1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good
you ever felt forgotten by God? I know I've felt that way. Does
God seem to be blessing everyone except you? Do your expectations of God
seem to meet with cold indifference from Him? Do you find yourself
asking "What is God doing?" and "What's going on
here?" If your answer is "yes," then rejoice,
because you are at the edge of a miracle! You are on the verge of
a breakthrough! Don't give up now your door is about to swing
Any woman knows the
most difficult time of any birth is the few moments right before you
deliver your baby into the world. You’re tired and exhausted beyond
what you can endure. The last thing you want to hear again is PUSH! You
can’t take it anymore! You have pushed and pushed and have exhausted
all your strength! You don’t have another push in of you!
You want to scream, and you do: "I can't do this . . . I
can't!" BUT you must! You know you can’t keep that child inside
of you! It is at this
moment that you must push the hardest and exert yourself the most. You
are crying, "I can't," and everyone around you is yelling,
"PUSH!" Easy for them to say, they are not the one lying there going
through all that pain! Yet,
you know they are right, you have to PUSH!
Then, somewhere deep
inside you, the strength arises! You now have determination where
hopelessness used to dwell. Now you cry from the depths of your heart,
"I can," and "I will!" You push! You’re at
that same place now - on the verge of a breakthrough. Perhaps you are
tired of believing, tired of hearing another prophecy, but you can't
give up now. That's what the enemy wants you to do. Only you
can break through to your miracle! Only you can give birth to your
dream! Only you can fight through to your dream's fulfillment, no one
else. God will give you His strength when you have none of your own.
When you fall short, He will pick you up because, "He
gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak"
I have felt this way
and I know some of you have too. I have felt like God had forgotten me.
I wondered if the promise would ever be fulfilled - if God would ever
open the door. I had been teetering on the edge of a breakthrough for so
long that I allowed doubt to creep in. I began to say, "Would it
ever really happen?" "Maybe God has changed His mind?"
“Maybe what I dreamed wasn’t from the Lord.”
I was tired of waiting, of praying, of hoping in faith! I felt
like a butterfly in a cocoon, hidden and forgotten.
Have you been there?
we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,
who have been called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28).
God will sometimes take
us through “painful, ugly" situations only to turn us into
something beautiful. Something
that will glorify His Name. Look
at the painful death of our Saviour.
Had He not gone through, had He not endured, where would we be?
How could His Father have been glorified? How could we have ever known how much the Father loves us?
The situation that
you are in right now is the "death" that will give birth to
your dream. The pain that you’re enduring could be the launching pad
for your future. Don’t
allow the enemy to cause you to give up on your dreams. If you feel as
though you are invisible, rejoice, because you are. God has hidden you away
to change you in secret, but soon He will pull you out like a secret
weapon and show you off to the world.
Each day that you wake
up, and give God the glory, and wait on His timing for your destiny's
fulfillment is one day closer to its birth.
You don’t want to quit now. As you come closer to your time of
delivery, you begin to feel in your spirit that the time is near.
Perhaps today will be the day! You begin to look around you and see your
brothers and sisters receive the promises of God in their lives - you
are happy for them. You say to yourself “Lord when is it going to be
my turn? When will my destiny come forth like God promised it would?”
Each day we must prepare our hearts to believe that, "this could be
the day He fulfills His promises to me".
Each day we must “EXPECT A MIRACLE”.
Each day we must be ready to receive, and then suddenly He does.
The longer you worship
and praise the Lord, the deeper you will trust Him to bring His promises
to pass in your life. As you come closer to the time of receiving the
fulfillment of His call on your life, you can know that each day will
bring you one day closer. Today, yes this day could be the day you
receive a great blessing from God. Today could hold the answer you have
been waiting for.
Wait in faith through
each day expecting to receive your promise as a woman waiting to give
birth. God does not bring you to the time of birth just to stop the
whole process. In other words, He didn’t bring you this far to leave
you now. He has not forgotten you.
He will not forget you! It will happen! You must always remember,
“He who began a
good work in you will be faithful to complete it" (Philippians
"God is not a man, that he should lie, or
a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not
act?" (Numbers 23:19).
Say this with me:
always keeps His promises. God will do what He has promised. He has not
forgotten me, for I am constantly in His thoughts. I must not give up on
God, for He is waiting to fulfill His Word through me. I know it will
happen! This could be the day! God cannot lie; He will not change His
mind. I choose to believe what God has spoken and not the lies of fear
want you to Pray. Pray without ceasing. Do not give me up; I haven’t
given up on you. Don’t grow weary; don’t lose sight of the promises
I have spoken to you. They will come to pass.
Remember they are YES and AMEN in Christ Jesus. Keep your eyes on
Me. Do not allow the enemy to cause you to lose your focus and start to
dwell on the things of this world, on the circumstances of this time.
This world will pass away, and everything in it, but My Word will last
forever. Focus on Me, Focus on My Word, and I will strengthen your
heart. Remember that this fight is not against flesh and blood, but
against forces that rage in
the good fight of faith.
I say unto to each of you this day "Do not stop. Pray! Pray!
Pray!" We must be like Jacob and don’t let go until we
receive our blessing.
HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU
A well-known speaker started off
his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill. In
the room of 200, he asked, who would like this $20 bill? Hands started
going up. He said, I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first,
let me do this. He proceeded to crumple the $20 dollar bill up.
He then asked, who still wants it?
Still the hands were up in the
My friends, we have all learned a
very valuable lesson. No matter what I
did to the money, you still
wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.
Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the
dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what
has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to
those who love you.
The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or whom we know, but by WHO WE ARE. You are special - Don't EVER forget it.
Count your blessings, not your problems. Never be afraid to try something new

IT MAY BE DELAYED, BUT IT'S NOT DENIED
want to encourage you this day, not to be disappointed at what appears
to be a lack of results in prayer. We have no idea what the Lord
is doing on our behalf to answer our prayers. We cannot see it,
but rest assured His is working it out. What He requires from us
is faith to believe that the Word of God is true. Just because you
FEEL the answer isn't coming, do not let the enemy make you BELIEVE your
prayer has been denied. Keep your eyes focused on Jesus, and keep
praying in faith, remembering to thank Him and praise Him for all He has
Remember: GOD IS FAITHFUL!
DON'T GIVE UP
2 Corinthians 4:8 "We are pressed on every
side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because
we don't know why things happen as they do, but we don't give up and
do not want you to be discouraged, and give up hope. You will be avenged
and you will move into the work I have prepared for you. I am
going before you and hemming you in from behind. I am encompassing you
with My love. Nothing will be able to touch you, to shake you, to throw
you off guard, for I am doing a complete work within you. Every idol is
being brought to the ground, and you will honor Me with your whole
being. So please don't give up.
see the struggle within you. I see you are being torn, tossed upon the
waves of the storm, but do not lose hope. Do not give up. Do not believe
the lies of the enemy. Do not bow down to the intimidator. Instead cling
to the promises I have given to you, that when the storms are over, you
will get up onto your feet and you shall be changed, made new, no longer
divided in heart, and I will bring you into the fullness of your

that I cannot over-ride the present situation? I can, and I will. I will
take what seems, once again, like an impossible situation and put My
stamp of approval upon it. Push through to heights unknown. Do not be
content to live on the surface of life, but press in to the fullness
offered to you through My Son. Do not back down, but gear up and move
forward. Those who try to slow you down will not be successful. I shall
take the reigns out of their hands. No longer will they be a hindrance
in your walk. I want you to set your sights on things above and

faithful in the call and I shall reward you with blessings untold. Trust
Me to provide for your every need. Trust Me to lift you up and out of
despair and into heavenly blessings.
