knowing God’s Will Is Not Enough

ImageKNOWING GOD’S WILL IS NOT ENOUGHLuke 1:34, “Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?”LUKE 1:26-38Contrast Mary’s question and Gabriel’s response with the question that Zacharias asked Gabriel and the response that he received (Luke 1:18-20). You will find the questions are similar but the responses are totally different.Both Mary and Zacharias asked how these miracles would occur but it is evident that Mary was asking “how” in faith while Zacharias was asking “how” in unbelief. It is a clear Bible teaching that unbelief doesn’t please God (Heb. 11:6), but the Lord doesn’t mind us questioning Him for the purpose of instruction so we can cooperate with His will in our lives.Abram knew that it was God’s will for him to have a son but Abram and Sarai came up with their own plan which caused them and the world much grief (Gen. 16:1-6). Abram would have avoided many problems if he had asked the Lord how He was going to accomplish this miraculous event.If Mary had not questioned this angel, she might have reasoned that Jesus would be born through the natural union of her and Joseph. This would have been a grave mistake. It would have disqualified her from being used.It’s not enough just to know God’s will. We need to continue to seek the Lord until we know God’s plan for accomplishing that will.

You Can’t Serve Two Masters

If I am truly your Master, you will
desire to please Me above all others. If pleasing people is your goal,
you will be enslaved to them. People can be harsh taskmasters when you
give them this power over you.

If I am the Master of your life, I will also be your First Love. Your
serving Me is rooted and grounded in My vast, unconditional Love for
you. The lower you bow down before Me, the higher I lift you up into
intimate relationship with Me. the Joy of living in My Presence
outshines all other pleasures. I want you to reflect My joyous Light by
living in increasing intimacy with Me.

Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the
one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the
other. You cannot serve God and wealth.

Revelation 2:4 4But I have this against you, that you have left your first love

Ephesians 3:16-1716that He would grant you, according to the riches of
His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the
inner man, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and
that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

Psalm 16:11 You will make known to me the path of life;

In Your presence is fullness of joy;

In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.

Ever been in a situation where your family turned their back on you, your so called friends are talking about you folks lying on you bringing up your past and you feel like you’re alone and you feel Battered, Bruised? but God is saying;

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, and I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10.

You bounce back you’re determined to win this fight and you begin to rejoice! In the Lord because the fire in you that has always been but because of bondage you couldn’t see it has ignited, it’s just like fire! Shut up in your bones and as you look at all you’ve been through you’re no longer inferior of the enemy, of your past or people who have put you down and said you would never be nothing nor amount to anything. Know who you are as a human being as a person and as a whole.You realize you could’ve been dead but you’re still here by God’s “Grace “and “Mercy” and every negative thing that was ever done and spoken in your life rather it’s drug addiction, prostitution, in imprisonment, homeless, lost everything, abused physically and mentally and raped or molested. It has been defeated In the name of Jesus and you know without a doubt there is a purpose for your life and what hasn’t killed you made you strong. You speak life and not death and you know without a doubt God delivered you out of your situation in your right frame of mind then my brothers,sisters you need to lift your hands to heaven and take 30 seconds or more and give God the most high! Praise! and just worship He’s so worthy.

I just wanted to share this it blessed me!

Devotional

Trust In God’s Promises

2 Peter 1:4 (NLT):

And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

Today’s Thought:

Have you ever just sat back & reflected on what God has promised you? His promises are yes & amen no matter how long ago it was. Do not be discouraged if some promises from 20, 40 or even 60 years ago have not happened yet. You can trust Him!

Today’s Prayer:

Lord, thank You for Your divine word. I ask that You help me trust in You no matter what. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen!
