PROPHETIC MESSAGE: THIS IS A MARATHON. NOT A SPRINT.
After a busy morning with my 4 year old I dozed off and heard...
"THIS IS A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT.
PRAY FOR ENDURANCE."
What are YOU contending for? What seems a long time in coming?
Whilst working in labour ward I understood that if women go into birth thinking it's like a sprint ("a piece of cake"), they will be asking me for an epidural at the half way point!
But the moment when it's at its absolute toughest is when it's too late for the epidural cause the promise will soon be birthed!
Don't give up and bail out at the critical moment. NO, keep contending, keep moving and pray for endurance.
And then God answered: “Write this. Write what you see. Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run. This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It’s on its way. It will come right on time.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 MSG
Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.
Romans 4:20-21 NLT
For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.
James 1:3 NLT
