Happy Saturday friends! I wanted to share a little something that I've not only learned but also clarity that I've received about my life in general. I'll start with this scripture, Hebrews 11:1 says "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." That scripture is the definition of what faith is. Most times we believe that we have faith because we believe in our hearts but often times we don't believe with our actions. So over the past few months I've been patiently waiting and going at my own speed with one of my God ideas and as I mentioned in a recent post, God reminded me of all the ideas and promises He showed me a few years ago. I personally like to move when God says move but I admit I have a bad habit at overthinking a lot of things instead of just doing it.
Further on an opportunity presented itself for me to showcase something that God not only showed me would be a part of my future but also something that I've been sharing here and there little by little. The opportunity was something that I've always wanted to do but never took up previous opportunities due to overthinking and just the reality of life. However this time was different...I said you know what I'm going to just accept this opportunity and step out on faith. I did this not even knowing truly how much I was going to have to put into it or even knowing if I had the money to commit. However I had been praying for provision and God told me in many ways that He would always provide for me. Sooo I stepped out on faith and took the opportunity to 1. introduce myself to the time and efforts of what it would be like to do this such thing on a more consistent bases. 2. To really boost my faith and trust in God. 3. To tap into the idea that God gave me 4 years ago. When I tell you this experience has taught me that when you are going for the very things that God promised you all you need is faith, trust and obedience and God will do the rest.
Being in God's will can never fail you. The journey to getting there may come with many ups and downs but the ultimate goal and God's promise will always fulfill in the end. It takes a lot of patience and discipline to truly step into those seasons but no matter what I'm learning that God will make room for you and open doors for you in ways that you wouldn't imagine. I look forward to seeing the other plethora of ideas that God has envisioned me with to come to fruition. The peace and joy that I get from just knowing that my desires align with God's will is fulfilling in itself.
My prayer today is that whatever area in our lives that we are eagerly waiting on God's go for, I pray that we have the faith, trust, and obedience to match. I pray that we will push overthinking and perfection to the side and that we will step out on faith and just do it. Do whatever it is fully without doubt, fear, and excuses. I pray that whatever God's plan is and will for you life will come to pass in full and that provision for every area will be your portion.
-Yours Truly, Eb
