12 Weeks of Prayer Week 11 Day 1


By Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro

"And the Lord said, 'Arise, anoint him, for this is he.'

Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him

in the midst of his brothers.

And the Spirit of the Lord rushed upon

David from that day forward."

1 Samuel 16:12-13

The biggest mistake that I see in this hour is that we want to live in microwave time. If it doesn’t happen this very instant, then we heard wrong from God. Please read your Bible and study it. God gave a word, and most of the time people had to wait for its manifestation. Understand the prophetic please.

Personally, I am saddened by all the negative attitudes towards God’s beautiful promises. I’m sorry that sometimes I share what God tells me He would do with some people. I speak often about aborting our destinies because I see people give up when something God has told them doesn’t happen according to their timetable, or how they envisioned it to be. Please understand God’s ways are not our ways nor are His thoughts our thoughts. His thoughts are higher than ours.

In the next few devotionals, I will address this issue from a different perspective. Let’s address timing first. God said, “A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night,” (Psalm 90:4). That’s Old Testament. “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day,” (2 Peter 3:8). That’s New Testament. This was so important that God conveys it twice to be sure that we got it. Yet, we still act like we don’t understand it.
