“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”–Philipians 1:6
I had two outbursts.
I was challenged to act like I have in the past and I chose the latter.
I was so disappointed.
And yet, I know that The Lord was encouraging me to not linger on the sin.
But rather trust Him.
“Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.” Romans 8:18, NLT
Even if I feel like I can’t do this anymore. I’ll trust You. Even if I’m tempted to sulk and bury myself in grief. Mourning sin or what should have happened won’t change anything. Rather it will exacerbate everything.
So maybe the Lord is also testing my response to my sin. If I’ll run closer to Him? Or will I run further away from Him and people? Will I turn my back on life and try to excuse it by my own.
“You won’t respond in the flesh,
If you let me fill you all the way to overflowing.”–The Holy Spirit
Yet I know. Though it’s hard to accept. That this place I’m in is far more important than I realize. This place which I feel is so close to being over can not flow fulfilled till I am fulfilled in You. I’m so ready for situations to change. But yet, I’m still finishing it. Still learning how to be content in it. Still holding on preciously to the knowledge of my Savior even if my life looks incomplete. I sit here. I wait here. Gritting my teeth. Hoping that God delivers me. And hold my breath with praise wrapped up within me.
So that I can sing boldly,
Unashamedly that I was brave enough to smile.
Laugh and even when I did not want to,
For His Glory.
And all witnessing this decree. Type amen!
I pray your people experience power from Your Spirit more than ever before. Equipping them to walk out faithfully what you have given them. Let them prosper in all they do.
And let your perfect will be done.
In Jesus Name, I pray with you all.
