When following God takes you on an unusual path

When studying Exodus chapter 5 I was reading how God told Moses to speak to pharaoh about letting his people go. His response was not what Moses expected. Not only he said no but he called the Hebrews very lazy and did not provide straw for them to make bricks. They had to get there own straw and still meet the quota. Word got out that the reason for all of this was because of what Moses said to pharaoh. The people was very upset (understatement) with Moses. Moses went to God and asked Him why did you bring harm to these people? Why did you send me? Sometimes when you know you’re in God’s will things can look eerie but have faith in God.

In my experience; I was called to preach a sermon at my church. Before then I would speak 2 to 5 mins here and there and my voice would be quivering and I would keep my hands in my pocket so people won’t see them shake. I asked God a similar question why do you have me speaking in front of these people? What I’d learned about God is that His plan is bigger than my fear of what the situation looks like. When that day came for me to preach it was the most I’d ever felt relaxed. Words came out smoothly, I didn’t stumble and I wasn’t shaking. I was blessed and I knew it was from God. I say that to say this. It might look like whatever you’re doing is in vain or a mistake but you have to believe that God plans are bigger than what you can see.

God bless

He will never forget you

“Can a woman forget her nursing child And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you. “Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.
Isaiah 49:15-16 NASB

Sometimes it feel as if we’re all alone; facing the devil with no weapons. Sometimes it feels like we’re drowning in our situations and we need a break to relieve some stress. Just a gasp of air. We pray….. no answer. Then your mind wonder; has he forgotten me? Did his love have an expiration date? During the time you were fighting the devil with no weapons he was training you to fight with your hands. When you were drowning he was teaching you endurance under pressure. God is not going to let you down! When the bible says you’re his child and he is your father…….. BELIEVE IT!!!!! His love is everlasting.

God bless
