When God Says Go – S2E4

You may ask, “When God says go; what does that have to do with me?” Well, if you are anything like me, there have been times when I’ve made plans and nothing happened as I planned it. You know, the following old Yiddish proverb speaks to that point. It says, “We plan, God laughs.” 

Now, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make plans. But more importantly, we should consult God about our plans. When God says go is another way of saying, get and follow God’s directions before proceeding with your plans. So, let’s look at what scripture says about it.

GOD’S WAY – S2-DE4

Lady V’s Weekly Devotional 

Later, Jesus appeared again to the disciples beside the Sea of Galilee. This is how it happened. Several of the disciples were there—Simon Peter, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples. Simon Peter said, “I’m going fishing.” We’ll come, too,” they all said. So they went out in the boat, but they caught nothing all night. 

At dawn Jesus was standing on the beach, but the disciples couldn’t see who he was. He called out, “Fellows, have you caught any fish?” “No,” they replied. Then he said, “Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you’ll get some!”  

So, they did, and they couldn’t haul in the net because there were so many fish in it. Then the disciple Jesus loved said to Peter, “It’s the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his tunic (for he had stripped for work), jumped into the water, and headed to shore.

Set Free from Abuse – S2E3

Believe it or not, there are quite a few people who need to be set free from abuse. In fact, there are people in abusive relationships who don’t even realize it. For one thing, when most people hear the word ‘abuse’ they only relate it to physical harm.

Abuse is not just physical 

Domestic Violence Power and Control Wheel.
The Power and Control Wheel gives clear examples of abuse.

But sadly, that is not the case. In addition to physical harm, abusers often use verbal and/or emotional abuse tactics. Furthermore, abusers use those tactics to intimidate, manipulate, and control another person. 

So, when we look at abuse from that viewpoint, a person can be in an abusive relationship totally unaware.

The Refreshing – S2-DE3

Lady V’s Weekly Devotional

O God, you are my God: I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water. 

Psalm 63:1, NLT 

Devotional 

Much like David, we can find ourselves in a wilderness, lacking and searching for something to quench our thirst and refuel our fire for living. Sometimes, you may feel like you’re alone in this, struggling in life with its many tugs and pulls. And, you need some help to continue on your journey. 

 The exhaustion can take its hold on you and you can feel EMPTY. You are about to give out, feeling weak with every step. Without a doubt, you’re spiritually weary from all the worry, and you’re tired.

The Divine Delays in Life – S2E2

First, if you are like me, there have been times when you asked or prayed for something to happen but it didn’t happen right away.

Of course, in those times the question was, “Why is it taking so long,” or “Is it even going to happen?” Nonetheless, there was clearly a delay.  

So, let’s look at the definition of delay. It means to put off to a later time; to defer; to postpone. Now, a divine delay, on the other hand, is when God intervenes on a person’s behalf.

In other words, everyone falls into one of the three stages mentioned above. But what part does faith play in the whole scheme of things?

Jesus Is In Your Boat – S2-DE1

Lady V’s Weekly Devotional 

They all got into a boat and began to cross over to the other side of the lake. And Jesus, exhausted, fell asleep. Suddenly a violent storm developed, with waves so high the boat was about to be swamped. Yet Jesus continued to sleep soundly. The disciples woke him up, saying, “Save us, Lord! We’re going to die!”

But Jesus reprimanded them, “Why are you gripped with fear? Where is your faith?” Then he stood up and rebuked the storm and said, “Be still!” And instantly it became perfectly calm. The disciples were astonished by this miracle and said to one another, “Who is this Man? Even the wind and waves obey his Word.” 

Matthew 8:23-27 TPT
