God Inspired Words from Ms. Joy

These words really touched me. My friend foureightytwo sends me these words from her friend Ms. Joy at least once a week or once every two weeks. I think God has blessed her with a tremendous talent. Jesus is definatly speaking through her.

Words From Ms. Joy

"In the last few months I have noticed a good deal of people moving. Some are moving to another building in the apartment, some are moving out of the apartments and others are moving out of state. It became apparent that God was trying to show me something so that I could also share it with you. Then earlier this week my mother felt that God wanted us( God's people) to hear a direct order to NOT MOVE. I began to think on this and thought well He could be referring to people moving out of their residence, out of their careers, out of relationships, decisions that have been made, or their self driven dreams. I believe its all of the above....wouldn't you agree. I mean think about your current position right now. Is there something you want to just give up on and MOVE away from? But your selfish desires won't let you move? What about those of us who were told to go one way by God and its hard to stay there after having made the decision to obey. Even the situations when your patience is running thin and your stress level is increasing by the day because the home or position you are in now is causing you more problems then their worth.
What could be in store for you if you just hold on and NOT MOVE before God tells you too? What could happen if you did not jump back into matters of the past and chose to let go and let God.
Wouldn't it be a slap in the face if you moved on your own and then God showed you what He had in store for you if you would have just trusted him. Think about Job when every problem was coming at him it seemed like it would make sense for Job to waiver and move away from his faith and trust in God, right? WRONG! Job knew that he could NOT predict the future and even in those trying and tempting moments when even his wife was trying to move him away from God that he knew he had to hold on. Because his life was no longer his but God's.
Don't you want to make it to the end of your personal story book? You know the part when God shows you that your faithfulness paid off. When God begins to open doors that you thought could never be opened because of your past. When fear overwhelms you and God reminds you of what Moses told the Israelites in Deut. 31:6, " Do not be afraid or terrified...for the Lord goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you." The decision to NOT move can sometimes put you on the edge of the fence because you spend too much time looking at yourself, the issues and the symptoms but God wants you to keep your eyes on Him so he can pull you through. Take it from Paul in the Bible when he says:
"And so, one thing I do. I forget what happened yesterday, and I keep my eyes on what is ahead. I press on to win the prize that God is keeping for me - and that is to share in an everlasting life overflowing with love and happiness with Jesus."
Moving or remaining in your comfort zone just isn't worth missing out on your blessings.
Fear can cause a great deal of us to want to move before the Lord clears the path. Fear can cause each of us to stumble back into our past before God finishes restoring our future. Fear can cause YOU to miss out on your blessing because as my daddy often says "you allowed Satan to push instead of God to lead. Fear is simply False Evidence Appearing Real and your Ego ( Edging God Out) keeps you entangled in fear."
Not knowing is hard which is why building your faith is a constant need in each of our lives. Its easy to think we know ALL the answers instead of trusting and committing ALL our ways to Him. Don't move out of your destiny all because you think you have a better plan. Let Christ do the rearranging, moving and leading while you just remain still and know that He is God ( which makes Him omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent in every aspect of your life).
Pride comes before the wrong move,
Ms. Joy "
