God has seen me through a lot of hardships in my life. In the midst of the challenges, I cried out to God one night and prayed the simplest prayer, “Lord I need you and I need you in every single area of my life”. I repeated this over and over again and felt the Holy Spirit come into my life immediately. Ever since then, my life has been changed and restored. God has used the past and present circumstances to prepare me for a great calling. Unfortunately, the path that takes us to our promise is always wrought with thickets and thorns. Nothing worth having ever comes easy or without opposition. Storms will come, lions will roar, and our fears will be confronted. But God sees us through all these difficulties and shapes us with them for the better.
“God’s timing is PERFECT” is more than a cliché – it’s an assurance to the revelation of God’s divinely orchestrated life for those who yield themselves to Him. In the early days of my walk with Christ, I used to wallow in the thought that the above statement was nothing more than a motto. A motto for pressing through today to see tomorrow.
Do you feel like you are searching and continually seeking God but you’re failing to find Him? You believe you seek God ‘hard’ in prayer, fasting, and church attendance but He doesn’t seem to reveal Himself to you? You don’t understand the problem. You don’t get all this fire, anointing, and heavenly experience only a few people seem to be privileged enough to experience. I can relate. I totally understand you. However, I must admit the problem is you and not God.
During these past few festive weeks, I have been meditating on the motivation of God for the sweet sacrifice He made for humanity. The bottomless depths of God’s INFINITE LOVE and DESIRE for an intimacy with His creation was what motivated Him to give up what was SO DEAR to Him. He believed the PRICE was worth paying for a return of an eternal relationship with His people.
TO EVERY SEASON, THERE IS A REASON.
“My people die of a lack of knowledge.” – Hosea 4:6
Indeed! I was dead to the truth I am about to share with you for over five years, all due to a lack of knowledge. My heart breaks seeing many ladies today who ‘proclaim’ to be Christians but seem to have lost sense of their ‘worth’. They have separated their spiritual lives from their love life.
