I know it’ll happen any day now, the big break that will take my life to the next level of happiness, hope, and potential. Do you feel that too? Are you waiting for your big break? A sudden flood of cash, a career boost, a knight in shining armor, a launch to fame, the perfect alignment of time and money so that you can finally accomplish your dream?
Sometimes waiting is the practice of godly patience. Sometimes it is purely an act of futility, a deferment of living. Don’t you know….while we’re waiting for our respective by break, God is waiting for a break in our holding pattern? He’s hoping we’ll recognize the happiness, hope, and potential in the day we’re living, the relationship we are in, and the dream we’re walking toward.
Dear Lord, I put my future in your hands and ask that You would give me total peace about it. I want to be in the center of Your plans for my life, knowing You have given me everything I need for what is ahead. I pray You would give me strength to endure without giving up. You have said that “he who endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22). Help me to run the race in a way that I shall finish strong and receive the prize You have for me (1 Corinthians 9:24). Help me to be always watchful in my prayers, because I don’t know when the end of my life will be (1 Peter 4:7).
Lord, I know Your thought toward me are of peace, to give me a future and hope (Jeremiah 29:11). I know that You have saved me and called me with holy calling, not according to my works, but according to Your own purpose and grace (2 Timothy 1:9). Thank You, Father, that You are always with me and will guide me on the path so that I won’t lose my way. Move me into powerful ministry that will impact the lives of others for Your kingdom and Your glory. I reach out for Your hand today so I can walk with You into the future You have for me.
In Jesus name I pray
But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing, to declare that the Lord is upright.
