Why is My Life stagnant?


Article from: leahpatriz.com

The Lord put in my heart to just reach out to some of us that feel like we are not elevating in life and we feel stuck and maybe don’t know why? It can be really frustrating to see you plans are stuck and somehow within your power there is nothing you can do about it! It really sucks. Some of us don’t even know that’s why we are in distress. But we are busy distracting ourselves doing things God didn’t tell us to do like; getting a new job and leaving the one God had called us to do; moving from course to course in uni; transferring school to school; moving careers; taking up a new business idea and leaving the stagnant one;getting useless friends that keep you busy in sin; getting into bad relationships that God didn’t tell us to be in… (Insert yours here) so what to do?

The definition of stagnant on Google is; showing no activity; dull and sluggish or a (of a body of water or the atmosphere of a confined space) having no current or flow and often having an unpleasant smell as a consequence. I want us to focus on the second one; there is no flow this no movement and thus it stinks! No one wants to be there… Ok let’s look at what the Israelites who were stuck in the desert for 40 years. Of all the places it was in the wilderness; realize no one gets stuck in a good place it’s always in an unpleasant place. Also the kept going round the same mountain over and over; notice that they were still moving in actual sense so this may symbolize the fact that you keep making your own moves from course to Course or job to job because you can’t elevate in your current state but you notice that even in your new business venture you still are not making more sales… The Israelites had disobeyed God and so they were caused to go round the same mountain. Could your sin be causing you to stay away from God because you feel cannot support you after what you did? Lies! God loves you… You just need to shut down these thoughts from the devil and seek forgiveness from God. He will give it to you! I assure you!

Or is it because you have been asking God to instruct you; show you what to do and you will obey just like what the Israelites told Moses; but then you always never follow His instructions. It’s too hard; why should I wait?; why not what I wanted?; but my friend said that doesn’t work? I already tried that? Remember the fisher men that Jesus found that had not gotten even one but when He told them to throw their nets back into the water one more time. They knew that because He was the messiah they had to obey. So they did and got many fish. If they argued with Him saying that we already did that, my friend told me it doesn’t work like that God… They could have missed out on a big catch… You could miss out on your next big thing! He is wise God, and He finds our knowledge primitive, the Word of God says lean not of your own understanding and in all you do trust in the Lord it also says “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Another reason could be God already gave His instructions but you were not in a position to Hear Him? You were busy moving into a relationship you weren’t told by Him to be in. So you were moving from bed to bed with men instead of being pure in His presence listening to the most High King. {See my Blog Here on how to hear & spend time with God } Remember when God told Abraham to leave His Home and go to the land He had given to him. It took Abraham 5 years to follow Gods instruction andGod never spoke to Him till He got to Canaan. Here we learn that He doesn’t give you another instruction till you heed to His last one. So do you feel like God is quiet and is not talking to you anymore? Could have instructed you and you didn’t hear Him or you did but your stubborn? How do you get out if you didn’t Hear Him? Well, seat before the Lord and ask Him to give you the instruction again and be obedient. God gives instructions to be obeyed!

Okay so let’s stop being stagnant! Let’s stop distracting ourselves with ungodly things!lets stop being stubborn and arguing with God! Let’s walk by faith and not by sight! Let’s not lean on our own strength but of a God that has never being defeated! Let’s always be in a position to hear God… If you want a post on this comment below… Listen to God, Spend time with God and Obey Him!
