Welcome to a new week people! Tomorrow, the 21st of August makes it a year to the day when I got the manifestation of a miracle I had prayed about for months. Thank God for being faithful to His word (Isa. 40:8). Last week, I mentioned how we get inspiration from God from the weirdest things. Well so it proved this week, while playing Candy Crush!
Being the "OG" that I am, I’ve always been prejudiced against people that played the game and dismissed it as a waste of time, until I downloaded it and played it. I’m still an "OG!" While playing the game, I began to understand the addiction behind the game. When you look beyond the surface, it's a game that teaches you about faith. Strange right? Well the essence of the game is for you to crush the candy but at the same time, I began to learn about not giving up, no matter the obstacle. Also, about holding on till the end because victory awaits those who do not give up!
"But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded!"
II Chronicles 15:7 NKJV.
In order not to give up, you need to be a person of faith. Knowing that regardless of the circumstance, we will be victorious but until the manifestation of what we're praying for, you must hold on. You must be strong (Joshua 1:9). You must faith till the end. Remember, without faith, it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6).
As we go into this new week, live a life of faith (Rom. 1:17, Gal. 3:11, Heb. 10:38). Regardless of the circumstance, declare that you are an overcomer! Search God’s word for a promise concerning your situation, meditate on it and remind Him of His promise to you. The bible says that His promises are yes and amen (2Cor. 1:20) and He is faithful to His word.
P.S. I’m on Level 117 of Candy Crush, played it multiple times to no avail but I shall overcome. I will faith till I overcome!!!
P.P.S. I’ve passed Level 117!! After multiple attempts for the last one week. Time for my victory speech: At this point, I’d like to thank God for always being there. My mama for believing in me when no one did. Love you mama! I had to edit the post to include this lol!
P.P.S. Listen to this awesome song by Travis Greene titled ‘while I’m waiting’:
