How long are you willing to wait for a miracle in your life? A week? A month? A year? In our time and age, waiting for a year is already a challenge.
Luzviminda Galope, who goes to our worship services at Fort Bonifacio, waited for more than ten years! Was her miracle worth the wait? Let’s find out as she tells her story.
I have been joining the annual fast for more than a decade. During this time of the year, I never fail to include the restoration of relationships between me and my siblings as a faith goal. Our relationships have been broken for many years and it has been a burden for me, but I continued to hope in God. I believe that the God we serve is a God of restoration, so I always asked him for a miracle every time we pray and fast at the beginning of the year. It has been a long time of waiting, but the Lord proved Himself faithful.
After more than a decade of prayer and fasting, I received the sweetest gift last June 22! The Lord made a way to restore my relationship with my brother and sister. We finally had a meaningful conversation which led to forgiveness and understanding. Many years have passed since we last talked to each other, but on that day, we had the opportunity to resolve our misunderstandings and start a new page in our relationships with one another.
I praise the Lord for sustaining my faith in Him and demonstrating His power to reconcile what seems to be irreconcilable. God is faithful. If you delight in Him, He will truly give the desires of your heart.
Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! (Psalm 27:14, ESV)
Luzviminda’s story assures us that putting our faith in God is always a good decision. Sometimes, it takes a while to see hope come to pass, but we can be confident because our God is faithful.
Do you have faith goals in your life that seem to go unnoticed for years? As we have our annual time of prayer and fasting from January 8 to 12 in 2018, we pray that you will persistently believe that God is able to fulfill His will in your life.
