After My 16th Prophecy Of This Month , Your Life Will Change – Pastor Alph Lukau (Nov 16th 2018)
Bitterness is always knocking at the door. It starts off as a little seed, just a little offense. No big deal. If you ignore it, let it go, nothing will come of it. But if you start dwelling on it, thinking of how you can pay them back, now that little seed is taking root. It’s starting to grow and, before long, it will pollute other areas of your life. That’s why Hebrews 12:15, says, “…that no root of bitterness springs forth and causes trouble and many become contaminated by it.” Notice bitterness is described as a root. You don’t see a root. It’s underground. It’s hidden. But here’s the problem: a bitter root produces bitter fruit. If you have a root of bitterness, it’s going to contaminate your life.
God is in control. If your prayer didn’t get answered the way you wanted it to, don’t get discouraged; God has something better in mind for you. Be patient. Learn how to wait upon the Lord. Trust that He has something wonderful waiting for you that your human mind cannot even begin to grasp.
Keep praying. Keep watching. Keep waiting. God hears your prayers—He sees your need—He is in complete control, and He knows all. There are three answers to your prayer: yes, no, or wait. If God is telling you to wait, then it means you are just not quite ready for the amazing things He has in store for you.
** A Note to Self **
If you’re doing what God has asked you to do, your problem will be solved. It may look like another lap, but there’s a lesson in it. God’s leading you, He’s growing you, He’s showing you how good He can be in your life. When He’s done, the world will recognize there’s a God in heaven and His power is real.Ask the Lord to give you the good news while you’re dealing with today’s news. His promises are true and His Word does not return void. “There’s a lesson in every lap in life. It goes without saying that God’s ways are not our ways. Sometimes the routes He takes and the courses He charts seem to be so out of the way and opposite of the path we would have taken.”
