Whenever God wants to put two people together (God, not man), the actions of one will definitely affect the other. I remember so well a family member, (who I’ve shared about before), trusting God for a man who God told her was for her. Well at the time, he was tangled up in a mess. No matter how hard we tried to convince her that there could be someone else for her, she held on. His actions (sin) did not stop her and actually as a pure young woman, she really didn’t have to accept him at all. But God knew what was best and thank God she listened. They are now happily married and honestly they have one of the best relationships that I have seen in a long time. I say that because it is evident that God was the matchmaker.
This doesn’t just apply to relationships. It can apply to any vision that includes other individuals besides yourself. Their actions can very much affect the course or journey that you will take.
I know many of you who read my blog wonder why I’ve gone back and forth with my geographical move. Well, I’m going to let the cat out of the bag. It’s because there is another individual involved. And I KNOW God was telling me to get ready to move. In 72 hours I received so many confirmations that I was awestruck. Well within a week or two it all had changed. At the time, I couldn’t tell you why, but within a short period of time, I found out why. So I am back at square one. Very disappointed, but understanding that a “new memo” came to my mailbox and this one said “stay put”.
It’s been hard to me to accept this latest memo. I was so ready to move and make this change, but now it seems as though all conditions are not ready. Now, I have to get my spiritual equilibrium back. God knows I do. One day I will help many others to understand that your circumstance can indeed change because of the actions of another. I’m sure I’m helping someone now.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Release yourself from all frustration and irritation. The things that haven’t worked out the way you hoped they would were for the purpose of a course correction. You will gain some much needed wisdom from recent events that had the potential for disappointment and discouragement. Forgive yourself and others, and ask Me for wisdom. I will provide not only wisdom but direction and guidance. Trust me to keep you in the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord.
Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
