We continue to make the transition in this blog from beginning a new personal journey with God into the year of 2018 which I sense is moving us into a new era of how God purposes that we experience life now from where we have previously we done so thus far unto this point in our lives.. So as we navigate this transition, let us continue on; and I trust I am helping you to see when the going gets tough that we always keep moving and always take just one more step over that proverbial line. When we are tired weary or just feel like we are just done or overdone; when that disease, illness, financial, family or relationship problem seems like it will never find resolution or solution and perhaps we’ve been trapped in it for what seems like a very long time, then is the time to ask ourselves some questions. For if we keep doing the same things, the same way then we keep getting the same results.
What are you believing for in life right now? Do you live with a hope for a future? Let alone a future, do we live for a hope for this day? God wired us to live each moment of our lives on purpose. So are we? And if so, what is the foundation for that purpose? Does it drive and motivate you and I? Are you highly passionate about what you put your hand to each moment? When your feet hit the floor each morning can you hardly wait to spring into your day? Does your “work” inspire you with a sense that it is joyful as play? Do you remember what it was like as a child to imagine and play all day?
I know those are a lot of questions and they are thought provoking to some of you I’m certain. I realize there may be some of you whose childhood experience may have not been so pleasant and perhaps very challenging to say the least. I wish to be able encompass each of your situations so let us look at what God has to say about the matter.
My prayer for you all today is that you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding. What is that exactly and how may we apply it where life meets us in the way life shows up?
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.” (Jeremiah 29:11:11-14)
God has distinct plans for us with our very best at heart. Do you have an idea or concept of what those plans may consist of? If so then how are our interests which we place our focus on throughout the course of a day aligned with those plans? How do we even know if they are in or out of alignment therewith? By diligently seeking Him and believing He is who He says He is. If we do so He declares that He will diligently reward our faith so placed in Him. This is how we please His heart in fulfilling His greatest desire for us and that being that we are willing to seek Him for the story He has written for our life and that we are willing to fully trust and look to Him to fully walk it out. (See Hebrews 11:6)
“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
You are thus guaranteed to fully find God and to experience His presence if you will follow the road map for doing so outlined in His word.
He is ready to restore all loss in our life yet in that process He does so by bringing you and I back to the point where those situations originally took us captive.
I realize I’ve opened up a lot to ponder here to today but this leading us to a destination. We are on a journey, remember? so I want us to take this in slowly enough to integrate it so we can each hopefully see and hear what God desires to reveal and make clear to us right now as to where and how He is bringing together His kingdom to a point of culmination. So I hope you’ll stay with me. I know is He teaching me to be patient with the process because therein He holds a level of prospering in body, soul and health and yes wealth. A harmonious flow of all the elements in which we experience life.
“My prayer for you all today is that you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding. May you and I so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him; bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy.
Give thank to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.
He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”
(Colossians 1:9-14 ESV)
It is all encompassed within our personal relationship with Jesus Christ; Knowing truly who He is and seeking Him for the relationship more than for what that brings. I desire above all else for each of us to experience what being fully in His love is, as an actual experience that unfolds into your entire being a transformation of our very lives to a level that is beyond anything we can even begin to imagine.
Christ in us; the hope of glory. As we peer into the looking glass, the darkness in our experience is thereby dispelled by the the illumination of His Light as we are changed into the same image from glory to glory in His Presence. The glory of His latter house shall be greater than the former and You and I are designed to house His Presence. I find that rather overwhelming. So I will leave you with that now, God bless.
