When you don’t feel God, remember that your walk with him is much more than a few emotional goosebumps. In fact, He’s most verified in your everyday, seemingly little, acts of obedience. He’s glorified in your day to day service, the dedication of your work, the love and honor you show to those around you and the way you live your life as His example – the invisible moments of your life that no one sees. You abiding in God & Him abiding in you is not measured by your emotional response. It’s measured by your application – the fruit of your every day choices, in your attitude, in your dedication to stay on the course.
Sometimes, it seems pointless or hard to keep spending time with God or praying when you don’t “feel” Him but I promise you He’s there. Keep going. Keep pushing. Keep Praying!
I’m sitting here reflecting back over the month of May and all that I’ve learned during the time it was here and the one thing I can say is.. I’ve learned to trust God more! God doesn’t always move when “I want” Him to move. Sometimes, my patience personally gets a work-out when I pray and ask Him for something and He doesn’t answer. Have you ever had that happen to you? Like you pray and ask God for something and His answer is literally no answer. He doesn’t say yes, He doesn’t say no, He doesn’t maybe.. He doesn’t say anything!! He doesn’t even give you a hint, no immediate signs.. you just have to trust the fact that He heard you and is working on your behalf! I’m not going to lie, I hate those moments lol but I’ve also learned to appreciate the opportunity to work on waiting & trusting Him too! One thing about God, you are NOT going to rush Him so while you’re waiting, you may as well learn to wait well !!
As a result of me constantly praying this month and waiting on God, the opportunity to get back into healthcare has presented itself and I am SO happy!! Working in an office has been an experience for the books but I’m more excited now about going back to doing something I am absolutely phenomenal at and have a big heart for. Nursing. There are benefits in waiting on God. He may not come when you want him but He’ll always be there RIGHT ON TIME!
I just wanted to take the time to encourage someone in the fact that when God is for you, it doesn’t matter who is against you! Rest in Him. Delays are not denial. Waiting is not wasting. Though the vision tarries, it shall truly come to past! KEEP MOVING! KEEP PRAYING. KEEP BELIEVING GOD FOR THAT THING YOU ASKED HIM FOR. Don’t let circumstances make you doubt what God told you! No matter what it looks like and regardless of what it feels like .. you keep fighting the good fight of faith and trust the fact that God is moving and turning things in YOUR favor!
The presence of a battle does not mean the absence of God in the war! I’m just saying .. it doesn’t matter what people may try to do to stop those doors from opening for you. What God has for you will always be for you. Don’t ever forget that. You don’t ever have to worry about anybody getting in the way of your blessing because believe me .. when God’s ready for you to have it .. He will make sure He gets it to YOU!!
