Let God do What He Needs to Do to Get You There

Blessing came amid my planting seeds and tending to my garden today.

I recalled the days and weeks before where God called new movement to action – specifically calling me to attentively address a few things.

He ordered my steps, garnered my movement.

When we look to God for change, He looks to us for obedient actions. And, in our obedience, we plant seeds of Godly movement that brings about spiritual change in our lives.

When the time is right, it is God that will bring about the harvest, as we remain faithful to our commitment in Him.

Persistency pays off – even if the result looks different than what you’ve envisioned.

Persistency pays off – yes, even if the outcome looks different than what you’ve planned.

My plans included what I believed to be the best batch of potential business contacts.

God surprised me.

He caused the one I’d set aside for later to call me back today.

I came to the realization that God will put the perfect outcome before us and that it will be fitting for our needs.

What we never thought we needed is what God chose a “best for us.”

After a continuous “grind” I found myself burnt out, tired, frustrated, sad, angry, and a little anxious at times.

After a brief time of “letting things settle down a bit,” God began to activate the need of pursuit within me.

Because of my constant state of having been “settled,” I found myself to have “settled into” it, and I cast doubt – fear even – when it came to movement and the thought of pursuit, and, nevertheless put off pursuit until I just could not any longer.

As I approached the prepared time of pursuit, I encountered fear, self-doubt, reluctance…all anxious emotions that initially prevented my action in response to God’s push.

But in my encouragement, and in God’s push to pursue, I accomplished.

Every. Name. On. That. List.

And then the one.

Be pursuant in your obedience to the intended pursuit of the Lord.

Because in your obedience and within your pursuit is Godly manifestation of Godly purpose all wrapped up within a mighty Godly blessing. And I had to learn that.

Is God initiating or stirring pursuit within you? If so, what and how is He calling you to fulfill that pursuit?

Producing the Promises of God

At some point, producing the promises of God is in our hands to complete.

How, you ask?

By purposefully holding ourselves to task. Producing the promises of God requires 2 simple things: obedience and action – both of which somehow become one in the same along the way.

Read: Ecclesiastes 3:1

God calls us to purpose and He sets it all up; but we sometimes get distracted and stopped along the way by hindrances to a Godly outcome: fear, procrastination, anger, fear, unbelief, disregard.

Do we let our own set of standards and way of thinking prevent us from doing our part to see the promises of God fulfilled in our lives?

Today was my day. To get past every holdup, every excuse that held itself in higher regard than the truth of God’s purpose that has been called over me.

Never doubt God’s viewpoint of you and His purpose that has been called within you! When you do, you leave little room for accomplishment to take place.

Today, I gained control over what God tasked me with to complete – it gave me such Godly motivation, and I feel empowered by His spirit to keep moving. Encouragement from my husband through the Holy Spirit came at the just right moments.

Some days may require more output, others less. But one thing is for sure: it requires a response to the push of God within you.

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” – Isaiah 26:3

Getting beyond the “moment”

It’s easy to “change” when God reveals things to us in that awe-inspiring moment. But true change takes place when we commit to the every-day endurance of it.

Being open to change means living beyond the first encounter and interaction with it. It is for us to make a daily commitment of Godly intent, Godly wisdom, and Godly actions and standards in the implementation of it.

Enduring brings about patience, and patience about the strengthening of our faith – the benefits of God’s truth set within us.

Giving It ALL to God

Giving it ALL to God with our expectations, sorrows, discomforts, and He will give you joy, peace (!), and understanding?

We cannot begin to gain the magnitude of God’s greatness nor even the magnitude of His total and complete LOVE.

Allow God to write you a love story; it’ll be one that is never-ending.

Within His perfect love story, you’ll find yourself/ you’ll find new discoveries, you’ll find love – ultimate love – and surely God’s total and whole peace. All of this because you have God ALL OF IT.

Justifying peace

What kind of pain does God feel when He has to exercise patience with us?

To be alert to this awareness justifies why the Lord takes time to reach us as He teaches us.

Understanding that the Lord’s painful process took place with and is associated with the death of Christ on the cross helps me to understand the magnitude of importance of my taking His process to heart.

So each day I look to see how the Lord seeks to teach, and I ask Him for His understanding in building my character in the likeness of His.

Letting Peace Produce a Godly Harvest

After a couple days of practicing obedience to God, I find myself in a calmer place, both spiritually and naturally so.

Every day living comes with a sense of self-awareness – in my interactions, engagements, conversations, thoughts, and even in my personal time with the Lord.

My approach to things in efficiency and awareness comes a little easier – I guess all things become much easier when we submit our ways into the Lord.

Starting this new journey has taught me so much already, and I am enjoying the produce of God’s peace and His blessing of the work of our hands. I look forward to what God will show me next and to learning more in Christ and in being more like Him.

Bless God!

God IS SOVEREIGN

In this moment, I am reminded of a forceful prayer God placed on my tongue just a few months ago: “Lord, deal with them justly.”

I prayed this with such utterance and strength of the Holy Spirit. Any one, any thing, any entity who’d done things against or to cause God’s children suffering would be dealt with harshly because of their hatred for and evil deeds to us.

The lesson of today is that nothing is too hard for God, a welcomed reminder in God dealing with those who have tried to rise up against us – against those who have tried to reek havoc.

I allowed myself to be ministered to today, hearing the Word of God and allowing it to recall those fervent prayers prayed in righteousness.

Tonight I sit in Godly expectation because of God’s power, God’s promise, and God’s strength.

The work has already begun.

“Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.

Jeremiah 32:17

Prayer and Movement

Today’s devotion setting was eye opening in a manner that gave me insight about honoring the Lord, having understanding, and looking at things from His perspective.

These things I should already know, right? Yes, but it is at this moment in my faith walk – my Christian journey – that the Lord desires for me to gain greater understanding, perfect practice, and ultimately character growth in accordance with His will.

Walking through the days elements after my time with the Lord was both helpful to taking corrective action in surfies areas of my life, being more compassionate, and being more aware of understanding his requirements for me and my approach to and within various circumstances.

My demeanor was more clean and relaxed, my will power more intentful.

What have I learned on this day?

Walk in alignment to God’s will, submit yourself to His ways, and He will guide and direct the outcome of the rest. Wait on the Lord – in thoughts, deeds, and actions – and He will work things out on your behalf.
