He did not let me miss it!

This morning, I’m just grateful to God for the things; the divine opportunities, the divine connections, the divine assignments He did not let me "miss".

You understand I"m sure, even in the midst of praying and seeking God, sometimes we are not quite on the mark.  We may have to many other voices trying to give direction, or, sometimes we are caught up in the busyness of life, and misread the "signs"  because our attention is focused on the wrong things.

Then, lets not forget how easy it can be to give in to our Emotions...and make decisions based on how we FEEL, at a given moment.  And then frankly, there are times when we almost miss God because of Fear.  Fear masks itself in so many forms; like Procrastination. We keep putting things off, or are simply slow to move or step out on something God is showing us.  Fear even masks itself as Wisdom!  yes, Wisdom, but not God's Wisdom...Man's Wisdom.  In other words...we are focusing on what make "sense" to us.  All of the above can keep us in God's permissive will, rather than His Perfect will.

But God.  He is soooo Good.  I see God holding doors open just a bit longer.  GLORY!  Other times,  He closes doors.  He sends us those extra signs and nudges to direct us.  Sometimes, He sends someone to get us, or to warn us...all in effort to ensure we walk along the path He has planned for us.

I say - Thank You Lord!

He says...Trust me Daughter!  

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version (NIV)

A Season of Shifting

This season of SHIFTING! (Changing, Modifying, Flowing)

The last two days God has been showing me dry cracked land. This morning, what I could hear Him say concerning this, is that when the earth Shifts, it causes the land to "crack open."

What I also hear, is that we better Catch this season of Shifting, because the place where we have been standing, that we thought was "solid ground" could suddenly open up right under our feet, and we could literally "fall through the cracks." It has happened before…Numbers 16: 28-33, Psalms 106: 13-18.

Numbers 16:28-33  New American Standard Bible (NASB) 
28 Moses said, “By this you shall know that the Lord has sent me to do all these deeds; for this is not [a]my doing. 29 If these men die [b]the death of all men or [c]if they suffer the fate of all men, then the Lord has not sent me. 30 But if the Lord [d]brings about an entirely new thing and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that is theirs, and they descend alive into [e]Sheol, then you will understand that these men have spurned the Lord.”

31 As he finished speaking all these words, the ground that was under them split open; 32 and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who belonged to Korah with their possessions. 33 So they and all that belonged to them went down alive to [f]Sheol; and the earth closed over them, and they perished from the midst of the assembly.

Psalm 106: 16-18
6 When they became envious of Moses in the camp, And of Aaron, the holy one of the Lord,
17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, And engulfed the [c]company of Abiram.
18 And a fire blazed up in their [d]company; The flame consumed the wicked. 

I believe this to mean, that if we are not in the flow of God in this season, if we are not walking in obedience to His word, we can suddenly find ourselves to be irrelevant (immaterial or unconnected), our ministries irrelevant, or even obsolete (old-fashioned, out -of-date). You think Change is uncomfortable? Believe me; you don’t want to know what it feels like to be considered Obsolete.

The SHIFT is occurring, right now! So, when God says move, People of God we have got to move! No FEAR, just Go With GOD! This is such a series time, and God is moving swiftly. We must repent more, seek God’s direction more and be obedient to His instructions. Amen.
