Backsliding into Good


Every new move I make in your life, demands a change, that will allow more space for Me in your life.  Some of you have wonderful hobbies, and others of you get a high from physical labor.  Many of you enjoy travel and socializing and these were all good gifts from Me for a time.  However it’s time to move higher because times are changing rapidly,  1 Corinthians 13:11.

There comes a time when you must put away the toys and good earthly things in order to embrace more advanced kingdom things.  The things I gave you then were wonderful but now I AM calling you higher.  If you refuse My call, you will backslide into good and it will be sin,  James 4:17.

I know you love it, and it relaxes you, and you are good at it, but has it become such an idol that you are willing to disobey Me, to stay with it?  You are on a journey, just passing through on earth, if you are following Me you will be in a state of constant change, be careful not to become so attached to the good things along the way, that you cannot continue the journey with Me!

Please remember to hold all earthly things loosely, so you will be prepared for My next move in your life!  I have answered many prayers, only to have My children fall more in love with the answer than Me.

All physical good things on earth eventually come to an end, in order to enter the higher good things in the Spirit.  You may still possess good things on earth but do not let them possess you.  Remember the good thing you once spent many hours with, but now you can find no more satisfaction in, don’t feel guilty, you are being called higher.

You are growing up and being convinced that the good things of earth will never satisfy your spiritual hunger.  “They that are after the flesh are occupied with the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit,” Romans 8:5.

Once you have stepped out in obedience and moved to a higher plane, just because the battle gets rough, do not backslide into the old good things, you once enjoyed, dig deeper into the new thing, and stay up with Me, on the cutting edge of what I AM doing!
