This has been a desert season; yet, I’ve learned that God often speaks clearly in the valley. Every time I neglect the simple yet profound truths of who God is, I choose to forget that God is on the throne, He is in control and that there are far greater things ahead than those that I leave behind.
Your life is the origin of new roads and new horizons and is the mouth of God’s love, God’s life, and God’s provision. Every day is a new opportunity for you to stand in awe and be amazed of what the Lord is doing in our nation. God sometimes may be silent but He is never absent.
We need to listen to the what God is saying (through His word and through prayer) before we run to the media to get the latest news story.
God’s intentions are always good intentions. He won’t give you just anything, he will give you the best and sometimes it is easy for you and I to forget that, because all we can think about is the door that didn’t open or that door that just closed on us when we really needed it.
Has it ever crossed your mind that sometimes what God deconstructs is just as important as what He develops. You go from glory to glory; you will NEVER walk in victory to end in defeat.
God didn’t choose you so you would fail. He chose you so that you would bear fruit, a fruit that would last. (John 15:8) God chose YOU and he didn’t make a mistake when He chose YOU. God is calling you to step into a new level of authority and anointing where it seems that others are better equipped. Nonetheless, rest in the fact that when you feel inadequate or insecure, God has selected you to do what He has called you to.
Our daily challenge is to synchronize our faith with God’s schedule. Destiny is not a drive thru, where you can order _____________ and expect to receive it five minutes later. I have learned that everything God will reveal in your life will be done in stages. In the bible, our ability to exercise our faith is illustrated by sowing seeds and reaping a harvest in due time.
Before you sow a seed, you need to plow the ground first to make sure that the soil is ready for the scattering stage. With time as you continue to take care of the seed, the sprouting stage will take place and you will be ready to harvest the grain. I know what you must be thinking, “Ok Dani, enough with all this agricultural talk. How can I apply this principle to my own life”?
The real question is: How do you relate with impatience when God’s schedule is not synchronized with yours?
The voices you believe will determine the future you experience. Let your life’s navigation system be led by the spirit and not by your senses. You walk by faith and not by sight. God will warn you but He will never create worry within you. Don’t be focus on your storm; focus on the future God has promised you. Your faith is powered by your focus.
When you are called to venture out to uncharted waters, it can be difficult to take the first steps towards a new discovery, often an unknown one. Confidently walk and construct the dream that God has placed on the inside of you. Go along using the resources that God provides for you and don’t dwell on what you don’t know or what you don’t have. Nothing can open the door to your bright future like a personal revelation of Jesus’ lordship over your life. Step into something new believing that God will keep His promises and will provide the resources to realize the possibility for greatness in your life.
Sometimes it is hard to walk away from what seems perfect at the moment and what seems aligned with the present season of your life. However, there are certain things God is calling us to let go in order to move forward with what we are believing in faith for. Doing the right thing and being obedient to God allows you to move through the process faster and more aware of what is to come.
