♕ Today's Promise: “For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways” James 1:7–8
Hello my dear friends!
I want to exalt the Lord, magnify Him, and say that He is all I need.
He became my everything some time ago. I really wanted to feel what everyone felt, to be satisfied in Him as my Heavenly Husband, as a Friend... and so many other adjectives that He has and fulfills us totally.
My search was intense in fasts and prayers...I sought Him and said: "I want You to become my everything", but that did not happen overnight, but after a long time invested in His presence...and mainly asking Him everything, where to go, what to eat, what to wear, what to pay, asking Him to open the doors of employment, to help me in every detail of my life, then one day it happened I saw only Him and only satisfied in Him.
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” Matthew 7:7 KJV
I understood that this journey only started so that I would never again escape from His presence, nor from the plans that He has for my life.
I have experienced many blessings with Him, for being a faithful tither, for zealously, fervently following His word, for being in the direction He wants...Just as we learned in Chapter 1 RYM - Receive anything. If you don’t obey God with zealous obedience, you should expect nothing from Him because you are double-minded. “For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways” (James 1:7–8). “I hate those who are double-minded, but I love Your law” (Ps. 119:113).
Because of the pandemic, I am not working outside the home, I no longer walk or ride a bike and this has made me more anxious and eating more and gaining a few extra kilos and it bothered me, so I took this to Him saying that I do not I knew how not to be anxious and stop eating or even exercise even at home, I didn't have the mood for it. Sitting in my prayer closet, I poured out my heart to Him. Then He guided me to fast and also made me look at the newspapers that now we can go walking with the social distance, so I asked Him: “Give me the courage to go out”. And so He did, I felt like Someone pushed me and I jumped off the couch, lol...I put on my walking clothes and went out listening to dancing praises from my country...I walked for 1 hour, then I went back home excited and it went on like that the other days, He was pulling me to walk and now I feel much better...knowing that He leads everything in my life even a simple walk to remove few extra kilos that are here leaving me sad.
I encourage you today, dear bride, what is bringing sadness to you, melancholy, dissatisfied...turn off your GPS and let Him guide your steps to all things...and so for sure if you still found Him as Beloved Heavenly Husband, this will be the way for Him to show everything He wants to be for you, His beautiful bride.
