Inner voices… what are they saying to you?

Written by Winn Freeman:

Have you ever woke up with that knot of fear right in the pit of your stomach followed with what if questions? At that moment if I’m not careful my mind quickly races with images of fear and impending doom.  It’s at that time that I must choose to muster up everything that I can and remind myself of the great miracles in my past and what God has said in His word.  Been there done that?

John 17:9 “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.”

First let me say that I’m not Jesus but when I read His words this morning to His disciples I was reminded that I need to continue to pray for those He has sent to help with the vision that He placed in my heart.  It’s not just my vision but it has become many other’s vision too!

God’s call and focus is for the people that He created.  He wants to use us to bring purpose, passion and total freedom to those who are imprisoned by the sin of addiction.  It’s not about us, but Him.

We’re at a great time for God to show up when we’ve done all we can do! I want to remind our team and our supporters to move beyond our feelings and rid ourselves of  all negative inner voices that are contrary to what God has said in His word.  Recognize that we serve a great God.  Let our conversation be words that lift up our possibilities and potential in Jesus.  Let us encourage each other to move forward in anticipation of great challenges and many victories that are before us today and tomorrow.

Psalm 27:13-14   “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”

“Wait” in the Bible: Psalm 27:14
God exists and operates on a different scale than we do. That means that what seems like an eternity to us is just a moment to God. When it seems like God is being slow to act, we’re called to wait patiently for God to act in His own time.

Look at Hebrews Chapter 11

Taken from The Autobiography of George Muller:

With every fresh trial, faith either increases by trusting God and getting help, or it decreases by not trusting Him…If we trust in God, we do not trust in ourselves, our fellowmen, circumstances, or in anything else.  If we do trust in one or more of these, we do not trust in God.

If we desire our faith to be strengthened, we should not shrink from opportunities where our faith may be tried.  The more I am in a position to be tried in faith, the more I will have the opportunity of seeing God’s help and deliverance.

When a trial of faith comes, we are naturally inclined to distrust God and to trust in ourselves, in our friends, or in circumstances.  We would rather work a deliverance of our own than simply look to God and wait for His help.  But if we do not patiently wait for God’s help or if we work a deliverance of our own, then at the next trial of our faith we will have the same problem.  We will again be inclined to try and deliver ourselves.

God will prove His willingness to help and deliver at the perfect time…All difficulties may be overcome by acting according to the Word of God.

John 17:9 “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.”

Even when I don’t understand, it’s my faith that always gets me through!

God is still working,
