Defining Moments in God by Paulette Harper
God has designed a specific plan and purpose for your life. He has plans that are full of exciting moments. Moments that are unforgettable, amazing and worthy of taking note!
These moments are life changing and life altering moments. Moments of divine appointments and connections with people that will help propel you into destiny.
People with great influence that will assist you in advancing and help move you forward in that which God has called you. God has everything under control and in line with His divine will. What kind of future are you hoping for? What God has for you is so much bigger. Think big, believe big because we serve a big God who has no limitations!
You must recognize your moment and seize every opportunity to excel and advance with great momentum. It may appear that things are not going your way and your situation is getting the best of you but remember what was spoken about Abraham as he waited on the promise:
No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God. Fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised.
Romans 4:20-21 Amp
Abraham and Sarah waited for 25 years before the promise came to pass. In between the time of the word that was spoken from the angel of the Lord they faced trials, testing, questions, doubt and Ishmael. Ishmael was conceived out of frustration and impatience.
How many times have we gone ahead of God and started a business which failed because of lack of proper preparation and or knowledge; married the wrong person out of loneliness, desperation and the cravings of the flesh? Took a job just because the pay was good but soon realized that the working conditions were awful?
Abraham & Sarah thought they needed to help God out. But soon found that God was able to bring to pass that which He had spoken. Learning to wait for the promise is something we must all learn to do. Even while God is blessing us we still maybe facing some challenge that seems overwhelming but take courage and remember God is not a man that He should lie. Numbers 23:19 KJV
While we are waiting on the promises we must learn to apply faith, praise and patience because God is not going to bless you before its proper time.
Regardless of the situations you are dealing with, God has great opportunities to show you just how big He really is. We must constantly remind ourselves that these defining moments are birthed out of pain, heartache and sorrows. You must remember that every promise that God gives must be tried and confirmed. Are you ready for the word to be tested in your life?
These defining moments in God are exciting and you will see God back up the word that has been spoken over you.
My confession of faith is this: This is my time, moment and season.
Enjoy your defining moment!
