My Journey Moment by Moment: Part 1

I believe God writes our journey everyday of our lives and we see His work moment by moment. Whether those moments are good or bad He will give us what we need in those seasons.

This year 2020 has taken a turn from the very beginning. What I thought would be a normal year has been a year of testing and trials, victories and moments of despair. But who knew I would see miracles performed this year in my family. Moments that I thought would be the end of someone close in my life. A moment of loss not of someone else’s life but your own can also have a mental effect that I never known.

It started in January, with my dad having a heart attack. He got diagnosed with having a widowmaker heart attack. It’s a type of heart attack that’s caused by a 100 percent blockage of the left anterior descending (LAD) artery. And for most people its sudden death. But God is a way maker.

  1. Way Maker — Psalms 77:14 “You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.

After we arrived at the hospital, while we were waiting un-patiently for anyone to come out and give us an update, I read a mural on the wall with the verse:

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us” — 2 Corinthians 4:7. Meaning God is in control and whatever our journey may bring we must realize we are empty vessels that have no power but only to trust in His power. Finally, a man wearing a white coat walked into the waiting room asking us to follow him into the consultation room. The cardiologist after sighing and looking at each one of us showed us the X-ray of my fathers heart. One artery was almost completely closed off. In amazement he said he had 99% blockage in the left anterior descending artery. “Do you believe in God” he asked, our reply was “yes, yes we do”. He then said “It was Him who kept him alive” Astonished, we knew then we have seen God make a way.

Every Good Gift

EVRY GOOD GIFT

Everything we have is a gift from God, whether it be our job, the car we drive, etc. the ultimate gift is Him!

James 1:17

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”

It’s the holiday season which is the time for all the Christmas parties. In hoping to receive a good gift whenever it’s time to exchange gifts. You always have that thought of the dreadful fruitcake. Because someone didn’t have time to shop or they rummaged in their pantry to find a last minute gift. But whatever gift you might have got stuck with, might not have been what you wanted.

As I’m growing older, the Lord is teaching me to be content with what I already have. To be grateful for whatever season that I am in, and to trust Him regardless of what is around me.

We can get so wrapped up with what the other person has and how we envy, become jealous of that “perfect gift” that we think we should have.

  1. There are times when we don’t get the gift that we “want”

Because we don’t need it!

He will give us the gift that we need for the season that you will be in. God will give you that spouse, vehicle, home or whatever desire of your heart when it is His timing.

How? Why?

God’s ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts.

In a way some of us may think that God is being mean by withholding that perfect gift. But life itself is a perfect gift. And Jesus is that perfect gift!

Psalm 84:11
For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

2. HE IS AN ON TIME GOD

He knows what you need next wed, tonight, He knows when and how to deliver that gift! whether it be:

  • deliverance
  • Healing
  • Strength

He does not change, he will not waiver according to your SITUATION.

IF I HONOR GOD’S PROCESS.
HE WILL HONOR HIS PROMISE.

Moses & The Burning Bush

Join me in the coming weeks as we start the new series of Moses. God has spoken to me in the past months about the character of Moses and the Grace that was shown towards His children and still is. I have so many notes that needs to be shared. You’ll never see Moses like you’ve never seen him before!

Distressed, dazed and confused; Job was that man. With questions to God why such suffering is taking place in his life, so too you might be asking God the same questions.

We should thank God for our tribulations, do I sound crazy? The Bible tells us in Romans 5:3 ” We also glory in tribulations knowing that tribulations produces perseverance and perseverance, character and character, hope.

Job 16:12 “I was at ease, and he broke me apart; he seized me by the neck and dashed me to pieces; he set me up as his target;”

His ways are not our ways, we will never understand how God works at least here on earth. In my prayer time I lament over certain areas asking Him why am I going through so much pain with this! But then I remember this verse:

Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God. – Isaiah 66:9

In other words ” In the same way I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born,” says the Lord.

 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.  But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed – 1 Peter 4:12,13

 

In order for God to bring you into a new season, He has to work on you, the old things, the habits, the weights. If we surrender to Him; yes the process will hurt, the temptations will get rough but He never permits the righteous to be moved! Stand your ground and praise Him through the trial.

 

“But he knows the way that I take; when he has tried me, I shall come out as gold.” – Job 23:10

Walk in His Presence

We are not our own, we are His! When God walked with Adam in the cool of the day He too walks with us everyday. But how aware are you of His presence? As you draw closer to God He desires to reveal the beauty of His face to you, as we walk with Him, he will open the scriptures to us through the spirit of wisdom and revelation and reveal to us the light of the Glory of God that is to be found in Him.

“Who else can compare to you O Lord?
I’ve seen your work and your faithfulness to me,
How could I turn back and walk away?
I will pursue you and not let go
My heart longs for you; everyday let it grow.
Your majestic beauty that I long to see,
Awaken my spirit to feel you closer to me.
Let me not be lead by my emotions but with passion.”

Honor and majesty are found in His presence; strength and joy are found in His sanctuary
– 1 Chronicles 16:27
