I’m still marvelling over how God moved yesterday in church. There was one other thing that happened that really got my attention. My Pastor was ministering and he described a road that looked exactly like the picture to the right.
I was amazed as the pastor described this exact scene because I had just used this picture in another blog post (https://apropheticwalk.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/move-to____________on-you-own/) speaking about moving. But today the Lord said “that was a test”. Now it had to be God because I do not test people. I tend to believe people because I’m not a liar and I presume that most people are being honest. But God spoke to me about moving to test the waters. But sadly someone failed the test.
I know I have spoken in riddles for sometime, but I will break it down so it will be very clear. The move I was considering was about the possibility of a relationship with a man. Yes, I put it out there!!! lol But after a series of events, you’ll not hear me speak of the move again. If this is really the will of God it will come to pass without me moving on my own. Seem strange for me to say that? Don’t think it’s strange. It’s all about the progressive Will of God. You have to check your mailbox daily, because there may be a new memo. God never allowed me to move because he knew the other person on the other end “waiting” was not trust worthy. Yes, I am calling a spade a spade. Though God’s final plan may come to pass, the method by which that happens can change.
My mind recalls the dream about the snake in front of the door. When I decided to move toward the door, I saw the snake and went back home. That dream is manifesting because I am staying home and will never entertain moving again on my own. I was telling the Lord, the only way I would move is if Boaz backs a truck up to my door and moves me. Ladies, never move for a man. This was only a test by God.
Don’t think God will test you or someone connected to you? Remember Abraham. God told him to take his only son and sacrifice him. When he saw that Abraham was willing, God stopped him and provided another sacrifice. Another method. In my case, God was testing the motives of someone else and they failed. So the Father sent a new memo out and told me stay put. I knew it all along, but just cooperated with God. lol Yes, it was only a test!
God will always give us the opportunity to cooperate with His will. Then we have a choice. We can follow the path we want to follow, trusting that He knows best, or we can do our own thing. Then after we have gone down the road we want to go, he will remind us of the opportunity we missed. Yes, it was only a test.
Genesis 22:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
22 Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied. 2 Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”
