Keep Waiting- Do not create counterfeits!

Good Courage

I saw the quote below on Heather Lindsey's blog. Heather is a minister, and she and her husband are Pastors of The Gathering Oasis Church.

You can name it, claim it, throw money at it, dance around it, scream, shout and wiggle but if it ain't time for God to open up that door, you may be SO focused on that area that the enemy sends you a counterfeit. That counterfeit will look like God's best, sound like God's best, have the best benefits plan & everything will look sparkly & perfect but you will have a little tug in your heart that says.. no. You see, it wasn't God's timing for that thing, so you ran ahead of Him & created an Ishmael while ignoring that tug that says no. God's best in ANY area takes great development, tests to uproot the garbage in you, trusting in the Lord, faith & rest. So, calm your rushed soul. HE has not forgotten about you.

I'm not sure why, but I have been really moved by scripture and texts on waiting. For whoever is in dire need of some good encouragement, the Lord says in Joshua 1: 9  "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go".

Do not get weary, do not give up because The Lord rewards those who diligently seek Him, and the effective fervent prayer of the righteous avails much!

Turn to Jesus and let Him do amazing things in your life!

He literally died to be your friend!
