I had a conversation with a friend and she thought I should share or write down what I said, so here goes.
Me: I learned in 2016 not to place my trust in my finances but on God. It amazes me how He provides for my travel and living. Sometimes He has people just give to me for no reason at all. I have had people feed me, give me gifts all because of Abba. But it is the same way He has me giving to people as well, not to get but to know He will provide. He is who He says He is and I am grateful to know Him.
Her: You reallllly know Him.
Me: So, I don’t look to people to meet my needs but I do look to God for everything. I choose to trust His Word even when it looked like it wasn’t working. 1981-1987 was a hard time but it was a learning experience to walk in faith.
1988-2003 I watched Him break me and remake me but I knew from my past He would always see me through.
2003-2009 I was learning to submit and not to be moved by my circumstances because they too will pass. If He took care of those situations in the past, He will take care of them in the present and future.
2008-2015 I learned to stand for something bigger than myself. I learned what humility was, how walk humbly, how to not let my pride over rule what God is doing and to not move on my emotion but in His Word.
2016-present is the fruit of trusting in Him. I can’t speak about someone else’s experience but I can tell you about the Living God who has chosen me to walk this path I am on. Everything I know has come from trusting in Him and His Word. I know no other life to live.
Remember, I told you we were being tested by God as to who we trust. Your test is different from mine but the same test as to our faith in Him.
Her: Margaret to be perfectly honest you have passed me in the faith realm I am willing to trust Him and to have faith in Him. I do believe I am being tested and don’t want to fail.
Me: You know there is a famous scripture that everyone just overlooks.
23 And Jesus said to him, “ ‘If you can’? All things are possible for one who believes.”
24. Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”
Because the father’s faith was not there, he asked Yeshua to help his little faith.
I have done that so many times and will still do it if my faith is not there; because some things you just can’t see with your eyes, mind or faith. So you need to ask for help to walk it out.
The other thing is acknowledging that this is beyond your ability to handle and you need help in your circumstances. In our natural state we will turn to man for help before we turn to God. It is easy to do that but I have been where I could not get help and had to call on God for help because there was no one to help.
Her: This is truly a good message and lesson I hope you have notes.
Me: What notes, lol?
Her: Of what you just wrote, yes. But what do I do?
Me: We are in covenant with the Most High God and He has commanded that we help each other. No one has to know what has taken place as long as we know who is in charge, that’s all that counts.
This was my conversation and now my notes, thanks to a friend who help me in my test.
What test is Abba sending you through? You can always find the answer and solution in His Word. I love it when He shows me new things or old things that finally take root within me. I know no other way to live but trusting Him. And He is still teaching me and remaking me as a potter does to mold a prefect vessel of honor.
Come walk with me.
