When you have prayed, given and fasted and are still struggling with doubts that things will ever turn around in your situation, and find yourself afraid to move forward in the direction in which the Lord is leading you, keep pressing forward regardless of how you feel. Feelings are fickly and can’t be trusted.
Let the pressure bring you back to that place in your heart where you once again pray, “Lord, I want to love like you love.” This is a prayer that God delights to answer. His grace will flood in to meet you at your point of willingness to be conformed into the image of His Son.
When you are in dire need, at the end of your rope and wondering when God is going to come through for you, shift your focus to how you can come through for God, He will empower you to become as He is in your situation.
To be as He is, is to want what He wants. To want what He wants, is to do what He does. To do what He does, is to create how He creates. To create how He creates is to say, “Let there be light,’ and there is light. Pray for your daily bread but also pray, “Thy will be done.”
