This morning God spoke to me in a dream and showed me very clearly that my prayer and fasting is not in vain. We have to contend for the will of God. Don’t think that the enemy won’t try to hinder us from moving into the purpose of GOD. Not our purpose, but God’s.
When I remove my emotions and what I feel about a certain situation in my life, I know that I don’t have to worry. God’s perfect will IS going to be done.
Never mind our emotions. Never mind feeling rejected. At the end of the day, it’s about God’s purpose. Yes, even marriage is about purpose.
If I look at the circumstances I would say “heck no”. But I want PURPOSE more than I want to feel good. Oh trust and believe, good feelings will come LATER. But God is not concerned about giving us the emotional high of “so-called love”. which comes and goes. Love is a decision and not so much a feeling. And how do we know that? We know that because we’ve all met couples who were madly in love who ended up almost killing each other later. It’s not about that. God is a matchmaker.
I have to fight for purpose! And God’s purpose is going to be done. If he has revealed it to two people, he will do it, even if one is rebelling now. I shall not be moved! And it really helps hat this challenge was shown to me BEFORE HAND. Glory!
As long as I keep my emotions out of the way and focus on purpose, I will be just fine!
New International Version (NIV)
10 I make known the end from the beginning,
from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say, ‘My purpose will stand,
and I will do all that I please.’
11 From the east I summon a bird of prey;
from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose.
What I have said, that I will bring about;
what I have planned, that I will do.
