May God find my heart faithful!
Having faith and steadfast faith at that can be tough at times. Well it is fo me atleast I will say.
Life comes and it delivers a blow that seems to knock you off course. Then after the initial impact subsides you find your self far off course and having to work your way back.
I do think for me this is why God wants me firmly anchored in Hin better. As well as, being trained in being more prudent as a woman of God.
Pastor Juanita Gibbs has lovingly taken me under wing to help develop my prudence and develop me as a woman of God in the faith. Believe me it has been much needed in my life.
She teaches us that our words reflect what is in our hearts. My heart for far too long has been full of doubt, negativity, unbelief, worry, anxiety to the point that my words created the world I want now to break free from.
That can only happen by changing my thoughts to effect my heart so that my words can create a new and better life for me.
“You found his heart faithful before You, And made a covenant with him To give him the land of the Canaanite, Of the Hittite and the Amorite, Of the Perizzite, the Jebusite and the Girgashite- To give it to his descendants. And You have fulfilled Your promise, For You are righteous. Nehemiah 9:8 NASB
By working on changing my heart condtion by changing how I think and thus what comes from my mouth can then be found within me a heart of faith. Having a heart of faith is what pleases God and opens the door for God to fulfill His promises.
It takes work going from a Heart of Unbelief to a Heart of Faith. Its been a slow progression but God has shown Himself mighty in my life. For that and all He has done, is doing, and about to do in my life I am thankful for God and His unconditional love, mercy and grace unto me.
He will fulfill every word spoken for it went out for a set purpose and it will accomplish what it will and not return void. In between seed time and harvest time is the time for me to grow my faith, develop in fruit, and grow in prudence.
