…thanking God for His answers….
A sunrise doesn’t occur ‘til after many hours of night…but then it begins to appear with ever-increasing light!
Likewise, that very miracle which seems to be delayed, will dawn for you if you don’t lose faith in the promises God has made.
Remember your part is believing with your heart, with your voice confessing—that you’ve spoken to the mountain in Jesus’ name—it can’t stand in the way of your blessing.
An important fact to remember and voice is that the devil is defeated. Whenever a negative thought casts doubt, that fact should be firmly repeated.
So, patience, praise, and the joy of the LORD are needed in the nighttime hour…before that miracle dawn breaks forth. At work within us is God’s power!
P. A. Oltrogge

Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” Colossians 2:13-15 from 11-15
