Do you have one more nevertheless?
NOTE: For those of you who don’t believe God speaks to His people today in a voice in which He can be understood, I beg to differ. If you had conversations with your earthly father at any given time, and he was able to give you the things you needed, isn’t our Heavenly Father more able to speak with and to us and give us the things we need? Just saying.
I gave you much to think about in my last blog. You see, when God gives us that moment in time in which we know we are going to have to let go and let Him…for real, He knows we are coming to the very end of ourselves. That’s what happened to me when He took me to New York and allowed me to stay there for over a year.
When God asked me that question on that day, I didn’t answer right away. As a matter of fact, it took me several, about three, days to answer. It was not an easy matter. You see, I knew what that meant. It meant I was going to give my will over to His. It meant that no matter what He decided, I would go with it. It meant I would have to drink from the cup He was offering me.
Have you been in a place in which you had to drink from a cup the Lord placed before you? Maybe you had to leave a job position and take something lesser or greater that you didn’t know you were ready for. Or, it could have been a time in which God was removing people from your life, people you wanted to remain. On one side of your brain, you knew it was for the best, the removal. However, on the other side of your brain, you longed for that person, situation, or circumstance to remain. You wanted to hold on to those things that were probably detrimental to you.
When God asked if I had one more nevertheless, I was scared to death! I didn’t know what He had planned. You see, sometimes I thought God was playing tricks on me. I felt as though He was sitting up there on His throne to see what stupid stuff I could do on any given day. I didn’t know if I was ready for more of what was to come!
Are you in that place with God? Has He asked if you have at least one more nevertheless? Are you fighting to have your way to the detriment of your relationship with Him?
After three (3) days, I said, “Yes, Lord. I have one more nevertheless.”
Immediately, things began to happen. Stay tuned for the next installment to find out what those things were.
Please allow me to encourage you today. Give it over to God. He wants to take you somewhere you have never been. He wants to do some things in your life that have never been done. He wants you to walk in a level of excellence you have never experienced.
Thank you so much for reading my blog. Thank you for sharing with your friends. I pray my blogs give you some things to think about as you strive to be ALL God has called you to be.
Love and Blessings to you!
