Without weakening in his faith, HE FACED THE FACT THAT HIS BODY WAS AS GOOD AS DEAD—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, BEING FULLY PERSUADED THAT GOD HAD POWER TO DO WHAT HE HAD PROMISED (Romans 4:19-21 NIV).

I was having a discussion yesterday with a friend and we were talking about the fact that there are times God allows us to get to the position where we know that if God does not do this for me then we know beyond a doubt that it is not going to happen. Many times, because we’ve got options we don’t really get the opportunity to exercise our faith, but when a 62 or 63 year old woman is still expecting to get married, then you know that she is waiting on God alone to make it happen and not man.

In our text above, Abraham was waiting on the promise of God to have a child and he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead however, he dared to believe God anyway. For him to face facts means that he knew without a doubt that there was no point looking at his situation. His focus had to be 100 per cent on the Lord. He was fully persuaded that God had the power to do what He had promised.

I strongly believe that this is why the Lord makes us wait at times. He allows us get to that point when all other options are dead. At that point we only have two options; give up or believe God. However, guess which option a lot of us settle for. We choose the former and give up. However, the Lord says… My righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back (Hebrews 10:38 NIV). Abraham should be our example. He did not weaken in faith. Rather on the contrary, he was strengthened in his faith. He knew that God had the power to do it.

Now, the question is… regardless of the condition of your situation and how dead it may seem, are you fully persuaded that God has the power to do what He has promised? If so, why not begin to give God the glory in advance.

Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? (Jeremiah 32:26-27 NIV)

God bless you

24. September 2013 · Comments Off on THE WHEEL OF GOD THAT PREPARES YOU FOR THE WILL OF GOD · Categories: Category, God's Plan, Grace, Jesus Christ

One of the signs that shows that you are about to walk in to the purpose of God for your life is that all of a sudden, everything that can be shaken in your life gets shaken so that what cannot be shaken may remain. It will seem like you are spinning around so fast and it’s something you can’t explain. It’s not like you are not praying and fasting earnestly but it seems like the Lord is not listening to you and as a result you start wondering whether He still answers prayers. Off course you know He does because you can witness Him answering everybody else’s prayers but yours. If you happen to be experiencing such at the moment, then know that you just might be at the Potter’s House where He is shaping and moulding you so that He can use you to accomplish His will.

Jeremiah said… This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him. Then the word of the Lord came to me. He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “LIKE CLAY IN THE HAND OF THE POTTER, SO ARE YOU IN MY HAND, Israel (Jeremiah 18:1-6 NIV).

LIKE CLAY IN THE HAND OF THE POTTER, SO ARE YOU IN MY HAND… and the reason why He is shaping you is to make you a vessel fit for His use. Now, just imagine that the pot refuses to stay still in the potters hands and tries to escape at every chance that it gets; can you not see how the process become even more difficult. The more it tries to escape, the more it gets marred and the process takes even longer. And I can just imagine the pot asking the potter why the process is taking so long. The Potter is bound to say it’s because you are not staying still.

If this is you, are you resisting this process or have you got a willing heart that is open to be changed? THE WHEEL OF GOD IS PREPARING YOU FOR THE WILL OF GOD. Instead of getting very frustrated about your life, why not focus on what God is doing and start asking God what He is up to. Ask for the grace and strength to stand still while He downloads His will which is perfect.

God bless you
