In creating this title I am not discounting the pain of the issues that we face. I know it is real. Divorce, death, illness and family issues and seemingly unanswered prayers are all at times very painful. I have learnt over the years it is what God has said that really matters and I chosen to line up with what He has declared in my life. Abraham received a promise “You will have a son” but as time goes by and it seems to be impossible he tries to help God out and we get Ishmael! Abraham thought that as each day went by he was further from the promise of a son becoming a reality yet from God’s perspective each day brought him nearer to the word coming to pass. Today why not choose to stand on God’s side of the fence and declare what He has promised is the truth.
