The Blessing Is In The Breaking  Part 1

Why is it that every time we go through a difficulty, our first instinct is to worry and fret? Why is it that I can be so on fire for God one moment…focused and making progress, until a storm arises in my life…and then, almost as if Satan himself were the conductor and I were the orchestra…I shift my focus completely off of what I was doing and place it squarely and completely on the difficulty.

Why do we forget that He is still the God of miracles? Here are a few things I have learned about God in my seasons of doubt and unbelief…

Miracles begin with what you have. Too many focus on what they don’t have when the miracle begins with what you have.

When Jesus fed the multitudes, he used certain people that other people say don’t count. The women and children weren’t counted, but it was a child who had the bread.

The greatest miracles take time. Jesus separated the people into groups and that took time. Sometimes it takes order and structure and management of what you have. You need to get the structure ready for what He is going to give you before you can receive it

You must be thankful for what you have—for what is not enough, before He can give you more than enough. God blesses what you have and what is to come before he multiplies into more than enough. Multiplication will not follow ingratitude. 

No one is going through a storm that God is not aware of. You are going through a storm by Divine instruction.

The storm you are going through is the pathway Jesus uses to get to you. In the middle of your storm here comes Jesus walking on the water.

Storms are tests. Always have been. But I have learned that every test comes AFTER the lesson has been taught. You already know He is faithful. You already know He has been faithful in every season. The present test is to see if you remember all the times God was with you in your former storms and act accordingly in your present storm. Tell your present about your past!
