I Acknowledge You

Proverbs 3: 5-
Do you know how sometimes you feel that God is not listening?  Or you’ve checked everything that you know according to the ordinances of God’s will, and it seems that your prayers are not reaching Gods’ ear?  It happens to the best of us.  Yet, rest assured that God hears, He understands, and He is working on your situation.

He lets us know that He hears us.  He tells us, in a subtle small way, that only God could make happen, that all is well and for us to hold out until later…(see Where Did That Come From)

You may not think that was something special, but I believe it to be God letting me know that He heard everything.  Some things may happen right away, as that incident did, and other expectations may take longer.

When things take longer than we anticipate, it’s usually because what we request from God is not His best for us at that time.  It may not be arriving on our so-called timetable, but, if we wait and allow God to be God, then we will receive the abundant, bountiful blessings of The Most High.  “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” (Gal. 6:9).

Consider the story of Joseph.[1]  Here was a man favored by his daddy.  Jealous brothers sold him (instead of killing him), into slavery in a foreign country, because he was “All that and a bag of chips.”  The Brother had game. (a gift).

Although a slave in his new place, Joseph was shown favor in the household of his new master.  Sometimes we too are blessed, and we think it’s the greatest blessing that God would have for us—but it’s not God’s best…(see Where Did That Come From)

Hands of God and Adam
The man was so good at what he did that the Pharaoh of Egypt called for him.  How about that?  Joseph went “From the Pit to the Palace.  In the end, Joseph’s brothers had to become submissive to Joseph because God had blessed Joseph with much more than he could ever have imagined.

Joseph had been lied about and mistreated numerous times, yet he held onto his faith in his one true God: Jehovah.  He didn’t allow circumstances to cause him to take his eyes off of God, the author and finisher of our faith (Heb. 12:2).

Sometimes, I too feel trapped and hopeless as Joseph must have; yet every time I see a butterfly, it reminds me that God loves me, and that He’s sending me something beautiful to fly across my path and brighten my day.  It’s as if God were presenting me with a present. He bestows so many little blessings on us that sometimes we don’t even notice them.

So, if you’re feeling as if God just doesn’t hear you through all of the tears you’ve shed, trust me, He hears, and, if you hold onto His promises, your reward is on its way; “…but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth” (Ps. 37: 9).

"Now Faith..."
When God tells you that you can, don’t allow anyone to tell you that you can’t.  God will never leave us or forsake us.  He’s right there saying, “I acknowledge you and better things are coming.” ― “I recently had to reread this for myself and grab hold to the promises of God”- Ms. “V”
