The Big Discount


Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. Romans 8:28 MSG

Discounts are great when you’re shelling out money at the grocery store or buying dinner for a group at your favorite eatery. But discounting the things you go through, not so much.

Every time I go through something, I look at it as if God is perfecting something in me. Ok, I MUST be pretty close to perfect by now. LOL It’s so important to examine yourself to see if there is anything in your life that needs to go. Friends, sometimes they’re just not good for you. They could be helping or hurting your journey. Examine. Perhaps the commonality in every situation you go through is you.

Psalm 139:23-24 GW “Examine me, O God, and know my mind. Test me, and know my thoughts. See whether I am on an evil path. Then lead me on the everlasting path.” Whatever you are dealing with, ask the Lord to show you what needs to go and what needs to stay. If your heart is crying out for more of God, then trust him to make corrections in your surroundings, but be willing to go where he sends you!

When we cried out for more, God brought us to Florida to school us under a prophetic voice. I don’t discount that. It wasn’t the easiest thing we ever did, but what a difference it’s made in our lives. When that person left, God sent another to take us to the place He needs us to be. Nothing that happens is for naught. Just because it doesn’t make sense to me doesn’t mean it’s not a part of Gods plan for me.

I have decided to follow Jesus, No turning back! No turning back!
