Pending– are you in position that you feel like you can go but the door still hasn’t opened?
Prospering– maybe you are a trailblazer and the doors won’t stop opening, nothing is holding you back!
Both positions are growing opportunities at there best. I know I have a lot I want to do but can’t seem to just focus on them because I have something already going, then there are other areas I’m flourishing in. Take a moment and reflect on your dreams and then what you have obligated yourself too. Most of my life I have been in a pending position with growth spurts, like the children of Israel going around the same mountain for 40 years.
We like to say ‘I can’t imagine that’, but most of go around in circles in certain areas in life until we humble our wills and ways to Jesus. Pray and ask God what is His plan for your life. Am I learning this? Yes at a very accurate speed, because what God has planned I don’t have a clue how He wants me to accomplish any of it without Him. Learning this has broken me, days I feel lost I know that I have not had any true time with the Lord. I get agitated, irritated, and frustrated and I have to take a step back and evaluated and ask myself, what do I need to ask Him about? When I decide to stop and ask the Lord for help, I have just answered the call to prosper! I get a nudge from the Holy Spirit when I am out of order and He reminds me of what I am missing out on. A prospering moment with the my Father.
2 Chronicles 16:9 puts it in this way, ‘For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him….’
This morning, the Spirit nudged me with the words, ‘Continue, Miriam.’
Pending is where God is trying to get our attention, to look up to the hills where our help comes from.
Psalm 119:105 ‘Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.’
I like what Paul tells Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:16 ‘Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.’
Don’t get frustrated! Pray to our faithful Father and your day will surely prosper!
