How much confidence do we have in His Word? How much faith do we have in His provision? How much belief in His promises?
A lack of trust KILLS a relationship. When we go our own way stubbornly, willfully, walking proudly in rebellion…we are NOT showing any trust.
We are instead relying on our own selves. We struggle and wrestle against Him and what He wants to do for us! We reject what He provides, because we think we KNOW what we need! It is a lesson and a reality that was brought home to me in a very real way this year.
Provision has come from places I did not even expect it. I SEE His hand in it all and I give thanks and praise to my Abba!!
He has placed amazing people in my life…people who are VERY precious to me. He is filling me up and pouring blessings into my life.
So many things are right before us and we CANNOT see because we are blinding our own selves! We ask Him to remove our blindness and then we blind ourselves! We are pursuing and trying to provide for ourselves what He has said He will give to us!
A lot of people do not consider that YHVH would ever give up on them, yet what is He to do with rebellious people who insist on going their own way? He will give them up to walk in their own self imposed blindness and self professed knowledge. They reject what He sends and seek to provide for themselves…seeing what they WANT to see.
They do NOT submit to Him…
10 “I am יהוה your Elohim, Who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim; Open your mouth wide, and I fill it. 11 “But My people did not listen to My voice, And Yisra’ĕl would not submit to Me. 12 “So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart, To walk in their own counsels.
It IS a fearful thing to fall into the Hand of the Living Elohim…
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
