Trusting God

Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.”

This verse is my favorite verse. When things in life do not go as the way you planned it out to be, trust God. You will run into delays, and situations will arise to get you off course but understand that you should not go outside of God to fix the issue. When God is still, he is not silent. Just because you cannot hear him yet does not mean he is not there. God is always there. Obey God as you wait.

What is God doing as you wait? There are two things that he is doing,

1) God is doing something bigger than you

2) God is testing you in order to take you deeper

There are times in life where you get tired of waiting and you want whatever it is that you asked for right away but God wants you to be prepared in order for you to receive that blessing. God wants to take you deeper first on the inside that’s why you are running into delays. A great friend of mine has said,

                    “When you pursue God’s dream for your life, you’re going to run into delays. God uses those waiting periods to prepare and test you so that you can face whatever is coming in the next phase of your faith.”

See when you trust God you should not have to worry about what tomorrow holds because God knows exactly what you need. Prepare yourself as you wait, that is the key. Trust God and his timing.

Proverbs 3:5

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”

God  wants you to trust in him and wait on him. There’s nothing more overwhelming when God shows up and shows out when the time is right. He makes the impossible becomes possible. When you leave your situation in Gods hands believe that he will take care of the rest.

” Start looking at your situation through your revelation.”

-Sylvester Knight

When you still have God you have not lost everything.

 

Every Life

Every life has a story. The only way you can understand someone story is by walking in their shoes.

Have you ever met someone that told you what he or she has gone through or is going through? In your mind you’re thinking about your life. Wondering if you would have the strength to live their’s. As you hear their story, you can see the emotions on their face and feel as if you are experiencing their heartache.

Every life story can impact anyone. Imagine someone or you complaining about everything whether about their job, family, school, and etc….. and you met someone who has no job, no family, basically nothing that you have. You hear their life story and now you start to think about your life but the thing is God let you met people for a reason. Sometimes you may think that you don’t belong in someone’s but the truth is you don’t really know.

You don’t really know what impact that you have on that person life without even stepping up to plate. You don’t know what you’re capable of doing until you actually do it. People come and go but for a reason. Every life story is not the same, of course there will be some people that you meet that went through the same struggles as you but it’s  your story. There will be a day when you understand why that person is there. You may not understand why but eventually you will know.
