“And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.” Exodus 12:41 (KJV)
When you doubt God, you delay your miracle. Those who observe lying vanities forsake their mercy – that is what the bible says in Jonah 2:8. Do you know that the symptoms you are having on your body, the challenges you are going through in your marital life, business, finance, and in whatever are is nothing but lying vanities? The good news that it is all subject to change.
The children of Israel looked at themselves for 430 years and nothing around them indicated that they will ever come out of Egypt, but guess what? They did. In the same vein, I know that whatever God has told you will come to pass. I don’t know how it will but I have come to declare to you: God is not a man that He should lie. If He said it, He will do it! If He has spoken it, He will bring it to pass. Hang in there! God will come through for you. He is a faithful God.
You know the story of how God supernaturally preserved Moses. Despite all the challenges He preserved him. Yes, all children were being killed, but God not only preserved Moses, He also used the resources of Egypt to train him.
Believers are too quick to allow the devil to take their blessings. When he brings pressure, many believers give up and settle for less. The excuse is, “I don’t want trouble.” Nevertheless, you forget that when you give the devil an inch, he will take a kilometre. However, when the devil sees a man who can eyeball him and tell him, “I’m a covenant child and that there is a blood that speaks on my behalf” he will have no choice than to bow.
Don’t you ever give up in the face of adversity? The God that visited the children of Israel and delivered them out of the bondage of 430 years will visit you. He will do you good. And He will perfect everything that concerns you.
