Who Has the Final Say

“But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:24

Yes, God is a faithful God! We may be praying for things that haven’t happened yet, but just because things aren’t happening on our timetable doesn’t mean they aren’t going to happen. As long as what we are asking for is in God’s will ~ that is why we need to pray for His will to be done not our own ~ then we will see things happen, WHAT a promise that is!

Don’t give up on that promise ~ God has the final say. Don’t let discouragement or negative thoughts talk you out of it ~ get your fire back! Get your passion back. If God said it, He will do it. If God spoke it, He will bring it to pass.

This is what the apostle Paul did in scripture. He said, “None of these things move me.” What were “these things?” They were circumstances that looked impossible ~ Persecution ~ People trying to talk him out of it ~ Negative, discouraging thoughts. His attitude was, “That doesn’t change my mind. I’m not moved by what I see. I’m moved by what I know, and I know if God be for me, who dare be against me? I know all of God’s promises are yes and amen. I know God has the final say!”

Father, I choose to trust You over trusting my circumstances, knowing that You are faithful. I choose to stand strong in You. Give me Your peace and joy as I wait on You and let me be a testimony of Your grace in Jesus’ name. Amen.
