Has God given you a promise years ago that you have given up on?

When God promises, He comes through no matter how long it seems to take. To Him a thousand years is as a day, so He is not concerned one iota about time like we are. Once He has spoken? It is done!

My girlfriend B, not her real name, introduced me to her Jewish friend Ann about three years ago. I fell in love with that Jewish lady, mostly because my passion is for the Jewish people. Immediately after I met her I knew that some day Ann would see Jesus for Who He really is. My girlfriend and I talked and demonstrated to her many times how Jesus loves her, but there was something holding her back and I did not know quite what it was…until now.

Today I was reading 2 Corinthians 3:14 in the Living Bible , “14 Not only Moses’ face was veiled, but his people’s minds and understanding were veiled and blinded too. Even now when the Scripture is read it seems as though Jewish hearts and minds are covered by a thick veil, because they cannot see and understand the real meaning of the Scriptures. For this veil of misunderstanding can be removed only by believing in Christ. 15 Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings their hearts are blind and they think that obeying the Ten Commandments is the way to be saved. 16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord from his sins, then the veil is taken away. 17 The Lord is the Spirit who gives them life, and where he is there is freedom from trying to be saved by keeping the laws of God.[a] 18 But we Christians have no veil over our faces; we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him

“…now when the Scripture is read it seems as though Jewish hearts and minds are covered by a thick veil, because they cannot see and understand the real meaning of the Scriptures. For this veil of misunderstanding can be removed only by believing in Christ. 15 Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings their hearts are blind and they think that obeying the Ten Commandments is the way to be saved.

16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord from his sins, then the veil is taken away. 17 The Lord is the Spirit who gives them life, and where he is there is freedom from trying to be saved by keeping the laws of God. 18 But we Christians have no veil over our faces; we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him.”

My heart leaped with joy as I immediately knew that a veil was blinding Ann and we needed to pray in a different way than before. We needed to have God remove the veil…and we stand in agreement with that.

My girlfriend came to pick me up this morning to gallivant and bargain hunt. As I ran out the door I quickly grabbed my Bible, bursting with excitement to tell B (who?) what I had read.

While I was reading the Scripture verses to B she grabbed my arm intensely, and I responded, “Wait… I’m not finished yet.” As I looked at her I saw a stream of tears bursting from her eyes as she tried to talk, almost choking on her tears. She shared how God had given her those same verses over thirty years ago. In her Bible she had written next to that portion, “Claim that verse for Ann.” Is there any doubt in your heart that Ann will find her Lord and Master? Absolutely not. None.

His word always comes true…sooner or later. What if it is later? Then hang on to Him for all you are worth and grow in Him through the process. Isaiah 55:11 says, “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”

You have the authority to send the word out to your circumstances and He will always honor His word spoken in truth.

His word will always fill you with an expectation of the good things you hope for, even if you have a doubting heart. Have faith to believe the impossible, and see God work miracles in your life.Picture 300
I hear Jesus say, “I left you with My words that will satisfy the longing of your heart. Allow Me to heal you through My words which are life and light on your pathway. Apply each word by My Spirit to every situation in your life and you will find wisdom and healing beyond your dreams.”
