After a long time of laboring in my own understanding and hoping for a breakthrough in a particular area, I let go of what my interpretation of the circumstances and how I thought they should work out that would be justice in an unfair situation. I finally stopped toiling and fretting, turned on some worship music and began to repent, worship God, dance before Him, and pray in the Spirit. I let go all my own preconceived ideas and just entered into His presence. After a long while I began to take on His perspective of the circumstances as the noise quieted and my spirit communed with His.
Whether it is an unfair circumstance or a dream the Lord has placed in your heart, if the way seems blocked or the manifestation delayed so it looks as if there is no hope of it coming to pass, fret not. The Lord’s word will not return to Him void but accomplish the purpose for which He sent it. Come into His presence and let Him continually guide and direct you, be patient and let Him bring order out of chaos in His timing and way. Then your path will be filled with delight as You watch Him bring forth. Put no confidence in the flesh, just depend on Him to resurrect the dreams He has planted in your heart.
How long, how long have I orchestrated your circumstances to refine this response from you – dance, trust, calm. You care not what happens to you or what man thinks but know it is I who see you, it is I who make your way. It is I who exalt and put down. I can raise you up with one word or I can cast you down to learn humility.
Man plans his way but it is the Lord that determines his steps. I saw your outpouring to another, I saw the work you did in the secret place, I saw all you did to help those who cried out to you. This honored Me, this was a sweet fragrance offered to Me.
Were I to pour out financial blessings to make it obsolete to even have to work to earn a living, still you would choose to help these here with the revelations I have imparted to you. You would see it as a call not a job. You love these, not the title or the prestige. I inspired the works of your hands that seems to have come to nothing, yet I can resurrect it.
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand.”
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones.”
“A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.”
