Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“So be patient and then persevere, for what God has promised is sure to come.” Surah Ghaafir – QN40:55, reminds those who God promised something and are having a hard time waiting because humanly speaking, they see no way it can come to pass that when God makes a promise, it is like a seed which must first be planted in the fertile soil of faith and given time to grow which thereafter, must be watered regularly through prayer and in-depth studying His Word.
In other words, if we stand on His Word and keep reminding ourselves of His promises, we will live to see them fulfiled in our lifetime.
So let the knowledge that:
1) God does things on His own schedule and nothing the enemy does can ever pre-empt His plans for our lives;
2) When we come to Him, we must do so believing, deep in our hearts, that He is a rewarder of those who believe in Him; and
3) He will keep testing us to build our strength and see whether it holds up to or falls apart under pressure – QN2:155-157;
Teach you, even in the face of mounting difficulties, to keep on walking in faith and thank God it’s Friday!
Pray with me: O Allah! Grant me the ability to satisfy You with my life, and let Your grace be sufficient for me now and always, O The Omniscient, The Strengthener! Amin
Good morning. Jumah Kareem and a joyful weekend ahead!
