We miss what God is doing around us because of focusing on situations before us. God always provides grace for us to pass through the storms but how we look at the situations is the problem not the situation itself. 2 Corinthians 12:9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
God’s promise, does not mean there won’t be thorns. He is there with us but sometimes, we need to walk on our own. Acts 12:10 When they were past the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and went down one street, and immediately the angel departed from him.
The angel only walked with Peter in the necessary area and left him to move on his own.
There are things we do, things that we did not plan to do but we do it because of the weakness that is in us. By the grace, we are still able to find favor in Christ Jesus. Christianity become stressful when we witness this weakness and think we can come out from it on our own will. We try so hard to change and end up condemning ourself. Know that Christ know the your deep thoughts, your intentions when you do things. Hebrews 4:15 This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.
We can only achieve righteousness through Christ. Let us fix our eyes on the cross. Hebrews 4:16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
Genesis 37:26-27 Judah said to his brothers, “What will we gain by killing our brother? We’d have to cover up the crime. Instead of hurting him, let’s sell him to those Ishmaelite traders. After all, he is our brother-our own flesh and blood!” And his brothers agreed.
When you focus on the situation, you miss the grace that God has provided. Satan’s plan is for you to curse God but know that God won’t expose you to a situation you cannot handle. 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
Leave your life as if everything is a miracle. Miracles are God’s way of letting us know that he is there with us.
God gives us grace and helps us give it to others. We all want God’s forgiveness even when we know we don’t deserve it.Romans 3:23-24 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.
Don’t let the devil still your joy.
Not anything that shines is a diamond. After prophecy, you must be spiritual mature to see the end else you’ll abort. After prayer, the devil will bring opportunities that seems to go in line with what you are asking for, allow the Spirit to guide yo in decision making.
1 Samuel 26:8 Then Abishai said to David, “God has delivered your enemy into your hand this day. Now therefore, please, let me strike him at once with the spear, right to the earth; and I will not have to strike him a second time!”
David had an opportunity to strike Saul but obeyed the Spirit In his decision. 1 Samuel 26:11 The LORD forbid that I should stretch out my hand against the LORD’s anointed. But please, take now the spear and the jug of water that are by his head, and let us go.”
You can move from a place of grace because of the immediate situations that are before you. The devil want to isolate you so he can deal will you when you no longer have coverage.
God saw it fit that I be called one of his own. 1 Timothy 1:16 But God had mercy on me so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime example of his great patience with even the worst sinners. Then others will realize that they, too, can believe in him and receive eternal life. People who know me from my past life still don’t believe that i am attending church and was attending bible school. God uses stupid things to achieve great things.
