We have been in a fight for several months now over the house we are in. We got behind in payments due to choices made last year, choosing a sick child over the mortgage payment. So we find ourselves in a loan modification need area. We have a lawyer working on our behalf.
It got pretty rocky yesterday and I caught myself saying, well if it isn't God's will then we'll move (or something like that). But that isn't good theology. That is practical humanly-thought-worldly thinking theology. Read the above verse. Jesus says whatever we ask and not doubt in our hearts will be granted. Anything!
Now, if it was harmful to us or harmful to others God wouldn't grant it. But I think there is a whole lot more freedom in God's will than we realize.
So, I'm not going to doubt at all anymore. I know God can do it. And I also know I am not tied emotionally to this place in a wrong way. I know it's God's. It belongs to Him. We will stay here as long as necessary for His will to be done. And I don't think He's ready for us to move yet. The Holy Spirit wants to explode onto our little town of Blunt. I just know it!
Glory! Don't, don't, don't accept practical thinking over faith thinking. God is way bigger than that! Don't limit Him.
