How easy is it for you to rest in the midst of chaos or deadlines? Not to worry or dwell on what is unfinished. Enjoying life regardless of outward circumstances.
I must admit. Lately I have been going to bed defeated. Berating myself for not accomplishing more. Being my own worse critic.
Last Monday I wrote about a dream I had. Until yesterday this dream nagged at my consciousness all week. Intuitively I knew something that had once been in God’s will in this past season of my life would no longer be acceptable in this new season.
Yesterday, I finally understood the dream. Excellence for this next season would be defined by IMMEDIATE obedience. No delays whatsoever. Interrupting my schedule on a moment’s notice. Relinquishing even more control to Him. Whether it is moving when He says move or staying put until He give me permission to move forward. The delayed obedience of the past is no longer acceptable.
I must allow the Lord to teach me how to
- hear His voice more clearly.
- immediately obey His instructions.
- live with my heart in the present, not the future.
- not allow outward circumstances to influence me or disrupt my sense of peace and contentment.
By doing this, I know I will have success both today and tomorrow because God does not lie. I believe Him when He tells me.
The instruction of his God is in his heart. His steps do not falter.
The wicked one lies in wait for the righteous and seeks to kill him. The Lord will not leave him in the power of the wicked one or allow him to be condemned when he is judged.
Wait for the Lord and keep His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land. You will watch when the wicked are destroyed.
I have seen a wicked, violent man well-rooted like a flourishing native tree. Then I passed by and noticed he was gone. I searched for him, but he could not be found.
Watch the blameless and observe the upright. For the man of peace will have a future. But transgressors will all be eliminated. The future of the wicked will be destroyed.
The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord, their refuge in a time of distress. The Lord helps and delivers them. He will deliver them from the wicked and will save them because they take refuge in Him.
Be a VOICE in the deafening sound of sameness!
