For this week's Prophetic Decree, I wanted to take you back to a blog I wrote a few years ago. "The Tales of the Two Worlds Collide" was a blog dedicated to someone breaking out of the old and walking into the new. However, the new is unfamiliar territory. The new is scary, it is intimidating, yet the new is also what we all strive towards.
Have you ever found yourself asking God if He has forgotten you or even His children?
There is no reason, so feel ashamed; most of us have. We have all been placed in situations where it seemed as if we were dealt the lesser end of the deal.
Many of us have experienced an unjust situation. These situations can leave us feeling burdened, abandoned, confused, hurt, mad, angry, and full of anguish, to name the least. All emotions are valid, and in the height of things, we tend to question God. ‘Lord, why did you allow this to happen?’ ‘Father, bring your vengeance?’ ‘God, Why me?’ ‘Lord, where are you?’
Roughly nine months ago I found a few lumps on my body. During this time, physically I had experienced tons to changes, from weight loss to skin breakouts, so I figured it was just seasonal or hormonal so it should pass. Several weeks and months continue to go by, and those lumps were still there.
I remember a few years ago I had an extremely tough time seeing the good in everything. Naturally, I would formulate reasons in my head as to why a situation either can’t or shouldn’t work out. This doubtful thinking eventually permeated into my expectations.
“What are you expecting God for?” – this is the question that rocked that doubtful thinking upside down… well at the time I had no idea what the results would be. When that question was asked, I gave myself an automatic response of “nothing”. I thought, ‘God has literally done everything for me, and there is nothing else that He needs to do.’ – it seemed humbling enough right?? ... So, I thought.
Here’s why it’s NOT!
