As God's people we learn to live on the basis of hearing God's voice and obeying His word.
"The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works." - John 14:10
If we are "in Christ", we are moving with the most pressing speed, for we are "in" the most dynamic man who ever walked the earth. When He says to us, "Follow me", He is inviting us to a high-speed chase down the roads of our life. On that chase there is no rest except eternal rest and no security except eternal security.
"My children with who I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you.." - Galatians 4:19
The true success of our ministry to others will be by how it brought forth the formation of Christ within the person God has given us to disciple.
The reshaping of our values and our desires is the key work of the Holy Spirit. This reshaping brings us into conformity and harmony with God's purpose for our lives (our DESTINY).
God is helping me walk out of the problems that have tried to grip my mind and my life. I declare this by faith in Jesus' name.
I confess and meditate on God's word day by day. That word is equipping, outfitting, and furnishing me with all the spiritual gear I need to take the adventurous trip God has planned for my life.
As you become increasingly aware of His Presence, you find it easier to discern the way you should go. This is one of the practical benefits of living close to Him. Instead of wondering about what is on the road ahead or worrying about what you should do if…or when…, you can concentrate on staying in communion with Him. When you actually arrive at a choice-point, He will show you which direction to go.
Many people are so preoccupied with future plans and decisions that they fail to see choices they need to make today. Without any conscious awareness, they make their habitual responses. People who live this way find a dullness creeping into their lives. They sleepwalk through their days, following well-worn paths of routine.
As the Creator of the universe, He is the most creative Being imaginable. He will not leave you circling in deeply rutted paths. Instead, He will lead you along fresh trails of adventure, revealing to you things you did not know. Stay in communication with Him. Follow His guiding Presence.
"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you." - Psalm 32:8
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." - Genesis 1:1
