EVERYTHING Is BEAUTIFUL In GOD'S TIME! | Christina Sermon

  • 0:00 - 0:09
    Hannah's tears were like liquid words,
    and God could read them all.
  • 0:09 - 0:13
    The Lord understands the language
    of tears,
  • 0:13 - 0:19
    sighs, groans and earnest heart desires.
  • 0:21 - 0:26
    Grace and peace to you all in Jesus’ name.
  • 0:26 - 0:29
    Well, hello, everybody.
    My name is Christina.
  • 0:29 - 0:34
    And by the grace of God,
    I have the incredible privilege
  • 0:34 - 0:38
    of sharing God's Word with you today.
  • 0:38 - 0:41
    I am so excited to be in your midst today.
  • 0:41 - 0:46
    And I have a wonderful opportunity
    to remind us
  • 0:46 - 0:52
    that the plan of God for
    our lives is beautiful.
  • 0:52 - 0:56
    Amen! Do you believe that today?
  • 0:56 - 1:00
    If you do, tell your neighbour
    or if you don't have a neighbour,
  • 1:00 - 1:03
    tell me and I will tell you,
  • 1:03 - 1:08
    “The plan of God for your life is beautiful.”
  • 1:08 - 1:20
    And just as we have natural seasons in the world, Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11 reminds us that,
  • 1:20 - 1:29
    “There is time for everything, a season for every activity under the heavens.”
  • 1:29 - 1:38
    Ecclesiastes 3:11, “God has made everything beautiful in its time.
  • 1:38 - 1:44
    He has also set eternity in the human heart.
  • 1:44 - 1:51
    Yet no one can fathom what God has done
    from beginning to the end.”
  • 1:51 - 1:58
    What a beautiful picture it is to see people from all over the world joining us today.
  • 1:58 - 2:01
    Some of you will be in the southern hemisphere where you've been
  • 2:01 - 2:04
    experiencing your winter season.
  • 2:04 - 2:07
    Some of you will be in those countries closer to the continent
  • 2:07 - 2:10
    where the seasons are a little bit
    more stable.
  • 2:10 - 2:18
    Well, here in the United Kingdom,
    we have very diverse natural seasons.
  • 2:18 - 2:23
    Right now, we are coming to the end of our summer season
  • 2:23 - 2:26
    where the temperature is a little bit warmer,
  • 2:26 - 2:34
    fruit trees display their crops and the sun sets late into the evening.
  • 2:34 - 2:40
    In the coming months, we’ll experience the autumn season, where the landscape turns
  • 2:40 - 2:46
    gold and brown and children play in the falling leaves.
  • 2:46 - 2:49
    But then, we experience
    the winter season -
  • 2:49 - 2:59
    that cold, dark season where the temperature drops and daylight is limited.
  • 2:59 - 3:06
    Just when we feel as if winter will never end, the spring season boldly announces
  • 3:06 - 3:15
    its colourful character and we see daffodils blossom and all manner of flowers bloom.
  • 3:15 - 3:21
    Now, I personally dislike the winter season most of all.
  • 3:21 - 3:25
    But, of course, I have confidence in the laws of nature
  • 3:25 - 3:30
    that ensure winter doesn’t last forever.
  • 3:30 - 3:35
    And above all, we all understand that each season serves a purpose.
  • 3:35 - 3:44
    After all, there must be seed time and summer time before the autumn reaping.
  • 3:44 - 3:49
    But then I ask myself, ‘If we can have so much confidence
  • 3:49 - 3:54
    in the laws of nature when it comes to natural seasons,
  • 3:54 - 4:01
    how much more confidence should we have in God - the God of nature,
  • 4:01 - 4:04
    the God of the heavens and the earth -
  • 4:04 - 4:08
    when it comes to the various seasons in our lives?’
  • 4:08 - 4:14
    I ask myself, ‘Can I apply
    even greater faith in God
  • 4:14 - 4:24
    during those dark, harsh winter seasons of my life manifested in life's tests and trials?
  • 4:24 - 4:28
    Do I trust God that they won’t last forever?
  • 4:28 - 4:36
    And above all, do I recognise that each season in my life serves a purpose?’
  • 4:36 - 4:41
    This will bring us to the title
    of our message today,
  • 4:41 - 4:48
    “Everything is beautiful in God's time.”
  • 4:48 - 4:52
    The Bible says that for everything,
    there is time and season -
  • 4:52 - 4:59
    a time to labour and a time to reap the products of grace.
  • 4:59 - 5:09
    So, give God time. The results are working themselves out slowly but surely.
  • 5:09 - 5:19
    Now, I have a packet of seeds with me here today, and according to this packet,
  • 5:19 - 5:25
    this seed has the potential to become a sweet pea flower.
  • 5:25 - 5:27
    But you know what?
  • 5:27 - 5:33
    As long as I keep these seeds here,
    in the God's Heart TV Studio,
  • 5:33 - 5:37
    in this beautiful and
    comfortable surrounding,
  • 5:37 - 5:44
    this seed will never fulfil its potential because seeds are for sowing.
  • 5:44 - 5:49
    And, no matter the picture of what
    they've written about this seed becoming,
  • 5:49 - 5:56
    seeds are powerless until they are planted.
  • 5:56 - 6:05
    We also have a picture of an amazing apple tree on display with me right here.
  • 6:05 - 6:08
    Wow! Beautiful fruit!
  • 6:08 - 6:16
    But if this tree could talk, it would tell you that what you are seeing here did not just happen.
  • 6:16 - 6:20
    No! It took time and patience.
  • 6:20 - 6:28
    If this tree could talk, it would tell you that it was once a tiny seed that was pushed
  • 6:28 - 6:33
    into a deep, dark hole in the ground.
  • 6:33 - 6:39
    It will tell you, if that wasn't enough,
    soil much heavier than its own weight,
  • 6:39 - 6:41
    was pushed on top of it.
  • 6:41 - 6:47
    But this was necessary for that seed to germinate and discover its roots -
  • 6:47 - 6:54
    roots that would go deep into the ground to absorb nutrients from the soil
  • 6:54 - 6:58
    and absorb water, to give it strength.
  • 6:58 - 7:04
    And that strength eventually empowered that seed to push its way through
  • 7:04 - 7:07
    that heavy soil towards the light.
  • 7:07 - 7:12
    And here it is today, a fruitful tree.
  • 7:12 - 7:16
    Yes, everything is beautiful in its time.
  • 7:16 - 7:21
    But like the changing seasons,
    that time is limited.
  • 7:21 - 7:25
    Often, when we are young,
    we think we can go it all alone
  • 7:25 - 7:31
    without any reference to God,
    but little do we recognise
  • 7:31 - 7:34
    that everything has its time and season,
  • 7:34 - 7:38
    that man may toil and work hard,
  • 7:38 - 7:45
    but it is the duty of God to determine the time and season of the harvest.
  • 7:45 - 7:55
    What is your situation today? Do you feel as if you have been planting those seeds,
  • 7:55 - 8:03
    as if you have been praying over those situations, but you are waiting, longing
  • 8:03 - 8:07
    to eat the fruit of your labour?
  • 8:07 - 8:10
    Do you feel like you are
    in a deep, dark place?
  • 8:10 - 8:16
    Maybe you have been praying over a particular ailment, a problem or a crisis.
  • 8:16 - 8:20
    Maybe you're not sure if there is any corresponding action
  • 8:20 - 8:24
    or how to get your head above it all.
  • 8:24 - 8:28
    Let me encourage you today.
  • 8:28 - 8:36
    Maybe God allowed you, like that seed,
    to be in that deep, dark place
  • 8:36 - 8:42
    that you could discover your roots in God to become that man or woman of faith.
  • 8:42 - 8:47
    That by drawing on God's resources,
    you too can push your way up
  • 8:47 - 8:52
    through that sickness, through that trial,
    through that oppression
  • 8:52 - 8:57
    and begin to produce good fruits.
  • 8:57 - 9:05
    Now, the way that God executes His plan in our lives differs.
  • 9:05 - 9:08
    We may have been praying over a particular matter.
  • 9:08 - 9:13
    I mean, even today, you may have been listening to testimonies
  • 9:13 - 9:17
    or looking around at people who are sharing what God has done
  • 9:17 - 9:22
    and saying, ‘God, when will it be my turn?’
  • 9:22 - 9:26
    Instead of rejoicing, you find yourself asking God,
  • 9:26 - 9:31
    ‘Oh Lord, I need my own breakthrough! When is my own coming?’
  • 9:31 - 9:35
    Maybe you are looking around at people in your life and saying,
  • 9:35 - 9:42
    ‘Oh, everybody seems to be getting a job these days but I can't even get an interview!
  • 9:42 - 9:45
    Wow. All my friends are getting married.
  • 9:45 - 9:50
    They're on their second and third child already. Am I left behind?’
  • 9:50 - 9:54
    Or maybe you're saying, ‘Oh, everybody around me seems to be
  • 9:54 - 9:58
    on the housing ladder, buying homes.
  • 9:58 - 10:02
    But here am I, unable to even
    rent my own apartment.’
  • 10:02 - 10:05
    You think they're further ahead of you.
  • 10:05 - 10:10
    But I want to tell you that
    God is still saying something.
  • 10:10 - 10:12
    God has not abandoned you.
  • 10:12 - 10:14
    He has not neglected you.
  • 10:14 - 10:17
    He has not decided that you are not good enough, not smart enough,
  • 10:17 - 10:21
    not beautiful or handsome enough.
    No! He has not.
  • 10:21 - 10:27
    But the way and manner God executes His plan in our lives differs.
  • 10:27 - 10:32
    Today, I want us to draw strength from the life of Hannah.
  • 10:32 - 10:38
    And we will understand that everything is beautiful in God's time.
  • 10:38 - 10:49
    So, let us open our Bibles at
    the book of 1 Samuel 1:2.
  • 10:49 - 10:57
    Now it says, “Elkana had two wives; one was called Hannah and the other Peninnah.
  • 10:57 - 11:01
    Peninnah had children,
    but Hannah had none.”
  • 11:01 - 11:06
    1 Samuel 1:6 - “Because the Lord had closed Hannah’s womb,
  • 11:06 - 11:10
    her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her.
  • 11:10 - 11:14
    This went on year after year.”
  • 11:14 - 11:19
    Hannah was a barren woman
    in a polygamous marriage
  • 11:19 - 11:23
    where Peninnah, the provoking rival,
  • 11:23 - 11:29
    not only received what Hannah had been praying for year after year
  • 11:29 - 11:32
    but at the same time,
    she was provoking her!
  • 11:32 - 11:39
    Peninnah had children year after year but Hannah did not.
  • 11:39 - 11:46
    Instead, Hannah remained barren year after year.
  • 11:46 - 11:53
    Clearly, Hannah could have fallen into that lethal trap of comparing herself
  • 11:53 - 11:57
    with Peninnah, the provoking rival.
  • 11:57 - 12:00
    Because Hannah would come before the Lord and pray
  • 12:00 - 12:06
    but she would just see Peninnah having children time and time again.
  • 12:06 - 12:10
    When you compare yourself with others,
  • 12:10 - 12:17
    you choose to take your focus off God and His perfect will for your life.
  • 12:17 - 12:22
    Instead, you end up nurturing unhealthy patterns of thinking,
  • 12:22 - 12:29
    which in turn develop into full blown bitterness, jealousy, depression.
  • 12:29 - 12:34
    But God's Word is the remedy
    for every malady.
  • 12:34 - 12:40
    So if you are struggling to conquer comparison and find yourself feeling,
  • 12:40 - 12:43
    ‘Lord, when is it my turn?’ -
  • 12:43 - 12:47
    instead of rejoicing at people's testimonies, you feel left out -
  • 12:47 - 12:50
    then let this Word of God encourage you right now.
  • 12:50 - 12:55
    Allow this Word of God in the midst of your heart and something inside of you,
  • 12:55 - 13:02
    a powerful force called faith, will allow you to fix your focus again on God
  • 13:02 - 13:07
    and His will for your life, and not on that of those around you.
  • 13:07 - 13:13
    Let us continue to read.
    So it says in 1 Samuel 1:7,
  • 13:13 - 13:17
    “This went on year after year.
  • 13:17 - 13:21
    Whenever Hannah went up to
    the house of the Lord,
  • 13:21 - 13:26
    her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat.
  • 13:26 - 13:30
    Her husband Elkanah would say to her, ‘Hannah, why are you weeping?
  • 13:30 - 13:33
    Why don’t you eat?
    Why are you downhearted?
  • 13:33 - 13:38
    Don’t I mean more to you than ten sons?”
  • 13:38 - 13:41
    Take note of what happened to Hannah
  • 13:41 - 13:45
    Whenever she went up to
    the house of the Lord,
  • 13:45 - 13:49
    when she had made that decision to come before God with her situation,
  • 13:49 - 13:56
    that was the time the provocation was at its most intense.
  • 13:56 - 14:02
    You see right now, as you have made that decision to come before God,
  • 14:02 - 14:07
    to join us for today’s Interactive Prayer Service, there will be distractions.
  • 14:07 - 14:12
    There will be things poking you, maybe disappointing you or trying to derail you,
  • 14:12 - 14:18
    to take your eyes off what God is doing,
    to get you out of faith.
  • 14:18 - 14:19
    Think about it.
  • 14:19 - 14:24
    What distractions right now are screaming for your attention?
  • 14:24 - 14:28
    What seeming conflicting priorities are trying to pull you away
  • 14:28 - 14:33
    from this moment right now -
    your Divine appointment with Jesus Christ!
  • 14:33 - 14:38
    As a Christian, it is your duty to divorce yourself from those distractions
  • 14:38 - 14:43
    so that you can come and fix your attention on the Word of God.
  • 14:43 - 14:46
    Focus is your personal decision.
  • 14:46 - 14:51
    So right now, make that decision
    to put every distraction aside.
  • 14:51 - 14:53
    Let’s continue to read in 1 Samuel 1:9.
  • 14:53 - 14:59
    “Once when they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh, Hannah stood up.
  • 14:59 - 15:06
    Now Eli the priest was sitting on his chair by the doorpost in the Lord’s house.”
  • 15:06 - 15:12
    Hannah made the wisest choice to come before God with her situation.
  • 15:12 - 15:17
    She stood up, separated herself from provoking Peninnah
  • 15:17 - 15:20
    and came before God as she was.
  • 15:20 - 15:25
    Like Hannah, maybe you too need to distance yourself from those who love
  • 15:25 - 15:30
    to provoke your weakness or from that which distracts.
  • 15:30 - 15:34
    The Bible says Hannah had finished eating and drinking,
  • 15:34 - 15:41
    knowing that only Someone much greater could satisfy.
  • 15:41 - 15:46
    Like Hannah, maybe you too need to stand up from that table of distraction
  • 15:46 - 15:49
    where you consume the pointless pleasures of this world,
  • 15:49 - 15:57
    and look to the One who makes food, drink or whatever it is you’re relying on, insufficient.
  • 15:57 - 16:01
    What do I mean by those pointless
    pleasures of this world?
  • 16:01 - 16:05
    I mean, those things that
    prop you up temporarily -
  • 16:05 - 16:09
    those things that seem to pacify
    your inner needs,
  • 16:09 - 16:13
    but they leave you hungry
    and wanting more.
  • 16:13 - 16:18
    It could be the dopamine hit you receive while scrolling through social media.
  • 16:18 - 16:24
    It could be the escapism of watching that romantic movie.
  • 16:24 - 16:25
    It could be lust.
  • 16:25 - 16:26
    It could be pornography.
  • 16:26 - 16:29
    It could be masturbation.
  • 16:29 - 16:33
    You know, what we have downloaded
    from this world
  • 16:33 - 16:40
    can infiltrate our mind and infect our heart.
  • 16:40 - 16:44
    Just like an electronic device
    that has downloaded a virus
  • 16:44 - 16:51
    and needs to be reset back to its factory default settings, we too need to be reset.
  • 16:51 - 16:53
    We need to be refocused.
  • 16:53 - 16:56
    We need a Divine detox.
  • 16:56 - 17:02
    We need a righteous revival through Scriptural solution.
  • 17:02 - 17:06
    So Hannah chose to put those things aside
  • 17:06 - 17:10
    and seek the One who made food
    and drink insufficient.
  • 17:10 - 17:14
    Let us continue to read in 1 Samuel 1:10.
  • 17:14 - 17:20
    “In her deep anguish Hannah prayed to the Lord, weeping bitterly.
  • 17:20 - 17:25
    And she made a vow, saying, ‘Lord Almighty, if you will only look
  • 17:25 - 17:29
    on your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant
  • 17:29 - 17:34
    but give her a son, then I will give him to the Lord for all the days of his life,
  • 17:34 - 17:39
    and no razor will ever be used on his head.’
  • 17:39 - 17:45
    As she kept on praying to the Lord,
    Eli observed her mouth.
  • 17:45 - 17:50
    Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving
  • 17:50 - 17:54
    but her voice was not heard.”
  • 17:54 - 17:58
    You see, when Hannah came
    before the Lord,
  • 17:58 - 18:04
    she was not known for her fancy prayer points or eloquent speech.
  • 18:04 - 18:07
    She did not employ any special
    prayer techniques.
  • 18:07 - 18:16
    No! She came before the Lord and cried because that was where she was at.
  • 18:16 - 18:26
    But Hannah's tears were like liquid words, and God could read them all.
  • 18:26 - 18:32
    As it says in Psalm 38:9,
  • 18:32 - 18:39
    ‘All my longings lie open before You, Lord. My sighing is not hidden from You.’
  • 18:39 - 18:46
    This goes to show that the Lord understands the language of tears,
  • 18:46 - 18:52
    sighs, groans and earnest heart desires.
  • 18:52 - 18:58
    He understands because He sees your heart, not your outward posture,
  • 18:58 - 19:02
    not your eloquent speech or the tone of your voice.
  • 19:02 - 19:05
    You see, many people go to church today
    and pray loud prayers,
  • 19:05 - 19:10
    but only the Lord knows the heart.
  • 19:10 - 19:16
    Or whether they're just there to connect with people after the service for selfish gain.
  • 19:16 - 19:22
    Remember, there is no special formula for receiving answer to prayer.
  • 19:22 - 19:25
    Only faith pleases God.
  • 19:25 - 19:29
    So whether you cry aloud
    like Blind Bartimaeus
  • 19:29 - 19:34
    or you cry silently like Hannah in Shiloh,
  • 19:34 - 19:40
    or whether you sit quietly before your mountain like the man at the pool of Bethesda,
  • 19:40 - 19:47
    one thing is clear - if your action is genuine, the Holy Spirit will affect it.
  • 19:47 - 19:51
    So come as you are. God see your heart.
  • 19:51 - 19:53
    He sees your faith.
  • 19:53 - 19:58
    Let us read what happened
    next in 1 Samuel 1:17.
  • 19:58 - 20:04
    “Eli answered, ‘Go in peace,
    and may the God of Israel
  • 20:04 - 20:07
    grant you what you have asked of Him.’
  • 20:07 - 20:11
    She said, ‘May your servant find favour in your eyes.’
  • 20:11 - 20:18
    Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.”
  • 20:18 - 20:24
    Why? Because she took that Word of God from Eli, the priest, to heart
  • 20:24 - 20:29
    and trusted in God's promises, knowing that God would make it good.
  • 20:29 - 20:34
    1 Samuel 1:19 - “Early the next morning they arose and worshipped before the Lord
  • 20:34 - 20:37
    and then went back to
    their home at Ramah.
  • 20:37 - 20:43
    Elkanah made love to his wife Hannah,
    and the Lord remembered her.
  • 20:43 - 20:50
    So in the course of time Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son.
  • 20:50 - 20:57
    She named him Samuel, saying, ‘Because I asked the Lord for him.’
  • 20:57 - 21:05
    Wow! You know, the Bible here does not tell us how long that ‘course of time’ was.
  • 21:05 - 21:09
    But Hannah was strengthened
    by God's Word.
  • 21:09 - 21:11
    She had a look of faith to God's Word.
  • 21:11 - 21:16
    She took that Word to heart,
    and that gave her the strength
  • 21:16 - 21:22
    to endure that course of time,
    knowing that God was in the process
  • 21:22 - 21:27
    of changing that barrenness
    to fruitfulness.
  • 21:27 - 21:31
    This goes to show that there's
    two types of waiting -
  • 21:31 - 21:35
    waiting in faith and waiting by sight.
  • 21:35 - 21:44
    Those who wait by sight say, ‘I will not believe it until I feel or see it.’
  • 21:44 - 21:51
    But those who wait in faith say,
    ‘If God has said it, I will believe it,
  • 21:51 - 22:00
    even if I don't feel or see it - because I am not ruled by my senses but I act on God’s Word.’
  • 22:00 - 22:04
    Those who wait by sight wait in doubt.
  • 22:04 - 22:08
    They are overwhelmed
    by their circumstances.
  • 22:08 - 22:11
    They are easily disturbed
    at the slightest provocation
  • 22:11 - 22:17
    because they are ruled by their senses and what their situation has to say.
  • 22:17 - 22:20
    If Hannah had waited by sight,
  • 22:20 - 22:23
    she would have become overwhelmed
    by her situation.
  • 22:23 - 22:28
    She would have left the house of God
    in anger and frustration.
  • 22:28 - 22:32
    But instead she took hold of God's Word,
  • 22:32 - 22:37
    believing that everything would be beautiful in God's time.
  • 22:37 - 22:44
    And when Samuel finally came, she was ready to give him up to the Lord.
  • 22:44 - 22:51
    Because that process of waiting was to mature her.
  • 22:51 - 22:54
    It was to increase her prayer life.
  • 22:54 - 22:59
    It was to shift her relationship
    with God to another level.
  • 22:59 - 23:04
    Let us see what happened when Samuel finally came in 1 Samuel 1:27.
  • 23:04 - 23:10
    “She said, ‘I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him.
  • 23:10 - 23:13
    So now I give him to the Lord.
  • 23:13 - 23:19
    For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.’ And he worshipped the Lord there.”
  • 23:19 - 23:22
    She had no problem giving Samuel up to the Lord.
  • 23:22 - 23:28
    In fact, it was her delight, knowing that what comes from God goes to Him.
  • 23:28 - 23:31
    All she was doing was giving back
  • 23:31 - 23:35
    what had been borrowed to her from God's generous hand.
  • 23:35 - 23:38
    What an example of faith.
  • 23:38 - 23:45
    What an example of responsible
    use of blessing.
  • 23:45 - 23:48
    What are you praying for today?
  • 23:48 - 23:51
    When you receive that answer to prayer,
  • 23:51 - 23:55
    have you thought about how you will glorify God with that?
  • 23:55 - 23:59
    I mean, when you finally have that thing you have been praying for -
  • 23:59 - 24:04
    that good health, that breakthrough,
    that blessing, that marriage, that child -
  • 24:04 - 24:06
    will use those blessings to honour God?
  • 24:06 - 24:11
    Will you testify to God's goodness like Hannah did?
  • 24:11 - 24:18
    Finally, do not misinterpret
    God's silence as rejection.
  • 24:18 - 24:23
    Sometimes God allows us to pass
    through hard times
  • 24:23 - 24:26
    in order to reveal His purpose
    in our lives.
  • 24:26 - 24:32
    You see, when God is executing His plan in our lives, He designs and arranges events
  • 24:32 - 24:37
    that continue to unfold until
    His purpose is revealed.
  • 24:37 - 24:39
    Delay is not ‘denied’.
  • 24:39 - 24:44
    What could be the purpose of the seeming
    delay in your own life today?
  • 24:44 - 24:47
    Perhaps it is to prepare you.
  • 24:47 - 24:50
    Perhaps it is to equip you.
  • 24:50 - 24:55
    Perhaps it is to mature you, to make you that man or woman of faith.
  • 24:55 - 24:58
    You see, if Hannah had had a child sooner,
  • 24:58 - 25:02
    she may not have had
    the great prophet Samuel.
  • 25:02 - 25:07
    She was not going to be the mother
    of any ordinary child,
  • 25:07 - 25:09
    but the mother of a prophet.
  • 25:09 - 25:15
    Therefore, that delay empowered her, equipped her and drew her closer to God.
  • 25:15 - 25:19
    God wants you to come before Him
    with the situation,
  • 25:19 - 25:22
    but He wants to use your situation.
  • 25:22 - 25:28
    He wants to use your challenge, your sickness, whatever your barrenness looks like today,
  • 25:28 - 25:33
    to shift your relationship with God to another level.
  • 25:33 - 25:38
    Hannah's seeming failure in the natural was her set up for success.
  • 25:38 - 25:41
    It was the build up to her breakthrough.
  • 25:41 - 25:48
    It was the positioning that was to propel her towards her future success.
  • 25:48 - 25:55
    Prophet T.B. Joshua said, “When we accept adversity, enduring every pain,
  • 25:55 - 26:03
    then we will learn what we should know; our grief will turn to gain.”
  • 26:03 - 26:07
    So let me leave you with this question now.
  • 26:07 - 26:16
    Are you ready to receive your own Samuel in God's way and in God's time?
  • 26:16 - 26:22
    Well, if you are, don’t base your faith on your immediate improvement after prayer.
  • 26:22 - 26:30
    Value the process, draw on God’s resources and like Hannah, you too will see
  • 26:30 - 26:34
    that everything is beautiful in God's time.
