I was just looking back at my first post last year and declaring that I have such a fear of ‘not getting the miracle’, or the ‘promise’ that I know to be true that has yet to come to fruician that I have prayed for over and over.That if I believed AGAIN and it didn’t come to pass then I would feel that ache of disappointment once again. It is almost easier to ignore and let it be than to take a chance and pray.
At the beginning of the year I prayed for my ONE word. One word that I would stand on and strive for. It makes me swallow hard just thinking about this word that was given to me and I have YET to speak it out loud because AGAIN this fear, or lack of faith, whatever you would like to call it is there with a vengence. ESPECIALLY, when you get the word that keeps popping into my head.
FULFILLMENT, my one word that I want to whisper, yet knowing the Jesus that I serve can make it one hundred percent possible. It’s Not HIS lack of but my own faith that lacks.
I see three words in this word, isn’t that cool, 3 in one, full meal deal!
Full…..To be full of the word
Fill…..To be filled to the top with His Holy Spirit
Fulfillment…..His promises to me
Daniel 9:4 4 I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed: “O Lord, you are a great and awesome God! You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands.
(this spoke to me so much because my word for the past couple of years has been ‘obedience’)
Psalm 57:2 2 I cry out to God Most High, to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.
Psalm 105:19 19 Until the time came to fulfill his dreams, the Lord tested Joseph’s character.
( Yah, my character in this matter has definitely been tested or is being tested.)
Proverbs 13:12 12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.
I have got to stop deferring my hope and believe the God who says He can can and
the God that say He will will.
