Bible Text: Gen 32:25-28 |

Is Jesus really coming again? (P4).
A Christian Lady-Usher had decided to date an unbeliever. Her reason was that, she was growing old without husband. Her unbeliever-boyfriend had always planned activity to coincide with her church events. The Pastor got to know about the relationship. He advised the lady to bring the man tochurch but he declined. The lady gradually began to backslide from thechurch with series of excuses. One day, there was a big crusade in the city. The crusade coincided with a very well-advertised nightclub show. Four of the lady’s friends including two church members phoned her to attend the crusade but she refused. She disclosed to the closest one that the boy-friend threatened to abandon her if she refused to accompany him to the club. The lady agreed to accompany the boyfriend. On the way to the club, their car involved in a fatal accident and both of them died instantly. At her funeral, the Pastor received a text message on her phone from a friend Pastor who lives in abroad. It read, “Charley, I hope you remember your Lady-Usher who served me all the time that I was at yourchurch to preach! Could you please see her parents and ask for her hands for my marriage?” The Pastor could not control his tears after reading the message! Beloved! with God, delay is not denial. Be patient for God’s promise. Your day of blessings will soon come. Get this, “Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: “For yet a little while, and He who is coming will come and will not tarry.” Heb. 10:35-37.
MEDITATION: The promise is an appointed time!Gen.18:14. 2Pet. 3:1-13.
DECLARATION: Dear LORD, help me (name) to overcome every situation against my life in Jesus Christ name!!!
PRAYER: As you declared, may the LORD bring your future blessings to now like He did for Jacob in Jesus Christ name
