We serve an omnibenevolent God, whom through all of our unfaithful and inexcusable disobediences; He remains faithful and forgiving. Regardless of how we live for Him or fail to live for him – He is immutable.
When I am disobedient to God and fall prey to temptations, such a business and irritability, His great love brings condemnation to my feet. I am convicted by His word and through Him alone I lace up my shoes and get back on track.
There is no greater love than that you find when you are obedient to our omnipotent God. Regardless of the magnitude of your obedience it is through His faithfulness we find amazing love. By magnitude, I mean whether it seems trifling or vast it is all obedience in the eyes of our Holy God.
Things do not always work out like you want them to, but God knows exactly what you need and how you need it. You may pray for a house and receive one that is a hundred years old, but you do not need a new house – you just need a home. Praise God for providing a roof over your head, Amen.
It is hard to be patient and obedient sometimes, but God’s word is worth far more than silver or gold (Psalms 119:72). When God relocated me to Texas it was there that I truly found Him and learned what it meant to love Him. I could raise my right hand to tell you that I do not think I would be a God loving woman without relying on Him the way I did when I lived there. You would think that I moved there with everything I needed, but I moved there on a one-way airline ticket, two suitcases, and an eight month old baby, unemployed and homeless.
After several years of God working on my heart and providing my every need; He moved me back to Florida. I never wanted to move back to Florida because it never felt like home –an odd testimony form a native Floridian. Now, don’t think that I went with open arms back to Florida because I surely did not. God had to put the smack down on my hind end and then I proceeded to be obedient.
By this time, I was a Christian Ministry major in college and with God’s loving, yet disciplinary hand, had a successful job.
Within the first six months I resided in Florida God blessed me with a man whom I now call my husband. Obedience had continuously led me to amazing blessings. God knew exactly where he was taking me and through faith I listened; tears and all. I cannot see what is in store for my life, but God said He would build my foundation and He has not failed to continue chipping, grinding and forming my heart.
If you try to guide your own life, you will indubitably fail, but have faith in an Almighty Creator and you can move mountains. If you had faith the size of a mustard seed you could say to this mountain, ‘move from here to there.’ and it will obey you, Matthew 17:20.
God has transitioned my life again and I now reside in Wyoming with my husband and two beautiful boys. We received everything we asked for in abundance and I look forward to the glory we bring to God in our new home.
Isaiah 40:31, those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, and they will walk and not be faint.
