Isaiah 7:14 …the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’).


It took a while, but this prophecy finally came to pass when Jesus was born ! 


Do you ever feel like the promises of God are not coming to pass for you? We all feel that way at times. We read the Scriptures and see God’s promises, but we sometimes struggle to see them fulfilled! Don’t lose hope.


In the words of the great theologians Journey: Don’t Stop Believing!


Isaiah prophesied the birth of the Messiah in 700 B.C.! The people waited a long time before Jesus finally showed up, but eventually, HE DID! At just the right time, the prophecy was fulfilled and Jesus came to earth to rescue us.


I don’t know what you are believing for, but don’t get discouraged, and don’t lose your hope. Jesus will come through for you at just the right time. It may look like it is taking a while, but God has not forgotten you. Like Jesus showed up at the right time to redeem us, He will show up in your life at just the right time to save you as well! Keep the faith. Keep on believing!


Write down one thing you are believing for today, and then tell God you believe He will come through for you and you will not stop believing.
