God's promises for you is sure and will come to pass

Some of God's promises include: The promise of being blessed and made a blessing. Heb. 6: 13-18. The promise of increase. Job 8: 7 The promise of a rich and fulfilled life. 2Tim. 1: 1. Jn. 10:10. The promise of good health. Exodus 23:25 The promise of the fruit of the womb and the gift of long life. Exodus 23: 26 The promise of eternal life. Heb. 9: 15; 1Jn. 2: 25. The promise of the Holy Spirit. Acts 1: 1; 2: 39. The promise of His leadership and protection. Isaiah 48: 17; Ps. 91: 3-8. God had us in mind when He made promise to Abraham and sealed it with an oath. He swore an oath to assure us, the heirs, the immutability of His counsel/promises. This is how the Bible puts it: Hebrews 6:13-18 "For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, [14] Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. [15] And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. [16] For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. [17] Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: [18] That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us" Our God is a faithful, dependable and a just God. He will never fail. However, we all have a part to play to make what He says concerning us come to pass. Here some things to take note of: 1. Continue to walk in consciousness of his promises over you and never let that devil lie to you that God has failed, that your time has passed or that it's always been only a dream Hebrews 10:35,38 "[35] Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. [38] Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him" That devil will attack you, will raise a resistance against you. he will try to make things difficult for you. he will even raise men to say all sorts of negative stuffs about what you are believing for. All of that is so he can kill your confidence in God, destroy your faith and make you lose focus. But I challenge you to keep believing no matter what and know that your deliverance is at hand. It was said of Abraham: Romans 4: 19-22 “And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb: 20He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 21And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. 22And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness”. I tell you child of God, it's not over yet, it's sure coming to pass. Somebody reading this is about to share a mind blowing testimony. 2. You need to show patience and walk in obedience to God By experience, we can bear witness that God never lies and never fails. However, we have seen that His promises a lot of the times don’t come to pass instantly or at the time we thought they would happen. God does everything beautiful in His time. Patience is about waiting for a thing for as long as it will take the thing without complaining, worrying or fear. You are going to forfeit everything God has planned for you if you can't wait on Him. And because you don't know when, with God patience in needful. Patience and obedience go together, this is why the Bible says: "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. [37] For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry." (Hebrews 10:36-37) Obedience is simply about doing the will of God. You see, the devil knows that if he can frustrate you, get you to be upset with God and walk away from His Word, he can interrupt your destiny. So when you seem to be going through delay, he will attack your mind, he will attack your relationships, he will sell to you other 'brilliant ideas' and all that just to make you not do the will of God and forfeit God's plan and purpose for your life. If you want to see The Word fulfilled in your life, you've got to be patient and continuing walking in obedient to God, doing His will. Doing the will of God keeps you within His will and purpose for your life Doing the will of God is your only Guarantee that what you are believing for will come to pass. You forfeit a lot not knowing and not walking in the will of God. You open your life and destiny to the enemy when you step out of God's will. You step out of God's protection when you walk away from His will Outside His will, there are no guarantees. One of the things you must do when you are experiencing a delay is to check it out and make sure that the delay is not as a result of disobedience to God. Check out every aspect of your life and be sure that you are doing the will of God there. Once you know that your walk with God is intact, then know that your best days are ahead of you and it's only a matter of time. However, never forget that you are always going to need patience - Remember, God only does everything beautful in His time. I decree and declare into your life and destiny - the arrows of the enemy against you will not prosper. The mountain before you will come low. In the mighty name of Jesus your victory is here! Keep Doing the will of God
