Good morning, Amazing and Beautiful Ones:
I’m so thankful for each of you and I continually pray for your strength in the Lord. Keep fighting the good fight of faith. Do everything in decency and in order. Let no words come from your lips that have not been filtered through the Precious Holy Spirit and Word of God.
Today, I want to encourage you to seek God’s direction BEFORE you make a decision that you are unsure about. Counseling with God prior to making a decision brings forth several things.
First, seeking the direction and counsel from God puts you in right alignment with God. It puts you in a place of submission and it gets you out of the way.
Secondly, when you ask God to order your steps, you are showing God that your faith and trust, in Him, are strong.
Third and finally, when we dont seek God first it creates an even bigger mess. Why? Not only does God have to now take extra time to rescue us from US, but he must prepare the situation/season again. We then must walk in obedience into the direction he had prepared originally.
Hopefully we wont keep making the same mistakes over and over. That gets old really quick. The Sovereignty of God will not allow us to into a higher, more advanced, season if we are not prepared for or equipped to handle.
I wonder how many seasons of blessing and destiny have been missed or delayed because we didnt wait on God’s timing or seek His face.
Amplified Bible (AMP)
5 Let your gentle spirit [your graciousness, unselfishness, mercy, tolerance, and patience] be known to all people. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. 7 And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].
I encourage us, brothers and sisters, to do things in divine order. Seek the Lord, while He may be found.
King James Version (KJV)
6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
I love you with an amazing and everlasting love. I want God’s very best for us all.
Pray the Lord’s Prayer today, and every day.
Make saying the Prayer a habit. If you have to say it twenty times a day, do it. It will get you in the habit of praying and seeking God. The Lord’s Prayer gets OUR agenda out of the way and forces us to focus on God.
Be Abundantly Blessed and Obedient, in Jesus name. Amen.
