There are things many of you have STOPPED believing God to do because He has not done it in ways you thought he should have done it. Some of you wanted to become a parent, but God knew you would do better with teaching MANY children, allowed you to birth children in your 40s or 50s, mentor youth, buy schools or youth centers, or gave you godchildren. At the end of the day you are still giving, investing, and helping develop children. Some of you are depressed, can't see how your desire are happening, or live in doubt because you are still waiting on this and that, but have not told God, "I want you to be glorified in my life, please do it your way, and I believe you are the resurrection for EVERYTHING in my life." Having this state of mind changes your perceptions towards life and increases your hope or FAITH. Plus it allows you to live out the laws in order to be blessed. You find yourself freely celebrating with others when they do, gain, or become what you desire. You will have peace knowing what you want will take place in how God desire it to happen. Worrying about your life will never be a factor. We tend to focus or become stress of how it should be done and not being thankful or mediating on God's way or what He is already doing in our lives. We try to make it happen and find ourselves causing more issues or live a life of defeat. The goal is to have the same attitude as Martha towards life situations we can't control "but I know that EVEN NOW GOD WILL give you whatever you ask." Jesus asked Martha in v26 after informing her who he was "Do you believe this?"
This note is to encourage you to believe and only desire God to do what you want HIS way. It will happen if you don't STOP believing, but most of the time it's usually in ways you least expect. I'm not sure if you are aware of Mrs. Tamar's story, but she is a great example of Martha. She was aware that God could do it, but based on her story it was not done like she thought he would do it. At the end of the day she thank God for all he has done. Please listen to her song Thank You Lord....You just Emancipated in Your Chair with Nancia...
