You may have noticed I haven’t posted for a couple of days. Sometimes life just has a way of coming at us doesn’t it? Such has been the case as over the last few days with me.
I entered new territory that was unfamiliar and so there were levels of uncertainty that surfaced as I sensed the very distinct call of the Lord to step into what looked like revisiting some ground that represented part of my past yet I am seeing that in a very new way, in new light, with new eyes. I was compelled to step into this boldly in a faith level that far surpassed any I have ever walked in previously.
God asks us to come boldly to His throne of grace to find help in time of need. I certainly felt I was in a place of great need being stretched far beyond current resources that appeared to be at hand. It was enough to lead me to believe I was feeling weak and beginning to experience infirmity in my body. Was I up to believing God for the impossible? But God is greater than my than my greatest challenge at hand in the moment. His grace is sufficient.
I had to come to the conclusion that I am God’s “impossible possibility”, in light of the “seen”; through the eyes of man… likely to fail. Failure however is not carrying a sentence of finality. Failure is fuel for the fire as I keep my eye on the prize, as I am in a race that I am determined to finish well. All run but one receives the prize and that is the the one that wins. For me life is a win and one that I press into fully.
Every promise given me of God is true and whatever He asks of me gets a “YES” because I choose to believe and take God at His word explicitly for who He is and who He says that I am and I am a word from God manifested and manifesting. Every promise “YES” and to every yes, Amen! He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him and without faith it is impossible to please Him. (Hebrews 11:6)
So it came down to the realization that it is time to let go of what surmounts to the old standbys of “comfortable and familiar” wherein security has rested confidently for a very long time. It time to embrace what I describe as a “new sound” in my spirit; one that I can no longer refuse or deny because it has become a very pronounced rising call and beckoning, welling up from deep from within. This built up pressure crying for release and when I opened unconditionally in total surrender up sprang forth a river of living water that introduced to me a better version of myself that I must embrace wholeheartedly and choose to be henceforth in every succeeding moment. I now am finding ways to express this sound. I will be sharing some of this in coming days.
I base my premise solely on the Word of God. I pray and decree scripture continually over every point of my being and experience as they are highlighted to my awareness. I pray believing unceasingly until the unseen begins to take shape and form and it always shall but not necessarily in the manner I would naturally choose to perceive it.
So the divine story that God wrote for me now is being unpacked and is rolling out. I am utterly amazed; rather taken by surprise, but God so desires to surprise you and I to ends beyond our wildest imagination. I have realized His Love for me in a way I never knew. I no longer question this and find myself sharing such far and wide as to just how great and majestic and real He is!
An alabaster box represents what is likely a prized possession that we may we offer and surrender to Jesus in an act of total submission. This may be something we have prized because it may consist of what we have deemed to represent what we have been best at and most comfortable and familiar with.
Perhaps it is time to release such; breaking the alabaster box as life poured out to the Master. Allow him to break the box that we have held on to for so long. So why not offer your very best to the Master as the clay that it is and allow the Potter’s hand to mold and shape it into something new?
Would you or I allow what we might value as our very best to be shattered and poured out? When making an offering, should it not come from our very best that one can offer? This reflects excellence. May we always offer only our very best.
It is a new day and may I suggest a new time for a new sound in our expression of how we do life. I wish to invite you to enter in with me in agreeing for such. Will you with me, just stick with these two words; “Yes Lord”? It is time to embrace and step into new lands that await you and I. Amen?
