OVERVIEW: When you’re following a promise, you can’t dictate how it will be fulfilled. Trust will be required.
We are meant to have hundreds of encounters and experiences with God this year.
When you’re following a promise, you can’t dictate how it will be fulfilled.
Trust describes the promise. It doesn’t describe the provision because the promise is everything.
The enemy wants to divert us from our promises to our circumstances.
The real prize of a promise is relational.
Faith says, “The promise is mine.” Patience gives us expectation and says “It’s almost here.” Both are needed.
Patience removes stress. We are happy in the waiting.
A promise gives you a stance in your circumstance. It tells you what to be occupied with.
