Is there something in your life that you have been asking God for? Is God taking His time answering? Are you growing weary and frustrated with God from waiting?
Ask yourself, am I making a decision based off of presumption or faith in a promise I received from God.
No. Although you may be alone and feel alone, you’re not alone in your suffering. The Lord is with you. He sees you. He knows where you are. He knows what you need and how to get it to you.
Jesus is the good Shepherd. The One who laid down His life for His sheep (you and I). In Psalm 23, King David beautifully depicts Jesus’s role as the Chief Shepherd in our lives: He loves us, cares for us, leads us, guides us, chastens us, corrects us, protects us, and provides for us etc.
Sometimes when we receive promises from God, we anxiously look ahead while laying down or neglecting what God has already placed in our hands. This shouldn’t be so.
It’s imperative that you are able to ascertain God’s will in every season of your life so you’re not led astray by your own lust and desire or deceived into going down the wrong path by the enemy.
I know it’s hard. We are living in increasingly frightening and lawless times. However, today I want you to do two things if you have five to ten minutes to spare:
Did you know that as a believer, God has promised you sleep and rest?
It’s been a hard season for so many, me included. It’s like the most difficult season ever that won’t end. But I’m coming to understand that it’s not necessarily about the season ending or the circumstances changing. Don’t get me wrong, we want them to change. I WANT THEM TO CHANGE! Lol However, God is teaching us a greater lesson.
My heart is so full. I’ve been in a wilderness period for quite some time. I’ve had to endure suffering and discomfort–things that my flesh absolutely hate. I don’t like discomfort or suffering. This flesh that we’re all housed in doesn’t like it. However, I’ve been able to stand and endure it all because Jesus has been with me every step of the way.
