Delayed Does NOT Mean Denied!

On Feb 29th, 2012, I shared a blog about my word for the year. That has NOT changed! I still believe and anticipate a now manifestation of EVERY thing that God has purposed for me.
The Bible tells me that God has plans for me and He is not confused or unsure about those plans (Jer 29:11). I am confident and encouraged because God assures me in His Word that before my conception and formation in my mother's womb I was known and called by Him. God further let's me know that there is no good thing He will withhold from me if I walk uprightly, for EVERY good and perfect gift comes from Him.
Luke 1 vs 45 states, "Blessed is she who believed, for there WILL be a FULFILLMENT of those things which were told her from the Lord."
The background of this scripture is that both Mary and Elizabeth believed God, and they testified of their faith in Him to do what He had promised, and because they believed God the things that He had purposed for them came to pass, IMMEDIATELY!!
I am happy, chosen and highly favored (blessed) because I believe, and my faith and confidence in God is the atmosphere that will cause a PERFORMANCE or FULFILLMENT of EVERYTHING that God has said, thought and purposed concerning me! Why, because I serve that same God that Mary and Elizabeth served. And this All Knowing, Ever Present, Faithful, Victorious, Loving, All Powerful God, has said some things (in His Word or by His servants) concerning me and you.
My encouragement to you is to BELIEVE it - no matter how it looks, or sounds or feels, no matter how late or impossible it seems - trust in God and be established for there "WILL (no doubt or question about it) be a FULFILLMENT (completion/manifestation) of those things which were told YOU from the LORD!
Remember: Elizabeth was much older than Mary, but she (Elizabeth) had to be barren until it was time for Jesus to be conceived, so Elizabeth's DELAY in becoming pregnant was not a DENIAL, but it was God preparing her (and Mary) for a greater gift and purpose! The vision may tarry but, it WILL come to pass!
