    When I was studying a few years ago, I had one final paper to submit. It was the summation of all we had learnt. We had to apply the teachings to a real problem and offer a solution based on theory.

    The paper was fifteen thousand words long and, in true dissertation style, with all the referencing (that took hours to type). The whole nine yards, as they say.

    I had recently been promoted to a position that took me from one end of the country to the next. I had really struggled through part of school. And this was a lot to do whilst working. I never anticipated the promotion and, when it came, I was in shock.

    The promotion was really ill timed

    Having to spend so much time traveling, and dealing with one of the largest offices, was really going to have a negative impact on my studies. Everyone was assigned Supervisors to oversee our progress.

    I met with my Supervisor and explained the situation. At this time, I was really spent. I had no energy or time and felt the walls closing in on me. I made up my mind to put off this paper until the following semester. It was clear that I wouldn’t be graduating with my class mates.

    I think you can do it

    My Supervisor had examined what I was able to draft at that point. She then looked me straight in the eye and simply said “I think you can do it, you know.”

    My eyes welled up, and somehow I felt encouraged by that one positive word. I knew God was speaking through her and I said that I would try. With God’s grace, I completed that paper in three weeks.

    I will never forget how God stood by my side, for my belief in these few words He used someone to say to me.

    They chose to believe and trust in God’s Word

    In the Bible, God spoke to many great men a specific word, on a purpose they had to fulfill. He spoke to Joshua after Moses died (Joshua 1). In Genesis 12, He gave Abraham a word. When Jacob ran away from home, God gave him a dream and a visitation (Genesis 28 & 32) and in Exodus 3, He spoke to Moses about freeing a nation (His own people).

    All these men were great men, and they did great and mighty acts for God and God’s people, because they chose to believe and trust in the word God had spoken over their lives.

    Have courage in God, as His word spoken over your life will sustain you. I know it’s difficult at times, but God’s word is as sure as the sun comes up and sets each day. His Word says in Isaiah 55: 10-11:

    For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,

    So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth. It will not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose. And, it will prosper in the things for which I sent it.

    May God’s grace and unmerited favor flood your heart, and may His word strengthen and sustain you, Amen.
