Just a reminder – He took care of it before and He will do it again. He wants you to trust Him more. He is not a man that would lie. Staying in doubt is stealing your joy. This place of challenge is strength to believe God. When it is easy it does not empower. God is calling you to enter the secret place to wait. God’s promise to you is so.
Numbers Ch 23 v 19 “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
Expectations can be good or bad, reasonable or unreasonable and sometimes unrealistic. One may have the expectation of individuals without them being aware only to lead to frustration and anxiety-provoking. Proverbs 13:12a says “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life”
What are your expectations today is it reasonable or is it faulty. Faulty expectations can lead to trouble in a relationship. When we put our trust in the Lord it gives us hope, this is His promise. Proverbs 23:18 “There is surely a future hope for you and your hope will not be cut off” In God, we can have great expectations.
Your history, all your mishaps all you would have should have was preparation for your now season. You cannot change the past, your decision today will frame your operation in your now season. You have been prepared. Walk in it. Shalom
Do you need an answer to the word you received, Do you need direction. Do you need to know how to, when to, where to. Look no further on the outside. Connect with Christ within or invite Him in. Everything is in Him. (Colossian 2 v 9) Colossians 2:9, KJV: “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” He is the answer.
Allow the love of God shine in this season. The reason is not the tangible gifts, The greatest gift that we receive the gift that came through love. The beginning of life is that Christ was conceived through the Holy Spirit. Let love be conceived in your hearts in this season. Forgive, let go of the hurtful past so the soil in your heart will allow Love to grow.
John 3 v 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The greatest gift we can give in this season is to share the Love of God. Shalom
Closed doors were not for you. Some doors are not God’s will for you to enter them and God closes it to protect you. The emotional experience you endured outside that door was to make you aware of your strength and your purpose and preparation to enter the door He opens. God knows everything and He knows if you’re on the wrong path Revelation 3 v 8 “I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”Be empowered and know that you are being prepared to enter the right door in 2020. You have gained more insight into who you are and have endured hardship. This has brought you into a wealthy state. A place of maturity” Happy New Year!!!
To God be all the glory. This is the time to rejoice in the Lord. Give Thanks to Him for the great things He has done. The new Season has sprung forth and the paradigm must align with this season. Staying connected to God will keep us on track with what He is doing. He is having us visit the blueprint again to stay on course. This year is action time to do what is in our heart to do as long as we follow instructions. Forgive those who trespass against you and move forward. Give Thanks Have a blessed and prosperous year. Shalom Psalm 33 v 1-4 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. 2Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psalteryandan instrument of ten strings.3Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. 4For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. 5He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
Many times when hope is not fulfilled it leads to fear and anxiety. Some have waited for a long time to receive an answer to prayer. During the waiting period, inner work is done. There is an appointed time when the wait is over. Put your hope in the Lord. It is a deeper and closer walk with Him that will cause you to find more wisdom that will guide you. Shift your focus to God not the problem.
25 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
26 it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.
He is your deliverer. He will revive and strengthen you. Hope in the Lord
” Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”
What is the reasoning in your why. Is it disappointment, is it pain, or is it that you feel injustice was done. There are seasons when an individual may experience sadness, melancholy, dejection and an emotional low. Sometimes this overwhelming feeling may just creep up. It can bring on confusion due to fear that brings the question of WHY. It is ok to ask yourself why, as it opens the door to look within to find the cause of this sad emotion and allow the light to shine on the darkness that tried to overshadow you. WHY is what you ask yourself even though you were not clear that the answer could come from you. David asked himself why. He spoke to his soul which is his mind, emotion and will. He questioned himself which brought him to a place where his focus should be. The extent of his despair had him in a place where he could not see the light. He did not have peace and felt all hope was lost forever.
Today you might have a WHY, many reasons may come to you but put your hope in God, trust him and wait patiently. Do not isolate yourself, do not stay angry at yourself. Forgive yourself and forgive others. Get in the presence of God and He will restore you. Shalom
