Life with Jesus includes stepping out into the great unknown and trusting, and God wants to equip you for that journey. Don’t be afraid of drowning when you are living by faith. Your heart will take you where your head can’t fit.
Your perception and interpretation dictates the outcome of the situation. It doesn’t matter nearly as much where the pressure comes from as it does what you do with it, which will determine what it produces in your life.
What is happening around you is really what God is doing in you.
Only God can show you how to convert the pressure into something glorious. You may have been here before and what you are facing seems far more difficult than the past but you and I serve a faithful and never changing God who is able to deliver is from anything.
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?
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.
Patience is not a feeling; it is a daily decision. When you have the ability to endure resistance and/or you stay in the fire, you are exhibiting patience. This is definitely easier said than done and in order to confidently walk in patience, you need to prepare.
Sometimes the decisions that you make, don’t make sense because they are based on your faith in Christ (AKA the evidence of things hoped for AKA the unseen). However, there is one thing you can be sure of: When you work for God, He works in you and through you and GREATER things shall you do. Don’t stray away when things get difficult or when they don’t come out as planned, T R U S T. The value (how much it worth to you) that you place on what God has for you is proven and manifested by what you are willing to walk away from the follow Him.
