Distraction or Divine Assignment?

Distraction or Divine Assignment?

Remember…it’s about Divine Flow

Good afternoon all,

Yesterday morning, among a few other things, “my plan” was to write and share a post.

I had everything nicely scheduled when one of my sons asked if I could assist him with a matter that would take a significant amount of time and I immediately knew in my spirit that I needed to lay aside “my plan” and help him instead.

As I shifted “my plan”, the Lord reminded me that as Women of God, it is important for us to be dedicated to our goals, plans and commitments, but not to the extent where when presented with an “interruption” we doggedly hang on to them instead of pausing and seeking His wisdom and direction.

When “interrupted”, before saying or doing anything, it is critical that we pause and seek direction from the Lord with an open spirit, recognizing that there may be times when He tells us to deny the request and continue on with our plan because the request is actually a diabolical plan of distraction in disguise, or times when He tells us to temporarily lay aside our plan because the request is a divine assignment that He needs us to attend to.

The bottom line in all of this is that life in the Spirit is not about allegiance to our goals, plans, or commitments no matter how good, noble, or lofty they may be, but it’s about our allegiance to the Lord, about discerning His Will, and following His Lead in each situation…it’s about Divine Flow.

Even as I write, I recognize that His Flow for this post has changed direction. There’s been a definite shift away from what I originally intended to share. That word has become a “then word”, and this word has become a “now word”, fresh manna for someone’s soul today…it’s all about discerning and going with His Flow.

Women of God, God wants us to be mindful of flowing with His Spirit in every situation and circumstance, even if it means temporarily or even permanently interrupting our goals, plans or commitments because on this journey, it’s not about us, it’s about Him…His Word, His Will, His Plans. His Purposes…not ours.

So, moving forward, I challenge you to make a conscious, intentional decision to place each “interruption” you encounter before the Lord to determine if it is a diabolical distraction or a divine assignment.

Discern His will then follow His lead because it’s all Him and being in His Divine Flow.

Be encouraged!

The Journey Begins

The Journey Begins

Good morning,

Welcome to Unwalled Words!

The Journey

As women of God, I believe that when we hunger and thirst after God, after His essence, His presence, His being,

That when we hunger and thirst after His character being formed in us, His righteousness radiating from us, His will being done in and through us,

That when we invest time in His Word and prayer and incline our hearts to hear and obey His voice,

That when we seek to progressively discover and embrace who He is, His purposes, His principles and His plans,

That when we in essence say “yes” to Him in His entirety,

We position ourselves for incredible transformation and for the manifestation of His glory in our lives.

I believe it’s a time-tagged process, a magnificent unpredictable journey that begins with a “yes” and requires many subsequent yeses, sometimes difficult ones, but ends in priceless fulfillment and completion in His way and His time.

Thanks for joining me on this journey; I look forward to traveling with you.

Blessings,

Kim
