From Mess to Miracle
Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together for good, for we are His lovers who have been called to fulfill His designed purpose.
God is not moved by our griping and complaining about our life or our circumstance. As a matter of fact it greatly displeases Him. Let's face it, we all know people who are continually complaining. Even when God, by His mercy and love sends them a blessing, they are happy for about a minute, then find something else to gripe about or maybe even complain about the blessing! Are they living the victorious life God intended for them? They are actually cursing their own destiny by planting seeds of negativity. I'm not saying God is not moved by our tears and broken heart. If we cry out to Him in faith in the midst of our pain, He will move powerfully on our behalf, but we must know His Word and trust that He will do what He's promised!
Let me simplify faith for you, it's simply believing that the one who created you, loves and provides for you, is greater than your problems and needs. He desires to take care of His children, provided everything we need for a life of victory on the cross and He never lies. If He promised it He will do it!! It's simple trust in the Word of God and having such an intimate relationship with Him that you KNOW He will never let you down. We must live a life of worship and thankfulness for all He's done and all He's doing and believing that even in the hard times, He will work it all out for our good! As you stop worrying and start trusting, you will see change activated!
Begin to actually believe that He is in control and He WILL work it all out for your good while He’s using your circumstances for His purpose and glory! Worship Him through the storm and get ready for Him to turn your mess into a miracle! Hebrews 11:6 (TPT) And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God. For we come to God in faith knowing that he is real and that he rewards the faith of those who passionately seek Him. Matthew 15:18 (NLT) But the words you speak come from the heart—that’s what defiles you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (TPT) Let joy be your continual feast. Make your life a prayer. And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 (TPT) Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ. Psalm 16:8 (KJV) I have set the Lord always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 1 Corinthians 10:10-12 (NLT) And don’t grumble as some of them did, and then were destroyed by the angel of death. These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age. If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall.
