Storms will come, crisis will hit hard, lions will roar, and your fears will be confronted, but you will one day find yourself caught up in a move of God that shifts your circumstances, removes obstacles and commands progress.
When this happens, you will be like those that dream, Pastor Justine Nabbosa said while appearing on ‘The Worship Encounter’ program aired by a Christian broadcaster.
“I was once told of a lady who spent 11 years without a child in her marriage. She prayed and believed God who did something miraculous and she bore a child. Amazingly, she was silent about it till the 7th month. Can this belly of mine really carry a child, she wondered. Even when she gave birth, she was still in shock wondering if indeed she was with her own child. It was like a dream,” she added.
Christians are taught a provision for divine acceleration from God enabled Elijah to travel 40 days and nights, non-stop, as he set out on his journey to Horeb. From there, Elijah was launched into his next season. (1 Kings 19)
There are times when the enemy will try to hold one back from fulfilling God’s purposes. “Even when it seems that the enemy has succeeded, it is never too late for God,” Justine said.
She noted that God can supernaturally replenish, overturn the battle and launch one, victorious, into His purposes.
“When you read the entire story of the captivity the Israelites – it took so many years – but they did not grow weary in waiting. They did not give up on prayer. The Bible says they would gather and worship and study the word of the God of Israel. They reminded themselves of the things God had done ages past and the promises he had given them through their descendants,” Justine said.
“Every time they recited these promises they grew in courage. And indeed God did mighty and great things in their lives. The king of Egypt gave them safe passage to exit – they were like them who dream. Just as it was with them , so shall it be with you. There is grace to perform and act,” she continued.
“The bible says; I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request. (1 Chronicles 4:10).” She added
“What kind of thing is bothering you. What has scared you as we end this year . Whatever you think is too big, that date, marriage situation, whatever you find hard and impossible, God is going to perform it and it won’t take Him long,” the ‘Oli Katonda’ singer shared.
