Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
I decided to write in light of a conversation I had with the Father less than an hour ago. I was in prayer, praying for change in my personal life when the Lord spoke to me. He said “Stop praying for Change- Change has come. Release has come. Breakthrough has come. Love has come. Will you embrace it?” I said yes and as an act of faith, opened my arms to embrace what was being given to me. Sometimes, I think we can be so caught up in the act of praying for something that when it arrives, we cease to recognize it. Praying for others and yourself is awesome, but when God answers that prayer (though you may not see it physically)- it’s time to thank Him for what’s He’s done and pray for something else. I’ve been praying for things for years, but because I haven’t embraced what was in front of me, I didn’t experience what God was doing. Instead, I became increasingly frustrated and allowed the idea that God wasn’t hearing me to affect the way I prayed. If you don’t believe God is going to answer your prayers, why pray in the first place? if you don’t believe God can hear you, why spend time talking? When you don’t embrace what’s been given to you, you’ll think God disappointed you and that has a negative effect on your prayers. Your prayers begin to be full of doubt and unbelief, whereas God only operates in faith. So for you who have been like me, praying for change. Stop. Change has come, change is here! Will you embrace it?
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:19)
Until next time,
