My Daddy is SO amazingly faithful!!! He is such a good, good Father and I am forever grateful!!! #MySurrender #HisWill #HisPlan #HisTiming
This was a recent status I posted on Facebook to share just how appreciative I am of my Lord, my Heavenly Father, my Daddy. Do you ever just sit back and think about ALL He has done for you. I mean ALL He has done. If not take a second and think about it now. If you can’t think of anything specific think of how He woke you up this morning, how you still have breath in your body, how you made it to work or your destination safely this morning. The list could go on and on. Now that I have you thinking, reflect over a prayer that you put up before the Lord, I mean something that you really wanted and/or needed and then think of His response to that request.
That’s what I want to focus on today. As I told you last week I have a lot up before the Lord that I want to accomplish in 2017, one of which came to pass last week!! (2017 is off to a great start! 🙂 ) This particular request I have desired for a long, long time. I mean we are talking 10+ years. I had put it on the back burner because it just never seemed like the right timing, or in all honesty I didn’t see how it could be done. I came back up recently around Christmas. I mentioned it to my husband but didn’t really press the issue because again I just didn’t see how it could be done. I decided to go about it a different way this time, I went to my Daddy with all sincerity and once again placed this desire up before Him. I would pray “Lord I don’t how or when you are going to do it but this has now moved from a want to a need. Lord we need a bigger vehicle”. It may not seem like a big task but seeing as though we are in the process of purchasing a home (it’s going to happen this year!) we really did not want to add anything else to our budget….But God!
Remember I told you this request stirred up again around Christmas. Well let’s fast forward a bit. About 2 weeks ago Hubby sent me a text about a truck and asked me if I wanted to go and see it. I’m like sure, no problem what’s the harm in looking. What happened, I fell in love with it! Again I spoke with my Daddy and said “I don’t know how or when, but Lord do it”. Long story short….HE DID IT!!! And when I tell ya’ll He did it, I mean He did it! Everything I have ever wanted in a truck He gave me just that. And the best part of all, this amazing blessing is not costing hubby and I an arm and a leg. He blessed us with this fully loaded, 4 wheel drive Suburban for less than half of the book value. Did you read that….less than half of the book value!!! When God moves, He moves and He makes the way easy!
Something that I have desired for over 10 years happened within a 3 week span of my earnest request and sincere faith. I felt like a kid in the candy store when I drove Black Beauty (yes I named her) for the first time. I wanted to scream, shout, cry, but most importantly I couldn’t stop saying thank you to my Daddy. This was all because of Him. He remembered my desire all those years ago, He heard my recent request and silent petitions that this is what I truly desired. And then He opened a mighty door and made the process so easy. It just feels my heart with so much joy to know that He cares that much about me. And I truly believe that this is only the beginning of many great things to come this year.
So as I close this post out today, I want to encourage you to continue to put your desires up before the Lord. Be up front and honest with Him, after all He knows the desires of your heart so there is no need to sugar coat anything. Once you have laid it out activate your faith like never before. Believe that if it is within His plan and His will then within His timing it will come to pass. However if it doesn’t happen when you desire, don’t fret, just trust and believe that He has something greater in store for you. Ask me how I know, because I’m a living witness. If He did it for me, surely He will do it for you!
