During your walk with God, it is extremely important to know it is just that; YOUR walk. I remember when I used to think I wasn’t blessed or “highly favored” bc my life wasn’t happening the way others’ was. I would read or hear about different ppl’s testimonies; how random ppl would come into their lives & bless them with cars or money to pay off debt. I used to think that God didn’t notice me bc I never had ppl meet me for the first time & tell me exactly what’s on my heart. To me, I thought that’s what having a relationship with God meant. I thought that some kind of drastic miracle had to occur in my life to be considered favored by God. Crazy, right? Like that was my “ticket” into heaven or something. I’m sure someone can relate, but all I had to do was live a little longer, endure some hardships, & get to know God for myself instead of paying so much attention to how He moved in other ppl’s lives. I believe in God, bc it’s personal for me. Yes, it’s mind blowing to have a stranger speak on your deepest, darkest pains, (God being the demonstrator behind that) but it’s even more amazing to have God speak to you directly. To know His voice when He speaks, to still see His hand on your circumstances when they make no sense. I’ve been through things that I know only God brought me out of. I’ve been in situations where I could’ve been hurt, my freedom was at jeopardy, my life was at risk, but God covered me. Although I was selfish at times, wanting the things of God, I soon came to realize that I’m thankful just for WHO He is! Him being my personal teacher taught me to appreciate wisdom when it speaks. No matter who it’s coming from. Now I know how to identify God & take heed. Don’t miss out on your blessings bc they don’t look like someone else’s.
Prayer: Lord, help me to recognize You in every area of my life. Forgive me for wanting the things of you, but rejecting the teachings of Your Word. Thank You, Lord for keeping me even when I didn’t want to be kept. Thank you for covering me from unseen dangers. I pray that from this day forward, You begin to reveal Yourself to me so that I may build a stronger, more personal relationship with You. In Your son Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
