We will always have problems, though we can change the way things ultimately go by standing in faith on the word of God.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever. Psalm 23:1-6 (NKJV)
Everything is there; God is grooming you to be exactly what he desires you to be Oh Faithful Servant. He has given you all provision; there will be no need or lack because he has provided for all situations. He will give you peace in your heart and rest in your soul so that you will be fully replenished He restores you completely. When we are obedient and rest in His Word, (Be still and wait on the Lord) he restores us completely FOR HIS NAME’S SAKE. He walks with you through the fire to lead you to the other side. He lets everyone know that you are His. Every Word from Genesis to Revelation reveals that He is God and we are His. They hate you because you belong to God Almighty and you abide in HIM.
He won’t change your Situation, because He is trying to change your heart.
Everything that is happening to you is because of the choices you make in each and every situation. The good things and the bad occur because of the choice you made. Every time something bad happens it is the result of what you have set into motion through your choice. The same is to be said of the good things that occur, they occur because of a choice you made. So when things are going wrong, stop and find out what was happening and what choices you made when they started going wrong. Were you listening to the Holy Spirit? Were you asking for guidance? What was your choice and attitude at the time? Did you listen completely to the Holy Spirit?
Proverbs 16:7 (AMP) 7 When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
So if there is no peace then are we pleasing the Lord? It is always good to question your motives and every step that you take for the Lord. Always make sure that you are in the will of God. There are always going to be things that we find in others that is not right and that many of them are straying from the Word. We must be prayed up and consult the Lord in how we are to approach them. That means that we should be in tune with the Holy Spirit and let Him guide us to bringing these transgressions and lapses to their attention. A good example of that is when Nathan Confronted David about his transgressions 2 Samuel 11. God directed Nathan in every step of bringing this to David’s attention, so that he would be brought to the realization of his transgressions.
When we are correcting our brothers in Christ we need to be in line with the Lord. Even Moses consulted the Lord and spoke the Words that the Lord had given him when dealing with the Pharaoh. God has a plan and a way already at hand. When we are walking the walk and applying the Word to our Lives then the Lord gives us the Words to say to them that will convict their hearts. Not our Words, God’s Words.
God guides us through each step of his plan. Before we begin any task for the Lord, He gives us step by step Instructions and all the things we need to accomplish the task and all we need to do is follow His instructions. Proverbs 16:9 (AMP) 9 A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure. Psalm 119:133 (NKJV) 133 Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me.
Sometimes we get ahead of God, and in our haste to serve Him we don’t always get all the information that He has for us and this causes problems. If we had taken time to meditate and listen to the Holy Spirit then the task would have been accomplished and completed as God had intended. When we wing it we tend to mess things up.
When you see somebody that’s struggling, more than ever, you need to let the encouragement flow. Your words can be what keeps them going. There is much to learn from the Parable of the Prodigal Son. God’s Word should be applied first to ourselves and we should meditate on it thoroughly before applying it to others or trying to share it with others.
Being Opinionated is not an option, we need to be Centered on the Lord and ask What would Jesus Do. I can’t change anyone. I can share the Love of God, and my way of life will show them the Presence of the Lord in my Life.
Your words must line up with your walk and Jesus Christ must be in you. Trinity of God intertwined with the Trinity of Man (We are one with God) and that is where we will ultimately be when we fully abide in Christ Jesus.
