Patience probably is not easy for you. You understand that scripture tells you to wait on the Lord, but at times, waiting does not seem natural. It does not matter what it is, once you have learned to desire something, you want it now. God’s timing is not always your timing. God desires that you learn to place your expectations completely on HIM. God will show you the way you are to go, but you must learn to wait on HIM to bring it to pass. David was anointed king of Israel at a young age. Nonetheless, David had to wait many years for God to bring it to pass. David had many opportunities to take maters into his own hands and to kill Saul. However, David understood the strength of the Lord and David was willing to allow God to bring it to pass in HIS own timing.


“You are my strength, I wait for you to rescue me, for you, O God are my fortress.” Psalm 59:9


It is because you do not fully understand God’s power that you desire to take matters into your own hands and try to help God out. When God’s strength is not fully integrated into your life, you fail to comprehend how God can do the impossible. It is because of your lack of trust in the power of God that prohibits you from being as effective for God as HE desires you to be.  Until you take the time to draw closer to God, you will not have a relationship that will enable you to understand HIS strength. As you fill your life with virtue, your mind will be filled with the good things God has done for you. As you share with others the good report of God’s power in your life, your faith will grow and your love of God will increase. God’s testimony of power in your life will give you the strength to resist the temptation to take matters into your own hands and instead to learn to wait on God and allow HIM to bring it to pass.  God is not asking you to do the impossible; all HE is asking you to do is trust in HIM and learn to rely upon HIS strength. Jesus understood what God’s purpose for HIS life was. Nonetheless, Jesus had to wait eighteen years for God to open the door for HIS perfect timing to begin HIS public ministry.  You need to fill your life with the things of God. You need to take the time to thank God for the good things HE has done for you. As you take the time to study God’s impact in your life, your frame of reference will change and you will learn to understand God’s strength. As you tell others of how HE has worked in your life, not only will the faith of the listener increase but also your faith as well. The good report that you share will give you the confidence necessary to wait on the Lord regardless of the storm.  God desires to receive the glory by working mightily in your life. As you learn to wait on HIM, not only will your faith grow, but also the things that God can do through you will greatly increase. You need to pray to have God open your spiritual eyes. You must open your eyes to see the strength of the Lord. The Lord will direct and deliver you. Allow God to open your eyes so that you do not allow yourself to worry about how God is going to work in your life. See HIS strength by sharing the good report of HIS strength.

Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
