The things that are invisible are more powerful then the things that are visible. Let me say again, "The things that are invisible are more powerful than the things that are visible" A long time ago, I accepted Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. Long time meaning about 12 years ago. As a young Christian, I made alot of mistakes, had alot of pride.............but even in the midst of that, God had given me the precious gift of faith. Faith is not something "we have" faith is something we receive from the Lord. As I look back on the period of my life where I was very new to my Christian walk, I grew to despise certain things about the period, because I was so prideful and I wished I could of done things differently. However, God has shown me recently that all that I have now is a harvest from the faith He had given me way back then. He is showing me not to despise that period in my life because of the mistakes, because even in the midst of mistakes, God looks at the intents of the heart and even in the midst of mistakes, it is possible to still be sowing in faith. My life is absolutely beautiful. Not "easy" but beautiful. After 8 years my marriage to my husband has blossomed into something I would of never thought was possible. A dream come true. My kids are amazingly blessed, and I get to be at home with them even though it is the hardest job on the face of the earth, I love every minutes of it. Right now, is the best time of my life. People looking into a window of my life. I don't know if they would agree, because my life looks pretty mundane and repetitive. It doesn't look very exciting. That's because the excitement in my life come through my walk with my Savior, my God, my Father. He is the "Lover of my soul". But I want to encourage myself and other in is that, while I despised areas of my life where there was sin, mistakes, and pride; God has shown me that I still had faith and I am reaping a harvest right now. The way my life and family is right is exactly how I prayed it would be back when I was still new to my Christian walk. I knew the life I wanted to life and I believed God for it. I went through some hard times, because I took some hard falls and I don't know where I was on the faith scale at that point, but that didn't negate the period of time where I was believing God for a certain type of life. I sowed in faith to the life I have now, years and years ago, but I went through periods of questioning all that I was believing God for, but I didn't loose what I sowed to just because I had periods of doubt. Now I have it. Don't stop believing, it may take years but you cannot stop believing God for His promises to manifest in your life. He will bring it to pass. I know it, just wait on Him.
This revelation from God has encouraged me to continue sowing in faith for the things for my future and the future of my family. I am not chasing these things that I'm believing God for, because if I keep my eyes on my relationship with Jesus, these things will start chasing me. Now, I just want to enjoy my relationship with God and my family. That's it!!! That's is where my contentment is, my satisfaction and my power. It is the best time of my life. Please pray for God to help you enjoy Him in every season, He needs to become your contentment. Satisfy yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. You don't have to go chasing things, they will chase you. Ask God to help you to taste Him and see that He is good. He will do it. He knows He is good, He knows He can satisfy you. Just ask Him.
