The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, the house of Israel is saying, ‘The vision he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies about the distant future.’ “Therefore say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: None of my words will be delayed any longer; whatever I say will be fulfilled, declares the Sovereign LORD.'” (Ezek 12:26-28 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, when it seems that every promise I read about or hear from You is for a future time, help me remember that I am today in what was yesterday’s future. There will come a day when each promise will be for the “today” I am in at the time. Give me courage, patience, and strength to wait and not give up hope, regardless of how long. I will wait on You, trusting that the “today” of Your promises will surely come and will not fail. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
