Hey people how y’all doing?
It feels great to be able to hit you up with another post, I’m also glad to announce that Christian Lady After Gods Own Heart, has been up and running (not running as perfectly as I’d like), for 3 years!!! Woop woop, can I get an Amen and a Hallelujah. And I have to say that it has got a lot to do with you guys my followers/readers/those who just like to pree! Thank you SOOOO much, I do pray that God will bless you with an unusual level of peace.
So swiftly moving forward, I just wanted to share a couple things with you all today, which I believe God has been speaking to me about. The first thing is to be CONFIDENT in the Lord. Be confident in His timings, be confident in how and why He does things. Don’t allow anxiety to rule over your life. I know the concept of allowing someone else take total control of your life is scary, especially when we live in a society which encourages living an independent life, but trust me when I say this, Gods got your back 😄. So stop trying to do it all by yourself, and have faith in the Lords qualities and abilities.
Secondly I’d like to share two scriptures with you, which have really fascinated me! The first Psalm 62:5 (My soul waits for the Lord in silence, for my expectation is from Him) & the second Lamentations 3:26 (It is good that a man should hope and quietly wait for the salvation of Jehovah). The words which caught my attention from these two verses, was the word quiet! Like what does it mean to be quiet? How do you quietly wait before the Lord? Then it hit me, even though I profess with my mouth that I trust God to take care of the situations which take place in my life, my mind is still cluttered with thoughts/plans of how I am going to make things work out. I am constantly scheming! This is far from quiet. I believe being quiet is a mindset thing.
Over the years I have realised that one of the things I find difficult to do, is to be quiet before the presence of God, I always feel like there is a need for talking/noise. But what we must realise is that in life, sometimes God requires us to be still. Being quiet can be a way in which we show God that we trust in Him completely, it’s a great way in which we can learn to exercise our faith. Being quiet also decreases the chances of us complaining, because in life there will be times where we will have to wait for breakthrough. During that waiting period we ought to wait quietly with a thankful heart and avoid complaining altogether!
Finally I believe that it is necessary to be quiet at times in order for our minds to focus on the sovereignty and power of God! When we focus our minds on God fear is removed and stripped away. Fear can have no room when we are in the presence of God who blesses our minds with a peace which surpasses all human understanding. So run with the truth that it is good to be silent at times, it is natural for us to be lost for words because of Gods awesomeness and holiness (Habakkuk 2:20 ‘But Jehovah is in His holy temple, let all the earth keep silent before Him’).
Beautiful ladies do not allow fear to govern your day, be confident in the God you serve, and learn to quiet your mind with the peace of the Lord.
The godly lady sends love to all her sisters reading this post.
