Here is a good song for you to listen to - read the words - some are hurting financially and can't understand why we have to walk this hard road - GOD WE NEED YOU NOW - Hold on HE is, the great I AM is speaking in that still small voice He is giving you strength to carry on - He knows we need Him NOW!
I sure understand where you are at today in this Dinar Walk of Faith. We ALL have learned new levels in faith, hope and trust that we can continue to use for HIS GLORY in the days to come. Today I want to share a teaching that I thought may be beneficial to each of us as we learn not just to believe God's word but to be dependent on His word.
Believing and depending are not the same thing.
Years ago there was a very famous tight rope walker named Blondin. He would often amaze people by walking on a wire over incredible heights. On one of these occasions, he was performing his act over Niagara Falls. A huge crowd was watching as Blondin moved confidently out over the churning waterfall and back. Turning to his onlookers, Blondin asked, “Who thinks I can push a wheel barrel across this wire?” They all shouted, “Yes, we believe you can!”. And so he did. On returning, he asked again, “Do you believe I can push a man across in this wheel barrel?” Again the crowd shouted in great confidence, “Yes!” Then Blondin said, “Which one of you will get in?”

That is the difference between believing and depending. It was easy for the people to say, “We believe you can do it!” Quite another thing to climb in the wheel barrel and depend on him to do it. Where are you, in your praying? Are you in the crowd shouting, “God can do it?” Or are you in the wheel barrel praying, “God, I’m depending on You.” Depending prayer can be scary, but it’s also the most rewarding. Let’s all hop in God’s wheel barrow, and live the adventure!
Dependency Checklist: How can you tell if you are just believing in prayer, or really depending on prayer? Consider these questions as someone who is in God’s wheel barrow.
-Do I feel vulnerable? -Being in a wheel barrow on a tight rope is a scary deal, even if God is the one who’s pushing.
-Do I have an alternative? Once you are out on the wire, there is no other way, you don’t have a plan “B”.
-Am I willing to accept whatever answer God gives me? – A wheel barrow passenger has no rights, he does whatever the driver says.
-Am I carefully listening for His answer, or instructions? – You bet you are! Your life depends on hearing anything He says.
-Am I tuning out all other distractions so I can focus on Him? Absolutely, the roaring water, the cheering crowd, all fade away as you train your ear on the Master’s voice.
-Do I have hope that God can make a way? Of, course! You would never get into the wheel barrow unless you had faith that He could get you across.
The dictionary description for “depend” is, “To rely, to place trust or confidence.” King David, in the Old Testament, was someone who fits this description. Over and over again he relied on, “the God of heaven” while facing hopeless difficulties. As a young boy he had to confront a lion and bear to protect his sheep. Each of these struggles prepared him for greater challenges. He was offered armor by Saul and he refused it and rather decided to decided to believe God as His word that if we believe God will cause us to defeat our enemies in battle. So he depended on God to be true to His word and He was. David killed Goliath with one stone and he had 5 more in the bag to kill Goliath's brothers if they showed up. Dependency on God's promises guarantees results in our favor every time.
While you and I wait for the call to say it's time to exchange our Dinar, lets operate on dependency in God’s promise to us... EVEN THO IT TARRY, IT WILL SURELY COME SUDDENLY!
Jesus, we embrace You as our Burden Bearer. We name this burden of waiting on the Wells Fargo Exchange and revaluation of the IQD and we release this into Your care. We thank You that You daily bear our burdens. We thank You that Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. We are so used to working things out on our own that we realize now we need Your help so we can depend on You more. We are sorry for all the times we have tried to bear our own burdens-not leaning on You.
Lord we need Your peace that surpasses our understanding in this time of waiting, we want to believe and depend on Your Word as you have spoken about this season we are in, so according to Your Word we open our hearts and receive it from You. We have cast our cares about this IQD process on You, and we are grateful that this peace will guard our hearts and minds. Thank You Jesus for being a Burden Bearer and we receive a heart of expectancy that in YOUR perfect time, our blessing shall come! Blessed be Your holy Name, Amen and Selah!
