The year began on high notes with lots of expectations.
Remember our “greater is coming post”? Woah! All revved up for “greater”.
It’s March 2014 now, do you still believe in greater?
Personally I’ve written and sent articles that were not published.
I’ve entered for a competition with big money at stake and wasn’t even picked.
I’ve hoped for a miracle for my sister that seems like it won’t come to pass, even after the prayers, fasting, faith and a testimony written out already.
I’ve written two tests here in Law School, one was on entry into pro bono week that will be organised in April with an opportunity for those chosen to attend a course abroad and my name wasn’t picked…
I’ve pondered and raved at no one in particular.
I’ve asked God and myself if I am really that dull. How can I say I am intelligent if I wasn’t chosen? Why would almost everyone say I write really well if my article wasn’t chosen for the competition and other works of mine have been turned down more times than I care to count.
Did I really hear God say greater or my ears were playing pranks on me?
What do you think?
Have you had cause to feel what I felt in the situations above?
Have you being turned down more times than you care to remember in your work place?
Has the greater marriage/relationship He promised arrived?
Are the testimonies rolling in or not?
I imagine you may also have been tempted to say things I was tempted to say like- “For Heaven’s sake, where is the greater you promised Lord”???
The reality doesn’t align with the word!
But then I am thinking, what’s really the reality?
The word or the situation?
A line from Jekalyn Carr’s greater is coming keeps ringing in my head and it says “many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord will deliver them out of them all because your greater is coming…”
So what is our reality?
The afflictions or the word?
I have resolved dearies, I don’t care what I see right now…
I don’t care how many rejections I get…
I don’t care that the great ideas for the business isn’t rolling in as it should…
I don’t care that the testimonies aren’t coming on after the fast…
I don’t care that my work isn’t applauded, that it seems like I get the “not good enough anywhere I turn”…
I don’t care that the man/woman, the God given spouse hasn’t arrived…
I don’t care about the thoughts in my head that tell me I am dull (which is so wrong by the way)…
THE WORD IS MY REALITY…
Will you resolve same too?
Do you still believe what He told us?
He didn’t promise that there will b no hiccups on the road but He promised that greater will come, regardless of whatever it may be. And let us rejoice in the trials anyway, I don’t think there will be testimonies if challenges were not conquered.
The word is our reality, not the situation, not the afflictions, not the circumstances we see right now…
The word is our reality.
The word says greater is coming, He says He will do greater things with us, in us and through us.
That’s the word.
That’s our reality.
Step into this week with that mind-set.
And that’s what we chose.
We chose His word for our reality.
It’s still March, 9months to go. It’s not the end of the year yet, greater is coming.
It’s even here now.
Notice the “today I will begin” in the screenshot up there? It really has already begun.
Believe that greater is coming, it is here.
Hebrews 11; 1
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
His word is our reality.
PS- I had to re-read these two posts again, http://wp.me/p3W2rB-ac and http://wp.me/p3W2rB-9o you can go through it too to stay on track, + I overdosed on Jekalyn Carr-Greater is coming+the word of God, ie, those on the “greater is coming post.
Let’s do this and make “the word” our reality indeed.
Do download and listen to Jekalyn Carr’s Greater is coming… for some reason, I cant share the song here and oh, please do share this post too, hit it on twitter, Facebook and all, let’s lift someone up.
Have a blessed greater week loves.
