We all have things it we're believing for a dream to come to pass problems to turn around at one time. We knew it was to happen. We stood in fate, but when it's been a long time, we don't see anything improving its did he get discouraged and think that it was meant to be, but just because you ve given up, does it mean that God has given up? God? Doesn't abort dreams, the delays, the detours? The disappointments did

It's too late. The odds are against. To God is saying your time is come he has not forgotten about you. He has seen the lonely nights, he's seen the unfair situations that you're doing the right thing and not getting the credit. The illness is improving. The child is doing better voices whisper. It will never happen, don't believe those lies healing is coming from ocean is coming, freedom is coming, God has already put it on the schedule. The date has already been ordained, so I'm one hundred and two says there is a Tom POR favor. You keep honouring God doing the right thing and you're going to come in to some of your set times times.
God will show out in your lie times that you will see explosive blessings. You were struggling in your finances, you didn't see how you could get ahead and suddenly you promoted. Suddenly your business takes off. Suddenly you get that scholarship. That medical report says that you'll never get well, but suddenly your health turns around. Suddenly you break that addiction. Suddenly, your child gets back on course. What happened? You came in to your set tat. If you could see what God has on your calendar, you wouldn't worry about the client. You lost your lose sleep over that family member. You wouldn't get,
this current over that legal situation. You may have some obstacles that are not changing your praying and believing, but instead of complaining living discoveries all through the day. Father. Thank you that my time is coming. I'm not moved by what I see a move, but what I know that you have already set the time to favour me. You ve already set the time to hear me. You ve already set the time too this around? Get your hopes up? It's not too late. You did miss your chance. You wouldn't be alive if God didn't have something amazing in your future. David was seventeen years old when the prophet Samuel came to his house to choose one of his father sums as the next king of Israel, David had seven older brothers, they were bigger, taller, had more experience, David's father, Jesse didn't bother to bring David in
The shepherds feels he thought David is not king material. He's too small to young, not its talented, as his brothers Samuel looked at the other brothers and set its none of Yes, do you have another son Jesse had David came in when Samuel saw him, he said. That's the next king of Israel, people judge by the outside by Europe parents, your nationality, you, education, but God looks at the heart, don't be discouraged it people right you all promotion doesn't come from people. It comes from God. God sees you have a hard after him. He sees your sincerity, your integrity, your spirit of excellence. What's on the inside is more powerful than what's on the out
sad David was anointed to be the next king, but he didn't go to the palace. He went back to the shepherds fields where he was before and took care of his father. She he was anointed before he was appointed. He knew big things were in him. He knew he was going to leave his mark, but month after month he was duck in the lonely shepherds fields do in what seemed like a menial, job, feeding, sheep cleaning up their ways, shoveling manure, he could have thought God you said
would be the king. You had Samuel annoyed me. Why must still stuck out here? I have so much more in me, but David understood this principle that his time was coming, that what God promise was already on the schedule that the date had already been sent me. Even though David was doing a menial thing taking care of sheep, he can't be in his best. Nobody was watching him, he didn't have a supervisor, he wasn't clock in. He couldn't slacked, all don't just enough to get by, but David win
the extra mile to watch over, though she he fought off wild animals and kept them from harm, made sure they had food and water. He had a spirit of excellence because he proved a god. He would be faithful taking care of sheep. God trusted him to take care of his people and, if you're, not faithful in the wilderness, how can God trust you to be faithful in the promised land like David? Most of the time, you will be annoyed. Did before your appointed you'll have the promise the dream, the calling, but you won't go straight to the throne. You'll go back to the shepherds. How you respond when you're anointed, but not appointed, will determine whether you make it to the palace. You have to be your best right. Where you are, you may have bigger things in you, you know you're going to lead that department. You gonna teach that class you're going to run that business. The promise is
in your heart. You been anointed so to speak, but you're doing something much smaller than what any Will you give it your all, even though you are over qualified for that position will use. Others, even though you have more experienced and then, if you pass the test, being faithful in the small. The God will trust you with much Saul was the king of Israel. He struggled with bouts of depression and he had these tormenting spirits that came against in his staff in that when these attacks came, he needed someone to play music and it would help in feel better so agreed and ask them to find someone. They said we know, a young man named David, the son of Jesse, he's an excellent in playing the heart. The scripture says saw sent a message:
Jesse saying send me your son David, the shepherd here David had been overlooked, felt like he was forgotten. People discounted him, his father didn't believe in him, but now the king was asking for him by name people dont determine your destiny. Someone, may I put you at a disadvantage? You keep doing the right thing and your time is coming. Promotion will come call in your name. Opportunity will come looking for you. The right people will come tracking you down. God knows how to vindicate you. He knows how to cause you to stand. Imagine Jesse, hearing the knock on that door. He answers it and it's the kings right hand. Man standing there dressed in their military, uniform holding their armour Jesse thought what in the world are they doing at my house and my in trouble Have I done something wrong? The main man speaks up and said
King Saul want your son David to come, serve him in the palace. Nobody in David spam they paid attention to him. They didn't give him any credit, but now the king was calling for David, I'm sure Jesse nearly passed out word quickly, spread throughout the neighborhood, the king S David to come work for him. Now David is the talk of the town esteemed honoured, looked up to in one. Home it. He went from the background to the foreground from being discounted to be in it. My new may have had unfair things happen. People left out tried to discredit, to. God saw what happened, he's, keeping the records he has it for good about you may seem like your falling behind. You could never reach your dreams. Now. It's too late, you ve, been stuck at the shepherds, feels for too long. Now, your time,
is coming, keep doing the right thing when the wrong thing is happening. Keep me in good to people that are not being good. Do you you're going to come in to one of these set times what God catapult you a hand. Sometimes God does things gradually little by little, there are moments when God will thrust you twenty years ahead, you're not only make up for lost time, but hillock central rate things David, went overnight from working in the shepherds feels the lowest position to working with the king. The highest position he didn't have to make it happen. Try to manipulate things top people into helping him. The king sent for him, like with David you're, going to see opera tuna d that comes lookin for you. That puts you years down the road you gonna think
How did I get here? I didn't have the qualifications. I wasn't next in line this should have taken me my whole life, but suddenly, God he's going to thrust you a hand, get ready for some set times of accelerate. Hebrew says. Don't cast away your confidence, for it will be richly rewarded. It's easy to hear this and they saw this is never going to happen. For me, I've had a lot of bad breaks. I have big obstacles in my path
behind, where I should be, that kind of thinking is going to limit your life. That's casting away your confidence! God is saying your time is coming, I'm about to do something unusual, something uncommon! I'm going to thrust you ahead, I'm going to free you from that addiction. You struggled with for years, I'm going to vindicate you and pay you back for the wrongs, I'm going to take you from insignificant, mediocre to influential and powerful that you have to get in.
We met with God if you'll start thanking him that your time is coming talkin like it's going to happen, believe, and that is on the way. That's what it means to not cast away your competence. When you do this, God promises, it will be richly reward and look at how good God is not just rewarded. That would be fine, but God will exceed your expectations. He'll make things happen that you didn't see coming now, don't get talked out of your dreams. You may feel, like David, you're stuck out in the shepherds fields. Nobody pays attention to your gives your you're in prime position to be catapulted when new level. People may not pay attention, but God sees you he's the one that matters he controls the universe
he's already scheduled your set times a favor set terms of healing set terms of acceleration. There are moments in your future that are going to cause you to stand down moments. It will catapult you to a new level, which were Faber will come looking for you there's a young man that attends here. He had a dream to become a physician. He graduated from college with honors he applied to forty medical schools, but only three contacted him back. He interviewed with them. Unfortunately, he was too down. He was so disappointed. This was always what he wanted to do. He had put all of his time and energy and focus into getting into medical school, but now that door had Austin. He didn't understand. He had worked so hard, but instead of
the sour he kept, believing that his time was coming. He knew God didn't bring him this far to leave him when things happened, that art fair, you don't understand, you have to trust that God is still in control and that he knows what's best for you. His ways are not our ways; he doesn't always take us down the path that we thought now. Be times the doors closed that don't make sense. People that should be forests are not around we're doing the right thing, but the wrong thing keeps happening. None of this is a surprise to God he's already land the brakes. You need the open doors, the right people, the healing the baby. It's already on yours, schedule. This young man attended a seminar for students wanting to get into medical school one option they mention was working for the armed services when he heard that somethin ignited on the inside he
new, that's what he wanted to do. He met a gentleman there that took an interest in hand and when out of his way to put in a good word for here recently this young man received the news that he was accepted into the armed forces, medical he would not only receive a full scholarship, not have any cause for his medical education, but that he would be paid a very substantial salary. While he attended college what happened he came in to one of his set times if God had not close those other doors. If a school We have accepted him earlier. He would have never seen this opportunity. That was more than he could imagine here. We're dreamed he would come out of medical school with no damn being paid the whole time. Someone would have paid me. I want to state in college if you won't cast away your but aunt, God will richly reward you. You may have gone through some disappointments.
Things didn't turn out the way. You hope you don't know what, God is up to The reason he closed. Those other doors is because he has something better, don't be discouraged about what didn't work out stay invade. Your time is coming the Right opportunity is on the way it's going to be better than you thought that person that walked out of your life. It wasn't fair, it was painful, but it didn't stop your destiny daily. Only to make room for someone better. God has beauty for those ashes. You haven't seen your best days. Keep moving forward when you don't understand. Keep me in your best when it's not fair. This is what Joseph did. How could he have a good attitude year after year after being betrayed by his family sold into slavery, put in prison for something that he didn't do deep down? He knew his time was coming. He knew
what God spoke to him ass, a teenager. The dream that was put in his heart would come to pass. He did know how, when are where all he knew was. God is faithful and that the set time was already on the calendar. He didn't cast away his competence here. Please The opportunities to heed had a lot of bad breaks, but when you understand that God is ordering your steps that nothing can happen to you without his permission, then you won't fall apart when a pandemic, kids, you won't live bitter. When somebody does you wrong, you won't give up on your dream. When life throws you occur, you know It's all a part of God's plan that set back is only setting. You ought to go further. God had this solution before you had the problem he's already set the time to turn it around set the time to open
the right door set the time to bring you out promoted, vindicated healthy and home. One day the Pharoah, the leader of the country, had a dream that he didn't understand what it meant the scripture says: Pharaoh sit for Joseph he was hastily brought from the dungeon interfere rose, presents just like with David King Saul said sin me David to the palace. The Faro said: sin me that prisoner send me that slave named Joseph Both times the promotion came looking for, then you don't have to look for the blessing. The blessing is going to come looking for you, Joseph was brought to the palace hastily. He was an expense. Thing it, it was an ordinary day nothing special
suddenly he was in the palace. He didn't see it coming, wasn't any sign of it. He woke up a slave in prison. He went to bed at night. The prime minister, God has some of these. Suddenly in your future. You don't see anything. Improving everything looks the same and you come into a set time. It's going to happen hastily in a hurry quickly. Things turn around quickly. The door opened quickly. Your help improve. It may be difficult now, but you don't know any moment you could get a car like Joseph did. Send me Julie. Sin me William, since May Maria, that's how you stay in thing. You have to keep this hope in your heart. When that God is already lined up these set times. For you, if you only look at you,
situated in the natural you'll get discouraged because God puts dreamed and our hearts that we can accomplish on our own. We don't have the resources, the connections, the experience this is so we'll have to depend on him. We face challenges that we can overcome by ourselves a sickness and addiction people better, more powerful it looks like we're stuck but deep down. You have to know the forces that are, for you are greater than the forces that are against you. You may feel outnumber at a disadvantage. The sickness seems bigger
the addiction stronger, keep reminding yourself. Your time is coming. One touch of God's favour, one set time and things will suddenly change. Nothing can stand against our God. No sickness is too great, no addiction to strong no enemy to powerful. I talked to a gentleman that was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. The doctors only gave him eight ten months to live. He heard me tell how my mother quoted healing scriptures when she was sick with cancer, how she defied the odds instead of accepting it and think it his life was over. He started quoting the scriptures and thanking God that he was restoring health back into him. The psalmist said winds.
This overtakes, the righteous light will come bursting in when you in a tough time, seems like there's no way out. The odds are against too easily live worried fall apart, but you have to remind yourself God, is already set the time for life to come bursting in he's already set the time for healing set the time for breakthroughs. Bursting means it's going to happen. Suddenly you didn't see it coming. You can't explain it's out of the ordinary. When I spoke with this young man, he said that yesterday, with the end of the eighteen months, that's how much time he was given to live. He went back to the hospital for a check up. The doctor said. We can explain this, we don't know how it happened, but we can't find any cancer in your brain. You are perfectly well,
You come in to your set time. God will make things happen that you couldn't make happen. He can do what medicine can Do he's not limited by what limits us we're natural? He supernatural you may be in darkness, but instead are complaining about the darkness being depressed by the darkness trial. If an approach father, thank you that your life is about to come bursting. Thank you that my set time, por favor, set tamper healing set time for liberals is on the way, don't cast away your competence. God is bigger than what you are facing. You may not see how it can work out. Logically, there's no way the Good NEWS is you don't have to figure it out? All you have to do is believe when you believe all things are possible. When you go through the day say and father
I don't see a way, but I know you have a way it doesn't look possible to me, but I know you can do the impossible like this man you're see these times. We're God will show out in your line. It may not have happened yet, but I believe you are closer than you think you are close to your breakthrough. You are close to things turn it around. You are close to that. How getting back on course, you wouldn't be hearing this. If you weren't about to see one of your set times Burst Samuel chapter one. There was a young lady named Hannah. She was baron. Not able to have children. Her husband was married to another woman as well named Panada Jihad, baby after baby didn't seem fair, handicap, praying and believing, but the scripture says the
Lord had shut her. Will the Good NEWS is the same God that shucks wombs can open wounds just as God shut doors he can open doors year after year. Went back with no sign of a baby. Hannah was, very discouraged. She went to. The temple fell on her knees and ask God to give her a child. The prophet Isla saw how distraught she was and ask what was wrong. She explained how she couldn't have children. She was asking God to open her whew Isla said cheer up. The God of Israel has granted your request. You're going to have a baby Isla sit in effect, you're about to come in to want to your set times you're about to see God do something that you ve never seen. Here's the key Hannah believed what he said. She went back home, a different person. She had a smile on her face a spring in her step. She didn't have the baby, yet all she had was the
farmers that her time was coming a year later, she went back to the temple with her baby boy that she named Samuel, sometimes lack with Hannah and the other why it seemed like everybody is being blast except you, everybody's, getting married except you, everybody c and promotion except you. It's like the Faber has been shut all but don't be discouraged by what hasn't happened. Yet you are is coming. Your baby is coming. You're healing is coming you joy is coming. God is about to open up your womb you're about to see things you been believe in for a long time. Promises you thought would never happen dream that you ve let go. You are close to your set time, a favor. Now I've done what Isla de it have announced. What God said you have to do lack Hannah and say: yes, God. This is for me
Let this sea take root in your spirit, don't let it just be another, encouraging message: leaden ignite, your fate let it come alive on the inside. You are on the verge of seeing God do something. Amazing is not far off. It's not weigh up in the distant. You are closed to your breakthrough. You are in the final stretch. Now don't cast away your competence. This is not the time to get discourage. This is not the time to talk defeat. This is a time to stir up your fate. Turn up your praise. Talk like it in ran all through the day. Father. Given that my time is coming. Thank you that you're the way maker, the promise keeper the miracle worker
If you do this, God said you will be richly reward. It I believe, and declare lie, is about to come bursting. God is about to surprise you he's going to do something that you ve never seen something that was thrust due to a new level. Negative situations are about to suddenly turn around like with Joseph and David Promotion is going to come.
