Over the past two weeks, I have had people pray and speak over me. I have been meditating on what the Lord has been trying to reveal to me and it felt like He was only giving me a little piece at a time. While I was at the Ramp two weeks ago, Karen Wheaton prayed for my alignment. Then the following week, Betty Love spoke over me saying “the lost is now found and I need to put my stakes in Him.” I had no idea what was out of alignment…and what was lost…Well, this week during a women’s worship night at the Anchor Church the Lord put all the pieces of the puzzle together.
He revealed to me that my heart needs to align with His heart and my heart needs to align with His word and what His word says about me.
You see, my unbelief was coming from my feelings of unworthiness. I had been overlooking the Lord’s promises and forgot who I am in Him. I realized that I have been putting my stakes in self and not in my Heavenly Father.
I have prayed the Oceans lyrics…that He would “take me deeper than my feet could ever wonder, that my faith would be made stronger, in the presence of my Savior”…and man has He been trying! While doing my devotion, I came upon the question…Does your request to hear God’s voice revolve around:
- your desire to know what God wants you to do?
- your desire to know where God wants you to go?
- or your desire to know God?
Well, that summed it up perfectly! I had been so busy trying to figure out what He has wanted me to do that I have taken my eyes off who He is and who I am in Him! I am so thankful He has broken my chains yet again and that He can still use me even through my imperfections! I love how He loves us!
