Because God’s love has been poured into our hearts we therefore have hope as we are justified by our faith in what Jesus has secured for us at the Cross.
Whatever promises God has spoken into and over you; remain steadfast in this hope over His promises to you. Hope deferred can make the heart grow weary as you may feel like you are in a holding pattern, especially when there may be a great stirring within going on and you may be saying “when God, when; when does it come into manifestation in a real way in my life”?
I sense that God would like to remind you that this longing is to be fulfilled as a tree of life and to not be weary in well doing, for you will reap a great reward from consistently and constantly remaining in His love in a steadfastness of faith. Faithful is He that calls you up to a higher level of walking with Him. He is actually drawing you to Himself. Don’t give into the resistance that would rise up and surround you but rather stay surrendered to Him and His love. He has you.
I encourage you to let go of the disappointments that come from the reminders of yesterday. These were rooted in old identities that do not speak of who God says that you are. Let go of these false identities and pay them no mind; dismiss them from your reality. The enemy of your soul would like to keep you stuck there so that you don’t advance into God’s very best for you.
May you build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit, keeping yourselves in the love of God, wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life as reminded in Jude 20-21.
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”
“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God” (Psalm 42:5).
Live “as is” His promise fulfilled and you are the very expression thereof. Live to love to live, and as you do, you become the very love that He is. This is your tree of life is it not? May the peace, love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
