It is almost midnight and God is just speaking to me. This might be the most exciting post to date! Be prepared for a bumpy ride.
So, as I was driving to Windsor to visit my mama, my sister was speeding (like always) but she was extremely tired, so I guess I’ll give her a pass. I was trying so hard to not fall asleep cause I was in frenzy all day making sure our place was clean before we left for the weekend. Just as I was about to give up and sleep, God gave me this message “respect the speed limit”. All right? What does this have to do with anything?
God will not put on you more than you can bear so why put that weight on? Why intentional make ourselves heavy then complain God isn’t answering our prayers? We have too much junk that wasn’t created by or for him.
As human being, especially in this generation, everything feels rushed. We rush when we eat, how long we talk with our parents, even relationships (side-eye). God doesn’t work that way. In the word it says that a day for us is a year for Him. Imagine that?!
We could be praying for one thing 30 days but God sees it as 30 years and STILL think we’re not ready for whatever breakthrough is coming.
For example, as I have recently mentioned, I’ve been unemployed since August (that is ending soon in His name!). I prayed AND fasted since then so God could give me a job. I even bargained with him, give me a job and I’ll start paying tithes (silly me). I honestly feel like God rolled his eyes at me every time I said that and the Holy Spirit had to intervene on my behalf more than I would like to admit.
In the midst of those waiting times, I became obsessed with applying for jobs. I was on indeed like it was Instagram! I was filled with so much distraction (aka junk) because I was intentionally looking for jobs and not letting God show me what to apply to.
We all know the famous verse, faith without work is dead but sometimes we even do Gods work. A big no mistake!
God had to use my BF to get me to stop looking. I should have caught that sign earlier when every time I logged on, the same jobs were posted. That same day, I got an email for an interview. Look at God. He came through! Some of you might give credit to me being persistent but in actuality, it was when I let go and let God. It’s not even at a place I want to work at but God knows best so I’ll continue to trust in him( feel free to pray for me).
One of the wisest men in the bible king Solomon explains in Ecclesiastes that we have a limit in life. Whether that is in strength or wisdom, GOD KNOWS ALL. Why do we act like we know better than God sometimes? He created us. He knows our every need and desire.
My advice to you,
Stay in your lane, allow God to control the wheel, don’t speed past the limit or you’ll crash.
