I asked this question earlier today. But my spirit immediately answered, "No ... He doesn't hate you, and you know it."
But I totes get how it can seem like it sometimes. I get it. I'm doing everything I know to do to successfully maneuver transition in every area of my life, and nothing's working right, yet. I'm praying, fasting, speaking faith, reading my Bible and still feel like I've been thrown in the deep end of the pool without knowing how to swim.
The absolute truth is God doesn't hate me or you. He may not like you too much, depending where you fit on His spectrum of believing in Yeshua to blaspheming Holy Spirit, etc. But He doesn't hate you. There are some things revealed in The Logos that God hates - Proverbs has several lists of seven, but there are other places as well - so you can read up and see if you're any of those. If you are ... you might wanna change it up. Just a suggestion.
I know God loves me big. He actually used me as an example for someone learning to spend quality time with Him. That was pretty cool. I didn't appreciate it when it was shared with me because I was irritated at the time with my seemingly never-ending transitions. But you know how God is: He sends encouragement when it's needed; it's up to us to receive it and allow it soak into our spirits.
Loving me big is part of the reason God pushes me out of every nest I try to get comfortable in. He seems to think there's greater potential in me than even I know about, and He's not content to allow me any rest in my comfort zone. I just asked a friend if he remembered how I used to be happy not to leave the house for days at time, and now I'm always on the go.
Here's some of my known and expressed potential - at which I'm happy to stop, btw. I'm an author, an entrepreneur who owns several businesses, a baker at a family-owned bakery and a deliverance minister who cleanses land and time and pulls demons out of people's backs. And God keeps pushing me for more.
I told Patti Cake I need some stability in my life. I need at least one area where God has ruled in my favor and said to the enemy, "You can no longer touch this part of Zari's life." Right now it feels like everything's up in the air.
When I do get my next victory, though ... you talk about a testimony. The enemy's gonna be so sad they even uttered the first sound of the first syllable of my name. Please agree verbally with this prayer:
Lord, I trust You completely. You moved me to the most-expensive area in my state after I spent three years saying I'd NEVER move there. You planted me there for a reason, and I trust You to sustain me. You're The God Who Provides. I trust You. Amen.
I bless you in Yeshua's Name. 💜
From Home - finally, after one cancelled flight, sleeping in the cold car, not being able to get a flight and a 4-hour drive. God, help.
