Always on the Move!

by | Nov 13, 2014 | Devotionals

Lord, I feel as though all sorts of breakthroughs are just around the corner. It makes me think of the Narnia Tales when things had been going so badly for so long, and then someone caught a glimpse of Aslan, or little miracles started to happen, they knew that Aslan was coming to redeem the situation. It seems that You have always worked that way in my life—after long periods of struggle, there’s always a big breakthrough. When one prayer gets answered, it seems to trigger an avalanche of answered prayer. I believe things are moving in that direction right now, and after this long period of trial, I am ready. I pray I have been a good student during this time, and that I have learned the things You were trying to teach me. Thank You for the glimpses of light I am beginning to see. Thank You for your great love and mercy. I love You so much!

Dear child, I am always on the move. Sometimes it is just more visible to you, and those are seasons of harvest. But the times of planting and watering are just as important. Do not despise the day of small things (Zec. 4:10), because my plans are moving forward always—they cannot be thwarted (Job 42:2). Just remember that times of struggle are also part of the plan, because they teach you invaluable lessons on walking by faith, as they help you to focus on the things that are unseen and eternal rather than the things that are seen and temporary (2 Cor. 4:18). Focus on Me and rest in my love, and I will dispel your fears (1 Jn. 4:18). I always stand ready to comfort you in your affliction, and have not left you as an orphan, but have poured my Spirit on you and in you (2 Cor. 1:4, Jn 14:18). Therefore, you have all you need to walk victoriously (2 Cor. 2:14). Yes, I am on the move—the things that have been obscured will become clear soon. The seeds that were planted underground will soon break through, and you will have cause rejoice, but even now you can rejoice in Me. Rejoice that you belong to Me, and that I am working out my good purposes in your life (Rom. 8:28). Rejoice in me always (Ph. 4:4)! Choose to dwell on things that are true and worthy of praise (Ph. 4:8). That means, you cannot allow thoughts about negative circumstances to consume you—rather enter my presence and let my consuming fire burn away the chaff of fear and doubt. As you do this, you will soon find yourself reaping the harvest that has been planted. I am the Lord of the harvest, so stand behind Me and it will come. Do not jump ahead of me or try to control it. Rather stand still and watch Me bring it about (Ex. 4:13). I love you my child, and am always working on your behalf. Rest in that knowledge.
