“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At
just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give
(Galatians 6:9, NLT)
Are you praying for something that’s taking longer than
you thought or expected? No matter how long you may have been standing on God’s
promises, don’t give up! Your season is coming. Your harvest of blessing is on
its way. It might be today, it might be tomorrow, it might be next week, next
month or next year; but remember, at just the right time, you will experience
Be encouraged today because God is faithful and His
promises are true. Keep standing, keep hoping, keep believing. Keep doing good.
Keep declaring the promises of God over your life. Choose to be around people
who are going to encourage you and fill your heart and mind with God’s Word. Let
a song of praise come out of your mouth. Press on in faith and keep an attitude
of victory. Don’t get tired of doing what is right because your harvest of
blessing is on the way!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your goodness and
faithfulness in my life. Thank You for refreshing and renewing my heart. Fill me

until I see my harvest of blessing in Jesus’ name. Amen.
“Since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, ‘I believed and therefore I spoke,’ we also believe and therefore speak”
(2 Corinthians 4:13, NKJV)
Scripture says, “The spirit of faith is in our words.” My question today is, “What’s coming out of your mouth?” Are you talking about how big your problems are, or are you talking about how big your God is?
As believers, our attitude should always be an attitude of praise — “Father, business may be slow, but I want to thank You that You’re supplying all of my needs.” “My circumstance may seem impossible, but thank You, God, that all things are possible with You!” We should always find a reason to give thanks!
This is what Jonah did. After complaining for eight verses, he had a change of heart in verse nine. He said, “God, in spite of my difficulties, I’m going to offer unto You the sacrifice of praise with a voice of thanksgiving.” While sitting in the belly of the whale, instead of complaining, he began to worship. The next verse says that the whale spit him out onto dry ground, and he went on to fulfill his destiny.
If you feel like you’re in the belly of a whale, if you feel trapped, if things seem dark, remember, praise always precedes the victory! Open your mouth and declare His praises! Say what the Word says and watch the breakthrough come to pass!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father God, I humbly come to You in the precious name of Jesus Christ. I commit my words and thoughts to You. I choose to say what the Word says. I choose to speak the truth and trust that You are working for my good in Jesus’ name. Amen.
