God’s Heart and God’s Words. Our Heart and Our Words. — The Lord can seem like a contrarian at times, but His creativity establishes the blessing of dependence on Him and intimacy with Him. As we understand His heart, we learn to accept His love and to be empowered. Such empowerment is given to us by God for the ultimate purpose of drawing people closer in relationship to Himself and to others. There are many opportunities to speak against God’s purposes because they do not make sense or seem possible; but we must learn to surrender our negativity so we do not miss out on the breakthrough He is creating.
