WEEKLY SCRIPTURE MEDITATION
LUKE 5: 22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?
Ladies when the word of God goes forth, instead of questioning God’s promises, you must walk in the boldness that His word will come to pass!
In order to change our perception and start looking at the glass as half full instead of half empty, we have to learn to let go of our worries and “what ifs”. We have to stop analyzing how is God going to do it and just receive in our hearts that He is going to do it. Your analyzing can cause you to miss out on the miracle being performed in your marriage and in your life. It’s not for you to figure it out and we cannot rely on our own distorted and worldly thinking. When a part of you start to ponder on how God is going to fix it, begin to speak to yourself and release this scripture into the atmosphere. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding ~ Proverbs 3:5. The word of God commissions us to trust God wholeheartedly. Say it out loud and remind yourself that it’s not faith if you already have it figured out. It’s not faith if you can see it. The children of Israel murmured and complained because they couldn’t figure it out. They could not figure out how they would be able to go up against men who were as tall as giants and many in numbers and then actually win. But while they were trying to figure it out, God had already worked it out. But sadly they did not receive it because they were leaning on their own understanding.
When we reason in our hearts with God’s promises, we are putting our miracle at risk which is what the children of Israel did. It’s a slap in the face that we don’t trust that He will come through. We have to walk in such a boldness that our faith moves the heart of God to act on our behalf. Today I encourage you not to reason in your hearts with God’s spoken word. His promises are Yes and Amen. For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory ~2 Corinthians 1:20. Don’t overthink it. Don’t ask yourself if you deserve it because most likely you probably don’t. None of us do. But because you are His, you are entitled through Jesus’s sacrifice. If it’s healing, you are entitled to it. If it’s a miracle, you are entitled to it. If it’s more love, joy, and peace, you are entitled to it! Make the decision that you will no longer reason in your heart when it comes to the promises of God. Believe that you already have it and let your spirit speak with a resounding Yes and Amen!
