Last week my Pastor, Joseph Hewitt, gave us a very important revelation about our situations. He stated that most issues could be summed up like this - Problem, Praise, Promise. We first have a problem, but if we continue to praise Him, we will receive the promise.
I experienced this first hand on yesterday. I was so focused on my problem that I forgot to praise God and forgot about the promise. God is not slack concerning His promises towards us. We become slack when God is not moving with the urgency we feel we deserve.
I had to take some time out yesterday, right in my living room and jump, shout and thank Him for the promises He has revealed unto me. I had to thank Him for my home, my children, my job and my life. I had to give up much praise for He is His good and His mercy endures forever.
I realized that problems are a way of moving us into our destiny and propeling us to do something else to reach our goals. I can't continue to complain about a situation, but do nothing to make it better.
I am looking to experience an exceeding, abuntant life because He came that I might have life and that more abuntantly. My goal for the Month of October is to praise Him with all that is within me. To give glory to the one who has given me life. To look to the hills, from which comes my help. To believe to see the goodness of the Lord. To Walk IN FAITH, with these heels on!
Keep Walking, you are almost there!
