Oh Yes, You shaped me first inside, then out
You formed me in my mother's womb.
I thank You, High God—You're breathtaking!
Body and soul, I Am Marvelously Made!
I Worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
You know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before You,
The days of my life All Prepared
before I'd even lived one day!
Wait for It!
Can't you Hear It!?
No, Don't Leave! Sit and Wait, It's Almost Here!
Sometimes it Roars In,
Sometimes It walks in on a Cushion of Air,
not even disturbing the air....
AND you Look Up And BAM!
It's Right UP On you!
you Gonna Leave? Oh, Ok......
Hummmm, thought we were waiting On the Same Thing....
shhhhh, IT'S Closer, Here It Comes!
Being Comfortable in our own skin, Secure in our calling, Confident in our trusting of God, having Radical Faith in Him, having Boldness in our words and actions, Always Open and Willing to Hear and Obey Him, All of this feeds and grows our self esteem which continues to prepare us for His purposes.
Preparing us to Be who He has created us to be, and to do what He leads us to do for each day. Having and Using the spiritual power to Stand when no one else will, to Speak His Truth when all others are either lying or not saying anything, to be the Help for those in need when others walk on by.
None of this makes us superior to others. We are not seeking to prove our value by measuring ourselves with some human standard. That would cheapen our anointing and keep us from being effective and sound.
Our Joy and Peace grow from whose we are, not from being better than others. Learning and being corrected and applying what we learn requires us to be willing to go through any humbling necessary to be changed and made better than the last way we were. Knowing that from our mistakes we will learn and we Should apply what we learn, so we do not create a cycle of repeating the same mistake again and again.
Deep Calls Deep!
We who have received His calling and take it seriously will not have many friends because we are usually speaking Truth. That is not a popular thing.
This is what separates us from others. So do not be concerned with those He has pulled you away from, those who reject you, those who dress and speak the part/word, but do not live it. Those who you have found out are hypocrites, those who use fellowship as a social group, who use worship as entertainment, who use the people as a way of gaining their next bed partners, and to fill their lives with material gain, who gather others to gain in their title status leading all away from His kingdom instead of into it. They do not come into His Kingdom and are keeping others out also.
Matthew 23:13-44 (the Message)
Spiritual growth and maturity provides us with a spirit of strong self control and self discipline, leading us to Ask His purpose for each person that we cross paths with. To slow down and gain His understanding, instead of thinking we know what we are to do for them or them for us and jumping out in front of Hearing from God, based on emotions or based on how God worked through us with the last person.
He knows their heart and He knows what is best for them just as He knows what is Best for us.
Every person we cross paths with Is Not a potential intimate partner, may not be a new friend, may not be the one to align ourselves with in business ventures, may not be around for years, may Not be someone you can trust, so do not give the details of your Vision to them.
When we Seek Clarity--He will give clarity to us concerning His purpose for us in their life and about why they are in ours. That is all we are to do. It's not about you and me, it's about what Jesus has to do in that persons life.
It Will Be a better day for you when you realize that you have been carrying someone elses burden, because they really do not want to completely surrender to His Love. Yet they keep on you for advice and try to us you as a dumping ground complaining about the consequences they are now within from the decisions they made. Every body has to go through the consequences of their decisions. When we begin to make better decisions, we create better consequences. The more we allow His Spirit to guide us, helping us to make all decisions, giving us Sound, Solid ground and truth, the better we will live each day.
Stop trying to make others love you, trying to make them acknowledge and accept your calling and the truth that you have been changed. Step further into the Freedom His Love provides by letting them go into His hands.
As we Move deeper into the Freedom His Love provides, we are removing limits that we and others have placed around ourselves.
Many times we are sowing seeds, or doing some watering. We come by many who are not ready to step into His Love. That is not our work, We are to make the way right, straight for His coming, the small acts of love should not be ignored or looked down upon. The work we do is not one that will gain applause, most times we are working out of sight of many. On feet of Peace we go about preparing the Way for Him to enter when He is ready.
Being content to allow Him to prepare our hearts first, if we have any unrest in our hearts, we will not be able to prepare the way for Him to come into anyone elses life. He gets the Increase in the timing He has set to be.
He keeps me in Perfect Peace. Isaiah 26:3
God's wisdom, purpose, love, and understanding are training us in the Ways that are Best for us to grow. How we begin is the way we will grow and how we grow is a good indicator as to the potential in ability as to how one will end.
God starts us and keeps us based on our individual gifts and purposes. He bends us, prunes us, alters our direction to match His plans and purposes for us. Each is similar and yet different.
He has the strategy laid out for each of us, He has prophecy, a declaration of His will, He has words of knowledge and words of wisdom for each of us--All of this and More that we may not gain any other way, than from God. Same as He did for Jesus, He is doing for us.
As we move into this new year, let us go before our Lord with Opened hearts and obedient ears, seeking to receive a word from Him for ourselves, for each member of our family, especially our children. His Love and Word are the authority and the power that bends us, prunes us, changes the direction of how we grow and live.
We have to be focused and diligent in praying in The Spirit and asking Him for the interpretation of each thing. He has promised to tell those who ask in Truth and Spirit of the things to come. Slow down, enjoy everything He has already placed into each day for us. More than Enough of everything we will need, for each day. God has Already taken care of tomorrow. Believe and Trust Him, move further into the Freedom of His Love for you!
His plan Is the Plan. Expect New Beginnings, Come to Learn. Come to Lead by example.
In the name of Jesus, Amen. So Be It.
On feet of Faith & Peace
Isaiah 50:4/Isaiah 52/Jer 20:9-10,11-13/Joshua 1:9
Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Radical Faith.
