What Are You Doing While You Are Waiting On God To Move In Your Life?

Are you praying and staying in faith?   How often do we pray and then fail to stay in faith?   How often do we give up when we don't see what we have asked God for come to pass in our timeframe?    We have to remember that our timing is not God's timing and God's timing is what is best.

The big thing about life is that we do not know what our future holds but God does.    He knows the beginning to the end.   He know what has happened, what is happening, and what will happen.   Nothing catches God by surprise.     We have to trust Him.  We have to remember that our faith is in Him and He can do all things.    

It can be hard waiting on God to move and yet that is exactly what He told us to do.    While we are waiting, He told us to be strong in Him and to be courageous.   He told us to trust Him and to lean not to our own understanding.   He told us to acknowledge Him in all our ways and He told us to be patient.    None of this is easy to do but we have to remember we are not doing it alone because God said that He is with us always.   So He is with us to help us to do all of these things as we wait patiently on Him.   


SCRIPTURE MEDITATION 

Isaiah 26:4

Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal.

Have You Surrendered Your All To God or Are You Holding Parts Of Your Life In Reserve?

What are you going to do today?   How are you going to live life now?   At this moment and at this present time, what will you do with your life?   Will you surrender it to God or will you go about living in the moment and doing any and everything that your flesh desires to do?   At some point we need to surrender in totality to God.   At some point we need to give Him our all.   

We have to understand what it means to give God our all?    It means to cast your cares on Him.   It means to surrender your life to Him.   It means to trust Him completely and to worship Him fully.    Have you given God your all or are you holding parts of your life in reserve?    Are you afraid to let go because when you let go you admit that you are not the one who is in control?    

Understand, God is asking each of us to surrender.  He is not asking one person to surrender and not another.   Our points of surrender may be different but we all must surrender to God and ask God to lead, to guide, and to direct our lives.    So let's make today and every day about God.   Let's wake up with the intent of surrender.   When you intend to do something it means you aim at purpose.   In other words, you have something you are aiming at and what you are aiming at has a purpose.   

Be determined to live life God's way.   After all our lives belong to Him.   He is the very air that we breathe. 


SCRIPTURE MEDITATION 

Romans 12:1

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

How Are You Handling The Situations In Your Life? Are You Carrying Around The Weight Of Worry?

How are you handling the situations that are going on in your life?   Are you casting the care of them onto God or are you carrying around the weight of worry?   God does not want you worried.   He wants your full faith to be in Him.   He wants you to trust Him to do what He said He would do.   He wants you to stay in faith knowing that He knows the things you have need of and He is faithful and just to provide you with those things.   

God said in His Word to trust Him and to lean not to our own understanding.   He said to acknowledge Him in "all" our ways and He will direct our path.    We have to trust in, depend on, and do what God has told us to do.    God doesn't want us to be weary in our well doing.   It is His desire to honor His Word in our lives but it is our obedience to His Word that will allow the release of His blessings to come forth.    

No matter what it is that you are facing in life, remember, God can and will take care of you.   Remember, God is not a man and He does not lie.   He will honor His Word but you have to have faith in His Word and you must wait on His timing.   God is never late.   He is always on time.   We just have to remember, no matter what the circumstances are, He is working everything in our lives together for our good and His glory.

Are You Limiting God's Work In Your Life By Your Failure To Trust and Truly Believe That He Can and Will Do Whatever Needs To Be Done In Your Life?

What is it that you need for God to do for you?    Do you need a financial breakthrough?   Do you need Him to open up new doors?   Do you need healing in your body?   Do you need peace from the storms that come with life?   What is it?   What is it that you need?

Understand, God's ears are open to our cry.   He is faithful and He is just to bring about the breakthrough that we need right here and right now.   He can and He will do it.   Do you trust Him or do you live in the fear of "what if"?    What if it doesn't happen when you think it needs to happen?   What if things don't work out the way you plan or think they should?   What if? 

No matter what it is you are in need of in life, you have to live in the knowing that "God can and God will".   Even when things are not working out according to your plan, you have to know that nothing is too hard for God.   You have to know that God will change your natural circumstance with His supernatural power.   You have to know and trust that He is working everything in your life together for your good and His glory.   

Never forget that God is our source and He is our resource.    Always remember, He can make a way even when we can't see the way.    God's power is only limited by our faith.    Do you believe that He can and will do what He said He would do in, for, and through you and your life.    Remember what the angel told Mary ... "be it unto you according to your faith".


SCRIPTURE MEDITATION 

Isaiah 43:19

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”

Are The People, Places, and Things In Your Life Bringing You Closer To God or Driving A Wedge Between You and God?

Are there people, places, and things in your life that are changing you?  Are they changing you for the good or the bad?   Are they bringing you closer to God or driving a wedge between you and God?    What is it you want from God?    Do you want to be closer to Him?   Do you want Him to bless your life beyond measure?   Do you want Him to open up new doors for you, in you, and through you?   If you want God to do all that, why would you let anyone or anything pull you away from Him.

Are you walking in the truth and living in the truth of God's Word?   Do people know from your walk and your talk that you are God's representative here on earth?   Are you hiding who God is to you and in you or are you letting who and what He is be displayed through you?    There is a difference in knowing God and knowing of God.   When you know God, you know that there is nothing or no one more important than Him.   You realize that without Him there is no life and there is no love.   God is love.   He is the very essence and breadth of life and you know that there is nothing you can do or accomplish in earth without Him.   You know and realize that He is ready, willing, and able to take care of you and all that concerns you in life.  You realize the fact that knowing Him ignites your love for Him and it enables you to receive His love for you.   

SCRIPTURE MEDITATION 

1 John 5:3-5

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

You Have Been Given The Victory. Now The Question Is ... Is Your Faith Triumphing Your Fear?

Are you speaking out loud for God or are you sitting on His Word?   Are you afraid of what others will say to you or about you when it comes to your confession of faith?    Understand, your faith has to triumph your fear.   The word triumph means to obtain a victory as if by military force.    When you call the military into a situation, it means there is either a life threatening situation or some type of natural disaster.      Understand, God wants us to use His Word just like we use military force in the earth.   He wants us to speak His Word over those situations that threaten us in life.   He wants us to use His Word to rebuild those areas in which the enemy has torn us down and caused us to feel as though we can't and won't make it. 

Don't sit on the Word you know.   Understand, God has prepared you for such a time as this.   If the only Word you know is the name of Jesus, understand there is power in the name.   Just speak the name.   Call on the name.   Trust in the name.     

God is ready to use your life.   He wants you to be a beacon for Him.   Shine bright in the midst of darkness.   Hold tight to God's promises.    Walk in great expectation trusting God to fulfill His promises to and in you!     


SCRIPTURE MEDITATION 

2 Corinthians 1:20 

For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

When The Enemy Comes In Like A Flood, Remember, God Is Fighting For You

Do you believe and trust in what God has said?    When He said that He is with you always.   Do you believe that?   Do you truly believe that God will never leave you nor forsake you?   Do you believe that He is watching over His Word to perform it in your life.    What do you do when the attacks of the enemy pour into your life like a flood.   Do you stand still and let God be God?   Do you believe that He will raise up a standard against the enemy and do you believe that you will win no matter what?

What you believe does matter.   You have to know God, trust God, and believe God.   If you don't know something, how can you believe it?   If you don't believe something, how can you have trust and faith in it? 

Take time today.   Take time to spend time with the Father.   Take time to read His Word and to learn about His attributes.   Take time to understand what He thinks about you.   As you do, you will grow stronger in your faith.   You will gain stamina and be able to stand against the fiery attacks of the enemy.   Remember, the devil will use any willing vessel.   So don't be surprised where the attacks against your life and livelihood come from and remember, God is fighting for you.   So be still and know that He is God.    

SCRIPTURE MEDITATION 

Exodus 14:13-14

“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”
