Oftentimes we imagine that God is distant, and that all he really cares about is us doing right by him. But that could not be further from the truth. God wants your heart and all of you. God longs to love on you and cover you in his glory. He wants to spoil you with his never ending, unfailing love, something we often long for from humans, but that no man on earth can truly give us.
The time of isolation can be a great blessing if well utilized. An average 21first century man is a workaholic! It is a day of increasing emphasis on doing more with our lives. We wake up daily with loads of schedules for the day, weeks, and months. Hardly do we have time for self-development and capacity building.
Why does God speak to us like we are already more then we see or relate to us as if we can understand? We may feel and only be able to physically see one thing but still be in the process of becoming what and who God says we are. Beyond what we can see with our limited physical eyes is a reality seen by our creator. He calls us what He sees and thankfully, He sees us through the finished work of the cross. Abraham isn't credited as the Father of our Faith because of anything He did. He didn't get God's attention by living like a saint. We call him 'father' because God made something out of Abraham when he was a nobody.
As I continue to prepare to enter into new seasons, it reminds me of the transitions that we go through in our personal lives. Most of the times when a transition occurs, either we are digging deeper into our current season or about to transition into a new one. In these moments I have to evaluate if I am truly prepared! With only 47 days left in 2019, I will take it a step further and ask you to evaluate if you are well equipped to either digger deeper or transition?
With all that is going on around us, it seems almost impossible to not let it affect what’s going on within us at times, but hold tight to truth. Feelings are fickle, your heart can steer you in the wrong direction, and emotions are neither right or wrong.
Therefore, do not be moved what you see and hear. Do not be moved by what other people say and think. Do not be moved by your fears, insecurities, and emotions. Be moved by your promise, purpose, and passions. Be moved by the confirmations sent to you. Be moved by what the Word says. Be moved by your faith.
