Ever felt like nothing in your life was going right? Like God was simply ignoring you? Or maybe you have been praying and having faith, and things are simply just not manifesting quickly enough? Or maybe even the fact that you see others succeeding, and you’re struggling to even keep your dream alive?
If I could just be transparent with you guys, I was so close to giving up these past couple of days.
I feel like there is just a blockage right now in my ideas, visions, dreams, goals, my relationship with God… Whatever you want to name it. And I get so tired of people EXPECTING me to have it ALL together JUST because I am a Christian. I don’t. And can I plainly state something? What is it with the Church, where we expect everyone to have plastered on smiles, fake joyful emotions and just plainly having the appearance that we have it all together just for the sake of being “strong”? How is that being honest and transparent?
Christianity is not a bed of roses. Why do you think we have the Holy Spirit!? He isn’t called the Comforter for NO REASON! We lean ON HIM to get through the hard times. The unseemingly impossible circumstances. The times where you’re just so mad at God, when He’s only trying to mold and shape you.
Can I be real? Most people pull away from God when things are perfect and good, but then get close to Him when things get bad, then pull away again when things finally settle down and get better. Me, on the other hand, I tend to pull away from God when things get bad, when REALLY, I should be CLINGING to Him AND His promises!
I’m tired y’all, but I will never give up on this fight. I must cling to Him and never let go.
Let’s remember that this fight is spiritual and not physical. And know that no matter how long things take to receive and/or manifest, that God is shaping and molding you in the process.
Question: If you were to immediately receive your healing or vision, would you SERIOUSLY, without a shadow of a doubt, be able to handle it? Remember that God knows our hearts more then we do and see’s the TRUE condition of our deepest, darkest areas of our hearts. He can’t elevate us or give us something that WE AREN’T READY FOR.
For example, you wouldn’t give a license and car to a 5 year old. They wouldn’t even begin to be able to comprehend where to even start with it! Let alone the fact that they aren’t even tall enough to drive the vehicle! Lol!
See, God is the same way with us. He grows and tests us before He elevates us. He wants to make sure that we are ready for what we are CHOSEN or ASKING for.
So, if you are mad at God right now because you feel like God is taking longer than you think He should, REST. You are in good company. Even Jesus had to prepare and study for 30 years before He started His THREE AND A HALF YEAR MINISTRY. God is with YOU and is FOR YOU. Please don’t EVER forget that. And while you are waiting for whatever to manifest, renew your mind and soak yourself up with Jesus. You’ll forget that your problems even EXIST. I promise.
Pour your heart out to God and don’t bottle up your emotions and feelings thinking God can’t handle it. Hello, He created YOU! He can SURELY handle YOU! He can handle your anger, sadness, depression, bitterness, or whatever else. There is no emotion OR problem too big for God.
“I am the LORD God of all humanity. Nothing is too hard for me. – Jeremiah 32:27 (God’s Word Translation)
God loves you like crazy and so do I!
