It’s crystal clear!!
Some time do you find that although you have needs and you pray, and believe God for those prayers to come to pass..yet at the same time you find the waiting period becomes a grey area, and you tend to find that waiting becomes a little hopeless? with that hoping and seeing become very blurry...blurry in the sense of, the waiting period begins to dis-discouragement, and discouragement become's wanting to throw the towel in.
Stop....warning don't give up, God is not finished with you yet!!
I had thought about teaching about parenting…I am not saying I am an expert on parenting…but I could tell you one thing that if we can adopt one thing as parents and that’s to become transparent…think about it the two words put together…trans—parent
Definition of trans= a pair of identical atoms or groups on the opposite sides of two atoms linked by a double bond. “Across,” “beyond,” “through,” “changing thoroughly,”
Parent definition="bring forth, give birth to, produce,"
Declare, pellucid, limpid, and crystalline. TRANSPARENT, translucent agree in describing material that light rays can pass through. That which is transparent allows objects to be seen clearly through it: Clear water is transparent. That which is translucent allows light to pass through, diffusing it, however, so that objects beyond are not distinctly seen:
The Wait….BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE
ALL THINGS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE, THE QUESTION IS… ARE YOU WILLING TO CHANGE? THE CHANGE FOR THE BETTER WILL SHED LIGHT ON MANY THINGS, AND THEREFORE THINGS CAN BE MADE CRYSTAL CLEAR
Read Genesis 12:2-3. Abram was 75 years old ( Genesis 12:4) when he was first promised by God to become a "great nation." Put yourself in Abram's sandals: when would you expect that promise to be fulfilled? (Soon, given his age!)
Abram is now 85, ten years have passed since God promised him (at 75) to "become a great nation." Why does God, no doubt remembering His promise, tell Abram that his faithfulness to God is a "great reward?"

Why does God, no doubt remembering His promise, tell Abram that his faithfulness to God is a "great Why would God wait so long? What purpose does a 25+ year delay serve? (This is one of those areas in which it is difficult (at least for me) to understand the mind of God. A son, Isaac, was born to them. Isaac's name means "to laugh," and thus he was a perpetual reminder to Abraham and Sarah (who also laughed in derision ( Genesis 18:10-12) of the reliability (if not speed) of God's promises to them.)
IN REALITY THE WAIT OF GOD PROMISING TO ABRAHAM THAT HE WILL PARENT GODS PROMISE TO HIM…TOOK TOO LONG FOR ABRAHAM'S LIKING (Gods timing is perfect) ….SO THE WAIT TURNED INTO …. SARAH THINKING TO HIMSELF I WILL HELP GOD ALONG….SO WHAT DID SHE DO…SHE AND ABRAHAM DECIDED TO PARENT ANOTHER CHILD….BY USING THERE SERVANT HAGAR…AND DID SHE??…YES SHE DID!!! THAT EVENTUALLY WENT A WALL….AND SARAH EVENTUALLY KICKED THE SERVANT OUT WITH HER CHILD AND HAD TO GO BACK TO TRUSTING GOD…For His promise to become crystal clear to Abraham and Sarah….Are YOU waiting for your breakthrough? and if so you need to see it Crystal Clear! IF YOU SEE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR..THEN IT WILL BE birthed, and WITHIN GODS TIMING IT WILL come to pass!
THIS IS A FREEBIE FAITH IS LIVING WITHOUT SCHEMING…..The pattern throughout history, is God works with human partners to fulfil His work on earth. The line between being "God's helper" and "scheming" is not always a real bright line.)
Read Hebrews 11:12. Does the fact that God waited until this couple was "as good as dead" to give them the promised child help explain the wait? (This is a recurring pattern in God's dealings with humans. He waits until it is impossible, and then He does the impossible - so that no one is confused about God's role in the matter.) Reward?"
You see God always intended for us to be so transparent …like an object that you can see through…. Or another example is to be likened to this…that God can been seen right through us, as we become more transparent.
We were born to have a double bond with our heavenly father, born to be linked to Him…to parent, bring forth , give birth to produce…Well, produce what??? Answers to our prayers…so this will be like our transparency through and in Him.
No one in here today can say they have been perfect parents, neither can any of us say we had perfect parents….but if we could live to be this one very thing…TO BE TOTALLY transparent, then when we do make mistakes or when we miss it, which in one way or another this will happen….Transparency, is a gem, or a nugget that we will be able to pass on to our children’s , children’s….
THE MORE WE LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES THE MORE PEOPLE CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH US, WHICH MAKES US TRANSPARENT
YOU KNOW VERY WELL WHEN SOMETHING IS BLURRY, OR WHEN SOMETHING IS not SEEN PROPERLY, THEN THAT’S WHEN CONFUSION , DOUBT AND ALL SORTS OF OTHER THINGS TAKE PLACE….BUT WHEN SOMETHING IS CRYSTAL CLEAR THAN THINGS CAN BE SEEN FOR WHAT TRY TRULY ARE….
SEE RIGHT THROUGH…NO MATTER WHAT??
JUST LIKE WHEN A WOMAN FINDS OUT SHE IS CONCEIVED TO HAVE A BABY SHE GOES THROUGH DIFFERENT BODY CHANGES THAT MAKE HER UN-COMFORTABLE, AND SO SHE LEARNS TO ADJUST, SHE ADOPTS A NEW WAY OF COPING…AND SO TOO WITH TRANSPARENCY IF YOU CAN ADOPT THIS ONE THING , THEN YOU WILL NOT BE MOVED BY ANY NEGATIVITY.
sure... AT TIMES you might FEEL IN SOME SITUATIONS UNCOMFORTABLE, WANTING TO GIVE UP, EVEN A LITTLE RATTLED…..BUT I CAN ASSURE, THAT GOD WILL HONOUR A PERSON WHO IS NOT RATTLED, NOT MOVED, STANDS FIRM, AND REMAINS TRANSPARENT NO MATTER WHAT….BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THEY ARE PARENTING SOMETHING THAT’S GONNA BE HANDED DOWN….AND IT’S NOT JUST A QUICK FIX…BUT RATHER THE LONG TERM AFFECTS WILL ENDURE FOR GENERATIONS TO COME!
WHEN JESUS WENT TO THE CROSS…GOD WAS USING THE IDENTICAL TRANSPARENCY THAT ABRAHAM USED WITH ISAAC, WHEN GOD ASKED ABRAHAM TO SACRIFICE HIS SON….ABRAHAM AND GOD WERE TWO IDENTICAL ATOMS, LINKED BY A DOUBLE BOND…THE MORE ABRAHAM OBEYED GOD THE MORE HE WAS CHANGING THOROUGHLY…THE MORE HE CHANGED THE MORE TRANSPARENT HE WAS, AND THIS MY FRIEND WAS THE VERY THING THAT ABRAHAM DID AS A FOR RUNNER FOR US!
Romans 8:17 Now, if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Romans 9:8 In other words, it is not the children by physical descent who are God's children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham's offspring
IN CLOSING DON’T GIVE UP….DON’T ABORT…IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME….GODS TIMING…IN THE MEANWHILE…BE TRANSPARENT TO YOUR SPOUSE TO YOUR CHILDREN….BECAUSE THEY ARE WAITING FOR YOU SO THAT YOU WILL PASS ON THE TRANS—PARENCY DOWN TO THEM….LET THE SEE GOD DISTINCTLY RIGHT THROUGH!!!
