So, I post on here a lot of how God came through for me with favor, a manifestation of unexpected income, canceled fees, etc. This past week or so I got really down because I didn’t get picked for either of the two really big auditions that I had. Also, in my refinance efforts, the VA appraised my house for $13K less than the appraisal I had last year.
In my heart, I silently closed a door of intimacy toward God and doubt, and disappointment quickly grew into despair and quiet resentment. I used to wonder how the children of Israel could see God perform such great miracles in Egypt and then quickly murmur and complain and even walk away from God when things got tight in the wilderness.
I am guilty of having the same heart and what-have-you-done-for-me-lately attitude toward God. I am in the process of turning that around right now. I just had to remind myself that God always comes through.
He might not do in the way that we expected or in the timing we’d hoped. That was my mistake. I just “knew” that God was going to produce a “breakthrough” in one of the ways that I could see.
When it didn’t happen that way, I got “sideways” with God. I’m glad that when I get sideways with God, He doesn’t get sideways with me. Today I just picked up where I left off, believing God for answers and direction. I put my faith in action and today had a meeting with a man about part-time sub-duty.
I called some creditors and got a late fee canceled and favorable payment arrangements on three different accounts. Plus, the Holy Spirit reminded me of some money that I have coming in Jan that I’d forgotten about.
The devil had gotten me so focused on what hadn’t worked out, that I had forgotten what had. Again, I had also forgotten that God always comes through. Always.
I was looking at what was seen and not what was unseen. In the unseen are actions taking place because I am a tither and a giver, and I believe that there is a return from God on the seeds that we sow into the kingdom!
