Everything you could possibly desire exists within the recognition of His presence.
Sometimes our blessings and answers to prayer come in the most peculiar disguises and from the least expected places & people. God has a plan for your turn around! It may not come through the door you've expected it to - or even the door you want it to, nevertheless it's the plan God has chosen and creatively hand-picked specifically for you because He sees the ending from the beginning. Trust Him and rejoice for your breakthrough is at the door.
Life changes - God's love for you does not!
There will undoubtedly be times in your life when God says it's time for this & this & this to happen; when He says, "NOW is the time" - and then everything opposite of what you heard Him say begins to erupt into your life. In those times a person's faith can be greatly shaken, OR, it can be greatly matured.
During those times, you can either choose to believe Him at His word and grow stronger in your faith. Or, you can allow the circumstances, (which is much easier to see with your natural eyes) to become more powerful than your faith in Him for the unseen promises.
It's not always easy to do but with Him leading you, you can absolutely walk by faith and not by sight. The trials and contradictions to His promises are merely temporary, and everything which is temporary proves itself to be exactly that....merely temporary. Then, you will see your breakthrough by the hand of the Lord - SUDDENLY!
When we step into the realization/revelation (purpose) of who we are created to be in Christ, the carnal minded things we once perceived to be of such high importance will become of a lesser value to us and placed into a more balanced perspective from a Kingdom viewpoint. Knowing who we truly are and living as such, is to know genuine freedom!
Being different from the rest of the crowd doesn't define you as an oddball or an outcast or as thinking you're better than everyone else, it simply means you are your own individual person and understand you are uniquely who God created you to be rather than who society would like to transform you into being. Let them be them and you be the best "YOU", you can be!
13-16 "Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day."
When someone else doesn't value you it doesn't mean you're any less valuable. It simply means their perspective has a bit of a flaw standing in the way of their field of vision.
Please know that the Lord finds you highly valuable and completely worth His time. In fact, He's willing to give you all of eternity spent with Him. I'd say that's pretty valuable!
As Believers, we should live in the state of entanglement with the Kingdom of Heaven and the Word of God.
We are not to strive to be titled as a prophet, teacher, pastor, evangelist or apostle, etc.
Every one of those titles and/or services are carried out in their fullness within the title of heir and sonship.
We need not strive to become great in our calling of service but rather, set our hearts and minds on knowing an amazing relationship with our Father and living in our authentic identity as sons through Jesus Christ.
I am not a servant. I am a son in my Father's house who serves by revealing the heart of my Father to others.
I heard the Lord say, "Trust Me and then watch what I will do with your trust."
I then saw a hand which was filled with a substance that looked similar to molding clay or putty. The clay/putty seemed to have life within it's own existence.
I knew this substance was our "trust", in the hand of the Lord. I watched as the hand placed the clay into a amber-tinted glass bottle and upon entering the bottle it began to multiply as if cloning itself. No longer was it one entity but rather many different entities, transforming into various shapes and forms.
Our trust in the Lord was alive and became whatever it needed to become, to transform into the answers to our prayers.
*** Amber colored bottles are used to protect the contents within the bottle. The amber color lessens the opportunity for the bottle's contents to be accessed from other outside sources such as harmful rays which can compromise the integrity, strength and effectiveness of the contents within.
