Waiting On Your Blessings

Right now God has me a place where I'm awaiting Him for some specific blessings. This has been such a trying time for me. I can't really go into detail of what specifically I'm waiting on, but when God finally manifests this thing I'll be sure to fill you guys in. :) Anyways, back to me. ( haha ) This trial has been the longest and toughest one I've ever been through. I've witnessed some awesome things firsthand that God has done in my life and others. I know that He is more than able! This is nothing for Him to bring to pass. But during this waiting period I've heard some doubtful comments about my situation "are you sure God said that?" "maybe that isn't the case now and you should get in prayer to find out what He wants for you now.." and so on and so forth. And I can't lie. There were times I doubted I was hearing correctly also. Though I've had countless confirmations ranging from dreams, visions, to prophetic words - this is a unique situation that has TESTED my faith in God unlike anything else. Just like with any test, there's pressure. I think it's in our nature to avoid that pressure also. It's when we stick with the test and lesson at hand that God is truly able to grow us. In situations like this we have to understand that NOT everyone is going to understand what God is doing in our individual lives. This helps us in maintaining and building our faith in God but also helps us to not hold grudges and forgive those that don't understand. Throughout this experience God has shown me the things I need work on and ways I was holding back my own progress. In this instance it's pushed me to get closer to God by spending more time with Him through the word, prayer, fasting, praise and worship. I needed to get closer to Him to make sure I was hearing right and in essence, going in the right direction. With this particular trial I've learned it's important to walk circumspectly and ask God to show me my own faults so that I may reach as much growth as possible through the trial. So though this situation has been less than desirable, I am so appreciative for this opportunity to grow and get a few steps closer to who God has called me to be. :) I encourage you all to keep pressing forth with the vision and plan God has given you. This isn't a time for anyone to second guess themselves or ASSUME God said anything, so if anything increase the time you spend with God. We have to know that we know that we know. Then we have to be faithful with that by speaking blessings and life over the situation and acts of faith in alignment with that. Remember to keep those close to you that DO understand and support you.Things like that may seem insignificant but they make such a difference. Be encouraged everyone, and know you're not alone in your pursuit of God's best.

P.S. I cannot wait to share the full testimony when it's fully played out later. :)

  • "My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," says the LORD. "And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine." - Isaiah 55:8 (NLT)
  • See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, - Ephesians 5:15 (KJV)

  1. I too have gone through much lately while waiting on blessings. God rewards those who stay faithful through testing times. James 1:12. For me, my blessing is the restoration of my life and family after destroying my life with drugs. God works on his own time, not ours. Live right. Put him first. You'll have everything you need. Matthew 6:33. I believe in you sister.
