Shaped By Mercy

It is a divine day everywhere I look today, kingdom family, for I see the work of our Creator – the work of His hands and His intelligent design in all things good all around!!! Oh how true when He tells us “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)

Given that, while our Father is all about relationship with us and delights to call us His kids of faith, because of who He is, we as His created should bow our knee to His wisdom and understanding that is so far beyond us!!! Oh truly who of us is the wiser to Him??? As the Apostle Paul understood:

“Who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it? Romans 9:19

Clay in Potter's Hand

We could also say why did you make my life like this, however, our lives are often the way they are because of our own choices!!! WATCH OUT!!! OH LET’S KEEP OUR EYES FIXED ON JESUS!!! YIKES!!! When we have questions, this is not to say that it is wrong to ask questions of our Father and as we do, our Father will help us to understand what we need to for moving forward in faith. A good prayer to pray is “Father, in regards to this situation in my life, please reveal to me what I need to know and/or do to move forward for divine victory life.” Then as we seek out His answers to us, He promises us “Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord,’ and I will bring you back from captivity.” (Jeremiah 29:13) It just might be that our pursuing Father’s heart for us might deliver someone else from captivity, too!!! WOOOHOOO!!! I love that thought!!!

With You We Are Victorious

While we are saved by grace and not by works, being contrary to seeking our Father, to let questions about God be an excuse for not pursuing life with God and walking forward in faith has a price tag that will only buy us less than divine life so it is best to seek our Father on such things for best life!!! He tells us to “Cast all our cares on Him for He cares for us.” (1 Peter 5:7) Our Father is all that is good!!! God is good all the time and all the time, God is good as this song says here!!! We would not even be able to breathe on our own without His gift of life to us!!! Because a person’s heart may want a particular thing right now and our Father is not providing it yet does not mean that He has turned His back on bringing us good in life. We know from His Word His heart for us:

  • “For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • We also know that “God works all things for the good of those who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
  • “…the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear (reverence) Him.” (Psalm 103:17)
  • “For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end–it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.” (Habakkuk 2:3)
  • “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

In light of these thoughts, what question is on your heart that Father is calling to you to seek Him out about so that you can know what you need to know and proceed forward as you need to step??? I ponder the same question before Father, too!!! As we seek Him, our lives will be shaped by His mercy to us as His kingdom family for sure!!! Let us always wait for it – it will be a divine heavenly revelation in the right timing. Until then, we can act on the light that we have for the step that we are on. It is the best place to be until we have the next step!!! Oh I am a gal always asking my Father lots of questions and listening and watching for His answers, too!!! Why??? Because I have learned that our Father is sooo smart beyond us all and He is all love and powerful beyond all that we see beyond us!!! We can trust in Him to work victory beyond us even when we cannot see what He sees!!!

God Rewards Those Who Seek Him

HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! GO FATHER!!! KEEP BRINGING THE DIVINE!!! WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYER TO YOU WHO IS ALL POWERFUL IN THIS WORLD!!!

Power of Christ

Ya know – it is sure wonderful to have such a divine connection with our Father!!! It makes life heavenly, full of light and exciting to have His always fascinating perspective!!! To us He is as a roaring lion and gentle as a lamb, stronger than a wild ox and He rides forth on a white horse as one called Faithful and True and oh so much more!!! I’m thankful with ya for all that He is!!! He is…ugh…indescribable??? Oh, I know this about Him – God is good all the time and He just makes ya smile and know you are loved!!! 🙂 It’s because He is our God of perfect love!!! LORD HAVE MERCY??? – YEP!!!

God Is Love
