So, if we're completely clear on what God's saying to us, are raring to follow it, and have a bunch of people supporting us in it, it's going to be like a walk in the park. Right?
Well... ummmm... maybe not always. The truth is, sometimes a part of the plan is difficulty. See, God can make anything happen, whichever way He wants to. Your Bible is full of examples. But because of the not-all-powerful human perspective that we have, some stuff looks downright impossible. In reality, we can be following God's plans as well as is humanly possible, but it may still feel like nothing's happening.
At times Abraham must have certainly felt like God had promised Him something impossible. He was heading towards 100 years of age and still the son God had promised hadn't been born. Kind of laughable to think it would happen at that point. But Abraham never (entirely) let those feelings come between him and God's plan. For us, that's often easier said than done. But it's all about turning back to God every time His plan seems uncertain. If that happens, re-visit His original promise and ask Him to keep your faith clear. Isaiah 55:11 NLT is where God says, 'It is the same with My word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.' Keep hold of that.
So what now? Whatever God has promised you will happen. No matter how unlikely it looks. It's coming. He said it!
