Over the pass couple of days, Gods voice roared like a thunder (literal in every sense, as the rains been heavy where I live). He’s instructed me in areas of my life where I have been failing. And I’ve got to say, I have never been more thirsty for Gods word, then now. The pages of the bible have been turning, reading scriptures, and talking to God. So here is what He’s taught me. (Plus, He asked that I share this with you as well).
“The one who follows instructions is on the path to life.” Proverbs 10:17 (AMP)
Before I get to the verse, here’s a bit of backstory. When I gave my life to God this year, He changed a lot of things inside me. God reorganize my schedule and told me, absolutely, He comes first before anything and anyone. God instructions were, I would pray, meditate, and journal every morning (before I start the day) & night (before my eyes closed). Secondly, God says your health is vital, for your body belongs to me. He adjusted my eating habits and I joined a gym. I attend every single day, accept Sunday because I serve in church. Lastly, God instructed me to go to bed early, because He needs to talk through my dreams and I need to be well-rested to take on the purpose he has designed for me. In addition, God had other disciplines he wanted me to fulfill. God, noted if any of these things were violated, it would cause me to fall off course.
“People who accept discipline are on the pathway to life, but those who ignore correction will go astray.” Proverbs 10:17 (NLT)
Well, it happened. And so the Father was not pleased with what I did. The conviction fell heavy on my heart. I had to get on my knees and confess the disobedience. There was an idol and problem that began plaguing my mind. Distraction, anxiety, and doubts flooded my mind. Losing sleep, body aches, and slowly returning to old habits. Anyway, God was not too pleased. This past week, God sat me down for a talk.
He said, “I’m going to remove the distraction, because it has lead your faith astray. You are my daughter. You are a Child of God. I have so much in store for you. I need you to focus on me. My LOVE is sufficient.”
“Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart, And do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And he will make you’re paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].” (AMP)
We’ll if this isn’t proof enough of how God loves on his children, then you don’t know love. The Father knows what is best for us and we are not forgotten. God understood my pain, my vision was blurry, I’d fallen on deaf ears, and my thoughts were clouded. When God sets his sights on us, he does not want anyone coming in between to disrupt the works He’s doing inside of us. God, really doesn’t want anything separating us from His Love. I cannot thank God for His love, deeply. I mean, as I’m typing this, tears 😭 are streaming down my cheeks, I’m so very much in love with God.
I have made many mistakes in the past, many along this journey, BUT GOD forgave me. He has not only pour His love all over me, but God has me surrounded with a hedge of protection (Psalm 91). I mean, I cry out and thank Him for always being there for me. 🙌🏼 Those tears don’t go unnoticed. Every disadvantage, God uses as an advantaged. God takes our scars and turn them into stars. God heals the wounds and fills the empty places of my heart with His love. God makes the crooked places straight. When I came out of the darkness, Gods embrace never left me, the light never dimmed. His love is pure and so real. I know, that I know He will never fail me. Time may push against me, but Gods timing is always right. Which is why He’s working on my patience. Gods has placed a hunger within, for I desire to dive further into the scriptures. There are things I have yet to learned. God has more to show me. And I can’t wait to see more of Him. This is the intimacy of God.
I will wait for you, Cause all I want is you God!
