3:281 – How Is God Messing With You Today?
#faithbites #faithjourney messing
How is God messing with you today? I love this question and lately have been hearing it more and more. Have you heard this?
It’s not a bad thing at all. It makes you ask what is God putting in your heart and mind that makes you wrestle and struggle a bit. Maybe you had a plan to go one way and there is fork in the road. Perhaps, you came across scripture that made you question. Maybe someone in your life is challenging your thoughts and beliefs. These are some of the ways God messes with you.
He wants us to keep growing, learning, and deepening your relationship with Jesus.
How is God messing with you today?
- Hebrews 10:24-25 – And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
- John 16:33 – I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
God uses people to do his work. We see in Hebrews that we need to stir up each other to do good works and encourage one another. No stagnation here. Our friends are meant to challenge us, support us, and help us. God messes with us through challenge and invitation from our friends.
No matter how hard things get and how much God messes with us or Satan throws at us, we have peace in Christ as he’s overcome the world.
What does this mean? It means life isn’t going to be easy. God is stirring in you challenge, change, and wrestle. It is good to be in God’s word and wrestle.
I’m always struggling with my belief in doctrine but not in my belief in God. He wants me to become a more faithful servant of his.
So, one more time with feeling, how is God messing with you today?
Here’s an easy one for today. What is God stirring in your heart? Doesn’t have to be major, just something that you feel he’s calling you to do, say, or be. Write it down, pray on it, share it.
Hello God, thank you for messing with us. You challenge us daily. Let us see these challenges as good things from you and not things to bring us down. Your word tells us, in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
We love your challenges because eot shows that you want us to have a deeper relationship with you. Help us to continue to rise to those challenges. In your name, Amen.
