YHWH||ANYAMARY||JESUSISRAEL share a scripture, Psalm 126:5:
YHWH||ANYAMARY||JESUSISRAEL share an article, “In Due Time”, adapted from ANYAMARY’s @EverlastingJoy BLOG:
Don’t wonder where God is when you see the wicked doing good. It isn’t harvest season yet — In due time.
I am very busy keeping the SoulMotion of Joy Ministries, Inc. website up to date while I am also writing many prophetic letters to Spiritual Leaders and government authorities as I am being tested and having my heart tried.
If no one is there. GOD IS. If no one will do it. GOD WILL. If no one has it. GOD DOES. Sometimes the seemingly illusionary aspect of life will make us feel like we can put God in the back seat. Most of the time we don’t even realize we have taken over driving our lives again. He is in the backseat until we hit something and realize we unknowingly claimed dominance over our lives in an indirect way.
Let’s consider the following possible scenarios that indicate reliance on self more than relying on God:
Perhaps your prayer life weakened by beginning to say and do things that negates your prayers to God. Like complaining, murmuring, whining, working your flesh to fix the problem instead of trusting God.
Perhaps, you have taken a nonchalant approach with Bible reading and zone out without receiving a real life application.
Perhaps, you have begun placing too much weight on man’s capabilities instead of leaning on God’s Power.
Let me show you these few scriptures that a Christian Sister friend shared with me one day when on the phone with her:
5 Thus says the Lord: Cursed [with great evil] is the strong man who trusts in and relies on frail man, making weak [human] flesh his arm, and whose mind and heart turn aside from the Lord.
6 For he shall be like a shrub or a person naked and destitute in the desert; and he shall not see any good come, but shall dwell in the parched places in the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land.
7 [Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is.
8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see and fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit.
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly perverse and corrupt and severely, mortally sick! Who can know it [perceive, understand, be acquainted with his own heart and mind]?
10 I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah 17: 5-10 AMPC)
Look at Verse 8 closely. It says, “The tree shall not see and fear when heat comes.”
As long as we keep our eyes on God and not the heat, God shields us from the heat that scorches lives. If we are expecting the heat, looking for the heat, or longing for the heat, we are going to get it. What does God’s Word say instead if we expect, look, and long for the Lord:
And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]! (Isaiah 30:18 AMPC)
Know this, GOD IS IN CONTROL. ALWAYS. The more it seems devastation is on the way, press into God that much more. Never letting go, until He blesses YOU!
Spiritual Warfare: Fight!
24 And Jacob was left alone, and a Man wrestled with him until daybreak.
25 And when [the [Man] saw that He did not prevail against [Jacob], He touched the hollow of his thigh; and Jacob’s thigh was put out of joint as he wrestled with Him.
26 Then He said, Let Me go, for day is breaking. But [Jacob] said, I will not let You go unless You declare a blessing upon me.
27 [The Man] asked him, What is your name? And [in shock of realization, whispering] he said, Jacob [supplanter, schemer, trickster, swindler]!
28 And He said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob [supplanter], but Israel [contender with God]; for you have contended and have power with God and with men and have prevailed.
29 Then Jacob asked Him, Tell me, I pray You, what [in contrast] is Your name? But He said, Why is it that you ask My name? And [the Angel of God declared] a blessing on [Jacob] there.” (Genesis 32:24-29 AMPC)
I no longer care what decisions people make for my life. Whatever the decision is, GOD IS there. When the door closes on the Righteous because of the devil’s schemes, God opens another door! No man can ever outsmart God. But, a man can outrun God’s Blessings by seeking what he thinks are the answers to his problems; only to dig a deeper hole for himself, as pride prevents the protective hedge of the Lord. Those who exalt themselves, will be brought down low:
5 Likewise, you who are younger and of lesser rank, be subject to the elders (the ministers and spiritual guides of the church)—[giving them due respect and yielding to their counsel]. Clothe (apron) yourselves, all of you, with humility [as the garb of a servant, so that its covering cannot possibly be stripped from you, with freedom from pride and arrogance] toward one another. For God sets Himself against the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful)—[and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble.
6 Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, (1 Peter 5:5-6 AMPC)
Inquiry to the Haughty in Heart:
What do you need God for? You got it, right?
Sister Friends, pray for your enemies who think they got it, and who don’t feel they need the Wisdom of the Lord to make an important decision that involves another person’s livelihood.
The bigger the mishap. The bigger the consequence. Killing a man doesn’t eliminate the consequences in this world, even if they are sorry. Repentance eliminates the eternal consequences through the Blood of Jesus Christ!
But while we are still breathing, we can believe any bad seed sowed, will rear its ugly head when we least expect it. Our mishaps often reshape us towards God’s Purposes if we humble ourselves to learn from them and begin sowing good seed in its place:
Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.) [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap. (Galatians 6:7 AMPC)
When your enemy is in trouble NEXT, God is going to say, “You got it. Right?”
Despite God being as loving as He is. Your enemies will always reap what they have sown, good or bad. We are charged to pray for God to change their hearts during the learning process so they don’t end up reaping punishment of eternal proportions.
God would not be Holy and True to His Word if we didn’t reap what we have sown. I know I had some very tough life lessons to go through in life, the Hard Way, because of bad seed sown. Good news is, God takes it all and works it out for our good if we trust him. He will lessen the pain of the season of reaping bad seed, by bringing us into His Presence of Love, Peace, and Joy; if we repent and turn towards Him.
