Why God Sometimes Says ‘Not Yet’?

“You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, ‘In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.’” (Hebrews 10:36-37 NIV)

If you’re discouraged because of God’s delay in answering your prayers, understand the delay is not a denial. Just because the answer or the miracle hasn’t come yet doesn’t mean God isn’t going to answer or that he’s forgotten you or that he doesn’t care about you. It simply means “not yet”!

Part of becoming spiritually mature is learning the difference between “no” and “not yet,” between a denial and a delay. The Bible tells us, “He who is coming will come and will not delay” (Hebrews 10:37 NIV).

God’s delay may be a test of your patience. Anybody can be patient once. And, most people can be patient twice. And, a lot of us can be patient three times. So God tests our patience over and over and over.

Why? So he can see how patient you are? No!

He does it so you can see how patient you are — so you’ll know what’s inside you, and you’ll be able to know your level of commitment. God tests you so that you can know he is faithful, even if the answers you seek are delayed.

You may be going through difficult times right now. You may be discouraged because the situation you face seems unmanageable, unreasonable, or unfair.

It may seem unbearable, and inside you’re basically saying, “God, I can’t take it anymore. I just can’t take it anymore!”

But you can.

You can stay with it longer because God is with you. He’ll enable you to press on. Remember, you are never a failure until you quit. Resist discouragement, and finish the race God has set before you.

You Are Valuable

1When you try to ride through life, you realize many things about yourself. You are different from others, stop comparing yourself. How you do and learn things is in a different phase from others. Comparing yourself to others will just bring pressure to you and how you do things. Enjoy the process of learning, and you’ll be amazed how you accomplish things on your ownterms.

You are valuable as an individual. Society has taught us that if we do not measure with the most talented people then we are not good enough, and that is wrong. We are valuable, who we are, and our talents are different from each other. When you compare to others because you want to improve then that is a good motivation.

Everyone is different; we all have our strengths and individual value. You just have to figure out your own strength to be able to excel in what you are doing. So you can still improve yourself and master it. To be able to master the skill, you need to do it many times, to practice and have patience to do it.

When you face battles in your life, you must realize that God intended you to be different in order for you to win. Bishop E Bernard Jordan has created a book called, “Spiritual Art of War” which discusses different strategies and Biblical ways for you gain victory in life. Click here to get your copy today.

The Powerful Key to Prayer

“And I tell you more: whenever two of you on earth agree about anything you pray for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them” (Matthew 18:19-20 TEV)

If you look at the Lord’s Prayer, you’ll see that it reflects praying together: “Our Father . . . give us . . . our daily bread . . . forgive us our debts . . . as we also have forgiven our debtors . . . lead us not into temptation . . . deliver us . . . (Matthew 6:9-13 NIV, emphasis mine).

Many of us miss out on so much because we only pray by ourselves. Yet, when Jesus gave us an outline for prayer, He spoke about praying together. There is power in group prayer.

If you’re not praying with other believers, then you’re not getting the support you need. You’re missing out on one of the major benefits of being a Christian. Jesus says “whenever two of you on earth agree
about anything you pray for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them (Matthew 18:19-20 TEV). That’s the power of praying with other people.

Ask yourself, “Who am I consistently praying with on a regular basis?” You may be saying you’ve never prayed with anybody before and it scares you to death. It’s okay to start slow. When you get together with five or six other friends, you don’t have to pray if you don’t want to; you can sit there and be quiet.

Then, after several weeks, as you become more comfortable, you can begin to participate more in the group’s prayers. You’ll find a new level of stability in your life.

If you’ve never prayed with other people, start by praying aloud when you’re alone. I do most of my praying, more than any other place, on the freeway. I’m driving down the road and talking aloud to the Lord, “Lord, here are some things I want to talk with you about today.”

Another suggestion is to pray at meals. Our family holds hands; sometimes we pray sentence prayers such as thank you prayers to God for what he has done for us.

Praying together is another form of worshipping God.

The Harvest Principle: God Alone Supplies

“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness” (2 Corinthians 9:10 NIV).

You must decide you will look to God only as your source of supply. You need to tell God that you’re going to look to Him alone to provide for your needs and that you won’t look anywhere else.

We get ourselves in trouble when we confuse the channel with the source. God may use your paycheck from work as the channel to supply your needs, but your employer is just the channel for God’s
provision—and God can shift to another channel anytime he wants.

When you start to look to something or someone else to meet your needs, when you begin to confuse the channel with the source, there is a clear warning sign: Worry!

Say you’ve started looking to your job as the source, instead of the channel. You may start worrying, “What if I lose my job?” You know what? That channel may close, but the source of your every need is
still active and providing for you. When God turns off one channel, he can turn on another one.

Once you know what you’re lacking, you need to give God the right to choose whatever channel He decides to fulfill the need. It may be a channel different from one you would choose; in fact, God may
deliberately choose a different channel in order to teach you to keep looking to him for all your needs.

I have learned, as a Christian for nearly forty years, that it’s exciting to just let God be God. It’s exciting to watch God meet a need in a way that you never thought possible or could have never thought up on your own.

God alone is the source of your supply.

Don’t Stop

1If you find yourself content with the amount of success you have achieved, and feel no other need to outdo yourself then you have stopped reaching for excellence. You need to constantly work on your skills, practice them and engage them. You need to expose yourself to new things and new challenges otherwise you are simply lounging in a newly established comfort zone. You have not the war just yet. Maybe you are taking a rest from your little battles, but something bigger might come to you and you could be completely unprepared for it. Bishop Jordan wants you to be ready when enemies attack out of no where, and this is why it’s important that you get to read the “Spiritual Art of War” inspired by the strategist, Sun Tzu and the master strategist himself, God.

Surrounding yourself with the right people will keep you motivated. Those that are hard-working and driven are the people you should be around. Traits and characteristics can rub off on you.

If you spend your time with people who have good traits, you will be compelled to do the same. At times when you feel you begin to be complacent, seeing people who laze around and squander their time engaging in the wrong things will only make you feel entitled to do the same. You might think that you are better off than these people anyways so you have the license to take a rest from trying to do everything so well. On the other hand if your close friends are constantly and uncompromisingly making progress, you will want to raise yourself to the challenge yourself everyday. Excellence is not something you take a break from, it is a character that you mold within yourself so that one day it will be a permanent practice you will be known for.

Taking Risks

1We all have the potential for excellence. Each of us is blessed with different talents, skills and characteristics that can pave our way towards our goals in life. Our fear of failure can lead us to doubt the strength and capacity of our blessings. We may see our goals clearly but cloud our ability to make it happen with doubt. You must believe in yourself and in what you are doing in order to be excellent at it. Those who want to succeed take the risks and win their personal battles in life.

If you believe in your God-given abilities, your confidence will drive you forward. Stop second guessing yourself and believe in your own ability. Excellence is attained with strong conviction.

Think of the fears you keep inside and reflect on how they derail you from growing into the person you’ve always wanted to be. Instead, believe in your own abilities. God blessed you with life because He believes in you.

Have you turned promising opportunities down because of a little risk? Asses the decisions you have to make using logic but without fear. Taking the right risks will lead you to become a must stronger, more experienced and more driven person.

When you read the “Spiritual Art of War” you will realize how easy it is to finally gain victory in your own life. Bishop E Bernard Jordan wishes for you to win life’s battles and start becoming successful! Click here to start winning your spiritual and personal battles today.

Power and Humility

1Ever wondered how the most successful business people achieved their goals? How they became billionaires from being flat broke? It’s because they know every strategy in the war of life. They are powerful, yet humble. And they know that the most important relationship they need to have is a relationship with God.

In Matthew 6, Jesus commands us to keep our intentions private: “‘But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place…’” (Matthew 6:6a). Never boast, never brag; just as important, never show defeat, never show vulnerability. The mightiest warfare in the kingdom of Heaven is done behind the scenes,in secret.That’s where the real power is, and we know this because that’s how our God of war operates.

If God is on your side, you will always be victorious. Remember that God is a God of war, and whatever challenges you face, He will make sure that you win. Bishop E. Bernard Jordan has created a book inspired by Sun Tzu’s war strategies and has infused Bible stories that tell us of the wars that God has won for His people.
