So its 2013 and I don’t have a job me and my husband agreed that I would stay home and take care of our son. I was alright with that but now child #2 is on her way and that was not the plan but anyhow my husband wants me to stay at home with her as well. This is when I say enough is enough I started job hunting and would you believe there wasn’t one job I didn’t get but there was always a problem with scheduling or job requirements I stared getting frustrated and that frustration turned into thinking that God was not on my side. My husband saw my frustration and always say that things are happening the way they are suppose to happen then I came across a devotion called Horizontal versus Vertical. This devotion talked about making a move before God tells you to move and the implications. God is saying don’t move but wait on me and I now re-evaluate my thinking I consider myself very independent but God is saying STOP taking matters into your own hands see what I have for you instead. So the next time you encounter a lot of opposition ask God is this the way I should go?
Have you put all your dependence on God?
Horizontal Versus Vertical
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 1, by Os Hillman
A prayer of David.
for I am poor and needy.
2 Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;
save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God; 3 have mercy on me, Lord,
for I call to you all day long.
4 Bring joy to your servant, Lord,
for I put my trust in you.
abounding in love to all who call to you.
6 Hear my prayer, Lord;
listen to my cry for mercy.
7 When I am in distress, I call to you,
because you answer me.
no deeds can compare with yours.
9 All the nations you have made
will come and worship before you, Lord;
they will bring glory to your name.
10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
you alone are God.
that I may rely on your faithfulness;
give me an undivided heart,
that I may fear your name.
12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;
I will glorify your name forever.
13 For great is your love toward me;
you have delivered me from the depths,
from the realm of the dead.
ruthless people are trying to kill me—
they have no regard for you.
15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and graciousGod,
slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
16 Turn to me and have mercy on me;
show your strength in behalf of your servant;
save me, because I serve you
just as my mother did.
17 Give me a sign of your goodness,
that my enemies may see it and be put to shame,
for you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
