Good morning Lovelies. Father God, help us! Where we are weak, make us strong. Where we are wavering, help us lay our anchor down. May we find strength through knowing You hold us. We no longer need to be held down by the world’s claws. May we believe You are so believable we see Your hand in our everything. May we fall into Your arms of grace so that we never feel the sting of condemnation rip us apart. That is not You. And, truly, we want nothing that is not associated with You, it will only leave us empty. God, You are one that leaves us on full. Not once, but all the time. God, give us You. Increase our faith, make us into fighters who don’t back down. May we know, strongly, You are what we need to run after. You are the answer to everything. You are the only way. Tie down our heart to You. Thank You for Your unfailing love for us, Your blessings, and goodness. Thank You for Your faithfulness to guide us and see us through times of uncertainty, for lifting us up, and setting us on high. Thank You for Scripture that comforts and reminds us of Your promises, plan, and provision. Thank you for taking away our fears and worries, the what-ifs, and reminding us that our help comes from You. Help us be a good steward and to sow wisely through the blessings of Your Word and Your provisions. In the Mighty Matchless Name of Jesus. Amen!!
It really doesn’t matter how bad things seem right now. Don’t you know that this fight is fixed? I know things can get bad, but if you wait on God you will find out that it was all just to provide a greater release for you. God is allowing the enemy to test you because He wants more out of you. You can stay the same, always doing the same things and never really going anywhere if you want, but whenever you decide that you are ready to step up and receive your breakthrough, you will be tested.
It doesn’t mean you are cursed, or a bad person. It doesn’t mean you are doing things wrong or God is punishing you. It just simply means, go through and your breakthrough will come! You cannot breakthrough anything until you have the proper momentum. It’s like throwing a rock through a window. If the rock doesn’t have enough force, it will not break through the glass. So, God makes sure you have the proper momentum before you break through to your promise. Don’t worry about it and don’t give up! Just hold on and wait for the breakthrough that was promised to you.
The key to really breaking through is waiting. Many times, we jump the gun and go for what we know, only to find out that we should have waited on God. The sad part about this is, we can usually look back and see a trail of bad decisions based on an inability to wait on God. And until we decide enough is enough, we will continually get it wrong. I believe that there is a sure path for everyone to take. And I believe that many times we are blinded by what others have or what we don’t have. We see it through the eyes of our wants and desires instead of through the Spirit.
God is trying to tell us that He has everything we need. Yet, we want to go before God and then drag Him along, believing He will work it all out in the end. But, this s a destructive pattern because the fruit of our errors will only grow larger. Even though we may have a calling or believe we have a purpose in God, we could lose our family, friends, children, jobs, money, homes, etc., behind our inability to wait on God and His sure path. Waiting on God means that in spite of how we feel or how desperate the situation becomes, we decide that unless God shows up, we do nothing! This is the place that God desires in our life. He wants to be first and not last. He wants us to be sensible, and mature in our thinking. He wants us to consider the loss and count the cost. It takes preparation and time to do these things. The wait is not just a senseless period of time that God needs to work things out, but it’s a time of preparation for the big picture.
This is where those that are called are separated from those that are chosen. The ones that are only called do things for self, because even though they know they are called, they can’t overcome their own agendas. Some of them. I won’t say that all of them are this way. But the chosen ones are the ones that wait on God no matter how trying it gets! When you don’t wait on God, you are telling God that you don’t trust Him. Your breakthrough is delayed and may never come if you don’t trust God for it. God wants us to the point where we know Him and can put our trust in Him. The period between the wait and the promise is the period where we learn to trust in Him for everything.
Scripture says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6. This is the path to your breakthrough. When you lean on your understanding, you make mistakes! When you take the leading of the Spirit out of the picture then you really are saying that God is not in control of you. God wants to be Lord over you. He doesn’t want you giving the enemy the ability to always stop your progress. You have a responsibility. You must get to a point in your life where nothing else matters. Your personal feelings don’t matter, your past doesn’t matter, and what people have around you doesn’t matter!
You have to get to the place where, no matter what it cost, you are gonna wait on God!! Every great leader or pastor waited. There was always a time of preparation in their lives and the same goes for us. We have to wait on God! But be of good courage during your waiting. If you make the right choices and do it God’s way, your waiting period can be wonderful in itself. You can experience God and know Him through the test and trials of your waiting period. And it will make your journey more fulfilling if you can hear Him and follow Him through your journey. Your breakthrough is coming, all you have to do is wait!!!!!
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Live life, give people hope and share your heart, wisdom, and resources. Never place a period where God says there should be a comma.
As always peace and blessings, be safe. Take advantage of your opportunities but never allow your opportunities to take advantage of you. Remember God loves you and so do I. © 5.14.18
