PRAY PLAN PROCEED

When our lives are in a whirlwind, where do we even begin? Over the years many people have told me that during times of trial, tribulation, or just plain confusion we do one of two things: turn to God or away from Him. Looking back, I can think of far too many instances where I threw in the towel

and turned my back on God. On the other side of things, there have been times where all I did in the midst of a storm was cling onto Him. When the going gets tough, where do you fall?

That’s the thing, it feels like more often than not I merely fall. I’m not falling to my knees like I should, I’m not giving my burdens to Him as 1 Peter 5:7 says.
We must remember that God doesn’t want us to aim for perfection before we go to Him. He wants us to come as we are. Yes, He wants our broken, imperfect selves. Next time your world has just been shaken and your mind is racing at one hundred miles per hour, start by praying to Him despite how other people see you, or even how you see yourself.
Laying whatever concerns plaguing your heart upon His feet doesn’t take away the situation you’re facing, however it does give you the peace and hope you need to keep going onward.
Next, you remember to plan and then you proceed in those plans. Now that you have peace –a peace that reassures you that no matter the outcome, He will always be there–how do you anticipate moving forward in this event? How can God be glorified throughout all of this?

Pray, plan, and proceed are three words to keep within your heart for the times that you’re facing a fork in the road.

LEARNING PATIENCE THROUGH GOD



Learning patience through God
Part of becoming spiritually mature is learning the difference between “no” and “not yet,” between a denial and a delay. The Bible tells us, “He who is coming will come and will not delay.” (Hebrews 10:37 NIV)

If you’re discouraged because God is delaying to answer your prayers, then you have to understand that the delay is NOT a denial. Just because the answer hasn’t come – YET – that doesn’t mean God is not going to answer or that he’s forgotten you or that he doesn’t care about you.
It simply means “not yet!” So you have learn to be patient. Not only once but for every minute you spend working to pass the test. Until you pass the test that God has given you, you will not see any changes in your life. But you have to be patience in your journey and you might not feel the pain of the wait. You have to let the patience be you, it should be a part of your life or rather your lifestyle. God tests you so that you could you can realise His faithfulness in all your trials. 
There is purpose in the process of your trials. Hebrews 12:2 says; waiting on God forces us to look to Him. We are forced to cast our eyes into Him as the source of our faith. It reminds us that Christ’s death and life is the reason we can be filled with and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Trials cause us to continue by increasing our knowledge of God and relying on Him on all that we do. Standing patiently when we wait on the Lord does not mean being stuck at a dead end or in the middle of nowhere. Ephesians 6 tells us to “put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then.” 
To hold ground by remaining obedient to the Lord while waiting is not being passive. Realise that the word stand is repeated three times. Patience is an act of the will to claim ground for the Kingdom of God, and is rewarded richly by Him. Revelation 3:10-11 talk about God’s care for those who persevere through the battle.
Whether we feel we lack patience to wait on God, or to continue to love those that may be hard to love, we do it knowing that we have access to all the patience we need. We can trust God to give us the strength to bear our circumstances and instead wasting time questioning Him and trusting in Him and His word.
