What do you do if God is angry with you?
Have you seen His pillar?
What is blocking you from seeing it?
Please read Nehemiah 9:20
Vs. 19 “Because of your great compassion you did not abandon them in the wilderness. By day the pillar of cloud did not fail to guide them on their path, nor the pillar of fire by night to shine on the way they were to take.”
If your answer to the first question was “DUCK” you might be a legalist-LOL
Look at what God Almighty did even though His own people really ticked Him off-
He still led them!! He didn’t leave them in the wilderness all alone!! There was a constant sign during the day and night that He Never left them And You are His people since Christ!
So why do you think He would do that to you in your wilderness? Did God change? Do you think God is so weak or you are so bad that a relationship with Him is beyond hope?
Your wilderness is always part of His Wonderfulness!! Your wilderness is what builds His Wonderfulness by building Faith in the process – His process to create in your heart and soul and in my heart and soul The Heart of The Lover like no other – Jesus!
Please Always Remember this – ALL Righteousness is “By Grace Through Faith” and None by works of the law!
Once you get this, doors open and riches are revealed that only His compassion could be responsible for.
Keep in mind this passage was written long before the stripes of Jesus healed us to His side eternally. His Grace is sufficient for me and His LOVE NEVER leaves me! Now instead of a pillar of cloud or a pillar of fire He leads me with a pillar of Love each and every day- but I have to see it and guilt and shame will block it from your vision- that is why Grace is so important!!
Brothers and Sisters it took me many years and rivers of pain that I can’t begin to recount to begin to figure out just how Amazing His Grace really is- don’t let that time slip from you. There is a huge world out there that desperately needs you to shine His Love. Not by your effort but by His unending and never out of reach compassionate Grace.
Here is a meditation for your wilderness. Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed but if you are it might be your pillar of fire you need. Close your eyes take several deep breaths in and out and with each out breathe let God take away your stress just a little bit more. Begin to get a picture of God’s Love, whatever that looks like to you. Realize and understand that God is always leading us to Love because “God Is Love!!” As you get a picture of His Love for you do this:
Breathe in and say:
Breathe out and say:
“Is Gods plan”
Practice this until you can see that you are worthy because of the Love He has for you not the works you do.
