Amen. The way things are I've been doing that a lot lately!
This year has been horrendous for some of you out there….. Some of you were given bad reports concerning your health, for others, it looks like your life is not lining up with what God promised. Like the Apostle Paul: Some of life’s circumstances have beaten you with rods, has stoned you or your life suffered shipwreck; your life looked like it was on a smooth course, but unforeseen situations, rocks in the undertow, if you will, caused you to crash and wrecked your world. (2 Corinthians 11:25)
But, my assignment for today is to let you know all of these things were designed by the enemy to distract you from God’s purpose for your life and to draw you away from God’s promise. God’s love for you is greater than any circumstance you may have encountered or are going through right now. Your circumstances do not dictate to God—No, God dictates to your circumstances.
Why? For it is written: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” saith the Lord, “thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
An expected end means hope and a future. Now if faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1) this problem begs a solution. First, we must understand that faith is the heart of hope. Right now some of you are feeling that your faith must not be strong enough because you are not seeing the evidence of it yet. And again, you may feel that you have no faith at all. Faith brought you here today. You cannot take one section of your life and define the outcome– And just because you can’t see your future does not mean that one does not exist for you. In order to see the evidence of your faith—you must believe God’s promise and understand your purpose. And no matter what circumstance you are in or attack you may be under right now you have to remember…..
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Not only must you be what you believe but you must also know that you cannot get to the promise without walking out God’s purpose for your life—You must be in God’s will His way.
You have to get a nevertheless attitude just like Jesus. Saying, “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.” (Luke 22:42) This mindset realizes God has the authority to remove whatever circumstance you’re dealing with, but like the three crucibles, if He doesn’t He is still God and we know that………
And this same mindset allows the manifestation of the miraculous. Because in a paradigm shift God’s power always exceeds what He has done in the past.
May the Blessings of the LORD be with you today and always. Thank you for your continued readership and support. Stay tuned for the conclusion next week. Until then…. Blessings and Peace!
