Family : God cannot resist…
There are two fundamental things for which God extends His arms out and acts in our favor: the Clamor and the Sacrifice!
The clamor is a “shout” for justice, accompanied by a Revolt. At that moment, the “desire” of the soul goes beyond the human limitation and “tears” the heavens, arriving directly to God.
How many times in moments of pain and dire need, did the clamor end a great battle inside and outside of us?
Not always does it mean an instant response, but without no doubt it expresses our confidence in God and reveals the dependence of His action in our lives. And that is why the relief comes immediately!
And the sacrifice is the ultimate expression of that surrendering… an extent of the living faith; a silent clamor that stirs our structure due to higher goals.
And the answer to surrendering without reservation can only be, from God, the wonder, the miracle, and the manifestation of the impossible coming true!
God cannot resist these two aspects! Never a true clamor accompanied by an expression of Faith, will stop having results with Him who can do all things.
So my friend, even if you are facing a big fight within yourself, with your children or family, do not forget that you have several “weapons” at your provision, but the most “direct” way to reach God, are not through your tears – or you would have already been answered -it is not despair, let alone accommodation. God rejoices in our strength when we clamor to Him, and in the sacrifice that we are willing to do to achieve the answers to our faith.
“… for the joy of the Lord is your strength” (Neh. 8: 10)
Do not let life’s problems suffocate you. From the moment you set yourself to clamor and to sacrifice to God, know that He already has prepared the answer in your favor.
And you know why? Because there is no way for someone to Clamor and Sacrifice to God, with true wholeness of spirit, if they really do not have the full assurance of faith! The act, in itself, already reveals the necessary confidence to get answers! The secret is to persevere believing, continuously, without doubting.
That’s what turned seemingly ordinary men, in the past, to true heroes of faith. And it is this same bold faith that God expects us to apply in our lives today, within our home, among our loved ones and friends!
We all have reasons to Clamor and Sacrifice. What are yours?
“Offer to God thanksgiving,
And pay your vows to the Most High.
Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”
(Ps. 50: 14-15).
