Blessed Are those Whose Strength Is In You, whose heart Is set on pilgrimage."
My God my All, Do As You Have Said You Will Do for me and my family,I acknowledge openly and joyfully to Your honor in Jesus' Name, Amen!
The promises of God are for His children to believe in, trust in, and expect Him to Do as He said He would do. Too many do not know His promises, and ask for things that He never promised. Then they get disappointed and perhaps even angry at God because they did not receive what they asked for. They will say that they did what Jesus said to do, To ask in His name of our Father, but What they asked for may not be God's Will for their life.
Also, what they ask for could be His Will for them, but His Timing and Order are not the same as theirs.
Many desire the blessings that He has provided to others. They are blind to the knowledge concerning what the person had to do in order to receive these blessings from God, and what the person has to do in order to Keep and Grow these blessings from God.
They keep Ignoring the truth that what God has for them Is His Best for them, just as what they see His other children have Is His Best for those children.
Sadly many are so focused on getting what others have they never reap what He has promised to them. Which are the Promises that He has spoken for All His children to receive from Him.
They also seem to Not be concerned with What They Need to do, but only with what God's part in this is. We each have our part to complete, concerning His promises.
What in our heart and character may be hindering, blocking us from receiving what we Ask Him for? Do we lack forgiveness for others, for ourselves, have we spoken aloud to our Lord our sins? Did we obey His directions given to put us on the correct path that the blessings are on? Do they really, truly, honestly Believe whole heartedly that God Will Do what He said He would? Do they speak His truth, but live through their flesh instead of by Faith through His Spirit?
These are just a few of the things that make up "our Part".
They may be focused on how God is going to give to them, when and what way will it come by, they may be focused on their lack and because of what they lack, they may not even believe that God Is Able to do everything He said He would in spite of what we each lack.
If only they would believe, then they would know.
(James 4:1-10 NIV)
Many do not ask God for mature and willing spiritual ears and eyes that are able to Hear and See through their Faith. That is what we all need to make sure to ask for, obedient, willing ears that are able to Hear Him Every Time He speaks to us. Reading His word, studying His word, and Asking His Holy Spirit for revelation of His word is what we all need to do. The word is printed on the paper, the revelation is not and only comes through the Holy Spirit.
"Abraham Didn't focus on his own impotence and say, "It's hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child." Nor did he survey Sarah's decades of infertility and give up. He didn't tiptoe around God's Promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, Sure that God would make good on what he had said. That's why it is said, "Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right."
But it's not just Abraham; it's Also us! The Same thing gets said about us When we Embrace And Believe the One Who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless. The sacrificed Jesus made us fit for God, set us right with God." Romans 4:19-25 (The Message)
"No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) Concerning The Promise of God, but he Grew strong and was empowered By Faith as he Gave Praise And Glory to God, Fully Satisfied And Assured that God Was Able And Mighty To Keep His Word And To Do What He Had Promised. That is why his Faith Was Credited to him As Righteousness (right standing with God)."
Romans 4:20-22 (Amp)
As we spiritually and emotionally mature and grow in our relationship with Jesus, we begin to learn and know the Everlasting Faithfulness of God. Once we get to know Him as our Faithful Father, we then are able to fully and completely rely and trust in His Everlasting Faithfulness.
You have to believe He Is, before you will trust and lean upon Him.
Because He Is Ever Faithful, His Promises Are Exceedingly Great And Precious to His children. God has never broken a promise He made to His children and He never will.
I know that we all have experienced the human promises made and not kept. Surly we each have made and broken a few ourselves. Broken promises only add to the heart more brokenness. I have become very cautious about making promises, before making sure that I am able to keep them. I do not want to look back on my life and see that I only left good intentions and what God desired for me to do incomplete.
He tells us who we are in Him and who He Is in us, through us and that He is for us. He has chosen, called and anointed us to do all that Is In His plan and heart for us and others. It is our faithfulness that goes before us into the Spiritual realm and establishes and releases His Favor to pave the way we are lead to walk each day.
His light will move every hindrance, stop every lie and accusation spoken against me, turn every trouble into a blessing, Make His way through every block set to stop me.
He does All this And More, because He Promised to do this for those who walk in His Spirit by their faith. His Spirit leads us to walk by faith, going forth with a heart and character full of integrity and humility in order to accomplish what He needs us to do in His name, for His Glory.
I know that I belong to Him and that He has chosen me, He called me out of the darkness into His Glorious Light!
With this truth I know that every promise that He has spoken to do for me and my family (natural and spiritual), That He Is Exceedingly Able To Do, So that His Name Will Be Magnified through our lives in the name of Jesus, So Be It, Amen!
Abruptly Jesus broke into prayer: "Thank You, Father, Lord of heaven And earth. You've concealed Your Ways from sophisticates and know-it-alls, but spelled them out clearly to ordinary people. Yes, Father, that's the way You like to work."
Remember, God cannot teach anyone who has stopped listening. No one can teach another who has stopped listening, which means they do not want to learn.
2 Peter 1:3-9
