Daily Devotional – 3/12/15 “Get in the way of God!”

I told you on yesterday that you need to get up in order to get that which you are standing in the need of because sometimes you have to get in God’s way. Yea, sometimes you have to get in His line of sight to let Him know that you need what you’ve been asking for. Yea, when need a healing and your faith is strong enough to get the healing you stand in the need of, go get it. Don’t believe me, I got some witnesses. The woman with an issue of blood who toiled for 12 long years (Mark 5:25-34) – she got in the way of Jesus even when she didn’t try too, Blind Bartimaeus had no sight but He through his hearing, Jesus coming through Jericho (Mark 10:46-52) so he began to shout – He got the attention of Jesus – and he asked for healing and it was received. Not enough? Come here grandma, doctors had given up, had called the family in, getting ready to give last rites, they said sign the papers because we’ve done all we can do but we got in the way of God and we called on His name and she’s alive and well today. Come here sister, doctor said suicide disease that many haven’t survived, some still living with the devastating pain and can’t even leave their house, family has walked off and left yet we, and a whole heap of praying believers got in God’s way on her behalf, and she’s alive and well and living 85% pain-free and more on a good day. Come here momma who buried your only child and you thought you would lose your mind yet God sustained. Come here husband who buried your wife and thought you couldn’t make it alone yet you’re surviving. Come here single parent who is still making it even though you can’t even see how to make ends meet. Come here person with cancer, you who are living on dialysis, with diseases running through your blood yet you get in the way of God every day with your prayers and you’re still here. Come here Pastor who has more battles to fight dealing with Christians yet God always shows up and shows out allowing you to come out victorious even if you don’t feel like the winner!

Baby, thangs happen when you are in the way of God! What things? Glad you asked. You get what you ask for. Doors open when you knock (only the ones meant for you). Love finds you. Battles are already won. Your purpose is positioned. Destiny is determined. Vision is valued. Favor flourishes. Mercy is magnified, grace is glorified and your joy is justified! When you get in the way of God, thangs began to shift into position. You began to settle into your rightful place, your finances began to line up, worry begins to wither away, depression disappears, sickness and suffering is set right and your spiritual walk lines up with your talk! Oh, when we get in the way of God!

“Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.” Colossians 2:6-7
