It won’t always feel good to serve God, but everything works out for your good! That’s a promise from God Himself!
God’s vision of our situation isn’t clouded by emotions, doubt or fear. God is the only one that sees our situation clearly!
“The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it? (Jeremiah 17:9 NASB)
Trusting our heart is equivalent to trusting our hurt. Our heart as stated in the scripture above is deceptive. We must remember that God is not the only one seeking to fulfill the desires of our heart, so is satan. That thing you may desire above all else that seems to be an answer to your prayers may just be another form of distraction. We have to remain in the presence of God and remain vigilant to realize the plans of the enemy. As it pertains to relationships let me give you a scenario:
You ended your relationship because you felt It wasn’t healthy and you turn to God. Now your ex comes around and seems to have changed to much and you’re sure until somewhere down the line things are even worse than before.
Don’t let the enemy use your heart against you and don’t let your heart speak louder than the spirit of God. If a situation isn’t scripturally aligned, it’s not of God… Simple as that. God will not warn you against being unequally yoked and then connect you with someone that’s going to disconnect you from Him!
Believe the promises He has spoken to you. Believe that it is worth waiting on Him for the true purpose of your life and your relationships to unfold. Believe that following God’s plan is much more fulfilling than following out heart!
There’s no challenge today, as most of us are still on the 24 hour fast from social media. Just continue pouring out your heart to God so He can fill you with His spirit!
Live a little, love a lot, be a blessing!
