“And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.” Mark 8:12. Have you ever heard someone say, “If I could just see a miracle, then I would believe”?

There comes a point in the season, I promise, where suddenly you know. You know. It’s time. And you may still not see what’s happening, but you know that it is.

The scenarios in this list have caused many people to give up and turn away from God. But, Paul went on record to let the church in Rome know that he had his mind made up. Nothing is able to separate him from God’s Love! Is your mind made up?
Prayer: Lord, I’ve got my mind made up to live for You regardless. Though I walk through lonely valleys, You are with me. I’m not throwing in the towel. I’ll live for You come what may. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
