In my last post, I mentioned that as a 31 and single woman I felt like the kid getting picked last for teams. And on Sunday, the pastor at Vive Church gave a word, and I know it was from God.. for ME. He talked about how good it felt getting picked on the winning team in school.
It was just amazing to see God hear my cry and give a word to help me change my perspective.
It’s not about me getting picked by a guy. It’s not about being married. It’s not about feeling last. It’s about being on His team. I am on the winning team with God. Shouldn’t that be satisfaction enough? And God chose me.
I always tend to focus in on this thing I don’t have in my life, but I just need to be satisfied in His love, His victory, and knowing the battle is already won. He has already given me His Promise. I need to stand and walk in His victory and be confident in who I am. Who God wants me to be. Who He is challenging me to be.
Clearly, this is a struggle for me. Like God opens me eyes and shows me He is ENOUGH for me, but then I get lost in the desires of heart, and I start listening to the lies of the enemy that God is withholding something from me. I want to be consistent in believing God’s promise, and I need to adjust my strategy for when the enemy comes around.
Anyway, the pastor’s word totally encouraged me, and so I want to encourage you. God hears you. He answers prayer. He LOVES you. You are special. He has a plan for you. He comes through in His Promises. He is the God of Miracles. Believe it, Stand firm in it.

7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
