We can depend on the manifestation of what has been conceived in us by the Word of God, the incorruptible seed. Some plant, some water, but surely and only God gives the increase. He watches over His word to perform it.
When we are pregnant in the natural, we do not show right away. It is during that time that what we are carrying cannot be seen. It is the telling and no showing time. What is happening on the inside of us doesn’t correspond with what can be seen on the outside. We try to go forth as usual, but what was– can no longer be. What is unknown keeps drawing and pulling us from what is known. We walk by faith and not by sight. As we prepare our surroundings for what is coming, we realize that one day the growth of our seed will become evident. We are not yet sure of what is going to be birthed, but we know that nothing can stop it. As it grows, our confidence in its fulfillment grows as well.
We trust in the faithfulness of God bringing to pass what He has purposed. What we have been carrying is helping us move forward, regardless of the circumstances. We are driven from within by the Spirit of God. He is able, unstoppable, and remarkable. His purpose unfolds, from glory to glory!
Philippians 1:6 “… being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ…”
Are circumstances in our lives and in the world so concerning we are losing confidence in the outcome? Our confidence in the outcome of a situation is determined by our confidence in the Lord. No matter what we face, unseen events are taking place carrying more impact than what eye can see. We cannot comprehend these events with our natural mind; they are related to God’s ability, not ours. The problem intensifies if we try to figure out what’s going on, or we take it into our own hands.
A woman was driving in a snowstorm and couldn’t see in front of her. The road she was on had no place to park and other cars were behind her. Calling upon the Lord she suddenly was led to fix her eyes on one spot in front of her car and heard the Holy Spirit say, “Keep your focus on what I show you.” It was very specific, and she couldn’t look at the way the snow was falling, the cars behind her, the cars beside her, or any other place– only to what He showed her. He used this one point of contact to take her through. Similarly, during storms in our lives, He causes us to keep our eyes on something specific. It could be simply keeping our eyes on Him and trusting Him for the long run. What a precious Lord!
It’s supernatural to walk in Christ. God is doing a marvelous work in and through us. He is taking us through trials miraculously. We are coming out stronger with deeper roots and greater faith, from glory to glory!
Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;”
