God is always moving and always working. He moves before us, behind us, next to us, around us, and for us. He works when we feel down. He moves we’ve fallen ill or have a bad day. If we can’t feel Him move, keep holding on. We don’t have to feel Him move to see if He is still working on us. If you think you didn’t hear back from God, tighten your faith and take this to heart, He did get back to you. He moved. Not away, but closer to you and what His will serves to you, or whatever you asked Him. You’re not going always to see what He’s doing or feel His extraordinary abilities. Just know that He heard you and all you need to do is reassure yourself you were heard and not forgotten.
Amid our troubles and trials, our thoughts and situation will dictate the next step forward if we let it. It is vital to keep our gaze on God. He will be able to get us through our trial in a transforming yet growing manner. “We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne” Hebrews 12:2 (NLT). “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world” John 16:33 (NLT). Staying on the path of our troubles without giving it to God will dictate many things. When we fix our eyes on God, we see nothing in doubt, our faith unwavering, and our hearts steadfast. (But that’s not to say we will have times we will doubt, however, it is determined on our level of belief we subjected ourselves to about God that we even have to doubt about Him doing something or in general. In brief, doubting will not get us anywhere with God). Our eyes need to stay fixed. In other words, don’t put so much focus on the circumstance or instance that is occurring. Instead, place it upon God and let it be. God will do everything He can do.
If you haven’t already realized, He is a God that moves. That, even when we don’t see or feel it He is moving. He is still moving. Doubting is a significant hindrance you put on God, likewise limiting Him. Don’t doubt or put a limit on the absolute potential He has. You have to believe He is moving because you’ll miss Him if you don’t. God can move anything big or small. “Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the LORD drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided” Exodus 14:21 (ESV). “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible” Matthew 17:20 (NLT).
The areas He moves in are endless; Himself working for us is something we cannot comprehend. When we are waiting for God, He moves things we know nothing about. “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him” Philippians 2:13 (NLT). Most importantly, there needs to be more rejoicing. There should be more prayer for your situation than making it the issue of a new day. There should be more humbleness and gratefulness than complaining, more faith than fear. There should be more leaning back into the LORD. Lastly, more time praising God, tighten your trust in Jesus and know for a fact that we all who are in Him are protected. He has everything under control.
To allow God to move you to where you need to be, you must become a bolder ‘you’ and obey Him. It starts by trusting God with your life. Let Him take you through uncomfortable obligations and situations with humility even if you don’t like how it feels requires sacrifice. Everything He does is perfect, so, for us, we will see no change or boldness that will come from living for God if there is doubt or no work that shows Him you’re trying. Your faith should be firm and your vision bold. Regardless, He is constantly moving and working in us even if we may know it or not at all at most times.
