Faith || Trusting God’s Ways: Believing God is Good Even When We Don’t Get What We Want

There are things I’ve desperately asked God for this year and I didn’t get them, not because of my lack of faith but for work of patience and trust.

I remember a particular month when all my prayers were just ‘Lord, please give me a miracle!’ 

But I only got the miracle of learning delayed gratification, a miracle of knowing the goodness of God even when what I wanted wasn’t granted. 

Moreover, we can only pray, we cannot tell God when and how He chooses to answer our prayers.

Our walk with God is a walk of faith! And faith breeds patience and hope and strength!

The truth is, I felt very bad, I was disappointed and I grieved but I learnt to accept God’s ways knowing that His ways are designed as much for my good as they are for His glory!

Sometimes, God takes us through the longer route so we can learn to trust Him through the process. He develops us through this process that transforms us, I guess perhaps, I wasn’t ready for that blessing I was asking for so God needed to begin some work in me. Glad I’m yielding!

I said all of that to say this, whatever season you’re going through, learn the lessons the Lord is teaching you, receive it with an open heart. He’s not a wicked God, He knows what’s best for us and even if we throw some tantrums, His sovereignty is not dependent on how we feel anyway, lol!

More importantly, He wants to draw us nearer to Himself, and prepare/develop us for the glory ahead.

Everything God does is strategic! Looking at the life of Joseph, we saw how God took him through all those life’s seasons at His pace, in His time and His ways just to make him a prime minister.

So, with God, the end result is always worth the wait!

God’s timing is flawless, His ways are perfect and His plans are always better than ours! We only need to trust Him!

Be strengthened!
Keep Flourishing!💋

Inspiration || Lay Out Your Fleece If You Have To

Even if you have to lay out your fleece
Don’t stop depending on Him
If you have to cry out for help, do so
But never rely on your own understanding
Rather go all the way with God

Your unbelief or burden
Your troubles or struggles
Your desires or dreams
Your today or tomorrow
It’s OK to lay them all at His feet

His love, His grace
His word, His truth
His will, His way
His plan, His purpose
The best place to be is at the center of them all

Yield, obey, and surrender to His commands
There’s great peace in obedience
You just be content in His will
Be confident in His ways, and
Be comfortable with His plans

Knowing that surrendering precedes success
Obedience brings victory
Faith delivers miracles
Expectation births manifestation
The supernatural is not farfetched

Do not be afraid to follow the pillar
Either fire by night or cloud by day
You will be directed and guided aright
God delights in guiding His children
Just act according to His directives.

Keep Flourishing!💋
