What if circumstances suddenly turn towards the direction that leads to the fulfillment of what you believe to be a promise that belongs to you? You have been ‘connecting-the-dots’ for quite some time now. There has been a long period of silence but it was not enough for you to lose faith in your DOTS. Then suddenly (like I said), something happens, and it provides a condition that makes it now twice more possible for what you perceived to be ‘God’s will’ to happen. You jump for joy. This is it! The answer to your prayers is about to unfold. Just wait. Just you wait… Ha. Ha.
Then while waiting and this is waiting in joy, another shift happens and if the first turn of events was in your favor, this one is against your expectation. Worse, it more than nullifies the previous shift. It had made you promise’s ‘unfolding’ more impossible than ever. You begin to wonder if you were believing in the right belief in the first place.
And then as if the director is not yet satisfied with the drama, another thing happens. You discover something seemingly more admirable than your previous hope. But then of course you’re not sure if this one is better than the hope that was ‘denied.’ Nonetheless it sent you thinking and thinking and thinking…
Before you know it, you are ridding yourself of your past expectations. But when another wave crashes on this new hope of yours, what would you do?
Will you just be forever tossed by the wind and the waves? Hope has to be grounded on something. And belief is not worth holding on to if it is not founded on HIS promise. (Preaching to myself…) Where are you basing your hopes and dreams? Be careful what you build your hopes and life upon, make sure it is more certain than castles made of sand.
“Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” (Romans 10:11)
For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. (2 Corinthians 1:20)
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. (James 1:6)
