God’s Ways

Here is something that God put on my heart to share with you! This is a very short message that was put on my heart from the Lord, but I feel strongly that many people need to hear this!

Often in life when we are asking God for a breakthrough, we are asking it with our human standards. We might want it to happen in a certain way, order, or time. Maybe you are asking for a financial breakthrough, and nothing has happened yet. Maybe God has a different plan for your breakthrough than what you are specifically asking for. Maybe He wants to teach you to better manage your finances first before the breakthrough comes.

Maybe you are asking for healing to take place. You might think it needs to happen instantly or in a certain way based off how the doctors explained your condition. Instead of asking God to heal you a certain way, ask Him to heal you in His way. The healing might not come instantly as we all would like it to. But it might take some time, and over that period God will reveal certain areas of your life that need correcting or even emotions that need healing first. Then as you are seeking Him you will see the healing manifest more and more.

It is time we stop asking God to meet our needs with human standards but in His ways. Isaiah 55:8-9 (NKJV) tells us, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”.  As we are praying for a breakthrough, we must remember that our ways are not God’s ways. Gods ways are always better than our ways. In this life, we are so focused on everything happening instantly and in a certain way.

I encourage you to ask God to reveal to you any distractions in your life that need to be removed.  Distractions on this earth come to us in many forms from poor habits, negative people, and poor time management. Colossians 3:2 (NKJV) tells us, “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”. So, is your mindset more focused on the things of this earth or the things of God? If we want to see God working in our lives, we must set our minds on Him and Heaven and not this world.

God Bless!
