After we got our first venue, we could only afford to pay for six months. We needed to renovate the property so it would be conducive for use. We had gotten quotations from artisans, and we were trusting the Lord for resources.

That same day, my brother came into town from Ibadan. The interesting thing is that we met on the road. He handed over an envelope to me. He said, “Grandpa said I should give you this envelope”. It was the amount we needed for the renovation and a little more. The Lord showed up at the right time!

I have seen the Lord do it again and again. He will always show up at the right time. Do not fear, the Lord will show up for you.

First, make sure you are on God’s ordained path. God is not committed to what He did not commission. For instance, it was God who led the Israelites by the way of the Red Sea.

So, God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Sea. And the children of Israel went up in orderly ranks out of the land of Egypt.

Exodus 13:18 NKJV

Second, if you are on a God-ordained path and there is a challenge, cry out to the Lord.

And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them. So, they were very afraid, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord.

Exodus 14:10 NKJV

Third, keep taking steps of faith. There is at least one next step you can take. What did the Lord tell the nation of Israel? Go forward.

And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.

Exodus 14:15 NKJV

Even the Psalms made us know that “Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me”. It means that you keep moving. All you need will meet you on your journey of faith.

Stop waiting for perfect conditions. If the woman with the issue of blood waited for a time that she would see Jesus privately, she may have to wait for a long time. She may never have received her healing. She did not wait for Peter to help her book an appointment. She stepped out in faith and kept telling herself, “If I can only touch the hem of His garment, I shall be made whole”. Her healing met her in her faith steps.

Stay on a God-ordained course.

Cry out to the Lord.

Keep taking steps of faith.

You will enjoy timely help.
