It’s Coming - Wait for It
It had been an elongated run of defeat…year after year. No matter how hard the nine year old Montbello Falcons team trained, scrimmaged and competed they consistently lost their football game against the Douglas County Dolphins.
I can imagine the coaches and players desire to win at least one game against the Dolphins. I can hear the yells “Get the ball and run with it” just to end another season with a disappointing loss. Wondering how long will this cycle of defeat repeat itself.
Many of us may feel exactly like this team. Discouraged and wanting to throw in the towel, but quitting is not an option. During this “Season of Yes” you must write the vision, put it in front of you and run with it.
This is exactly how one of the Potter’s World Falcon’s positioned himself to obtain his Yes. He received a vision from God to invite his football team to attend church. By faith he trusted God, invited the players and to his surprise not only did some of the team attend but their parents decided to come along.
Remember God’s plans are always bigger than what we envision. It was in the appointed time when the Falcon players decided to activate their faith and put God first, attend church and afterwards they won their first game ever against the Dolphins.
Before you get your “Yes,” you have to put some things in alignment with God. As you walk in obedience to His commands you will obtain your YES. His timing is not our timing. God is timeless, but we tend to put time frames on Him. God will have us wait, because when it’s all said and done, He will get the glory and bring families to His Kingdom.
In these last 52 days of favor remember what Habakkuk 2:2-3 says, “Write the vision
and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it .For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”
