Walking By Faith

Walking In Faith

Job 23:10
“He knows the way I take”

What confidence I have because of the way I take, This way of trials and tears, however winding, hidden, or tangled. “He knows”. When the furnace is heated hotter than usual, I know He still lights my way. He who knows and directs my steps. The furnace may be hot, but I trust the hand that lights the fire will not consume but only refine and when the refining process is complete not a moment too soon or late “I will come forth as gold”. When I feel God is further away, He is often the nearest to me. (Psalm 142:3) “When my spirit grows faint within me, it is You who know my way”

He will do this

Ever wonder how self effort always hinders God’s work? As we pray with a confident trust in Him, He simply just wants us to wait in an attitude of praise, sitting still, doing nothing except trusting in Him. This at times causes a feeling of uncertainty with a tremendous temptation to take the battle into our own hands. know that its difficult for Him to fight our battles and work things out when we insist on trying to fight them or work on them ourselves. So often we fail to give Him the opportunity to work, not realizing that it takes time for Him to answer our prayers. Everything takes time, therefore we sow the seed He planted and bear fruit, waiting and trusting until His purpose has been fulfilled.

Dancing With God

Dancing With God

So beautiful as my Heavenly Father is showing me visions today. We are walking along side the ocean, my toes feel the cold sand and the clear ocean water gently covering my feet. My smile is so innocent, my eyes are sparkling, I feel the beauty within me shining through. I have the happy in my heart and I know no one can take this away. He takes my hand and gently spins me around as I dance. (He knows how much I love to dance and be spun around and around), His touch is so warm and I feel His love, Ohhh how amazing His love feels like no other. As He whispers… “My Precious Princess, know that I love you, no one can take this way, He will need to ask me for your hand before I accept, This man will be True, He will honor and respect you and love you like I do”. How Lovely is this vision that My Father is showing me as He whispers to me. Thank you Father for Your love.

Dip In The Waters Of Forgiveness

So today I find myself having to dip in the waters of forgiveness. After letting go of a relationship that wasn’t serving me or healthy for me I’m forgiving the person that has hurt me. Why you may ask? Because I know how my heart beat is. Imagine some of the arteries flowing blood to and from the heart are blocked. The pumping is weak and everything is getting congested. That’s what unforgiveness does in our soul. Its a soul toxin because it blocks us from giving or receiving love. Today God is inviting me to bathe in His waters of forgiveness and let the love flow freely again. Forgiving = releasing. This changes when we release our hurt. I imagine my hurt like dirt covering my skin and when I forgive is like the water washes it off. I just stand under the shower of forgiveness choosing to release their debt until the hurt and bitterness is washed away.

Reading Sign Posts

I realize God lovingly pursues me. He has been showing me throughout my journey single word sign posts through conversations and visions. All these words I know are important, teaching me how to love, how to live and how to be free. I would like to share some single word sign post that He has shown me.

STAY: Sometimes He needs me to stay right where I am. I believe its because He’s working in me and there is no safer place than being with Him.

WAIT: I’m sure a lot of us have heard or seen this sign post before. Now more often than I like, He simply says “Wait”. I know sometimes we get impatient and we’re in a hurry, But He knows the best work takes time and He’s doing a good work inside of us, ( I try to remember He is never in a hurry).

GO: Even when I feel uncertain, confused or alone, I need to trust to “GO” believing He will make a way.

GRIEVE: There are times in life when it hurts so bad the only thing I can do is “GRIEVE”. I try not to fight it knowing my heart matters to Him and He’s healing it. So I allow myself time and space to grieve what hurts.

TRUST; This is actually something He has been telling me to do more often than not. This one I find hard to do at times with my actions and choices, even though I know in my mind I want to. Meaning- Trust: Reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc. of a person or thing. Confidence. He is all of these. Integrity, strength, able, sure. Sometimes there is no action on my part.

BELIEVE; He whispers this one to me. Sometimes my current circumstance may make it clear that this is all I can do. To Believe, To have confidence in the truth.

PRAY: This one is a must do and yes it works. (James 5:16) ” The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

CELEBRATE: I believe He loves a good party, He gave us joy because He knows we need it, He is a God of joy. We have permission to find something worth celebrating. So lets hit the pause button on the drama in our life and just celebrate.

 

Love 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast. It is not proud. It does not dishonor others, It is not self-seeking, It is not easily angered, It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails”
