Just Name It and Claim It

I know the heart behind “name and it claim it.” I believe it’s honorable. I want to be counted in the Hall of Faith alongside Abraham “who believed and it was attributed as righteousness.” But, y’all, the direct words of God spoke the impossible to him and made it happen. I believe that’s happening today because God has chosen and spoken to specific individuals that what He has said will ultimately fulfill His purpose for them and give Him glory in this world. However, just because it’s what I want doesn’t mean I’ll get it. My not getting may actually be what he uses to fulfill His plan for me and get the most glory from.

It’s Never Easy: When Doing Right Feels Like Losing Everything

But here’s the thing–God didn’t promise an easy life. Nothing about what He asks is EASY. Yes, (I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again), His ways are simple, but they are in no. way. easy.

Why Does God Hate Me?

“Why does God hate me?” is the question I feel like asking those closest to me. When God knows what I dread the most, hears my prayers, but still allows that thing to happen… I don’t know about you, but it hurts. It hurts to know that an all-powerful God can place his hand on any situation and make it turn out differently but doesn’t. And no matter what that situation ranges from — a relationship, a job, a loved one dying, or finances — it doesn’t change that it hurts. Whatever situation you find yourself in while reading this, it hurts. I acknowledge that. Continue reading Why Does God Hate Me?
