Isaiah 41:10, NIV “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Deuteronomy 28:1, NKJV “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.”
Proverbs 28:13, NKJV “He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.”
Jeremiah 14:22, NKJV “Are there any among the idols of the nations that can cause rain? Or can the heavens give showers? Are You not He, O Lord our God? Therefore, we will wait for You, Since You have made all these.”
When you are right with God, it will be easier to hear from God. Heed the voice of God. Obey Him even when it doesn’t make sense. Confess and forsake any known sin so that you may prosper. Freedom and deliverance will only come with repentance and restitution. Be willing to wait on God’s timing.
