We have reached the final day of our exploration of three significant words that God gave me during a prayer time recently. This final day is when I hope our requests to Him will converge with heaven…Converge…this is our final word.
Converge: Come together from different directions so as eventually to meet. Gradually change so as to become similar or develop something in common.
Here is the portion of the prayer I wrote…
All held back and delayed seasons now converge upon us in one fail swoop. Blessings released now. Favor called upon now! Miracles manifest now! Mountain of debt and impossibility move now! You are flattened. Seeds planted, burst forth as fully formed trees now!
I know enough to know that God knows the seasons. He alone directs us when to sow and when to reap. He can change seasons when it seems impossible. He can move all things into alignment with His will.
Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap. Ecclesiastes 11:4
I move in heavenly timing…more and more I’m learning to ignore all other signs. When He says, “Go” I’ll go. When He says, “Stay” I’ll stay. When He says, “Plant” I plant. When He says, “Reap” I reap. He alone knows my heart. He alone knows His heart.
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written: “They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor; their righteousness endures forever.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-9
When we do as scripture states, we bring ourselves in to convergence with His Spirit. It causes breakthrough.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith. By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered Him faithful who had made the promise. And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore. Hebrews 11:6-12
We must bring ourselves out of fear and into faith. The kind of faith that ignores all other things and holds fast to the God of the universe. In Him alone, we will have all we need. Oh, don’t you just adore Him?!
