"Then the word of the LORD came to him: "This man will not be your heir, but a son coming from your own body will be your heir." He took him outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars—if indeed you can count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be." (Genesis 15:4-5)
We all make mistakes but "we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)
Don’t want something so bad that you move outside of God’s will. Beware! Satan will send you an Ishmael! Be patient & wait for the Isaac that God promised you!
It will be so much greater than anything that you can go and get on your own. The next time you receive what you think is a blessing, take it to God and ask "Lord, who sent this?" I can tell you from my own experiences that He will show you and it will happen fast! When /if you get the answer that the "blessing" is not from Him, RUN RUN RUN or you will delay the manifestation of His promise. God can't bring you an Isaac when you have an Ishmael in its place!
