God Gets it!

God Gets it!

For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust. Ps. 103:14

Almighty God loves and understands our past, present, and future ways. Whatever happened in our past that influences our behavior today is clear to Him. God gets it. As He transforms us, He heals the areas causing our wrong behaviors while preserving the traits that make us unique. With full knowledge of who we are, the Lord rejoices over us. He comprehends the who, the why, the when, and the how of all we are.

When others misunderstand us, we might feel rejected. But when we remember that God gets it, we can rest in Him, knowing He loves and accepts us. As we delight ourselves in the Lord, He gives us new desires and strengthens those He has already placed in our hearts. These desires lead us to yield to the Spirit of God for transformation and growth.

As we grow spiritually and our focus shifts from the natural realm, those around us might not understand. What happened? The Lord got us. He understands because He holds us. Everything that pertains to us… He has it! Hallelujah! Now we get it, from glory to glory!

As We Go!

As We Go!

And they lifted up their voices and said, ‘Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!’ So when He saw them, He said to them, ‘Go, show yourselves to the priests.’ And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. – Luke 17:13-14

As we walk by faith, we obey God’s instructions regardless of what we see in the natural. It’s through our obedience that the reality of His word manifests. The more we walk with the Lord, the more we realize the transformation He has made in our lives. This transformation unfolds as we go, not before we take that first step.

We cannot bargain with the Lord, saying, “When you heal me completely, then I will obey you,” or “When you do this or that, then I will do this or that.” Our obedience to God is not conditional. He is our Lord, and we trust Him with every step we take in His name. We recognize the changes He has made in our lives as we continue to walk with Him.

We strive to always obey Him, even when it’s difficult. His way is always the best way, the only way—the way, the truth, and the life! As we go, we grow. Sometimes, we go through challenges just to see that we are no longer who we used to be, that we have changed. As we walk, others see the healing of the Lord in our lives,  from glory to glory

Do We Act Hastily?

Do We Act Hastily?

Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.’- Is. 28:16

Do we act hastily? When we say yes too quickly to someone’s request just to please them, without knowing if it pleases the Lord, it can lead to unforeseen consequences. If, during a business transaction, we are pressured to decide immediately or risk losing a deal, it likely isn’t God’s best for us.

We put ourselves in a difficult position when we must respond hastily, under pressure, without time to seek the Lord’s will. We need to ask the Lord for His wisdom, even if we have only a brief moment. God will honor our desire to know His will. People should respect our request to be led by God, even if they don’t understand it.

Sometimes, the Spirit of the Lord comes upon us suddenly, prompting us to act or speak without time to think. That is His doing, as He purposely bypasses our reasoning to fulfill His purpose. This is different from the decisions we make intentionally. Let’s allow the peace of God to guide us, moving slowly and thoughtfully, not hastily, from glory to glory!

Why Did You Doubt?

Why Did You Doubt?

But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, ‘Lord, save me!’ And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, ‘O you of little faith, why did you doubt?’ – Mat. 14:30-31

We should make decisions with no doubt. If we sense uncertainty, we must wait until we attain God’s peace. If it’s only 80%, wait for the remaining 20% hesitation to be resolved. It might be something God will show us we need to work on before moving forward; the timing might not be right, or all the pieces might not be in place. We wait for total assurance, expecting God’s best.

Unchecked issues can become roadblocks. We might overlook something that seems insignificant, but we cannot ignore anything that hinders our peace. The Lord guides us to stay put by giving us a lack of peace. If we realize we’ve taken a direction without being sure, we humbly surrender the situation to the Lord, and He will show us what to do.

This is different from self-doubt, which comes from our carnal nature. Those reservations often arise after we’ve made a faith decision. Let’s pray for the Lord to remove any doubts and heed the precious witnessing of the Holy Spirit. He will guide us into all truth. We can depend on Him,  from glory to glory!

All Things Together for Our Good?

All Things Together for Our Good?

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. – Rom. 8:28

Whatever we think God is doing in our lives, we quickly find out He is doing much more. It’s as though we walk on a dot-to-dot pathway. With every step, a dot connects to another, and the picture becomes clearer. Not only do we move from dot to dot, but we also are like dots that God connects to fulfill His purpose.

We can’t guess what the full picture will be, because each dot reveals something new and crucial. While we may not understand how each part connects, we can trust that God works all things together for our good. We are His workmanship, and He cares for us deeply. Even though we don’t know what tomorrow holds, we know He holds our tomorrow, and we can rest in Him.

We enjoy the journey from dot to dot, knowing that each new destination is a new season, not the end. Even when it seems like nothing is moving, something is; we just may not see it. Constantly trusting that there is more to attain keeps us hopeful and prevents discouragement. Moving from dot to dot means there is always more to come, from glory to glory!
