Jesus told Thomas, “Because you’ve seen Me, you have believed. But blessed are those who have not seen, yet believe.” You haven’t seen it, but you keep believing. God says there’s a blessing coming. Because you believe without the evidence, believe without the sign, favor is coming, healing is coming, victory is coming.
Don’t be a Thomas, “God, show me a sign, then I’ll believe. Let my circumstances improve, then I’ll stay in faith. Open this door, then I’ll know You’re working.” God is looking for people who believe without a sign, who are not moved by what they don’t see, who don’t need evidence to prove that God is working.
Isaiah said, “God is longing to be good to people, who are looking for His goodness.” Are you looking for God’s goodness, are you expecting favor, believing to rise higher, to accomplish what He put in your heart. God meets you at the level of your expectations.
If you expect nothing, you’re going to receive nothing. But when you’re thirsty, when you say, “God, I don’t see how, but I know You can do exceedingly, abundantly above all I can ask or think.” You don’t have to figure out how it’s going to happen; all you have to do is believe. God satisfies not the doubting soul, the negative soul, the passive soul. He satisfies the thirsty soul with good things.
One of the best things I’ve learned is to trust God’s timing and trust His ways. What God promised will come to pass, but it may not happen the way you think; it may not be when you had planned.
God can and will make a way for you. Even when it seems impossible, or you might feel like giving up- God never gives up on you. As long as you are still living on earth- God is there for you! Jesus says, “if you have faith as small as a mustard seed you can tell this mountain to move and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
We’re interested in the destination, but God is interested in the journey. He’s working on us along the way. Understand that waiting doesn’t mean nothing is happening; it doesn’t mean that God’s forgotten about us. It’s all a part of the process. Live in faith, knowing that at the right time, God will get us to where we’re supposed to be.
