Accountable to God: The Movement

Today I had my first radio interview on my book , Accountable to God, On The Review with Joy & Company.  The Review provides a platform for authors of faith-based literature to discuss and promote their books. 

I thoroughly  enjoyed the questions and testimonies that stemmed from their review on the book.  It was amazing see that even though this book was written years ago, it is being promoted and shared at the right time.  I am so grateful that God trusted me with this assignment.  I am elated  about this Accountable to God "movement", because it keeps us focused on what's most important, our Souls! 

Accountable to God, will challenge you to seek after God's purpose for your life. We are not our own, but we were bought with a price.   ( 1 Cor. 6:20)

The body that we occupy, and the time that we live in are on loan.  It's time to be about our father's business.  I want to owe nothing to this body when I'm gone, How about you? 

Join the "movement"…Be Accountable to God

Tired of Waiting

Can you remember as child having to wait on a promise that your parents made? It was one of the hardest things to do.   Whether it was your birthday gifts, a planned vacation, or just a visit to an amusement park for the summer.  We hated waiting!!  Waiting was especially hard when our parents would NOT give us a date or time!  I can recall bugging my mother every chance I got asking her  WHEN???   I'm sure many of you parents can relate to that now with your own children.  It can be so annoying to have your kids focus on when something is going to happen vs. what they should be attending to right now.  As children of God we don't behave much differently.  

God's gives us promises to give us hope, and something to look forward to. A promise is also given to help settle our minds, so we can focus on what God wants us to do today.    In Acts 1:7 Jesus was encouraging His disciples to "wait' for the promise of the power of the Holy Ghost. During this time they were more interested in knowing when the kingdom of Israel would be restored, and Jesus said to them; "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority, BUT you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you", and you shall be witnesses to Me all over the world. 

Wow!  I love how Jesus can divert our attention, and bring it back where it should be.  In other words  He's saying, don't worry about MY business, here is yours: you will be filled with Power to do my will on the Earth. The knowledge of When ,Where, and How something will happen belongs to God alone.  He doesn't want us to focus too  much on the promises that ARE coming, but the work of obedience that is required of us right now.  

Don't Worry, It's Coming. The promises, the gifts, everything has already been prepared and it's just a matter of time!

An Appointed Time…

We pray. God hears. He answers.  We, by faith WAIT on the answers to our prayers. We ask, "why is it taking so long?"  God's response:  "It is for an appointed Time".  

Ahh the mystery of "The appointed Time".  I believe many of us would have little problems with waiting until the appointed time, if we knew when that was.  The issue with God revealing a time to us, is that, time doesn't apply to Him.  From God's perspective it is already done.  God inhabitants time and space.  So unlike us,  God does not need clocks,calendars and day planners. What He does need is our Faith. 

Our job is to focus on God, and not the time it is seemingly taking for Him to answer our prayers.  Habakkuk 2:3 says, for the vision is yet for an APPOINTED TIME; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie, though it tarries, WAIT FOR IT.  

While we wait, we are focusing on God's character, praising Him for who He is. We are thanking  Him for what He's done, and IS doing  right in front of us.   Live in the Present, with God, because He has already secured your future.
