I pray that you are all in good health and today's message will be a blessing to you. I speak blessings of favor upon you.
(Psalms 37:4-5), Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.
I have been dealing with the issue of how to get my book out to the public. I have followed God's instructions and now I am waiting for a miraculous move on His behalf. Through this book, my prayer is that I can get some speaking engagements (paid or not). It's not about the money, it's about souls and the fact that I don't feel whole unless I am out ministering and praying for women. I pray about the ministry and the book daily.
Yesterday, I read something that was such an eye-opener to me. A minister and author was saying that she was desiring the same thing as myself, but her mistake was that she looked at God as "wimpy". I don't know about you, but I serve a big God. She said she never really prayed exactly what she wanted God to do. Her prayer was basically, "Well, God, if you want to, or God, if you see fit". As I read her blog, I could relate to that. Sometimes we pray with all faith and then we close our prayer with a simple, "If it is Your will". Of course, it is God's will that we prosper, especially if it is something that will bring souls to Him. If it is something that He has guided you through.
I will give you a quick story. Yeah, I always have a story. I was looking for a new job and I had been praying about it for a year. I had the faith that God would do it for me, but I just had a simple pray, for a "wimpy God", not a prayer for a big God. I was not specific as to what I desired God to do for me. Then my prayer changed, I got specific. Here is my big God prayer; "Lord, I am praying for a good job, one that I will be happy to get up in the morning and go to, I would like great benefits for my family, I don't want to travel too long to get to my job, I want Christmas bonuses and I want to work for a great company.
Within a weeks time I had an interview for a new job. They called me back and offered me the job, but there was one catch, I had to take a $5,000 pay cut. But here is what they offered; I didn't have to travel far the train stopped under the same building that I recently worked at, the health benefit were awesome, they offered Christmas bonuses, and yearly bonuses. And every January the entire department went on an all inclusive paid vacation to a beautiful island. The first year, I went to the Bahamas, then Jamaica, Cancun and the Playa Mexico. That was definitely worth the $5,000 pay cut, which was I received over the years time.
Woman of God, my message to you is that we don't serve a "wimpy God". We serve a God that is able to do above anything that we can ever even imagine. We serve a God that will open up the windows of heaven and pour us out a blessing that will overtake us. So the next time that you are praying and believing the Lord for something, be specific. Instead of praying for a job, tell Him what type of job you want, tell Him what type of car you desire, don't just pray for a husband, pray for a man of God that will love you as much as God loves you. Be specific, we don't serve a "wimpy God". So now even my prayers will change. I knew to be specific, but I let that one get pass me. Praise God. Amen! God bless you.
