3. It also means there is no way , your enemies will get the last laugh.Isa 48:11(Amp)" For My own sake, for My own sake, I do it [I refrain and do not utterly destroy you]; for why should I permit My name to be polluted and profaned [which it would be if the Lord completely destroyed His chosen people]? And I will not give My glory to another [by permitting the worshipers of idols to triumph over you]." .

6. God is the one speaking in this scripture . Question ? Can God speak and it will not come to pass ? so brace up . you are next in line for a miracle in the name of Jesus , Amen. Num 23:19(NIV)"God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfil?"
7. Look at the word "when" again , meaning , He has already pre-programmed your testimony to manifest at the appointed time .Isa 60:22(NLT)"The smallest family will become a thousand people, and the tiniest group will become a mighty nation. At the right time, I, the LORD, will make it happen."
