Expectation to Manisfestation
I entered 2018 with an expectation. I was not sure of what God was going to do, but I knew, He had plans.
Glory to God, I am now walking in a season of manisfestation. The little things I was expecting are nothing compared to what He is doing!
This season of manisfestation is pushing, propelling, and placing me into new territory!
This is not to sound like I am boasting on me, because I know it is not about me.
I want to encourage you to continue to walk in expectation. Speak expectation over your circumstances. Stay connected to the Vine! Your season of manifestation is closer than you think!!
Psalms 23:1, Ephesians 3:20
When someone holds the door for you, normally you say, "Thank you".
When you receive a gift, you say, "Thank you".
When the wait staff bring you food, you say, "Thank you".
When God wakes you up, do you say, "Thank you, Lord", or do you jump up and start your day?
When you prepare breakfast, do you realize there is food to prepare, and tell God, "Thank you?"
When you shower and get dressed, noticing that you have clothes to wear, are the words, "Thank you, Lord", uttered out your mouth?
When you lock the door to your place of residence, meaning you have shelter, where is your, "Thank you, Lord?"
I think you get the point. We are so quick to tell people thank you through out the day, but not once have we stopped and just told God, "Thank you!". Not only because we have food, clothing, and shelter, but because He is God! God that loves, guides, and provides.
He is worthy of, "Thank you!!"
News flash!!! You cannot control everything when you walking in God's will. He is in control, even when it looks uncomfortable.
So, just breathe. Breathe in God and breathe out everything else. You have to isolate yourself, find that place within, and breathe out. As you breathe in, breathe in the Word.
Breathe in.... I am more than a conqueror
Breathe in... No weapon will prosper
Breathe in... I am the head, not the tail
Breathe in.... I am a child of the Most High God
Breathe in... I speak life over myself
Breathe in.... Jesus
Breathe in..... Jesus
Breathe in.... Jesus
Then wait.....how long? Wait until you get the breakthrough you need. It might take you more than an hour, a day, a month.... Eventually, you will breathe in the Word so much, you will let the distractions go!
Pray For It?
I was talking to an awesome friend yesterday and she said something that got my attention. She said simply..... pray for what you want.... just like that....simple,right?
Well, what if what you want is not what God wants for you? How long do you pray that prayer? Is that prayer now a selfish prayer?
I have been praying a prayer for sometime now, many years, and the situation has not changed. I am frustrated, irritated, mad, discouraged, and maybe a little depressed. There are good days and bad days, feel like more bad than good. The prayer started as change the person, change me, move them away from me, and finally, Lord just bless them. But the situation remains......
Is it wrong to keep praying what "I" want if it does not line up with God's will?
All I keep hearing in my spirit is, "My grace is sufficent." This thorn in my side, God knows. He allows it and I know ALL things will work together for the good and He will get the glory.
So, if you too are praying the same prayer but the thorn or thorns remain, remember His grace is sufficient and He will see you through.
2 Corinthians 12:9, John 14: 13-15, Luke 22:42
Yesterday, while at the gym, a song reminded me of something very important. I was singing my heart out, in my mind, and silently in my head. As I continued, God spoke to me....
I want to encourage you with those words. When you said yes to God was it conditional?Did you say yes, as long as everything is smooth sailing? Did you say yes, as long as you know everything about what He is doing? Did you say yes, as long as you can do what you want to do?
Sometimes, you need to sit back and review what you said yes to and WHO you said yes too. Your yes cannot be conditional to God. Your yes is not my will but your will be done, God. Your yes is I trust you, God. Your yes is I will walk by faith and not by sight. Your yes is a yes, even when the road is a little bumpy.
Did you say yes to God? Great! Now remember He is in control and He is guiding, protecting, and preparing for you daily. Keep walking in a yes spirit and leave doubt and fear behind.
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
