Its A Necessary Part Of The Process

process

We can get impatient when it comes to Gods will for our lives. We want everything to work out on our timetable. The truth is, a great deal of time usually elapses between when God calls us and when we’ve fulfilled His will for our lives.

And until we accept that, we’re not ready to go anywhere.

We need to understand that the journey is an important part of the process. It matters to God what you become on the way to where you are going. And following Him in obedience through many unknown, trails, and difficulties is an integral and indispensable part of the preparation.

God uses the journey to teach you faith, refine your character, and equip you for greater challenges that lie ahead. In fact, if you’re in the process of seeking Gods will right now, you’re already fulfilling part of it in your life.

God said, ‘I will instruct you and teach you in the ways you should go.’

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that because you don’t know all you’d like to, you’re not making progress.

Something is happening right now. Your faith is being stretched; your patience is being developed. Your doubts are being confronted and conquered, and your relationship with God is growing deeper. He always prepares us in advance for what He has planned for us.

Yes, the struggle is uncomfortable — but its a necessary part of the process.

 

Thank God for the way that He uses everything to transform you and deepen your relationship with Him.

Are You Having A Hard Time Waiting? Wait patiently for it will surely take place

waiting

Has God promised you something and humanly speaking you see no way it can come to pass?

Are you having A hard time waiting? Read this scripture, “if it seems slow wait patiently for it will surely take place.”

God does things on schedule, and your appointment is still on his calendar. Be assured that nothing the enemy does can pre-empt the plan for God for your life.

When he gives you a promise, it’s like a seed. First, you must fall into the fertile soil of faith and be given time to grow.

Then you must be watered regularly through prayer and the word of God.

It won’t come to pass because you push and try to manipulate; “it’s…. not by might nor by power but by my spirit, saith the Lord” (Zachariah 4:6 KJV).

If God has promised you something, stand on his word and remind yourself, “my life can’t end before this comes to pass.”

The story of Joseph‘s life could be summed up in this scripture; “until the time that this word came to pass, the word of the Lord tested him” (Psalm 105:19 NKJV)

Why test something? To reveal its strength; to see if it holds up or falls apart under pressure.

What has God promised you? Do you believe him? How strong is your faith? If it’s weak, God will put you back into the school of faith so you can learn the lessons, pass the tests, and graduate.

‘Without faith, it is impossible to please God for he who comes to God must believe that he is a rewarder’ (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV)

The word for you today is keep believing God, and it will happen.

Wait patiently, for it will surely take place
Habakkuk 2:3

Enjoy the rest of your week.

When Things Don’t Work Out As You Plan

sometimesThe world isn’t going to devote itself to making us happy, and only when we accept that can we begin can move forward. Much of the time life doesn’t work out the way we plan.

Paul wrote, “Whenever a journey to Spain, I shall come to you.” But he never got to Spain; instead, he landed in prison. But it was from there he wrote the epistles. So, your disappointment may turn out to be God’s appointment!

The Bible says, ”In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps” (Proverbs 16:9 NIV 1984 Edition).

Aren’t you glad God is in control of your life? Let the philosophers argue over why life works as it does; just you focus on how to live it!

If you live to be a hundred, what good is it if resentment and regret keep you from enjoying it? And what good is more time, if you’re just wasting the time you’ve got?

Do you know how an oyster makes a pearl? When a grain of sand gets into it shell and irritates it, the oyster wraps the sand in layers of beauty until a pearl is formed.

An unknown poet wrote, “This tale has a moral, for isn’t it grand, what an oyster can do with a morsel of sand? What couldn’t I do if I’d only begin, with all of the things that get under my skin?”

God is at work in what you’re going through today — for your good and His glory. All you need to do is trust him.

Enjoy your week.
