Sometimes I struggle with feelings of inadequacy. Feeling like I'm falling SO SHORT of the Glory of God, that the Lord MUST not want to hear from me. That THIS time I've messed up too bad, and am an utter failure. A disappointment to my Father in Heaven.
When you don't feel strong enough, smart enough, or capable of doing what's in front of you for lack of WHATEVER....ASK THIS QUESTION, "WHO IS YOUR DADDY?!?" ...because I promise you HE IS ENOUGH, He is ABLE, and there is truly NOTHING BEYOND HIS POWER, so proceed with THAT confidence. Not with who you are, or what you can do of your own power, but of WHO'S you are...and what He's able and willing to do for those who love Him. What ever the challenge, no matter how daunting, say these words out loud; "MY FATHER NEVER FAILS!"
Over the years I've come to find myself getting excited by the fact that each challenge seems more impossible than the next, because I know it's put me in the unique position of having a front row seat, to see first hand what He's going to do. I know He's going to come through in VICTORY....however, the exact way it will be accomplished often remains a mystery, until the moment it unfolds. So I just stand in AWE of my Father in Heaven, releasing and decreeing what I already know to be true! I can't imaging living any other way...
A few years ago I found myself in a dark, seemingly hopeless chapter of life, with no logical reason to believe that God was going to come through with the miracle that I so desperately needed. I clearly didn’t deserve it. My circumstances were a direct result of my own disobedience and sin.
To live a life in God's presence, and then through that relationship with Him, to begin receiving revelation... is a powerful thing. However to understand the power of coming into agreement with what He says about you, is an entirely different level of supernatural experience.
At the same time all this is taking place, a work of righteousness is being developed and orchestrated in God's people. The loving, compassionate nature of Christ is being implanted and formed in our hearts. Hate in the world is making sinners more like satan. Love in the Christians is making us more like Jesus.
