“For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.”
(Job 14:7 KJV)
Now is your defining moment! However, it is always difficult to believe that God is working on your behalf when all things have turned haywire. Everyone can believe when everything is alright. But the time comes when there is nothing to believe. A time when it looks as though it will never work and you are about to give up hope, yet you have to keep on believing. That is where the rubber meets the road. I don’t know who is reading this devotional right now but I heard the spirit of God say this is your defining moment. The hour has come for the hand of God to be manifested in your life.
It is so easy for people to begin to define you based on where you are. But the truth is that you cannot write off someone who is still sitting under the word of God, no matter how bad his/her case may be. The book of Job tells us that you can cut down a tree and it can even become dried up but as long as the stump perceives the scent of water, it will sprout. This is because God does not work the way we work. I found out that according to God’s calculation, God’s timing starts at night, not in the day. It is man that starts in the day. God starts in the night. When man has tried everything and failed, God then steps into the situation.
Don’t write off yourself. Don’t you understand that it can only be God? He can take you from nothing to something because some things about you have already been concluded and perfected in eternity. The devil cannot undo in time what God has perfected in eternity. The devil may be dancing around but he cannot change it because God perfected and secured it. Your future is colourful.
