Today's Coaching Moment - How Can You Know God's Will and Recognise His Timing?
One of the biggest things that keeps people from fulfilling their destiny is what they THINK they can or can't accomplish.
It's dangerous to rely on your own strength to bring about change in your life, and pursue your destiny. God needs to be the source of your strength. Yet you need to balance that with taking focused action, being proactive, and moving forward, or you run the risk of getting bogged down and staying stuck.
How do you decide what to focus on at any given time?
There may be periods in your life when God is teaching you lessons to help you grow in spiritual maturity. In those seasons it might seem as though there is a hold up when in reality God is training and maturing you!
You need to learn to recognize those times so that you can work WITH God rather than striving to accomplish something before its appointed time.
There will also be times when God is testing you and wants you to press on and move forward.
And there will be times when you ARE on target but the enemy is opposing you and trying to hold you back from pursuing the next steps. So being able to discern what is happening with timing is crucial.
I hope you know that racing ahead trying to get whatever you want and assuming it is God's will for your life is unwise and likely to result in great disappointment. Your destiny will unfold over time, and it will happen in God's timing.
Getting it right isn't always easy! Trying to rush ahead and make things happen NOW will result in frustration and discontent, YET you need to be sure that you ARE doing your bit by actively pursuing your destiny.
I meet a lot of people who are afraid to move forward because they don't want to make a mistake or do things outside of God's timing, so they end up doing NOTHING.
If you ARE afraid to move forward it could be lack of faith, fear of failure, unbelief, or an array of limiting beliefs that are holding you back, or immobilising you by leading you to believe that may be you haven't really heard God, or you've made a mistake, or it isn't God's timing.
Dealing with those negative thinking patterns involves work. It's like training for a sport or learning to play an instrument. You can't reasonably expect to do it well if you've only had a few lessons. To become good at it you need training and lots of practice until it became natural.
Think for a minute about something you want to accomplish or have in your life. Maybe you want a promotion, need a new car, want to train to be a counsellor or coach, feel led to attend a ministry training school, or write a book, or ... fill in the blank.
Whatever it is, decide on ONE thing then follow the steps below.
Pray about your ONE THING every day for a month. Ask the Lord what He wants to say to you about it, be sure to listen for His answers, write down what you hear, and put it somewhere you will see it.
Steps to Doing Things God's Way and in His Timing
I hope you find this helpful. I thrive on encouragement, please let me know how you get on.
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God," Philippians 4:6
