God is so good when we stick with Him, the answer’s are always coming, we have just got to keep walking with Him and trusting Him, no matter the circumstances, no matter the problems, no matter how great things are going, or not going, keep your heart tender with God, keep loving on people, stay right where you are, do not make any false moves because of pressure or pleasure. Just because it does not seem like God has answered a prayer or things are slow or you’re not seeing increase just yet. Has God stopped working? NO.
He is working behind the scene, He is lining His work up for you to do, If you have a willing heart to do, you can and will do. God needs a willing heart an obedient heart, a trusting heart, It is so easy to think our lives are about what we want to see happening, but Remember you have been bought with price, your life is not your own, Remember we confessed Jesus as Lord, that means we are no longer Lord of our lives but He is.
We may have plans and dreams but are they in line with Gods plans and dreams for Us. Yes we are saved by Grace which is God’s unmerited divine favour, we are free to live. The truth is we are free to live unto Him, not ourselves.
It is not about us anymore, it about living unto God seeking His heart and willing to move with His direction for our lives.
Being renewed in the knowledge of Him that has called us, rooted and built up in Him, walking in love, walking in light, walking diligently.
But Laurence you do not understand it’s OK I’m saved by grace I can get drunk out my head, I can fight, and cheat, and lie, if that is how you think, let me tell you that is not what grace is about at all, grace is not a licence to miss the mark (sin). We have been made righteous we are sanctified, we are redeemed, we are to live unto Him. and not to please ourselves.
Grace empowers us to do what truth demands of Us!!
Our business is to do the Father business, now that we are born again filled with His spirit, set apart to be living examples of His love and grace and light. It is not just the ministers that should live this way but every born again child of God can and should live unto God and we have the freedom of chose how we live But why say we are when we are not.
There was an old saying from an old minister of mine, He said “if you’re going to sit on the toilet, then go. If not get off, and let someone else go”. So many say they are living unto God but are not.
If you have been hurt in the past, God can heal your hurt, there are so many wonderful believers that God has great work for, but the past hurts are stopping them, But God wants you to know He loves and needs you, you are important to Him, don’t stay hurt but go to your Father and let Him heal your heart then arise and go. Don’t trust in men but trust God, He is going to make you the head and not the tail. Time is important and His timing is perfect, God wants you to know to take your stand and move with Him and live for Him now. As you move the answers will come. It is time to stop using Gods grace as licence to do what on earth you like and get serious, if you’re not serious already.
God is with and for you, He has great plans for you and a expected end. I do not really write in this manner But I was very much touched in my heart to do this. If you won’t do the job God has called you to do, then God will get someone else to do it.
Today is the day to make your move with God, Go to Him today and watch Him move heaven and earth for you, watch Him move the mountains out of the way and make them plain. take a stand for Him, and He will take a stand for you, and cause you to be victorious and abundantly blessed. I know someone will get touched by this may be more. be that vessel unto honour and meet for the masters use and prepared unto every good work. 2 Timothy 2:19-26

2 Timothy 2:19-26
King James Version (KJV)
19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
