♕ Today's Promise: “O LORD, we have waited for You eagerly; your name, even Your memory, is the desire of our souls.” Isaiah 26:8
Dear Brides, are you settling for less? I didn't know that I was until I read this chapter, "Don’t Settle for Less" and saw how afraid I was to come to my Heavenly Father and ask for abundance and for what I really want!
Even though we don't deserve things, He is so graceful and He wants to give to us. I know that many times He will not give me what is not good according to His plan and word, but this chapter showed me that He cares about everything happening in my life, even the small or big requests, and I was able of experience it many times before, but during the current season that I am living, the waiting makes me want to settle for less just because I am tired to wait for His best!
I should not be ashamed to ask Him what is in my heart, He actually knows it way ahead of myself!! The times that I have the bold prayers that look like crazy things in my eyes are actually prayers that He answered in such an Amazing way, I didn't want to settle for any less than that. An example was just after my divorce that I didn't have a place to live and neither work. In my prayers I let Him know what kind of job I didn't want, and that I wanted to work for Him from the security of my home, talking about Him every day and all the time, then I said I want to work for RMI. I didn't know how He would do it, I declined job offers just because I didn't want less, then after 6 months I started to work for the Ministry and I didn't know that it would be better than I had imagined!!!
Journaling is a very helpful way for me to bring to Him the deepest desires of my heart in a very specific way. It is also a good way for me to go back and read when I am tired of waiting for Him to give what I've asked for. Making sure to also go back to the boldness prayers that He answered will give me faith to wait for His best.
Lord, I confess that I am very impatient to wait and will rely on others to give what is not your will but mine. Please forgive me for not asking you, for not waiting on you, and for hearing the other voices that will accuse or discourage me from pursuing the dreams that some of the times you put in my heart. I confess that I will walk on the easy path because I am tired of the difficulties that come from walking always on your way!
Lord, thank you so much for this lesson and showing me that I should not be afraid to ask and to show me a glimpse of this when I come with confidence to the throne of your grace. Thank you for showing me dreams and answering my prayers, thank you for letting me know that you are working in my life, and for remembering all the craziest dream, that for those who are outside were impossible but never for you!!
Dear Brides, I learned that I have an amazing Heavenly Father who is waiting for me to share what in my eyes is impossible but not for Him, He delights in giving His best, even more, that I can imagine!!
“O LORD, we have waited for You eagerly; your name, even Your memory, is the desire of our souls.” Isaiah 26:8
"And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen." Philippians 4:19
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!" Matthew 7:7-12
