Last post we were talking about the desires of your heart and that there is a reason for them being there. We covered the first thing you should know about that and here is the second half to that….
Secondly, it’s not necessarily about who you know or measurable your credentials are! There are plenty of people out there with credentials and degrees that they are not using for their intensive purposes that school was supposed to prepare them for! There are also plenty of people who have knowledge and skill in certain areas, but their people skill and their willingness to remain teachable is lacking.
Have you ever felt qualified or led to do certain things in your life? Were your heart strings ever tugged? Imagining the feeling of something stirring inside can be very exciting. These desires that are being laid on your heart were put there to give you strength and endurance for the calling that has been placed upon your life. As you contemplate or even take action steps towards what your destiny may look like, things can seem smooth and sailing; everything is going just the way you are wanting.
Just as you are picking up momentum….
There is a bump and next an obstacle in your path. You were sure you had everything figured out and all the pieces were put in place for you had already thought through the possibilities. How do you handle the challenge of overcoming that? Do you remain even-keeled and press through carefully seeking action steps to rectify the situation OR do you let your emotions get the best of you to the point that you begin self-sabotaging in getting in the way?
Keep in mind that not everyone is meant to be in your personal circle and sphere of influence. Keep in mind that not everyone can go where you are going. There will always be people that are in support of you, but then there are also people who will pretend to be and people who are not. This is why it is important to be careful with who you open yourself up to, who you allow in your inner circle, and who you allow to hold you accountable. Make sure that the people you let in have wisdom, knowledge, and results in these areas that you are seeking advice from.
Friends, I just want to share that the Lord is really orchestrating some things and I can’t help my excitement levels for Him and all He is doing!!!!
What does this mean for you?? Well, it’s quite simple and something I want to encourage you with today.
You know, sometimes things don’t happen right away for a reason. The Lord is really checking to see your level of commitment and if you are willing to weather not seeing the breakthrough right away! The bigger something is sometimes the more time and effort we have to be willing to sow to bring in that level of a harvest!!!
