Sooner or later, things will turn in your favor!
Could you imagine, in your life today, that you would partner with God to create a life here on the earth with a realm of love, happiness, success, and overflow of abundance?
Majority of the time, when many people are facing desperate situations they lose all hope when they believe God doesn’t answer according to their needs.
But, could it be that they are looking at this completely wrong?
The Word tells us in Matthew 6, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on “earth” as it is in “heaven.”
So, I’m asking you today, what obstacle is causing your unhappiness instead of joy? What’s causing you to live in survival mode instead of a life of enjoyment? God gave us His BEST! And, when we are faced with challenges, just remember that your life and destiny are in the hands of God. Therefore, the enemy will try distracting what he cannot destroy.
We all, at some point in our lives, questioned God about the unattended needs in our lives. However, there are many of us in the world that don’t understand how God moves. Many of us today will say that God moves when we have faith as small as a mustard seed. Of course, that’s correct, and the Word of God is the T-R-U-T-H, alive and active. And, as a child of God, you are destined to be successful at whatever you put your hands to.
However, I must admit, although I know faith can move mountains, sometimes when I would seek the Lord for a need of something to happen in my life, and nothing was happening, I felt as if it was something I did or said that hindered my blessings. I learned to be obedient, hear God’s voice, grow in faith, but still, there was no answer from God for my needs, at least that’s what I thought. Although I thought I didn’t see an answer, nothing I worried about ever happened. And, everything I needed required more trust and faith in God. I have learned that sometimes we miss the realization of daily miracles because we focus on our expectations of how God should answer. We must realize God doesn’t think the way we think. Consequently, if we aren’t careful, we could miss the opportunity of a B-I-G blessing that Jesus wants to extend to us. We have to let go of the small thinking that places limits on what Jesus can do for us.
Even Christians become discouraged, especially when things don’t seem to be going well in our lives. But, the good news is God has helped us in many ways, when we needed a miracle or when we didn’t know where the next meal was coming from, or at times when we didn’t know how we were going to pay our rent. Here’s evidence. Pastor Victor (i5 City) said, (paraphrasing) “We know that God sees the people in Africa and many other countries that are in need of food and clean water. But, the need of having these necessities doesn’t move God. Why? Because God doesn’t move according to our need because He has already supplied and provided our need in His Son, Christ Jesus.” God gave man dominion over the earth, so it’s our job to reach out and help the homeless, hopeless, sick, poor and needy of this world. Therefore, if you are still looking for God to meet your needs then chances are you are facing obstacles head-on, instead of trusting God and meditating on His word. Ask Jesus to help you let go of trying to figure everything out.
God used Pastor Victor to open my eyes when he said “Philippians 4:19 (NIV) says, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” “God provided our N-E-E-D and that is Jesus!” Our need is Jesus and for anything else outside of our need WE must have faith and decide to believe God supplied it already. God has given us the revelation of His word and, for me, every time I feel I have a need I think about this message and it’s like falling in love with Jesus all over again!
What an amazing feeling to know that I don’t have to worry any longer about my needs not being met. The Bible also says, in Psalm 84:11 (AMP), “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows grace and favor and honor; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Therefore, if He already gave us His Son, which was His best, then what makes us consider that we need more when Christ was God’s Best? I’m not saying that we shouldn’t want success or financial breakthrough or our own businesses (see I said want not need) from God; He will not withhold any good thing from us who walk uprightly. God wants the best for us so we can start imagining and creating things in your mind and have the F-A-I-T-H to step out on the waters! With this in mind, who can’t live a life of balance and harmony, joy, peace, without worries, and in freedom? With us knowing this, all we must do is grow a faith that is as that of a mustard seed. Join me today in living the best life through freedom in knowing that we have all we need. We can trust in our Lord and Savior without being afraid, knowing that He will bring us heaven here on the earth and allow us to live in an atmosphere that we can enjoy, a life to the fullest!
