When God Could've, But He Didn't

 Often times we look around and see one set of footprints, and that is when we realize GOD has been carrying us along the way.

“God loved me, with patience he held everything from failure to victory. His grace carried me.” - Marvin Sapp

When I prayed and asked God to keep me from losing my mind while still on Active a Duty in the Air Force. He did it. When I was homeless in college, and sleeping from couch to couch I asked God to wreck me before I wrecked my life and he did it. When I prayed for 25 years for God to allow me to meet my Biological Mom he did it. When I left a comfortable 6 figure job to pursue Inflight Service as a Flight Attendant; I received 7 rejections along the way. But God carried me and allowed me to get that 1 YES. But when I asked God to heal my Mother, he didn’t do it. You see God could’ve but he didn’t. When I felt like I was making my way in life and life seemed to be looking up, God could’ve but he simply didn’t. It doesn’t take away from the sovereignty of who he is as God; it just forced me to trust him even more through the hurdles. 

There are some of you that are praying about a situation and it seems as though it’s dead and dying. But in death, growth is eminent. It’s not that he can’t do it. He just chooses NOT to. He wants to see you grow, mature and most of all live deeper for him. If we pursued God as much as we did the altar for a financial breakthrough or a miracle we would truly see things change. But until then he will continue to get our attention in any way possible. 

But in my troubles and trials I am SO glad Gods' grace carried me. Whether it was for the year I was homeless, the 6 years in the Air Force or the 25 years waiting to meet my mother. He held me close and would not let. He carried me and continues to carry me when  depression and grief step in. It’s by his grace and his grace alone we are all where we are today. 

My enemies prayed my defeat and I’m sure some are still praying but GOD continues to carry me gracefully. 

Will you let him carry you? I promise the trip will be worth it.
