Oh my! I recommend prayer and fasting. After doing just a couple of days God delivered! Something changed within me. God is trying to reveal something to me and it’s getting through.
There was something that I was looking at that used to be so intimidating to me, but I have to say, that is no longer the case. I almost want to say I don’t believe it. I remember a while back the Lord spoke through this sermon entitled “Don’t let the chatter stop you”. I used to wonder, “stop me from what?” But sometimes we hear a word and we don’t get the full understanding until the right time.
My heart is healing. I’m not taking things personally anymore. And the more I pray and fast the more I’m going to get to the bottom of this. Is this all a ploy? I just no longer believe the sincerity of the chatter. I just don’t. I am going to get beyond the veil. Is it all a fantasy? I just don’t believe it anymore. Wow! Amazing!
What I do know is GOD has spoken and when we move past what He says there is a price to pay. When He shows us that twist of fate, going further in the way of error is NOT the thing to do.
Years ago, God showed me I was like a Deborah to a Barak. I always felt God would use me to help someone come out of something. But the thing about people coming out of stuff, they have to be ready. As long as they want to stay in error, there is nothing you can do.
But be warned. Staying in something after God has said no, has it’s consequences. This is going to be bad. Sorry to say it, but there is no way this is not going to get ugly if it doesn’t end now. Not being negative. Just telling the truth. So is it wise to keep reinforcing deception, or is it best to come out now?
King James Version (KJV)
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Yesterday I read the above words somewhere and it sparked something in me. If you are a blogger you know that anything can spark a blog post. 😉
We’ve all heard it. When it seems like it’s too good to be true it is. And guess what? I believe that. As long as we as Christians look for the perfect person, the perfect circumstance and the perfect life, we will inevitably end up disappointed. Perfection is in God and God alone.
I know of a couple that married and ended up miserable on the HONEYMOON! Yes, the honeymoon. When are we going to wake up and realize that some stuff is just a fantasy?
I want the real deal. No we probably won’t love each other perfectly all the time. Life won’t be perfect and it’s important to know that now, because when the storms come we will not throw in the towel because things are not ‘perfect”. Seeking perfection is dangerous.
If it seems too good to be true, TRUST ME it is!
I am greatly encouraged! Things have taken a turn for the better. God is good! All we need to do is obey and follow God’s instructions and show the love of God. Sometimes healing in needed, but I have no doubt that it’s going to be completed. I am taking it day by day. Let the healing begin!
I have NO DOUBT that I will have my expected end. Why? Because God said so and I am going to fall in line.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Be strong and steady as you watch and are amazed at the work I am doing in, around and through you, says the Lord. A deep work of healing and restoration is beginning and will be brought to completion. When this work is finished the trials and tribulations that you have endured will only be a memory and the pain will be gone. Trust Me to bring you through with a sense of wholeness and conclusion. Go forth in faith!
Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.
At some point we must let go of the reigns of control of our lives and let God do whatever He wants to do, especially in heart matters. I am learning to do just that. I TRUST GOD.
I am learning that whoever and wherever my mate is, and whatever he is going through now, is working for my (our) good. If he must pass through something else to make him a better man for me, so be it! God knows what He is doing. I know it. I know things are not ready. I KNOW IT. There is so much that is not right and unfinished. So there is no reason to fret. I see the signs. So I am going to let it be. My focus is to prepare for who God has for me. After all who wants a cake that is not fully baked (I’m talking about myself).
Preparation for me may take the form of dating another man. I am open to that. It may happen. God may want to send someone to restore the damage that has been done. I’m okay with that. I am just resting in what God showed me. And I have to keep quiet because God is fighting for me.
I don’t care if God has to deal with folks in dreams, visions, send prophetic words, thunder storms, etc…lol whatever. God is going to clearly communicate His will to whomever he has for me. First the whisper, then the louder voice and then the evening news. lol (I hope not).
I’m glad I’ve remained guarded with my heart. There is nothing worse with opening your heart too soon, only to not be able to go further. I’ve had it happen and it’s painful. Wait until it’s time!
Surrender your love life to God today! I am surrendering mine. I am on the road to intense preparation. No more passivity!
Song of Solomon 8:4
Amplified Bible (AMP)
4 I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, that you never [again attempt to] stir up or awaken love until it pleases.
THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH A LOVE SONG AND I LOVE THIS SONG!
Last night, I was pondering some things and looking at where I am and where I need to be and I couldn’t help but be grateful. And the reason I am grateful is because no matter what it looks like, God is faithful. I am grateful because of how God speaks. I am grateful that some things ARE written in stone. You just have to know your walk with Him. God is NOT a liar, nor does He change His mind. God doesn’t have ADD, like some of us. lol
Last night God reminded me of a dream I had several years back and all I could do was rejoice. You see, I have been having prophetic dreams since 1998 and all of the dreams God has given me have come to pass. Not one of them has not. So it was like the Lord was rebuking me. He showed me clearly in a dream that something I was concerned about is NEVER going to happen. So why fret?
God is faithful beloved! He has a plan and purpose and even when it doesn’t make sense, even when it seems like it’s too late, or you’re too old etc, just trust him. And yes, it’s going to take a little faith, but that is okay. All I have to say is God knows something about our circumstance that we don’t know. TRUST HIM!
New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.[a]
New International Version (NIV)
19 God is not human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?
20 I have received a command to bless;
he has blessed, and I cannot change it.
