What if… everything you are going through right now is preparing you for what you asked for… what if it’s preparing you for what you are praying for?
This was on my heart a few weeks ago.
“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
What if all that you are going through you HAVE TO GO THROUGH to get to where you have always dreamed of?? Would that change your perspective on things?? Would that change the way you see the heartache and fear and worry you are going through?? Would it make it easier to deal with it all??
When we TRUST IN GOD, we have to believe that we are going to receive His Promise. We have to believe that God has given us sufficient faith and sufficient grace to go through whatever it is we are going through or will go through.
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us.” -Romans 8:18
I know what it’s like to live every day second by second and minute by minute. Not knowing what is going to happen. Not knowing if we will even get through the day alive. I know. It’s hard. It hurts. I was forced, kicking and screaming, to learn patience.
I had to close my eyes in certain moments and trust God like I had never trusted before. I closed my eyes, breathed in and out and begged the Holy Spirit to come to me. Asking Him to take me to a place where there is peace in this moment. Because in that moment, the pain was so excruciating and the sights were so unbearable, I couldn’t be there.
But He was. He was with me. And with Him, I got through that. We can get through it ALL with HIM!!! We must remember that in our deepest pains and in the special moments that only HE can change or fix, He will! When we need Him the most… He is always there.
We have to remember His Promise. We have to believe that we will receive whatever it is we are praying for. And when we pray for something, we have to Praise like we already have the blessing. We already have what we are praying for. Whatever we’re going through, its to get to THAT!! We have to keep going. We have to keep fighting. We have to keep praying.
Keep in mind that ‘this too shall pass’.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover, whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.” Romans 8:28-30
