Worship me for who I am, not for what I can do for you.
I know this might hurt…but….Ya’ll, God wants MORE from us than a prayer about our fertility. God wants more from us than ONLY worshipping Him when things are going well. God wants MORE (like ALL of us) regardless of the reading of a pregnancy test. I don’t know why this is on my heart this morning (God literally woke me up at 4:23 with this post!) but I just feel like I have to tell you to dig into your Word and discover God’s character & nature. God wants you to know HIM and worship Him for who he is. Not for what you want Him to do for you.
Ya’ll! I’m preaching to myself too! I actually attended a house prayer night around the end of 2015; where I was encouraged by a complete stranger to get in my Word and learn WHO God was and what his Word said about him. I’d spent a lot of time prior to that listing to podcasts, “sermons,” and teachings that were not sound doctrine. Unfortunately, that led to me having a incorrect view of God. I felt like God didn’t love me because I was fighting this battle of infertility. I felt like I had done ‘so much work,” for God and I deserved this answered prayer. LOL! I am so thankful for that night. This entire journey to motherhood has taught me so much about God.
From learning that He is God and Good EVEN when it doesn’t feel good. (Psalms 107:1) That he LOVES me forever, and his not answering my prayer in my time doesn’t change that. That he will be glorified in this, and work it out for my good. (Romans 8:28) That he is THE great Provider, Shepard, Protector, Healer, Comforter, Father, and so much more. (Matthew 6:33, Hebrews 13:20, Pslams 91, Isiah 53:5, 2 Corinthians 1:3-5, Romas 8:15) I want to encourage you ALL to get into your Bible. For yourself. And Let Him speak to you, through what He has already spoken. We have the Word of God, yet we neglect it and pick it up as our last hope. We have to do better ladies. God wants our heart, our lives, our desires… God wants our worship and praise ALL of the time. Even when you get that negative, the procedure fails, or the adoption falls through. When you don’t ovulate or when you conceive.
God wants to be God in your life, he wants a relationship with you. He doesn’t want to be your fairy godparent.
As you listen to this song, and worship.. I encourage you to just fix your mind on who God is. His character and his nature. WHO His word says He is. WHO He has already proven himself to be in your life before. Don’t focus on what you want him to do. Focus on HIM.
I love you sis!
