GOD WILL OR NOT GODS WILL IS THE QUESTION

On the raod again!

WHAT IS GOD TELLING ME.

     The question finally comes from my husband Tony, “What do you think Hun, should we move back to Michigan?”  This has been a question I knew would come one day and the day was here.  As I sat there shaking in my boots (okay flip flops) wanting to say yes and at the same time wanting to say no, I just stared at Tony.

     I knew one day we were going to move back to MI to finish some unfinished business and to be with Tony’s son, so why was that a hard question to answer. The selfishness in me wanted to say no because I didn’t want to leave my kids, grandbabies, family and friends. But the spiritual side of me wanted to say “Well it’s about time you ask that question and since you asked, YES I think it’s time we move back to MI.”  

     It had been a long and hard three years in NV for us, but all the same a growing experience. Who said you can’t grow things in NV? But still why was it a hard question to answer? The simple answer is, I was scared of moving out of Gods will. But that answer took me back to my original knowledge of knowing we moved out of Gods will when we left Michigan and one day we would be going back to MI. So where was God’s will for us? Was it in NV were after three years I felt like a sponge that was squeezed completely dry, finances was at it all time lowest, Tony not finding a job, me working feeling that the weight was all on my shoulder until God blessed Tony with another job and then me ending up in the emergency room and spending the night in the hospital doing test on my heart witch ended up being stress…(Go figure)  If we were in Gods will things in our life would not have been as they were. God wants to bless his obedient children.  He never let us drown, he kept our heads above water. The water at this point was just below the nose. For the last 3 years I was asking God “Okay God what is it you want me (us) to learn, or are you squeezing us dry to force us back to MI, just tell me oh and tell Tony too what it is we are or are not doing” with the panic tone in my voice (HELP WE ARE DROWNING!!!) So did I say yes or no? I said yes to Tony, and we said yes to God and placed it all in his hands. We had no jobs and no house to live in once we got back and reminded God of that fact then in faith we packed.

     Okay so that’s how I could tell we were not in Gods will for leaving Michigan and moving to Nevada. Now lets see and determine if moving to Michigan was Gods will. Here is a scripture that God gave Tony and I while we were praying about the move.

Zephaniah 3:20

20 At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home. I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes," says the LORD.

     Fortunes hum, okay, that will be good getting enough money to pay our bills. But to me this was not speaking money all the way around. This to me was saying he was going to restore our lives our ministry our hope our dreams and best of all restore us back to his perfect will. This earthly fortune (money) is not what makes me happy in life, but it’s knowing that my father is pleased with me and I am on the right road. And that his blessing (fortunes) will be supplying all our needs. AMEN, AMEN and AMEN.

     God is faithful when he says “I will supply ALL your needs” so before we had even left Nevada we had a house to live in free of rent and then 2 days after we got here I received a job, then 2 days later Tony received a job and I got another job that makes more money so the first job is a no go. We had friends supply our house with food. And he even gave us a second car because of all the traveling Tony and I will be doing. So I for sure know that we ARE in Gods will. Isn’t it grand?  

Philippians 4:19 

19And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

Matthew 6:25-34   25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

      This was a good hub. Sometimes it is hard to tell what God's will is. His fortunes may not be money though but even greater things than that. Best wishes for your move.

      I had problems myself when we moved from Michigan. I was surprised how loyal I am to this state.
