Some Things Take Time!

As long as we remain submitted to the process by waiting on God’s timing and not jumping out of the oven prematurely, He will continue to strengthen, encourage, and build us up in our hearts. Be careful that you don’t allow the fear of facing a trial cause you to move without God’s direction. By doing this, we can abort the process in our lives and disrupt God’s plan to deliver us without repercussions. God only thinks good thoughts toward us and has good plans for us. He wants to prosper us… not harm us, His children. We can reciprocate that love through trusting that He knows best. 

 

“To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You; let me not be ashamed; let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause. Show me Your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day.” ~ Psalm 25:1-5

Do you find it difficult to wait upon the Lord to come to your defense? When you’re engaged in a spiritual battle that has manifested in a natural situation, it’s tempting to want to step out ahead of God and miss His moment of deliverance or breakthrough. 

 

You and I both know that God could arrive on the scene of a storm the very moment it occurred, but He doesn’t always. Sometimes, He allows us to wait on Him, so He can accomplish more than just getting us out of “hot water.” Here’s the key: When we wait on God through faith, it is our faith that gives God an opportunity to make an impossible situation become a miraculous event. 

 

There is something even greater going on when we decide to wait through faith on God’s delivering power to come on the scene. He is building us in our faith so that we aren’t moved by the threats of Satan’s attacks against us. If you’re being pressured today because of adverse situations, then ask the Lord to strengthen you to wait until He shows up.

About 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!
