There is always something God is doing in your life and mine. Today and in the now. In life, you can miss what God wants to do in our lives because we tend to focus on past ‘encounters’ with God. We always look back to the days when we would feel God or know God to be doing a certain thing. However, this is a new season. Look at the now. What is God doing now?
At one point Paul said, “forgetting the former things I press towards the mark.” Philippians 3:13-14
Paul may have been writing about past troubles. But this also applies even to past encounters. Paul’s words pointed to the importance of staying relevant to the current trend and time you are in. Really keeping up to speed with God in your today.
God is good and He really cares about us more than we imagine Him to. He desires our success and purpose to be fulfilled more than we comprehend at times. You will definitely have moments when you feel or think that the Lord is done with you. Moments when you think that it is not going to happen as you encountered Him in that vision. But I know that God desires your success more than you desire it for yourself. Even when it doesn’t look like it or seem like it’s even anywhere close to happening.
If God is no longer doing something the way you were used to Him doing it, that doesn’t mean you are done and over with. He is changing strategy and upgrading your game. Stay relevant. Stay focused. Stay in the game. See what God is doing in the now.
So when you pray today, pray to know that He wants to fix those problems, give those ideas, those solutions, and answer those prayers more than you desire them to be answered. God always wants to make sure that His purpose is fulfilled in your life. He even wants to show you new areas within that purpose that you had not known about.
That is why in His word he says,”Call unto me and i answer you and will show you great and mighty things which you know not” Jeremiah 33:3
He wants to show you things you’ve never seen before. Through encounters, experiences, and miracles happening in the now. Go ahead and give God the praise for what he has done before. Share your testimony even. But come back to the now. Something new is happening in your life.
Is it not to Jeremiah that He said, “before I formed you I knew you”? Jeremiah 1:3 He certainly was onto something but prophet Jeremiah was not yet moving at the speed God was moving. Only an encounter would speed things up. You see certain encounters are not always what we should seek after. But walking by faith and not by sight is what we should always have at our forefront.
I’m sure there is some point you have wondered “where is God in this?”. Or you have wondered if that prophecy will come to pass. It has been almost 3 years, 5 years, 10 years, or was it even God talking.
Some questions may pop up in your mind. When am I going to get healed, lord? when am I going to get that job? when am I going to get married? when am I going to get out of debt? when am I going to make money and not always run out? when am I going to start ministering at a higher level in the kingdom? when is my business going to be profitable? is our church ever going to go beyond this? Yet the lord’s word never changes, fails, or comes up short of what it says.
“He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we may ever ask or think, according to the power working in our lives.” Ephesians 3:20
For thus saith the Lord, “Your success in life means more to me than it does to you” Remember this for as long as you live! God bless.
