From the Father's Heart: WHAT SHOULD WE DO NOW?
We all have different kinds of needs and some of them are very important. You may have done everything about it - prayed, fasted, confessed God’s Word, spiritual warfare, etc. And still you are not seeing the answer and there is no sign of any break-through. You may be wondering what should we do now?
The Bible says, and having done all, STAND (Eph 6:13, 14).
Stand in Faith - in the goodness and mercy of God.
Stand on the promises of God that cannot fail.
Stand in the joy of the Lord.
Stand with thanks giving and praise.
But, most importantly, Stand in Complete Consecration to the Lord. Probably, it may be God who is withholding your answer and break-through for your own good. You may get your answer now for your earthly needs, but meanwhile because of lack of consecration you may lose the purpose of God for your life or even eternal life. Ps 106:15 says, “And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul”. The delay is for your own benefit.
God loves you so much that He does not want you to perish. He will not sacrifice your character for your comfort.
Read God’s Word daily, and ask God to show you where you need to correct yourself. May be the Lord wants you to give up something or do something! It was not just Faith that took the Israelites into the Promised Land but it was their FAITH and OBEDIENCE.
God said, "For I did not speak to your fathers, or command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices. But this is what I commanded them, saying, 'Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.'” (Jer 7:22, 23)
True blessings are found in loving obedience to God’s Word. You obey Him because you Love Him!!
So finally, Stand loving JESUS!!
God bless you.
