Song of the Week

Song: The More I Seek You – Hannah McClure

“3 March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days.”

– Joshua 6:3 NIV

6 Days…

It looks six whole days of tiring marching before the seventh day.

And even then, the miracle didn’t happen at midnight on the seventh day. There was one more round of grinding to be done. 

So what’s the lesson here? 

The lesson is…

The promise of victory seems long, and in reality, it’s even longer. 

Amazing, isn’t it!

I’m just kidding. Ignore my sarcasm. 

But ignore all you want, I’m sure you’ve felt this exact way before.

You might be wondering, “why is your promise taking so long to fulfill?”

“I mean, if God said it, God would do it, right?”

Yes, that’s true, but God often makes you work for His promises.

And actually, it’s a much sweeter deal than what many others face. Here is the underlying truth that sets you apart from the world:


Many people don’t have promises at all. 

The truth, even in the Bible, is that everyone needs to work hard for success: 

4 A sluggard’s appetite is never filled,
    but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.”

– Psalms 13:4 NIV

Everyone needs to do it. Believers and non-believers.

However, with God’s promise, we have something special…

You have a direction! 

We have a clear, particular direction to work for. 

Yet, that doesn’t guarantee guarantees. There are no signs to tell you that you’re on the right track. 
Whatever you think might happen probably won’t. And whatever you think can’t possibly happen just might. 

Yet, you should be grateful, because, with your promise, you believe in God. And when you believer in God…

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.”

– Romans 8:28 NIV

Prophetic Word

You might be facing challenges or uncertainty. Things don’t seem to reflect God’s promise in your life. Yet, there’s this nagging feeling of hope in your innermost being. 

That’s your faith thrashing. 

It’s tell you to not give up!

Just because things don’t seem the way you think they should, doesn’t mean they aren’t going to turn out the way God intends. 

Do you see the fallacy here? 

It’s not up to us to think about how they should look like. Here’s the reason why: 

It’s God who directs our steps, not us. 

23 The Lord makes firm the steps
    of the one who delights in him;”

– Psalms 37:23 NIV

Call to Action

Do this mindfulness activity: 

Ever heard of the cliche “Let go and let God”? Well, let’s change it up a little. 

Say this to yourself whenever your faith is in a pickle: Let God, and let’s get down to work.

Here’s a valuable nugget for you if you made this far: If you just show up every day and put in a little bit of your heart into what you’re doing, God will bless it. 

God bless you! Let’s push through the mundane towards your miracles!
