I pray that everyone is living their best lives and that your holiday was filled with joy, peace and love. I pray that this message will be blessing to you and enrich you on your journey of life.
I had been reading and in prayer about some things. Can I vent? I’ve been in panic mode. Worrying about some finances, family and business. Yesterday, I was lead to read Psalms 91 and God simply says give me a chance. You’re not suppose to be worried about this or that. Rest in me, and even when stuff come up, I won’t let it touch you, you’ll be able to keep going. Mannnnn I’ve read this passage so many times but yesterday I really needed to hear that. I was like the kid who fell down off his bike and scraped his knee and cries and run to mom and dad, only for them to say hey, it’s going to be ok, you’ll be fine. I posted a quote today that I written in my phone and it simply says. Stop worrying so much that you give no room for your Faith to attach to God’s Promise. Let me break that down. If you stay focus on your dilemmas and situations, you will never be able to reach for God because you will be too focused on trying to come up with a solution or the ultimate solution. I joke with a friend on occasion about this phrase he uses and encourages “Take Rest” and honestly we must Take Rest. Take rest in knowing that God is going to work it out for us. Take rest that you can stop worrying. It’s a process, and you will totally have to flex that faith muscle to get the ball moving on those faith biceps. Trust me it’s a journey but God will not put more on you than you can bare.
Also, if you are like me looking and waiting for a blessing from God please make sure that you stay open. Be open to the limitless possibilities of God and stop thinking that there is only one way for God’s blessings to come through. The reason why some of our blessings haven’t come through yet is because we’re not open to them. God may want to use the co worker to bless you who you don’t speak to in the morning. God may want to use that annoying friend who looks up to you and who calls you all the time to bless you. God uses people! In the bible he says that the riches of the sinner is laid up for the just but how do you get to them if you are closed off? The world is so much bigger than your city, your church, your job and even your own family. There are people from all walks of life looking for your ministry, your business, your intellect and they are ready to invest and be a blessing to you. Don’t get caught up with people looking different from you. We are all God’s children and we are his creation. We sing and preach about God being a miracle worker but we diminish the light on God’s power when we think that the blessing can only come from a promotion on a job or a raise. When we begin to take the limits off of God (take your hands off the steering wheel please) and REST in him, then the blessings will flow. Most of us are already blessed and don’t even know it. If you’re able to make choices, count yourself blessed. If you can go to your closet and stand there for 10 minutes picking out something to wear for one day, You’re blessed. The homeless family may only have that one shirt to wear. We are a blessed people. Remember to be open. Remember God’s blessings and miracles are unordinary and breaks scientific research (the virgin Mary). So stop looking for them to be how you think they should look and be open for him to bless you.
For with God Nothing shall be impossible
I love You
