Before you quit and give up in discouragement, consider the long and difficult process by which a butterfly emerges from its cocoon.

If you try to rush God’s purpose and process in your life, you’ll produce something deformed, something that can’t get off the ground and fly.

Perhaps you’re thinking, ‘I can’t wait for this to be over.’ That’s…

Are you waiting for your vision to start coming to pass, or to find a solution to a problem you’re facing, or for the first signs of fulfilment to a promise God has made you? You’re not the first person to struggle with the idea of waiting, and you won’t be the last.

‘The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us…’ John 1:13

How hell must have celebrated the day Jesus was crucified! ‘The Word became flesh and dwelt among us…the only begotten of the Father…’ (v. 14 NKJV). Yet He had just died on a cross. But satan’s big party ended abruptly!

One author writes: ‘In the most ironic twist of all history, what satan meant for evil, God meant for good.…
