Feb 22, 2018 Karla’s Blog Today’s devotional is teaching us again about believers faith and the true gift it is. We say it quickly from our mouth, but so few of us practice it in action. When is the last time that you thanked God for something you had not seen? I remember a service at my home church, in Memphis where I grew up, and the Pastor spoke on this. I remember him asking each to think of their greatest need, then ask God if He will get you through to the other side. Then he ask us to start praising Him with thanks before we ever see the slightest movement. Truly thanking God for an open petition, and there by showing we know it will be answered, without the slightest doubt. God absolutely will take care of our needs. He knows our heart and has taken the time to individually plan each moment of our life. He knew what was coming, it wasn’t a big surprise to Him. I believe the problem is that we say we have faith, but we aren’t showing it truly with our actions. We all know that actions are how we show what we truly believe. Now having heard this, reevaluate you past hours, did your thoughts show your belief in action? Did you secretly delight when someone who has treated you bad had hard times fall upon them? Did you desire for someone to have to endure the trials you are facing? Did you envy what someone else has? Did you ever think that God has forsaken you, while you suffer through a hardship? Did you deceive others, by causing them to believe something that isn’t true? Yet, with this same sinful human mouth, say why isn’t God giving me what I truly desire? What you need to see, is that what you desire is not the will of God. It will either harm you, or cause you to sin. So often He protects us from ourselves. Praise Him for it. Just as a child would want ice cream every meal, a parent knows it isn’t good for them, and gives them their vegetables. God knows all and is giving us what is best for us. We are so very blessed to have a relationship with our God. How could we ever doubt His Love?
