Live by the Leading of the Holy Spirit!

We are never going to be able to wait for the promises of God in our own strength. Instead, we must learn to rely upon the Holy Spirit. When we allow God’s spirit to dwell within us, we can wait patiently for the hope that is to come. It is hard to have faith that God can do the impossible when your world is crumbling in around you and nothing is going according to plan. Nonetheless, if you are going to be all that God desires you to be, you must remember to allow God to be first in your life.

“But we who live by the Spirit eagerly wait to receive by faith the righteousness God has promised to us.” Galatians 5:5

We must understand that when things are darkest, that is when God desires to allow HIS light to shine through us. We must understand that when things appear to be impossible, that is when God desires to show HIMSELF strong in our lives. It is not about us and our own strength, it is about HIM and what HE can do through those who are willing to wait patiently on HIM.

What is the impossible situation that you face? Does things keep appearing to get worse and worse? Focus upon the Lord and what HE desires you to do. Remember it is not your righteousness. Listen to the voice of God and set your attention on things above. Once you understand who HE is, then you can be in a position where God can do the impossible through you, and do not attempt to take matters into your own hands, you will only make things worse. Instead, understand that waiting is just a part of God’s plan for your life and that the more difficult the situation appears, the more God will receive the glory.

You will never be able to patiently wait on the Lord in your own strength. Instead, you will need to lean on the everlasting arms of God. Accepting God’s perfect plan for your life will not be easy. But that is exactly what God desires you to do. God has a great plan for your life. However, you will not be all that you can be for Him as long as you continue to waste your time pursuing the things of your flesh. Stop wasting your time on yourself and instead, fill your time with the things of God so that HE might receive the glory for the good things HE desires to do through you.

Have a wonderful day as you remain in His presence. Love you all.

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!
