What an amazing thing the Lord has taught me!!!! I hope you all might be blessed by what the Lord has shown me!
RUNNING IN CIRCLES
Do you have a situation in your life right now that you feel like it is that ONE thing that the Lord does not seem to be touching? It seems like all your prayers about that ONE thing are exactly what the Lord does not answer you about? Maybe you are willing to settle for just some wisdom or any kind of guidance about it, and you feel like even that is no where to be found?
It’s like running in circles, trying a different route here and there, but ultimately, you end up at the same point you started at. You just can’t seem to get to the destination in this situation! You are desperate for HELP!
Well, I have been dealing with a situation for a longgggggggg time now that I feel I’ve gotten absolutely no where with. I feel like I’ve tried everything I can possibly try to make it better. I’ve explored what I needed to do or change, what I needed to do in connection to the situation—-but nothing really seems to be “working”.
And then, this past weekend, during my quiet time alone, I read an amazing little article by Austin Sparks about when we seek for the Lord to reveal Himself to us—– that He will send other believers to our lives, and Christ is manifested to us through them. He uses His Body—the Church—-to minister Christ to each other! When I read this—it flashed through my mind all the people I have met over the years, and even the books I’ve been led to read—-and even coming across all of Sparks’ work—that was a Divine appointment! God will lead us to the person/resource we need when He wants to reveal Himself to us!! It is always in connection to His Word and Body!
As I prayed some more about the ongoing situation in my life—-I asked the Lord to reveal His Mind about it—to show me what to do—to please lead me and guide me to the wisdom I need about what to do.
A few hours later, I got a phone call from my sister in Christ—whom I never met in person—-and met on April’s blog—– and we got to talking about the situation—and it turns out she has been through a lot of similar things and she had a lot of wisdom that she learned, and as she shared it with me, I heard the Lord speak to me in my heart and He brought to mind what I had read about how He will reveal Himself through the Body—-and that what my friend was telling me, was actually His confirmation that I was on the RIGHT ROAD all along!!!!!!!
The whole time I thought I’ve gotten NO WHERE—— I have been on the right track, and God has not forsaken me! He has been here all along, changing me, changing the situation—-and revealing Himself in and through and by it the WHOLE TIME! WOW!
THE DEVIL IS TRYING TO MESS WITH MY MIND AND FAMILY
THE DEVIL! He is the one who has been feeding me the LIES that I have gotten no where and that I am a hopeless case and it will NEVER change!
HA! HE IS WRONG MY FRIENDS!!!!!
GOD WILL NOT ALLOW ONE THING TO HAPPEN WITHOUT HIS PERMISSION!
WE ARE IN GOOD HANDS HERE!
THANK YOU JESUS! ALL GLORY BE TO GOD! HE IS ON THE THRONE! ABOVE ALL RULE AND AUTHORITY AND POWER!
THAT IS OUR LORD!
Keep your eyes open to how the Lord brings His Body to you when you are seeking Him to reveal Himself to you!!! And see how He brings people to YOU when you are united to the Lord and in the presence of Christ Jesus our Lord—-He will use us to minister Christ to His people as we lay down all to follow Him! 🙂
