Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
God must not be moving. That is the thought that runs through our minds when we see all of the chaos and confusion around us. God must not be moving. How could He be moving in the midst of this? Plus, I don’t see Him. I don’t see Him moving. Good thing, faith is not dependent upon our eyesight. Faith is dependent on our trust and belief in God.
For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV
Chaos. Complete disorder and confusion. That is what I am seeing in my life right now, a juxtaposition being that I am also free- falling in the Will of God. It’s crazy that in the midst of my obedience to God in expectation of the promise, all I see is confusion and chaos. My current situation shows the promise being impossible. My life is set up in impossibility- the perfect environment for the presence of God.
Jesus looked upon them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 KJV
Maybe this is where I need to be, maybe this is where the Lord was leading me- into the place of impossibility so that His glory can be revealed on a greater level. God does His best work in the land of impossible and reveals Himself the best in the area of nothingness. And maybe, just maybe…He was waiting for me to be void so that he can create something to fill the void forever.
The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Genesis 1:2 ESV
The beauty of God is that when we think He is not moving, those are the moments that He actually is- being Spirit moving His invisible hands. Naked to the human eye but tangible to His spoken Word. He is not only moving; but he is watching, orchestrating, rebuilding and working on bringing His promises concerning us to pass. God is moving, and just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean movement is not happening. I’m reminded of the air we breath, though naked to our physical eyes- we witness it’s power within us each and every day. If for a moment we forget to breathe, our lives could be cut short from lack of oxygen in our lungs. We need air to be alive, yet we will never touch an air particle in our lifetime. We need something that is not tangible, that holds no form or shape. Isn’t it crazy how God’s word is sort of the same, intangible to our fingertips yet necessary for our being to function (including our fingertips). We need His Word and His Word is moving to make us into who He desires for us to be.
So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11 ESV
God is moving. We just cannot see it. And to tell you the truth, that’s okay because our sight does not hinder His movement. I want to encourage you guys tonight to let you know that there is still hope in what is to come. There is still hope. Trust in the hand of the Lord, though invisible to you; vital to your well being. I hope each of you have a great night!
Until next time,
And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord. Luke 1:45 ESV
