Are you tired of waiting for a prophetic word to be fulfilled in your life? Have you received it, claimed it, believed for it, fought the good fight of faith with it—and have yet to see it come to pass?
If so, don’t give up! Things can change in a day.
Think about the significant events in the lives of our fathers and mothers in the faith. One day, Sarah, Abraham’s wife, was just an old woman with a barren womb. The next, she was pregnant with the child of promise. After 24 years of waiting for God’s word to come to pass, she was doubtful. But her situation changed—big time—in just one day!
One day, David was being forced to live like a gypsy, running from the armies of King Saul. The next, his enemy was dead, and he was not only a free man but the anointed heir to the throne. David, too, had had a word from God—and after 15 years, he too had probably begun to doubt. But God saw to it that he became king on the appointed day.
There are other examples. What about Esther? One day, she was a young Israelite woman with an uncertain future. The next, she was Ahasuerus’ queen.
One day, Jeremiah was just a kid. The next, he was a prophet to the nation of Israel.
One day, the Jewish people were lost, wondering why the heavens were silent and God no longer spoke to them. The next, they were gazing into the eyes of their long-awaited Messiah.
One day, the disciples were hiding in an upper room for fear of persecution. The next, they were filled with the power of the promised Holy Spirit and eager to preach, teach and work miracles in Jesus’ name.
Now think about your life. Can you point to times when things changed drastically for you—in just a day? read more
