It feels great to write a post, I have not written many in this month but I will be back on it very soon! How is everyone doing, I’m getty because soon the site will be update and some very special things are going to be coming up this year!
Back to the title topic! God has been stretching me far and wide, one thing I have and am learning is to rejoice and dance in the storm.
Rain helps things grow! My 104 year old resident use to sing every morning and say if it was raining, ‘Dear thank Jesus for the rain because without it we would have no food, grass, or pretty flowers. She loved Jesus and I was sad when she passed.
She was right without the rain it would be dry as we know it. We would be in famine! We’ll I have been in a famine period in some areas of my life but God!!
Back in August the Lord said I will catch you up, propel you into your destiny. At first when He gave me the instructions to do something I was not sure, I hated it the whole season but about November, God started breaking me from my old ways of doing things. He was stretching me, once you stretch something it never returns to its former self. So as I was being stretched in my faith and levels with God, I was trying to do things as I did before. Hustle, I was trying to hustle hard, not realizing I was not resting in Him.
It took me a moment to even hint that I may be doing things wrong. Then I started praising more, listening more, being captivated by Him and going forward in obedience and not only was my faith being stretch and still is I could see it, I could understand and then when God kept telling me to re-read Matthew 8, I was like okay. I read it and read it and even listen to it. It wasn’t until I was driving home in a new car today on the highway by myself did I even realize what God had been doing! He was having me read His Word to fill me up for the particular time to use it at the moment. There is a Word for every situation in our lives we have to be willing to use the Word in each situation.
The Centurion comes to Jesus and ask that He speak! To speak the healing on His servant, you don’t physically have to come Lord, I recognize the power and the authority, you have over death, sicknesses and disease just Speak the Word only! My Pastor has been teaching a series called ‘The Word’ and let me say it has been wrecking my life in such a grand way! I love it!
The Lord has been unveiling Himself to me, not because I am Miriam but because I said Lord whatever you want surrender and humbling my will to His! I die right now so that You can live! I had to learn to stretch my faith, no matter what storm, hell, chaos, season or time of day and night. I had to see myself ahead before I ever stepped ahead!
“Come.” As Jesus told Peter, get out of the boat and walk on water!! Let God stretch you!! I am going to be above never beneath.
