Just when I thought the blessing was coming; just when I thought the breakthrough was here, trouble came in like a flood. What’s the problem? I prayed and waited; expecting and hoping for my blessing and my breakthrough. Just when it appeared to be on the way, trouble came. Why? Sometimes it’s darkest before the dawn.
Remember the children of Israel crying out for God to deliver them from bondage and from slavery? When Moses and Aaron came on the scene to deliver them, their work load was made harder. Their situation appeared to get worse. They began to get discouraged. When we are on the brink of our deliverance; on the edge of our breakthrough; on the verge of receiving our blessing, trouble may come to try to distract you… But keep you’re your eyes on the prize; your mind on Jesus and your focus on the promises. Don’t miss out on your blessing just because the enemy is trying to weigh you down with burdens and trouble…. Sometimes it’s darkest before the dawn.
So when you see that you are drawing closer to your dream and nearer to your vision; when you see that you are moving into your purpose; and the plan for your life is unfolding; don’t be fooled by the storms; don’t be distracted by the trouble. Keep pressing forward; keep grabbing hold of your blessing. Don’t turn to the left, and don’t turn to the right. Just pray and keep on moving. Just praise and keep on moving. Just seek God and keep on moving. Don’t stop till you get it. Don’t give up till you see it. Don’t turn back, because it coming! Sometimes it’s darkest before the dawn.
“The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.” Psalm 121:7-8
Love somebody today who doesn’t love you; doesn’t care about you; won’t repay you, can’t repay you and doesn’t want to repay you…then you will be treating them the way God treated you…
