I am overwhelmed. Today was an amazing day. Filled with ups and downs and crazy emotion. I gave God an ultimatum today. I don’t give God ultimatums. I don’t ask for signs. It is just usually not a part of my story. It is the coming to CR part and the today part. God fulfilled His end of the bargain. A bargain proposed only by me. I have decided His answer has bought Him a week. One week. How is that for learning to be controlled by the Spirit?
I gave myself my birthday present to me today. It met I had to say no to community with people in order to have time focused on God, but it was worth it. A couple times today I managed to refocus on being controlled by the Spirit – not by the fear I allow some things to have over me. It is good to be getting more balanced and able to focus on Him!
My God is a mighty warrior. There is no longer a way I can lie to myself about His work in my life. I am so glad He loves me. I am so glad for the type of God He is. My God, a mighty warrior!
David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.” – I Samuel 17:45-47
