The Promise Is Coming

I want to talk to you today about, the promise is coming. We all have things we’re believing for, dreams God put in our heart, problems to turn

around, but when it’s been so long and we’ve made mistakes, people have come against us. All the circumstances say, if it was going to happen, it

would have happened by now. It’s easy to get discouraged and accept that it’s never going to work out. But what God promised you doesn’t

have an expiration date. Just because you’ve given up on it doesn’t mean that God has given up. You may have done things that should keep

your dream from coming to pass. You got off course, you don’t deserve it, but God is so merciful, he’s already taken your mistakes into account.

You may have delayed it from happening, but you haven’t denied it from happening. The promise is still coming. God is saying, “Despite your

mistakes, despite the failures, despite the delays, I’m still going to bless you. I’m still going to heal you. I’m still going to bring that dream to pass.”

But too often we disqualify ourselves. We think; it would have happened if I’d have made better choices, if I’d finished school, if I’d not got

involved with the wrong  crowd, if I’d not wasted those years compromising, then God would bless me, then he would open up new doors.” That

would be true if God was like us, if he judged us based on our performance and gave us what we deserved. But God is not like people. He is full

of mercy. He doesn’t hold our mistakes against us. He doesn’t cancel our destiny because we got off course. God already knew every wrong

turn we would take. Every mistake we would make every failure, every weakness. Nothing you’ve done is a surprise to God. Nothing that’s

happened to has caught him off guard. The good news is God has mercy for every mistake, restoration for every failure, a new beginning for

loss, a comeback for every setback. What he’s promised you is still on the way. You didn’t miss your chance. You haven’t failed too many times

That disappointment didn’t stop God’s plan. He’s still going to show you  favor

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you
