His love chases me!
As I continue to delve into the faith more and with the program that my Pastor has put together to detox from negativity I am finding myself more and more entralled in the arms of the word.
So much so that its captivating and becoming more and more alive. After hours of prayer, worship and meditation God lead me to search for in his word “just believe” and in my findings I was lead to a section of the word.
But at looking at the verse that jumped out in my selection I wasn’t seeing what I needed to see ot there was no revelation rather from that one verse. So, I took a step back and read the entire chapter to see the full scope of the verse.
Little did I realize that by the time I finished getting the imagery from what I was reading I had read two Chapters and honestly I am floored at what I was shown in those two chapters.
But to remain in topic I will stick with what I was shown about faith in what I read.
For the Scripture says, ” whoever believes in him will not be disappointed .”
Faith as my pastor tells me in councel is being fully convinced/persuaded that what God says He will do. It taoes patience, faith and self work to see things manifest, as well as, giving.
As I blogged yesterday my persuasion was that of conflict between myself (my soul) and the spirit of God. I have been tossed for a long time between faith and doubt.
What has that manifested in my life?
God will not bless nothing that isn’t fully alive with faith in Him. So, since my Pastor the lovely Juanita Gibbs has given me a few verses that I have now taken and prayed and meditate on daily to take them deeper within my being.
So that the more I believe on Him he will move and come through for me, but it is only by my belief in what He said he would do. Its having a God expectation not in mere humanity (as I have in the past) that He won’t disappoint me that all things work together for the good.
I want the word to become my new nature as she teaches us. That the more I take off my old nature the new nature can be worn. The new nature is full of fruit, glory, blessings, gifts, talents, abilities etc that my old nature has said no give up thats impossible. To combat that is to say what is impossible with man is possible with God.
My faith has had to become my shield the more to protect the darts my soul can dish out like no one’s business as that negativity is so part of who I have been til now its being touched amd pulled up and out. And believe me ot needs to come up and out.
The more I allow His love to flood my soul the more faith pursues me to want to deepen my relationship wiyh God just for who He is. A loving Abba Father who knows whats best, who is the author of my faith, who supplies my needs, who will not disappoint me and do all he has said He would for all things have an appointed time and season and now is the season of growth and maturation that is surely needed.
God is Good and Faithful!
