Proverbs 4:11-12 (Amplified Bible)
12 When you walk, your steps shall not be hampered [your path will be clear and open]; and when you run, you shall not stumble.
Just a few things that I have learned from our Lord as I sit with Him and remain teachable. Being a student of His is not always comfortable, but it really is not hard, if you really Want to learn.
I pray that you are encouraged by what He has given to me that I share in order to encourage myself. May you continue to allow Him to complete the changes that He has for your life. I pray that you allow Him to continue to prepare you so that you will grow in your Spiritual life, in your emotional life and in your natural life. In that order, in the name of Jesus, amen.
In times like these, those that belong to the Lord should not become fearful as they get to the Red Sea, or a wall that keeps them out, or a problem that someone else created, we should not focus on it— but keep our focus on our Promised Land of Freedom that we Surely will walk into, drawing on all the courage that we can and As He parts the waters-making a Way- we Will pass over dry land.
There is nothing to fear when you have Faith in Him enough to Trust Him.
Or, is that the case with many of His people…..they don’t have faith enough to trust Him? Keep learning, keep seeking Him, keep yourself open to His Spirit’s Leading; stay teachable and your faith will grow as He passes you through each and every trial and trouble-using each one to change you and mold you- walking right beside you- always holding on. He’ll be there!
To be strengthened, established and prepared in your Spiritual Growth means you have accepted the changes that always come from His teachings. You have opened your eyes and your heart to Him fully.
There is no need to fear any of the changes that come with each step of trust by faith.
"The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1
I'm going to Get what God has for me!Joshua 1:1-16
Just as Joshua trusted God to deliver them into the Promises that He spoke to them, we all are to learn to trust Him by faith just the same.
If you have prayed for God to Divinely Order your steps, then when He tells you to step--you have to step forward! Take The STEP!
By Faith, You have to believe that He has prepared the details you will need for your physical and Spiritual breakthrough! Not just changing yourself physically, but first changing in your Spiritual life, your emotional life, your mental life-the way you think and what you think about. Changes have to begin there first before you can really begin to enjoy your life.
Changing your physical self only and or first, will not help you overcome your emotional issues, your spiritual issues, your brokenness and pain. All that goes with you wherever you take your physical body; You follow you everywhere you go.
He is offering you A Spiritual breakthrough-by having a connection to Him!
Are you Ready to get what God has for you? Then Step! Get ready for what God wants to do through and for you! When you trust Him with everything that He promised He Will supply; He Will get you out of the places in which you are stuck.
Many times, people take the plan that God has provided to them and they add in their own ideas and ways trying to make it theirs and not His work. They want to unravel His plan, that is why they want to know every detail beforehand.
How many of you Trust God enough to step out of your struggles, out of your comfort zones, out of your places of being stuck, out of your broken and immature emotional places? To step out of the friendships that are hurting you, the relationships that are a stronghold on you, to step out of the jobs that He is leading you from? To step into the jobs that He has established for you?
Even though He may not reveal to you every detail beforehand—even though you don’t understand it all—but you know God wants you to move into a place that He has Established for you—a place where He has taken care of all the details. Do you trust Him enough to step when He says to step?
Take note, that when you do trust Him enough by faith to step into the places that He has prepared for you or to step out of the places that are holding you back--Many people will become jealous toward you. They will be mad that you have the faith to trust Him because they do not. Others will try to come against you, they do not want you to rise up higher than they are. They may throw your past up in your face, they may talk behind your back, they may do just about anything to try and sabotage your faith and trust in God. If they succeed in stopping you, making you doubt, or fear then they have accomplished what they wanted-to keep you on their level or below them. Pray for them and give them a Wide berth! They cannot stop or hurt you unless you allow them to!
When you make that move by faith into the places that God has established for you, KNOW that He has taken care of all the details so there is no need to fear.
To get what God has for you, you have to be willing to move—again, not just physically, but first move/change in how you see, how you think and act.
Others will see that your relationship with God is based on a belief system in Him and that no matter what you face you know that God is with you in the name of Jesus.
Know that everyone can’t go with you. Those that are jealous of your faith and trust in Jesus will need to be cut away. Make that move when He speaks to your heart to do so. Do not allow your old way of thinking to jam you up in a stuck place and position.
I know that this training And teaching time has not been in vain.
At times suppression, repression, and depression all have been used…But it all has been changed into a time of Glorious Expression. Fully Delighted as I behold the Works of the Lord Every Day.
To behold Him every day in all the small things that He does and that I do. He is always in the Details of everything—making them seamless.
His Love has flooded through my life spreading Joy And Gladness. Indeed He has prepared a table of His Delights—A Feast of All Good things for me. His Holy Spirit will anoint you to Praise Him—you just can’t help yourself at these times.
You ever been standing in line somewhere, or doing some house work and begin to think on the Goodness of the Lord? When I do I get so full.
Not to approach God intellectually, He will always be small and confined in the boundaries of the smallness of your mind. Approach Him through your heart-through your Spirit and your Soul. That is how you learn Him, that is where He lives in us Spiritually.
Indeed my cup runneth over and I can feel from the very depth of my heart all that the Lord has planned for me. This is a place of Spiritual growth that He is leading each and every one of those He has called and chosen to be His own.
“Surely goodness And mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever!”
Proverbs 15:15 “All the days of the afflicted are evil; but he that is of a merry heart has a continual feast!”
I know my Lord that You are lifting me higher ( and others)—establishing us in a Stronger Faith—a more Powerful Faith that settles us deeper in Your Purpose for our lives. We continuously expect you Lord. And because we trust You and trust the leading of Your Holy Spirit that dwells within us, You Perfect us to Your detailed specifications.
I love you Lord and I know that this level of faith will allow us to experience the victory and give You more glory—as You continue to Give us what You Want us to Have my Lord!
You have opened my eyes and your Spirit has anointed me with a strong discernment that I am able to see clearly and understand what the enemy has used to hinder my progress. I discern where and when the enemy has created a block and even tried to push me back.
Yes, your divine awareness through growth and trust I know the enemy cannot hold me back nor stop me—I have allowed you to come into me deeper to heal my brokenness, lengthen my shortcomings, and repair what I have destroyed-that I am in need of. You have given to me the Divine wisdom and understanding to see when I am stopping You from helping me grow. Amen.
My friends, the barriers of vapor-smoke and mirrors that the enemy uses against us have no substance at all in reality. We should be grateful to be corrected and changed by Jesus. To fight God and have an attitude when He points out things that need to be faced and corrected in our character, in our heart, in our head and in our Spirit is to want to stay immature and stuck.
Proverbs 4:11-12 (Amplified Bible)
11 I have taught you in the way of skillful and godly Wisdom [which is comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God]; I have led you in paths of uprightness.
12 When you walk, your steps shall not be hampered [your path will be clear and open]; and when you run, you shall not stumble."
I encourage you to claim Him as your Help which is your right from God. Often we are to appeal to Jesus our Friend. We are to claim Him as our Help with a mighty, impelling insistence. This Help from Him that we are to Boldly claim is ours because it was included in the Great Gift of Himself that He willingly gave to each of us. Amen.
I claim Your Help as the All Embracing Gift-the Truly Awesome Wonderful Gift that You Are Jesus! It is Well with my Soul!
When other’s deny us—You Lord Will always come through for us!
UnconditionaLove is decision that has the Power of forgiveness in it.
Forgive yourself and then you will be able to forgive others.
Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Faith.
