Real Relationships bring you prosperity!
Walking in that "in between" moment. The moment of what IS and what SHOULD be. What you know and what isn't. This blog isn't speaking about the promises of God but the relationships around you and the new revelation you receive.
As the picture below shows, it can be tight and tough to see the end of this moment and see into the beautiful depths of God's goodness for the next.
I believe there are FOUR things that can get us STUCK and stumped in this "in between" moment. We cannot let these snare us! Let's dig into them below!
First, I want to share some examples of what I am speaking of from my life. In March of this year the Lord laid on my heart that there was an inheritance that wasn't brought to completion from my family's past generations. He said that these can be brought forth and released now and into Cayden and future generations. He confirmed it with a book I bought randomly earlier in the year, Keys to Heaven's Economy by Shawn Bolz. As I picked it up, the first chapter read "restoring desolate inheritance". I was like, "yeah buddy!" So I should be seeing things shifting NOW as I am believing it, writing my declarations and saying prayers of thanks and KNOWING it's done! Of course, that was not so. So I have had to learn how to handle the "in between" moments with this.
Another example is with my friends. Let's say I see the "potential" in my friend. That they are called to be an apostle, spiritual mother, singer, youth pastor, etc. I see what they are created to do and see the 'power filled' talents in them. But they may not see the same, they may be in process or they are dealing with fears and lies from the enemy. So handling the in between moment of what you know should be and what is now with them. Staying connected and loving them through it (& myself) is the answer instead of agreeing with one of the snares below.
So here are the snares that I have struggled with through my "in between" moments.
1. Abort & Give up. We may say, "this is too hard & crappy", "that person cannot possibly be the one for me", "there is no way they will be called to do that, insane!", "this revelation is such heresy I won't even listen to it!" So we stop short of completing the transition, in between moment, and we walk away.
2. Bitterness & Resentment. We begin to look at and blame others and ourselves. We make statements like those in #1 and we get bitter.
3. Judge & Accuse. We begin to bring judgement to those around us and accuse them of their incompetence. This, of course, in turn brings judgement to us and isolation.
4. Rebel & Get Loud. We act out for attention. We try to make it happen, get people to see and change. We rebel and it can get ugly!!! This can be loud or quiet. Manipulation is manipulation. It's done with words or with no words. Again, this is U G L Y!
So how can we WIN with the "in between"? How can we make sure all those around us become and stay RICH relationships for us!? How can we handle the revelation that has been given to us? Here are three points below:
BELIEF. UNDERSTANDING. TRUST.
A. BELIEVE. Let's remember our spirituality. It seems many who are in the "in between" forsake what we believe in. The cross of Jesus & HIS trust in you & in me for this world to be redeemed! He is on our side. He is interceding for us and He has sent Holy Spirit to REVEAL and LEAD us into all truths! ASK HIM about your emotions, feelings, and the things in the "in between".
B. UNDERSTAND. GET understanding.... it's not always an instant revelation. So it will take some ACTION on your part. SEEK it. ASK the other person for it. ASK Holy Spirit for truth and SEEK the scriptures that divide between soul and spirit :) 1 Tim 6:20
C. TRUST. This is a hard one. There is so much to learn about trust with God and with those we walk with on earth. Trust doesn't always have to be EARNED. If that was the case, we wouldn't need FAITH. So just as we have FAITH to TRUST in God we need FAITH to TRUST in GOD for those He puts us with. Our peoples, those we serve and those who serve us.
Hope you enjoyed this blog and have found it to be helpful! If you are totally upset with me and disagree, AWESOME! Please please let me know! I love having opportunities to talk with those that have another perspective and possibly some insight on where I can learn or where I may be wrong. So SPEAK UP!
