It's Already In Motion (What God has for You is for You)...
1 Thessalonians 5:16-19
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.
Many of us are becoming frustrated, impatient, bewildered, angry and disappointed to name a few because things are just not going the way we planned. Some of us have a 5, 10 and 20-year plan all mapped out but things just aren't coming into play. I thought about Proverbs 19:21 which says, "Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand." In other words, we can make all the plans that we like, but only the purpose of the Lord will stand.
We can have a very strong will, and many times our will to do something or want something can be of good intentions, but anything that tries to precede the will of God can be dangerous. Yes, God has given us a free will, and that's a wonderful thing, but when we pray Lord your will be done it sets us up for His perfect will and that's where I want to be.
We really must learn how to walk by faith and not by sight because our senses will have us in a crisis, but our faith will have us in peace which is the will of God. The enemy will do whatever to keep us from our blessings, but we must remember that no devil in hell can stop the plans of God. When God is ready to bless us it's a done deal because it's already in motion. I'm excited about what God is doing in my life and I know that it's going to be something else because what God has for me is for me and it's good. We must trust in God and believe His word and know that the blessing is already in motion. 1 Peter 5:10 says "After you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. In other words, God will use our sufferings to bring about His gracious work in us and to prepare us to also share in His eternal glory. This place called earth is only our temporary home and while we are here we will have the test before the testimony. The test is not to break us, but to prepare us so that we can handle it when it arrives. A good Father will always prepare His child so that when it comes it's going to be a celebration.
Stop fretting and meditate on Philippians 4:6-7 knowing that God has everything under control. Pray, praise, be grateful and remember to be thankful knowing that your blessing is already in motion. Self examine yourself every day and stay with a heart of gratitude knowing this will keep you humble. We must keep our attitudes in check because our attitude determines our altitude.
My challenge to you is that you pray for God's will to be done in your life trusting that it's already in motion. What God has for us is for us and we should trust that He's going to get it to us with our prayers and cooperation in preparation of receiving. As we obey and cooperate know that our blessings are being released and are in motion to arrive at an appointed time. Rest and enjoy life my friend because God has not forgotten you. His timing is not like ours so stop looking at the clock and trust Him.
Be encouraged and know that it's already in motion, and as always Keep Looking Up!!!
