God is a restoring God

by | Feb 21, 2019 | Faith, Morning Meditation

Good morning Beautiful! No matter what you’ve been through, our God is a restoring God always. Your blessing on the other side will be bigger than any burden. So what do you do while you work and wait?

God wants you to have a spirit of positive expectation. On the flip side, you also must know how to remain humble when your positive expectations are fulfilled. When I pledged my sorority in college, our big sisters warned us about remaining humble. They told us not to let the excitement of the moment go to your head or change who we were. The same applies to us when God blesses us. Your season of blessing that you’ll receive will overwhelm you with gratitude, and you must stay grateful.

For a moment, right now, just imagine what you’ve been praying for coming to reality. Imagine experiencing that blessing and think about how it will feel. When God gives it to you, He wants you to remain grateful. You’ll need to commit in your heart to:

1. Keep (and even increase!) your daily prayer and devotion practice going regularly

2. Keep being gracious with the people who are still dealing with the thing that you are delivered from – don’t judge or be harsh

3. Keep taking moments throughout the day to express your gratitude to God for WHO He is, not just WHAT He’s done

4. Remain more attached to God than you do to your blessing – keep God first, and don’t let the blessing become your idol

These are just a few things that you should focus on while anticipating your blessing, so you’ll be ready for it when it arrives! God blesses those who prepare to receive the blessing, and He blesses those who will remain humble and full of gratitude after the blessing arrives.
