Rebuilding the Ruins

I focused once again yesterday on the Housing crisis in New Zealand which is personally impacting my life currently, through my adult children. But our Old Testament reading today from Isaiah is a beautiful description of God’s ultimate purposes to rebuild the ruins of not just our land, but our lives.

Have you ever lost sight of the goal? We need understanding and wisdom. . . . .beyond here . . . what makes you think . . .if you are not happy here . . . that you will be happy over there? THE ISSUE OF THE HEART IS THE HEART OF THE ISSUE.

When we loose sight of the goal, and take our eyes off the Lord, what we see will be obstacles and problems. Fear, doubt and worry distort reality. If it is over our heads, then we need to remember it is under God’s feet, God is in control.

Your attitudes, thought patterns, habits, behavior, and words BUILD WHO YOU ARE. Most of us never ACT BY FAITH we REACT TO CIRCUMSTANCES and EMOTIONS… Grow up… You do not have to lose your direction.

I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking to me about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers! - Isaiah 65:24

God is so good. GOD HAS A PLAN. God is moving even before we understand our needs? God will answer us before we even call to Him. But we do still need to call and should thank Him every day for all the problems that don’t happen, because he has already prevented them.

ARE YOU WAITING --- PASSIVE WAITING FOR PIE TO FALL OUT OF THE SKY… I AM WAITING FOR GOD TO CHANGE ME… I AM JUST WAITING UNTIL MY CHANGE COMES? BE HONEST? DO YOU NEED TO CHANGE? WHAT DO YOU NEED TO CHANGE?

It is pure insanity to think we can stay the same and keep doing things the same old things the same old way and expect a different outcome?

Have you ever identified what it is in your life that you need to change? BEFORE YOU CAN HAVE A PROGNOSIS to correct your problem, you must have a DIAGNOSIS of what is wrong? Ask your manufacturer. We need a navigation system to bring about change. I think the most important thing to remember is to keep our eyes on Him not on self, but go to Jesus in prayer and ask Him what can I do to help change what You think needs to be changed in my life? Because at the end of the day His will be done!
