|Luke 12:32 – “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.”|
God has such good timing. I wasn’t going to exercise today but then thought I should at least walk. So I turned on my music as ‘Different’, by Micah Tyler played. I’ve heard it before but this time I actually listened to the lyrics. And then I looked up the video and his intro blew me away. I’ve been praying for several things lately. And each day I feel they go unanswered. I try to stay hopeful but it gets hard. Aren’t I worthy of it? My past patterns lead me to think that they’re being withheld from me until it’s earned. Luke 12:32 and Psalms 84:11 reminds me this isn’t true. My circumstances aren’t as dire as his but our prayer is similar. Jesus, can you just change my circumstances? And just like him, I’m finding out that maybe the best question is – God, can you just change me? Change me so I can handle the things you’re walking me through. Are the things I’m asking Him to change going to make me more like the world? Or are my circumstances changing me so that I’m set apart? I want to be different. He is changing me. And that is making all the difference.
‘I don’t wanna hear anymore, teach me to listen
I don’t wanna see anymore, give me a vision
That you could move this heart, to be set apart.’
Psalms 84:11 “For the lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk is blameless.”
