For thee weeks I have been in a funk. Eating horribly, avoiding the world, lazing around. This weekend I visited a church. I went for the worship (it was amazing) but God gave me a word, actually two.
1. I thought I was guarding my heart against people, but I had actually put up a wall against God. I was disappointed with God. I wondered why He allowed me to feel this pain. The wall I erected to protect my heart became a wall that prevented God from healing.
It’s time to tear down that wall. The hurt came because I expected something of a people when my expectation should have been in God. Today, I choose to open up my heart again and let Father heal my heart.
2. God is about to deal with me. Pharaoh told the midwives to kill the male children born to Israelites. But they were faithful to God and disobeyed Pharaoh. Because of their faithfulness, God dealt with them by providing for them.
God has seen my faithfulness. God will deal with me.
So, I have decided to allow my Spirit to have a come to Jesus meeting with my soul. The funk has ended. Yesterday I started 21 days of eating healthy and exercising regularly. My eyes are on the Father. Forgiveness abounds and my heart is open. I am expecting Good Things to come my way. I have put my hope in God!
Does your spirit need to have a come to Jesus meeting with your soul?
“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”
Psalm 42:11 NIV
