Posted on 10/09/2013 4:04:29 PM PDT by Vision
But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. Acts 20:24, NKJV.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
God is a faithful God! You may be praying for things that havent happened yet, but just because things arent happening on your timetable doesnt mean they arent going to happen. Dont give up on that promise; God has the final say. Dont let discouragement or negative thoughts talk you out of it. Get your fire back! Get your passion back. If God said it, He will do it. If God spoke it, He will bring it to pass.
This is what the apostle Paul did in scripture. He said, None of these things move me. What were these things? Circumstances that looked impossible. Persecution. People trying to talk him out of it. Negative, discouraging thoughts. His attitude was, That doesnt change my mind. Im not moved by what I see. Im moved by what I know, and I know if God be for me, who dare be against me? I know all of Gods promises are yes and amen. I know God has the final say!
A Prayer for Today
Father, I choose to trust You over trusting my circumstances, knowing that You are faithful. I choose to stand strong in You. Give me Your peace and joy as I wait on You and let me be a testimony of Your grace in Jesus name. Amen.
