Why do we ask God to give us answers only to turn around and question the answer that He gives?
That’s kind of where I am in my life right now. I quit my last job because: 1. I wasn’t happy, and 2. because I was being pulled in another direction. I asked the Lord to let His will be done in my testing situation, which was a requirement for me to continue my employment. I was left with no choice. It was time for me to go. My time there was up. The Lord’s will was DONE. Now, I sit here and wonder where my next check will come from. I feel like I shouldn’t have left. Should’ve given it another chance. Why?
The Lord opened a door for me to walk out of, yet, I don’t have the faith in knowing that He will open another door for me to walk into. Didn’t He say in His word that He would supply my needs? Yes, He did. So why do I still have this doubt?
Is it because it’s going on three weeks now? Does it have anything to do with new expenses that I don’t know where the money will come from to pay them?
You know, I was in the same position at the beginning of the year. I never went a day hungry, no bill was late. All of my needs were supplied. Julia, where is your faith? If He did it once He will do it again. Has it crossed your mind that if He closed one door, He would have another one waiting for you to walk through? God doesn’t want His children to be without.
This is such a battle for me. Creflo Dollar said today, “Don’t let your battles steal your joy.” God is too good for me to sit around and wallow in my what if’s, in my shame, in my joblessness. Every thing does happen for a reason. It’s time for me to move on. This I do know. It’s time to give God credit, for not just the things that He has done, but the things that He is going to do. Thank you Jesus, I pray that Your anointing falls upon my life. Amen!
