You may be passing through a difficult time right now because God has marked you for a lifting.

"Then Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, and the people made him head and captain over them...." (Judges 11:11 KJV)

The bible introduced Jephthah to us as a mighty man of valour but noted that he was the son of a harlot. He was a product of his father's mess and as such the mother was not living with the father. According to the Jewish tradition Jephthah could not inherit his father's property, because the Bible says the son of a harlot cannot come into the congregation unto the third generation.

This young man was born but it looked as though he had no future and nobody was ready to speak for him. And so, one day, his half-brothers got up and said to him you shall not inherit our father's property with us because, you are the son of a harlot. When this was happening, the prophetic hand of God was already pointing at Jephthah for a lifting. When God's appointed time finally came, the elders of Gilead brought him back, and made him "head and captain over them". In the same place where he was abused and ridiculed, there he was lifted and celebrated.

This is your moment. You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a peculiar people, a holy nation, set aside to show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

You will not be disappointed. The hand of God will manifest in your life. No matter what the devil may do, you will get there. 

You are going to sing your song, bake your cake, light your candle, dance your dance and no devil can stop you.

Now is your defining moment!

"For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease." (Job 14:7 KJV)

  However, it is always difficult to believe that God is working on your behalf when all things have turned haywire. Everyone can believe when everything is alright but the time comes when there is nothing to believe. A time when it looks as though it will never work and you are about to give up hope, yet you have to keep on believing. That is where the rubber meets the road. I don't know who is reading this right now but I hear the spirit of God say this is your defining moment. The hour has come for the hand of God to be manifested in your life.

It is so easy for people to begin to define you based on where you are. But the truth is that you cannot write off someone who is still sitting under the word of God, no matter how bad his/her case may be. The book of Job tells us that you can cut down a tree and it can even become dried up but as long as the stump perceives the scent of water, it will sprout. This is because God does not work the way we work. I found out that according to God's calculation, God's timing starts at night, not in the day. It is man that starts in the day. God starts in the night. When man has tried everything and failed, God then steps into the situation.

Don't write off yourself. Don't you understand that it can only be God? He can take you from nothing to something because some things about you have already been concluded and perfected in eternity. The devil cannot undo in time what God has perfected in eternity. The devil may be dancing around but he cannot change it because God perfected and secured it. 

Your future is colourful.
