The Wide Place
Sunday, October 10, 2010
You know the "Christian speak" that says, when God closes a door, He opens a window? I know it is scripture based and he does deliver us out of all of our trials. Not out of the midst of them 99% of the time in my experience, and not even in the 11th hour, but the 13th. That's how we are truly purified and our faith is tested. That's how He really puts us through the wine press.
I have blogged that I felt like I was going through the birthing process and that I finally felt like I'd birthed something new. That God had brought me into a new wide place, but I really didn't know what that was. Well, yesterday it began to manifest what the new is. It is not in the place where I have labored, where I have served with my whole heart, where I have believed for a breakthrough. It's in a new place and the possibilities are exciting! I connected with people who are like minded and really the possibilities are endless. God has truly brought possibilities into a seemingly impossible situation. God sees all and His heart is for us and not against us and in the process He walks with us and watches over our progress toward becoming more like His Son from glory to glory. So, I praise God in this day that He has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it. No matter what you're going through, He sees you and He loves you and He has plans for you for a hope and a future. Be encouraged.
Blessings and shalom!
