His Move, His Touch

Criticism

Friends, family, even other spirit-filled believers may not understand why you are enduring your circumstances. They may even insist that you have sinned, or at least followed the wrong course of action. The Apostle Paul spoke directly to such a condition.

8 For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life. 9Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead (2 Corinthians 1:8-9 NKJV).

Live in God’s Grace. Know that they mean well, but may not understand the magnificent work God is producing in your life. Live in confidence of His Power and Grace.

 

Faith and Belief

When His answer comes, it might not be what you asked for. It could look different than you expected. It may not look like what you need or want.

Have faith. Put aside doubt and pick up hope. Believe Him, no matter how it looks to you.

His answers defy our logic. His solutions are beyond our power. And sometimes, the outcome He provides are more than we asked.

Ignore the common wisdom. Dismiss the crowd. Grip what He sends.

 

Sustaining Your Response

Life and existence are not enough. We must be prepared to sustain what He brings. Little Miss Jairus needed a meal after having passed through death itself.

When God brings His answer into your life, be ready to give a practical response. While Jesus has paid the price of our salvation, we must pay the maintenance for our restored lives. He provides. We maintain.

Believe He will bring the solution. Be prepared to take the next step. Look to a bright future, no matter how dark the present.

 

Conclusion

God will move in your life. Wait for Him. Believe in Him and what He brings. Be prepared to sustain, and even expand His solution for your life.

“Be not afraid, only believe”

 

Closing Prayer


Lord,
I thank you for these readers and their faith in You. Sustain them in faithfulness as they wait for Your answer. Give them strength and courage to believe. Equip them to respond in faith when the solution comes. Let their hearts know that You are standing by, no matter how long it seems to take. Give them unspeakable joy and unshakable confidence in You. Amen.
