Deep Calls To Deep... Iron Sharpens Iron....
How did I get Here Again Lord?

Your places may be similar to mine or totally different--no matter 'bout that, it's a place where, every time we get here, we Stop Short from Entering!*

I was told that This is a spiritual place where every time God brings us to this place, we stop short of walking into and rec' the fullness of what He has prepared for us.
We do not think, believe, remember, that God has already prepared us for rec'ing the fullness of what He has prepared for us.
He said it's like crossing the river to the promised land.
 the land has been given to us, it's already ours, but we have to take it/ rec' it.

He told me, Yes it will take effort.
Yes, it will be a fight to overcome what the enemy has set up to make us fail=stop short Again!
And Yes, all we go through will be worth it.

So i told the Lord i am tired of going around this mountain--dealing with this place that i have been in for a While now.
If God is saying I am ready to leave this place of learning and the only thing holding me here is not using my faith and trust as He says I am Able to do, Well, Then.... GiddyUp!

IN the name of Jesus, I began surrendering everything that is hindering me and makes me Stop Short every other Time God brings me to this lesson/test/mountain, etc...!
Thank You Jesus!
What ever fears, doubts, etc... that are holding me (you) back, He has seen Right to move us along in our growth and maturity, along on His plan according to His Will for each of us and I am expecting Him to strengthen me as I need it for this part of the journey.
 I am expecting that He will be Right with me to fight For me like He promised!

"One of those days He and His disciples got into a boat, and He said to them, "Let us go across to the other side of the lake." So they put out to sea.
Luke 8:20-25

Matthew 8:18-22
Mark 4:33-37

Too many Stop Short at the Place of Crossing Over, and this keeps them from Receiving-from walking into the Fullness of what God has prepared for them.

If we Love Him we will Trust Him and Obey Him. If you are going to be committed to God there are going to be some places that He puts you in that are Not comfortable, there are places where you need to learn some new things. In the name of Jesus, You have to decide to do what ever He wants you to do every time-every day.
Many will not allow God to prepare them for what He has prepared For them.
Not allowing God to heal us, to deliver us from some things that are dead and toxic, not allowing God to make us better because we lack trust and faith in Him. Only seeing ourselves based on our situations, and circumstances, seeing ourselves as others have boxed us in, instead of seeing ourselves as God sees us.
Trying to hold together what God is wanting to tear down in order to rebuild something Better according to His plans and purposes for us.
Not learning the New things=information, a new skill, new thinking and speaking that will help us where we are being Led.

All of these (and some others ) will Keep us in a "Stopping Short" mentality!
And because we stop short every time, we will Keep being brought Back to this Same Place over and over again, Until we decide that we have had enough!

Many end up Receiving the Blessings that they have prayed for, the blessings that we knew nothing about that God wanted us to have, but so many Loose these blessings because they do Not allow Him to stretch their faith, trust, love, understanding, wisdom and knowledge. All of which better our character.

You know, some people are Too quick to reject what they do not understand at the moment of hearing/reading it. If what they hear or read does not make sense to them, if it does not hit directly on what they are going through, if it's not what they wanted to hear,  they reject it as not for them. Doing that Instead of going to God in prayer and asking for understanding concerning what was heard or read, will keep them where they are.

Their lack of understanding hits a nerve in their ego and pride and they sit on that, they get offended, saying that the message is wrong, not clear, that it was said to make them feel stupid or to put them down. When that is the farthest thing from the truth. Too many are limited so they cannot hear nor see what they need to learn with it comes. They are focused on some natural need and miss the Help when it comes.

God is Always seeking to grow and mature us. His love grows and matures everything it falls on. God will tell us things that when first heard or read doesn't make sense to us, but it is what needs to be known, it is what needs to be said, it is what needs to be done.
Accept it, be thankful, ask God's Spirit for revelation, what God sends, You Do Need. Even if you don't understand it at first.
When we first get into a class that we have never taken before, all of the information is new to us, it makes no sense. Do you get up and drop the class, or do you open up, do you make yourself willing to learn, to you accept Growth and Maturity in places where you need it?

Too many block that growth and maturity, because what they hear or read is Not what they think they need to know, say or do. They are Too focused on their plans and how they want to go about getting them done.
Or, they Are focused on God's plan and purpose for them, But, they have decided to achieve those by their ideas, ways, timing and order, Not God's.
Either way, God is doing a correction in their lives, He is adding in what is lacking, He is growing and strengthening your knowledge, your faith and trust.

If you have prayed in the name of Jesus that God Increase you according to His Will, Plans and Purposes in all areas of your spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual lives; then be opened, be willing, Be teachable, be correctable, because God will begin to teach you, to stretch you, to pour into you what is lacking And needed.
God's first priority is to grow, mature and Build His kingdom in each of us. All material things come afterward.

And if it is New, it may not make sense at the point if hearing or reading it, that is no reason to allow your emotions, ego and pride to dictate what you need to learn and do. Did your spiritual ears eyes Hear and See or was it your natural eyes and ears that heard and read? God wants to change how we see and know our self, how we see and know Him, How we see and know our circumstances and situations.

All through the bible God and Jesus told people to do things that made no sense at first. Some trusted by faith right away and obeyed, they became open and increased in their knowledge and wisdom, And they received the Results that God planned.
Others flat out rejected what they were told.
Others believed at first, stepping out on faith to obey, but when the time came to do what they were told to do, they became fearful, prideful and did things in an old way, which did not produce the results that God planned.

New Wine will not fit into old wine skins, and Old wine will not fit into new wine skins.
 Are you Sure you Want to Be Healed?
Are you going to Stop Short from walking into the Fullness of what God has planned for you, Again?
Or are you going to be fearless, trusting Him and get through this same place that you keep coming back to over and over Again?

God can't use you, bless you, grow you, mature you, if you are unwilling to Learn what you do not know, if you are unwilling to Trust Him completely, if you are not allowing your faith to help you obey His Leading.
In the name of Jesus, I love you and will continue to Praise your way through!
In the name of Jesus, Everything has to be believed, be known in our hearts to be Spiritually Done--Then will we see it all in the natural. Many will not enter the physical promised land here on earth, because they are not living in it spiritually, here on earth.

Deuteronomy 27:3
3 "And you shall write on them all the words of this law when you have passed over, that you may go into the land which the Lord your God Is Giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you."
Acts 1:3-18
4 "And while being in their company and eating with them, He commanded them Not to leave Jerusalem but To Wait For What the Father Had Promised, Of which [He said] you have heard Me speak. "

13 And when they had entered [the city], they mounted the stairs to the upper room where they were indefinitely staying—Peter and John and James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas [son] of James.

14 All of these With their Minds In Full Agreement Devoted themselves steadfastly to prayer, waiting together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

On feet of Faith & Peace
