Last night before bed. I dimmed the lights in my room, lit my scented candles because it relaxes me and no other reason . And I positioned my body in a still place where I could hear from God. It was so quiet that I could hear every creaking sound my house made. I could hear the wind. Yet God was silent. I waited 1 hour,2 hours ,3 hours still nothing. So I began my usual conversation with God talking to him about my day,my concerns etc. but still God wasn’t speaking.
I believe God wasn’t speaking because he wanted me to hear what I was saying to myself and talking out loud inwardly to him.And as I was listening to myself I realize God wasn’t speaking because he was busy teaching me a lesson. One of patience, one of trust, one of faith, one of humility,and one of surrender.
While laying there the scripture Jeremiah 1:11 came to me . Specifically this part when God ask Jeremiah what do you see?But jeremiah responded the branch of an almond tree.Then the Lord said very well. I am ready to perform my word. Powerful!
11Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?”
And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.”
12Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”
There is so many deep revelations i got from this chapter but for today this one prevails. Because of the season I’m in. I will expound on it further another day.
Often times we faced situations only seeing the image presented to us at face value. But God was teaching me yet again that what I see. Is merely a projection seemingly to the appearance of nakedness of my eyes. A branch of something that could or could not be.
what God sees is the preparation of what he said in his word with regards to my life and yours. With tears in my eyes I humbled myself before The Lord. Right before the throne of grace because yet again I beseech mercy. And say ok Lord so let your word be fulfilled in my life no matter the burden, challenges, pain, attack or gain let your word be fulfilled and to you Oh Heavenly Father be the glory.
I learned a very humbling lesson.
What ever the season whether it be a season of almonds or calamity let that season not be rush until the word purpose and understanding concretize the fulfillment of God’s plan for our lives. It is the fruit of these seasons that qualifies us to stand in the shoes of the perfect will of God. It’s our road to Damascus, its our cross to calvary, its our Jerusalem in waiting for our blessing.Its the steppingstone to the next season.
I have gained great insight that a season rushed is as equivalent to prematurity of birth and what happens to us is then we step into a new season with delayand inexperience and expect maturation which is corrosive to our faith and a damaging example of our reflective ministry.
So let’s not rush the season but outlive it.
Every Chance you get seek the Lord.
His presence is absolutely wonderful
I pray every device to stop the move of God be dismantle in Jesus name Amen
