way. If you’re sad this season, don’t worry, God will make a way to make you happy. To all those who lost their jobs, possessions and loved ones this year, don’t despair, you are not finished, don’t be hard on yourself, God will make a way. He will give you a testimony that will cause you to tell everyone what He did!
Faith is knowing that God will make a way where you don’t see one. So have faith that God will keep blessing you. Have faith that God will keep strengthening you. Have faith that God will save you and bring you out of that blessed mess. Have faith that God will always love you irrespective of your mistakes. Have faith that God will provide your daily bread and supply all your needs. Accept that God has already given you victory over Satan. Satan might be shouting “no way”, but refuse to be terrified. GET READY instead because a way is about to show up.
If you were one of those that didn’t think today was going to come because of the situation you were in yesterday, a week or months ago, today is here now — you made it! There might still be some pockets of challenges here and there but don’t try to fix all of them today — there are 364 other days of the year to address them. Be positive and be patient knowing that God has made a way where you think there wasn’t going to be one.
It doesn’t matter if sometimes the road gets rough and you get discouraged, just keep the faith and know that God will make a way out of no way. Every time you get weak, He will always be there to show you that He’s always with you. Every time they ask you of love and all you can remember is heartbreak, God will put His love into you in ways you never deemed possible. You may not even be where you want to be right now but thank God and be encouraged — you’re not where you started from. God will make a way for you through the mess even when your enemies try to distract you. He will alter circumstances and cause them to change for the better. His hand is working! His counsel and purpose for you will stand — established, unchanged and it will prevail — Proverbs 19:21.
You’ve come too far — fight a good fight of faith and soon, when all is well, you’re going to look back on this period of your life and be so glad that you never gave up. You will look back at your past and say “Thank You, God, for coming to get me.”
