This year will be a year to remember. I’ve had to face and make some key decisions. When things in my life get challenging, I tend to lean on Jesus even more. A few weeks ago, the choices I had to make was evident and I knew I had to do something. I weighed out my decisions and the outcomes; however, it just didn’t seem like they were in my favor. I had a spiritual warfare going on in my mind, and when that happens, I have sleepless nights and tired days. One morning, I woke up and it was like God had planted the pathway and laid it out for me. I scared me a little. I knew it was God speaking to me.
A few weeks prior, I had heard something on television or read something that said, it is okay to ask God for a financial blessing. I just never thought to do that. I always figured, if I work hard enough and do good by people, those things will come. I began to pray as I walked around my home, one thing came to mind is that I didn’t want a financial blessing due to death/insurance policy. This all tied in with the decisions I knew I would face within the next few weeks.
A week had passed, and I got this tug on my spirit again as though the decision was not final. So, I went against God’s word and decided I was going to go back and do it my way. But little did I know, He too had a plan, the final plan. I was going down a path against what my heart was feeling and the word. I was suddenly stopped in my tracks due to another restless night where a vision was laid out for me again. I shared it with loved ones around me and didn’t see how it could work but traveled down that path for a moment. I feel it was God’s way of showing me other options contrary to the initial plan and path because He knew I was going to wonder what would happen if I had done that versus going along with the plan He had already laid out for me. That journey didn’t last long. I am thankful He put the right people in my life to shed light on the alternate plan, but time was passing me by, and a final decision had to be made. From that moment, I went with the plan He originally gave me. This was through much prayer, restless nights and asking God to lead me. The vision was clear, and I knew it came from Him. I shared it with my husband who was very comfortable with the decision and it was like a heavy burden was lifted from my heart. During the entire process I had my children in mind. The scripture says, “A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children” (Proverbs 13:22); however, He already knew I had them in my heart.
I am thanking God for his favor and excited about what is to come. As I read Joel Osteen’s daily devotional today, he says, you’ll have a spring in your step as you think about what blessing is coming next. It could be today. It could be tomorrow. It could be next week. Keep expecting. Keep believing. Stay focused on the fact that God has already released into your future everything you need to fulfill your destiny. Start declaring seasons of increase over your life. Declare that favor is on you and look for those appointments of divine favor! AND I RECEIVE IT!
I hope you have enjoyed my spiritual journey. Although it has been tough these last few weeks, but I thank God for His Divine Favor that rests upon my life.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Father, thank You for prearranging a good life for me. Thank You for ordering my steps and directing my path. Help me to understand Your goodness more so that I can know You and stay close to You all the days of my life in Jesus name. Amen.
