Welcome to Faith Filled Friday! Grab your coffee and your strand of faith for some heart-to-heart truths from Jennifer!
Repeat after me….Nothing is impossible.
I have always loved the story of Joseph, starts in Genesis 37. God revealed his purpose to him at a young age. Unfortunately, those around him didn’t understand what his dreams meant and took matters into their own hands.
Every time I read the story I am in awe on how God uses our “bad situations” to lead us right to where He wants us to be. I don’t know about you, but if my brother put me in a hole and sold me off as a slave I’d be pretty PO’d. Maybe he was and that detail isn’t included but Joseph went on to live life with integrity and purpose. He believed he had heard from God… his purpose was to preserve the nations of Israel. He may not have known that was the end goal but I think he felt it in his heart.
Whether he was in a hole in the ground or being falsely accused, he was living in God’s perfect will. His assignments came with his journey. It’s the same for all of us. The journey can be full of uprooting (physical or emotional). This stirs things up and gets us moving. Water that has been sitting too long is no good; it’s stagnant. This happens when no water is being drawn out. None of us have been called to produce stagnant, murky water.
Another truth that has settled in my heart is this: When God wants to change your life He will give us a picture of what could be. All we have to do is start walking towards it. Provisions will come, our assignment comes from the journey as well as the equipment. We just need to be willing, full of faith in Him and have the heart of a servant.
Don’t take my word on it…read Hebrews 11. It’s been called the Hall of Faith.
“The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.” Hebrews 11:1-2
If you look at the life of Joseph…nothing is impossible. Trust in Him to see you through! Trust in Him that your life has meaning and purpose. Trust in Him that nothing in your life is impossible to overcome.
