Hello everyone! Welcome to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so happy that you came to join me today and I pray that while you are here; that you will truly experience a God, who loves you…more than you, will ever know!
One thing that continues to amaze me about God; is how He can work in ways that are only known to Him…that is, until He begins to unfold His work before our very eyes. This past week, I’ve been watching Him do this, within my own life.
You know…one thing I’ve learned about prayer; is to not only leave everything with God; but to also pray for God to work in His own way, rather than telling Him how He should work. I truly believe that when we share a need with God and leave it there, for Him to decide, as to what should be done; that these become the moments, when we truly begin to see how God can work within our lives. In fact, we not only see what He can do; but we also see how He can work in ways that we could never begin to imagine.
Within the past week or two, I have found myself struggling to keep my head above the troubled waters. It seems like Satan has been working overtime again…trying to take me out of commission with God; but moments like these remind me even more; that there has to be a reason why Satan is coming at me so hard.
Anyways, I’ve been praying for God’s peace and strength; so I could get through the difficult moments that I have been facing. Also…one night, I got alone with God and had a good talk with Him…in fact, I probably poured my heart out to God, more than I have ever done…as I shared my every thought and feeling with Him.
Monday evening, as I was preparing to write for Tuesday morning, I received a text, which was dealing with the problem that I have been facing…which eventually led to a phone call. As I began to not only take a stand for myself…but especially for God; it was like God was reigniting me and bringing me back to life, while helping me to feel the great depth of love He has for me. I began to experience moments that I would have never expected to see happen…and I truly believe it was because I had let God handle my problem His way.
You know…we can find it so easy, to unknowingly attempt to tell God what needs to be done in our lives. First of all…I’ve always wondered why we need to give advice to the greatest and most powerful being, when He sees more than we will ever see or experience, in our walk with Him.
I don’t know about you…but trying to figure out a problem and have God work it out my way, only seems to lead me down a road of frustration…fear and doubt. I have come to see that anticipating God’s best for my life, brings surprises and unexpected blessings; that could have never been experienced, through my own ideas, as to how these prayers should be answered.
When we can truly let God make the final decisions, as to how our prayers will be answered; then we will quickly see that His ways are always the best ways to follow. I also believe that when we leave every need up to Him; then we are also letting Him lead the way, while we learn to follow.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
