From Experiencing God

Friday, April 21, 2017


Here are some insights from Experiencing God by Henry T. Blackaby and Claude V. King

Do you want to be wholly yielded, adjusted, and obedient to God? When God invites you to join Him, the task will have such God- sized dimensions you will face a crisis of belief. Your response will first require faith. Faith will be demonstrated by action. (Your action will show what you believe/ have faith in God for). The first action will involve the adjustment of your life to God. The second action will be obedience to what God asks you to do. You cannot go on to obedience without first making adjustments.

These adjustments could come in an endless list of ways to be selected from by God:
* In your circumstances (like job, home, finances, and other)

*In your relationships (family, friends, business associates, and others)

*In your thinking (prejudices, methods, your potential, and others)

*In your commitments (to family, church, job, plans, tradition, and others)

*In your actions (how you pray, give, serve, and others)

*In your beliefs (about God, His purposes, His ways, your relationship to Him, and others)

The list could go on and on. The major adjustment will come at the point of acting on your faith. When you face the crisis of belief, you must decide what you believe about God. That mental decision may be the easy part. The hard part is adjusting your life to God and taking an action that demonstrates your faith.

You may be called upon to attempt things that only God can do (that is so He gets the glory not us), where formerly you may have attempted only that which you knew YOU could do.

He will help you know what you must do.

Then you must choose to make the adjustments.

    thanks for the share. it's so true in my life.... i don't really dread when a crisis will come, or fear it when it arrives, because i know that when the time comes God will either use it teach me or use me to teach others. HE's gotten me this far in my life -- and it ain't always been pretty -- so I have faith that He won't be letting me down now. I may not always like His solutions but I've learned to always trust them. As long as I keep the lines of communication open with HIM -- through praying and meditation on HIS word, I'm sure I will continue to hear HIM and I won't need the 2x4 either =}

    Well said! And it sounds like God is stretching you and watching you grow into the woman He knows you can be! Keep up the good work. emoticon
