Promises & Answers

Revel for a moment with me in God’s goodness.

Can you go there?

Will you go there?

God has promised to provide my every NEED.

He will show HIMself strong when I am made weak.

My Lord is actively in the process of orchestrating every detail of life as it needs to be…RIGHT NOW!

Did you catch that?

I know I don’t much.

However, I also know that my sight is so short,

so dim,

so fogged over,

so caught up with what shade lenses I have in front of them at the moment

that I lose all God-vision.

And that brings me to a place where I buy into lies.

I doubt God’s promises and question my identity in Him.

I fail to carry out any form of effective ministry.

I produce nothing but sin.

It is in those moments that I choose to make mySELF so big and my God so small.

Glorifying my image is the goal vs. allowing mySELF to be used by Him to demonstrate HIMself.

Why am I so amazed that when I simply discipline mySELF, God grants me the wisdom and truth He has already promised to give me?

Because I make it all about ME.

“But if any of you lacks wisdom,let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”

-James 1:5 NASB
