My child, are you expecting the Lord to do something?  Then, do not get weary in well doing. Hold on to My promises.  Your blessing will not come without the enemy tempting you to give up.  So you must stand on My word, no matter what circumstances come your way.  You are too close to your blessing to get weary and give up.  Stand firm and wait.  Wait; expecting Me to show up and move in your life and your situations… and SUDDENLY I will!

Listen closely to My words; for SUDDENLY they will jump off the page and grab hold of your spirit.  Then, you will truly understand and know that everything I have belongs to you.  So, if your spirit gets weary; rise up from your bed of affliction and speak out loud these words to your spirit: “You belong to Me, you are the heir of Abraham, and My promises to Abraham belong to you.”

There is power in reading My word.  There’s even more power when you read it out loud and allow My word to minister to your spirit.  Therefore, speak out and expect NEW life. Speak out and expect NEW victories.  Speak out and expect GREATER things.

Now, rejoice, be glad and EXPECT the Lord to move SUDDENLY  in your life. 

Psalm 5:3In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.  

Gal. 4:7 Now you are no longer a slave, but God's own child.  And since you are his child, God has made you his heir. (NLT)

Gal.  6:9  And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Gal. 3:29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God's promise to Abraham belongs to you.

Heb.  6:13  For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

Don’t allow anxious thoughts to steal your joy.  Spend your day being thankful, and those worrisome thoughts will drift away.  I made this day just for you, so don’t let worrisome or anxious thoughts steal your day.  I understand the problems which surround you, but the amount of time you spend worrying about them won’t resolve them.  Instead, spend the time you’re tempted to worry praising Me in advance for the blessing which is to come.  And if you must let your mind drift; let it drift to the blessings of the past, and how I came through for you.  Oh, so many blessed thoughts to dwell upon.

Remember to enjoy this day; embrace it with thanksgiving and love.  The enemy came to steal, kill, and destroy, but I gave My life that you may live in abundance.  So, don’t allow his anxious thoughts about what may happen tomorrow steal any more of your days.  He doesn’t know your future; he only knows your past.  Your past is behind you, and that is where he should be.  Tell him what I told him, “Get thee behind Me satan”.  Now you say it.  See, how much better you feel?   Oh, this is the day the Lord has made; rejoice and be glad, because I hold your future.

Matt. 6:24 "So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today. (NLT)

Luke 4:8  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Phil. 4:6 Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (NLT)

What is God telling you with the problems He permits in your life?

The problems we face will defeat, define, or develop us depending on how we respond to them. Unfortunately, most of us fail to see how God wants to use problems for good in our lives. We react out of our flesh and resent our problems, rather than seeking the Lord to learn His perfect will in the situation.  We never stop to consider what opportunities the situation might bring, because we’re so focused on the problem and not what the Lord is saying to us.

Here are some ways God wants to use the problems in our lives.  See if any of them apply to you:

1. God uses problems to DIRECT us.  Sometimes God must light a fire under us to get us moving from our place of complacency.  Problems oftentimes point us in a new direction and motivate us to change.  Is God using this problem to get your attention?  Is He trying to tell you to let go and move onto something greater?  Physical punishment cleanses away evil; such discipline purifies the heart.  Prov. 20:30 (NLT)

2. God uses problems to INSPECT us.  People are like tea bags.  If you want to know what's inside us, just drop us into hot water!  Our true character will be exposed.  Is God testing your faith with this problem?  If so, what is the problem revealing about you?  Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.  For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.  James 1:2-3 (NLT)

3. God uses problems to CORRECT us.  Some of our most valuable lessons come from suffering through pain and failure.  We were children our parents told us not to touch a hot stove. However, we probably learned not to touch the stove after being burned.  Sometimes we only learn the value of something; be it health, money or a relationship, by losing it or being burned by it.  My suffering was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to your decrees. Your instructions are more valuable to me than millions in gold and silver. Psalm 119:71-72 (NLT)

4. God uses problems to PROTECT us.  A problem can be a blessing in disguise if it prevents us from being harmed by something more serious.  Before leaving your home one day; you overslept, spilled coffee on your clothes, kids wouldn’t get it together, and nothing is going the way it should. You say to yourself, “Why is all this happening today?”  Then you get on the road and come across a terrible accident.  You say to yourself, if you had left a few minutes earlier…  Lord that could have been me.  You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good.  Genesis 50:20 (NLT)

5. God uses problems to PERFECT us.  Problems, when responded to correctly, are character builders.  God is far more interested in our character, than our comfort.  Our relationship to God and our character are the only two things we’re going to take with us into eternity.  We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation Rom 5:3- 4 (NLT)

Here's the point: God is at work in our lives, even when we don’t recognize it or understand it. Things will progress much easier and profitable when we stop striving, and learn to cooperate with Him by asking the Lord to reveal His perfect will in our situation.

When I started this devotional ministry, I can count on both hands the number of members I had.  I didn’t despise the small beginning, because I was being obedient.  He said to write so that they will know that He is real.  And I began to write… Every day was blessed.

Now, I know you’re saying nobody has a good day every day.  I didn’t say every day was good, I said every day was blessed.  No matter what I went through; I knew I was blessed.  I knew things could be worse.  Despite whatever I was going through, I wrote in obedience.  And I know it was because of the obedience I gave the Lord, that He blessed me; His way, and His timing.  He gave me favor one year ago and brought Barbara Beach and I together and created Still Small Voice Radio Show.

And this is the perfect time to show the Lord, I’ve never forgotten what He taught me about obedience. Therefore, I knew I had to share with you my story about what happens when we willfully disobey the Lord.  Did you know we are causing the Lord pain when we willfully disobey Him?  I didn’t know that; then one day the Lord allowed me to go through a portion of the pain He felt when His children willfully disobey Him.

The Lord spoke these words to me that night, and I’ve never forgotten them:

“My child, what you are feeling; this pain, this pain, is a portion of what I feel when My children willfully disobey Me.  I feel what you feel; and yes, it hurts.  It hurts Me when My children know the truth, and yet they disobey My words.  If only they knew; if only they knew.  Yes, your pain is great.  Never forget this night.  Never forget the pain that you feel; it will keep you close to My heart.  Now, I will heal you of your pain.  Yes, I will remove it; I will remove it.  Rest now My daughter, all is well.  Leave it in My hands, I will remove it.

I pray that as you listen to this broadcast that the Lord will minister to your spirit and cause you to think about the times you knew what you were doing was wrong, and yet you did it anyway, just because you could.  I want you to think about the times you willfully disobeyed the Lord; knowing that because of His mercy, He would forgive you.  He loves us so much and wants to do great things for us, but because of disobedience, we tie His hands.

Listen to this message of love from the Lord, and I pray it brings a breakthrough in your life.
