It's a known fact that pressure busts pipes, causes disaster and destruction. However pressure also shapes coals into priceless treasures ( diamonds). I guess my point is however we choose to approach our hard times will determine the outcome of them. Everyone has the choice to decide whether they will allow their circumstances to make them bitter or better.
As we wait upon the Lord- surely hope deferred makes the heart sick but when the answer comes, and this RV/Exchange will surely come - it will be like a tree of life....until it comes do this: "Don't focus on what you are waiting for. Focus on the blessing right where you're at." (BY)
The Lord has been speaking to me lately about “hope deferred” and “hope displaced”. As Proverbs points out, “hope deferred makes the heart sick”. Hope displaced seems to make us remain on a never ending roller coaster ride from hopeful to hopelessness. It can even progress into anger at God and others. According to Strong’s Bible Dictionary, deferred means to “delay” or “draw out”.
That implies that the thing hoped for is probable and will eventually come to pass. God’s promises are true, but His timetable is rarely ours. Hebrews 11:1 reads, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
We can be sure of what we hope for even when it remains unseen if God, Himself, promises it to us.

Hope is displaced when we assume that God will do something for us merely because He has done it for others. We can be full of hope and excitement one minute when it looks like our desires will be fulfilled, and emotionally crashed on the floor the next as we realize that little is changed from the intel we heard earlier, even from seemingly excellent sources...
In the middle of all of this, one thing is true… God will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).
Look at some of God's promises He spoke to Dave Addison in His word to us this morning: I (Wisdom) walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice,
bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love Me and making their treasuries full. Proverbs 8:20–21
It was God's wisdom that brought great wealth to Solomon (1 Kings 10:23–25). Wisdom and strategic plans from God will release wealth into the Kingdom of God.
For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring, and My blessing on your descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams. Isaiah 44:3–4 God spoke to me that for people who have suffered losses and major setbacks over the past four years, "Watch, as the next four years will bring the turnaround of your life." Repayment and promotions are being released.
I was shown a massive wave of the Holy Spirit coming! Over the next four years we will indeed see an amazing move of God. God is raising up and anointing the ones who have been clothed in love, compassion and humility and they will move in great power. This is a time when divine alliances will form on a greater level in regard to marriages, businesses, and ministries. God spoke to me that this month starts realignments that will bring new assignments. It is important to listen to God and realign as He directs you. God has no limits and we often limit Him with our own beliefs of what is possible.
Everything is possible for one who believes. Mark 9:23 (Dave Addison)
