Your mood when you know your GOD has GOT YOU!! PRAISE HIM!!
Over these last few days, the Lord has really been stirring up a spirit of expectation and excitement within me. He has already been doing and is continuing to do over and above all I could ever ask or think and yet He tells me there is still more to come. I am humbled and I am amazed.
You see, when God tells you to let go of something or someone, when He calls you out from everything you deem to be safe, comfortable and familiar, He does so knowing full well that what He has ordained to be taken, is going to be replaced with better. MUCH BETTER!!
God knows when your current situation is not bringing Him glory. He knows that man or woman that you are with, does not share the vision required for you to fulfil your purpose in Christ, so you need to trust and obey what God is prompting you to do. No matter how uncomfortable or painful. It will be worth it. I can testify. Truly I can.
I have three wonderful children with my ex. We were together for nearly ten years, but God could not and did honour something He was never a part of, even with children involved. It may sound harsh, but through my experience I have come to understand that God cares more about our holiness than our happiness. His word can not lie, so we can not expect His blessing upon our lives if we consistently indulge in sex outside of marriage, or continue to date that unbeliever in the hope we can change them…just stop.
Obviously there are situations when God can do a mighty work of redemption and bring both individuals to Christ in quick succession, but when, like me you find that as you are drawing closer to Christ, your partner, your friends, your environment is trying to pull you away, it’s time to stop and listen to God. Read His word, chase after Him, pray to Him about your situation and ask Him to help you to see it as He does. He will guide you towards the path of glory. It will be devastating at times and there will be moments where you feel like all you are is experiencing is loss, but continue to trust Him. He can not and will not lead you wrong.
In my situation the Lord is making it very clear to me that what I lost is going to be restored abundantly. I received confirmation at church this Sunday as my sister in Christ prayed for my husband. My goodness, the tears flowed as the spirit of God permeated her every word and enriched my soul. This prayer was sent straight from heaven as she described the man of God I have often envisioned and who God is preparing to find me!!!
I am finding that I am in a place of such peace. I am completely resting in my Lord and Saviour and remaining obedient to His commands upon my life. The more I obey Him, the more He honours me. I am astounded by the way He moves. He is an AWESOME GOD!
