Timely Training

“God has a plan”

God has a plan, purpose, and will for your life. Before your existence in history, God appointed your days before one of them came to be! How amazing and all knowing is our God! Despite what people, circumstances, or your thoughts attempt to tell you, remember God knew what He was doing when He divinely ordered your steps as you endured those challenges, sad times, disappointments, setbacks, promotions, expansions, blessings, and positive accelerations. Your collective life experiences are working together for your good and training you for the plans, purposes, and will of God.

As we journey through life as children of covenant, trusting God is absolutely paramount in our lives, although we might not understand all of the puzzle pieces. But when we trust God, knowing that He loves us and will never leave nor forsake us, we are empowered to faithfully believe that God’s training is for where He is taking us. The training God has you going through is timed and on purpose! Your training is strengthening you for where God has ordained you to go. No matter what, remember obedience and faith is God’s way to the TOP! When God ordered Moses’ steps as a baby to be led, raised, and educated in the house of Pharaoh, God came through in timely training because Moses was equipped in the ways and customs to communicate with Pharaoh to serve as advocate for the Israelites’ freedom.

When God ordered David’s steps to shepherd, defend, and tend his father’s sheep, God came through in timely training because not only did his training assist in defeating Goliath, he served as king, shepherding, defending, and tending His heavenly Father’s sheep in praise, God’s will, and worship. When God ordered Esther’s steps, she received advice from the king’s eunuch and found favor with all who saw her, including the king. God came through in timely training because Esther learned order and how to converse with the king on behalf of the deliverance of her people. When God ordered Joseph’s steps to have a dream, be disrespected by his family, rerouted from his homeland, lied on, thrown in jail, forgotten about, God came through in timely training because Joseph was used to save many lives as a leader. Allow these models of timely training to encourage you today. God is training you to fulfill His plan, purpose, and will. God comes through on time.

Be EXPECTANT

Pray until your situation changes

Be Expectant God’s power is released when we pray in faith, trusting and believing Him, because faith pleases Him. Expectancy is an attribute of faith that carries its own kind of power – the power of hope. Faith reaches out into the spiritual realm and expects God’s supernatural power to show up and do what no person on Earth could do. Doubt, on the other hand, is afraid nothing good will happen; it does not please God and is not something He is able to bless. We are powerless when we live with doubt, disappointment, and a lack of confidence in God.

Just think about a time when you were not really sure God would come through for you. You were not able to pray very powerful prayers, were you? Now recall a time when your heart trusted completely in God and you really believed that He would come through for you. You were able to pray then with a certain sense of power, weren’t you? That’s the power of expectation in prayer. Even if things don’t work out exactly the way you hoped they would, trust God to know what is best and keep expecting Him to do great things.

God’s word for you today: Expect God to do great things in your life and pray boldly.

Christ Is The Only Way

Christ is the only One that can set you free — forever. To be totally free in Christ requires you to die to yourself daily and to put on the nature of Christ. Only Christ can transform you. Only Christ can set you free from the bondage of sin. Only Christ can heal the wounds of the past. Only Christ can save you, deliver you and make you whole. You can’t cover up a spiritual problem with a carnal remedy. Only Christ can fill your void and heal your heart. Your heart belongs to God, so give every concern and care over to Him — He wants to heal you — completely.

Christ wants to release you from the prison of your past and heal your deepest pain and deep seeded rejection. God has not forgotten about you. He wants to set you free. Your soul has been searching for something that only He can fill. You belong to Him. Not another car, house or business will fill the void that your soul is longing for. Only Christ can satisfy what your soul is searching for. Only He can make you whole. Only He can make you complete. Search and seek after Him and you will be filled. “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” Matthew‬ ‭5:6‬ ‭KJV
