God’s Discipline Proves His Love
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
So we have had the pity party, put in our efforts to run the race, waited on God, proved ourselves worthy and we still feel like God is not using us to our full potential. Yup, started to book my reservations yesterday for another pity party, table of one and was quick to hang up the phone when someone I love dearly showed me the other side of things. I just thought yesterday, “what is the sense of going up for prayer at revival? Nothing seems to be changing.” I began down that lonely road for a moment of what I had planned for my life and soon realized it was not a place I even wanted to visit.
What was going on? God was not moving fast enough for me? I want my books to be published. I want to be speaking in churches, sharing my testimony and I feel like I am just stuck in mud so to speak and I am not leading anyone in the things of God. I just felt like I was not doing anything for God and I saw no reason for receiving a touch from Him last night….how deceived can one become? Satan had just sucked me into his game for a minute and my emotions just played right along.
Chances are good if I stay surrendered, God will do all that He has promised to do in my life. I should continue to run the race set before me and my destiny will be right around the corner. I need to not let Satan and his brood play with my emotions. I know who I am in Christ and I am a daughter of the King. For God it is all the right timing. I could use up three blogs alone describing all the things God has done for me in the last year. God is moving in my life and I could say at a rather even pace. Perhaps He is wanting me to enjoy where I am for the moment before He opens the floodgates of the next big thing in my life.
Chance are good if I remain faithful and true to the things of God, He will come through with His promises. Chance are good if I keep running the race, God will give me victory. Chances are good if I continue to press in and seek God, I will find Him. Chance are good this waiting period will not be in vain but prove to edify my life.
