Have you ever had one of those “but, God” conversations. The kind where you try and discuss, debate and plead with Him to see your side of things? “But God, I don’t understand.” “But God, its uncomfortable.” “ But God, this isn’t what I thought it would be?” If you have ever had similar conversations, your not alone. Its part of the growing process.
One thing for sure I have learned in my walk, it has happened nearly every time without fail, just when I get comfortable God moves me. I can count on it. So when you wonder why God is constantly allowing change to come into your life, you can bet He has something even better in store for you. He wants more from you and for you.
Now we all know that we can choose to stay in our comfort zones, people do it years, even lifetimes, but you can always tell who those people are, they are at the same spiritual level they were years ago. I don’t know about you, but I say “yes” to change, even when its uncomfortable and even when I don’t understand why. I don’t want to go to just another level I want to be in another dimension.
And If you want to go there too, then maybe I can help. Learn to trust God even when it doesn’t ‘feel good,’ even when your flesh says, “this hurts.” Sometimes we have to confront those things that we are most afraid of and for many of us it is the unknown.
“God’s plan often comes through unexpected events that force you in a direction you never would have gone.” Pastor Jentezen Franklin
I have also learned that just because a door is open and everything looks good on the outside doesn’t mean your supposed to walk through it. The first thing to do if your not sure is to test your spirit. Do you have peace in your heart about the decision or situation? If you don’t, then stay in prayer until the Lord shows you what He wants you to do.
Sometimes that requires a lot of patience and being very still. Which at times can be very challenging, I have been like that child on a long trip, “are we there yet, are we there yet?” I thank God that He is so patient and loving.
Learn to ask for confirmation, yes you can do that! But be prepared to receive an answer, (and not always the one you want.) Pray..pray..pray and pray without ceasing, until you are at peace about what to do. Know that the Lord will guide you in all your ways, and never forget if you are at a crossroad in your walk, the Lord does not give a spirit of fear. Trust Him to take care of you and He will. He wants nothing but the best for you.
I feel led to speak life over those that are hurting in mind body and spirit today. With the power vested in me I come to speak life over you, I speak blessings of peace and blessings of health over you. I speak life, “your going to live, my brothers and sisters, your going to make it. Don’t give up the fight for your life, you shall live and NOT DIE.” You are a child of the most high God, rest in His perfect Peace.
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”(1Cor2:9)
