God Will Move You When…

Following the Lord’s direction isn’t easy. Sometimes the places He leads us to aren’t as smooth as we would like them to be, but that doesn’t mean God didn’t direct us there.

I’ve watched people follow the Lord’s direction, but question it when times became tough. They change what they are doing because they claim God is moving them on to something else. Now I’m not in the business of telling people what God is saying to them, but I do know this:God never moves you out at the bottom of a battle when you’re still under your circumstance.

If you are doing something you believe the Lord initially called you to do, don’t cut and run when things get difficult. Stick with it until you are successful. It can be hard to stay, but it’s important that you do, trusting the Lord to take you through the place He brought you. When you reach a high point, listen to the Lord. Maybe you’ll get another assignment, maybe not. If God’s going to move you on, it’s going to be from a point of victory and success where your effort will glorify the Lord.

    So true, I have been watching Bible story’s for the past week, I noticed the position of each person prior to defeating the enemy, they usually could not understand why God allowed this or that, but only a God could take them from a low place to bring them up an make the enemy there own foot stool. It was the Love they had for Christ that defeated the enemy. Got me thinking Jesus said, the greatest commandment was love thy father in Heaven with all your heart all your soul with all your strength and all your mind, and love thy neighbor as yourself. Gods love for us is so deep. Love conquers! It is the purest form of God. Satan can only operate on evil; hatred. Walk in Love is vitally important if you want eternal life.
