He Will Not Fail

My apologies for the brief hiatus; I was on vacation for a bit, then traveling for business. The good news is that I’ll have a pretty sizeable post about my vacation coming up shortly, so stay tuned! 🙂 In the meantime, I want to share a bit about how God is working in my life. 

God truly knows what He’s doing. If you pray and ask Him for help, He will provide. I am learning this more and more each day. The key is to be patient enough to wait on Him. He, in His divine wisdom, has a plan for all of us. Sometimes, we want to accelerate that plan. 🙂 However, if you wait on the Lord you will find that things work out exactly as they are supposed to. This is true faith–allowing God to work in His time and trusting that He will not lead us astray or forsake us. 

Good things have been happening in my life, y’all. 🙂 I have no one but God to thank for them. I appreciate the blessings He’s brought to my life and the lessons He teaches me each day. I’ve mentioned in the past that I can be willfully ignorant when it comes to listening to what God is telling me. After making an active effort to consult Him first in all things, I am noticing positive changes in my life. Trust Him; He will not fail you. 

“I will come to You.”

I am taking a vow to consult God first. He knows what is best for me and so I will submit to His guidance. I have asked him to speak to me, to show me His plan for my life. If He wills it, I will do it.

In my prayers, I told Him “I will come to You.” Immediately the heaviness on my heart subsided. The worries that consumed my thoughts faded. At any point during my day when I become sad, angry, frustrated, or otherwise out of control, I will turn to Him. All obstacles are just temporary and are part of His greater plan. 

I know I am often willfully ignorant when it comes to God’s messages to me. I ignore His whispers until they become shouts. This cannot continue. I am standing in my own way and keeping myself from the blessings He has for me. I have to constantly remember that He made me in His image and that I deserve the best of His creations. 

This is going to be hard, but I will try hard. I always want to be in control, but now I know that I can’t be. Honestly, I won’t ever be. God is in control and if I obey His commandments and listen to Him, I will always prosper.
