I Feel Greater Is Coming
By Haywood-Dadzie A.Abeku
Key verse: ....Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:3-4“
"If it had not been for the shaking, I never would have been ready for the making, no. If it had not been for the beating, I would have never knew how anointed I would be. If it had not been for the pressing, I wouldn't be able to walk into my destiny. He’s preparing me, for greater.” Jekalyn Carr’s "I feel greater is coming” lyrics is as powerful as the final verse of Andrea Crouch’s "through it all“, "I thank God for the mountains, and I thank Him for the valleys, I thank Him for the storms He brought me through. For if I'd never had a problem, I wouldn't know God could solve them, I would never know what faith in God could do”
There are times in our lives when it seems as if we are walking through the valleys of shadows of death alone.These are times when the mountains in our live looks unsurmountable, we ask the Lord, why me? and we are tempted to quote Matthew 27:46 "…. ….., My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me."
I guess a situation like that flashed through your mind right now from either your past or even the present, When you wonder how an all-good, all-knowing, all-powerful God could allow you to go through that painful experience; i.e. the man or woman who promised to marry you and abandoned you; the lab test you fasted and prayed for it to be either negative or positive and did not turn up the way you wished: the outcome of that job or visa interview which you wished would have been positive yet made you felt all alone:the prayer for the Lord to save a loved one,yet the Lord took him or her away.
God is not fair sometimes,I guess that's what you will like to say at this juncture. But wait a minute, I can bet on the fact that you have not come the full circle yet. There is coming a day when you will look back and laugh, and see how God's sovereign hand was at work and how all these tears and sorrows worked for your good.
Roman 8:28 says “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. For whom he did FOREKNOW, he also did PREDESTINE…. Moreover whom he did PREDESTINE, them he also CALLED: and whom he CALLED, them he also JUSTIFIED: and whom he JUSTIFIED, them he also GLORIFIED
Child of God, faith that has not been tested cannot be trusted, He is prepering you for greater glory,eventhough you may not understand his entire plan. Look for Him. Trust Him. He is at work.Greater is coming.
