This morning, during prayer, the LORD reminded me that He had told me He wanted me to come up higher with Him.
Honestly, I have been somewhat discouraged here lately, and I told the LORD I wanted to, but I wasn’t sure how and I needed help.
It is so easy to get our minds occupied with the things of the day that we take our time with the LORD too lightly, and before we know it, we are off and running with the events of the day and haven’t spent as much time as we should with God.
You know what? I literally had to make myself linger with the LORD.
He says ‘Be still and know that I AM God.’
This morning I purposefully practiced being still, letting my plans slip away, and with my eyes shut I began to look for Him and talk to Him.
You have to know that it wasn’t long and we were conversing. I saw Him in my mind and He said, “Take My Hand,” and He led me through a dark place and when the path began to lighten, He said to me, “Do you know where we are?’
I looked and there was a cliff in front of me and a large open area on the other side.
“Yes,” I said, “I remember this is where you taught me about faith.”
I remembered before, He walked out on the expanse of nothing as I stood on the cliff and He said to me, “Here is where you need to be! This is what faith is all about!”
He came towards me and reached out His hand for mine and He led me out on the great expanse of nothing.
Then He said, “I have something to show you!” The scene changed and I was looking at a night sky with a million stars and galaxies and He said, “This is for you!”
The LORD really encouraged me this morning and confirmed plans He had and that faith was the key.
I am sharing this with you, because I believe the most important thing we can be doing is spending time being still before God and talking with Him.
He really has much He wants to share, if we will only take the time to listen.
I want to challenge to just believe…. just believe Jesus is right there with you, that He’s closer than a whisper than a breath to you…JUST BELIEVE!
“I AM the vine and the Father is the vinedresser… Abide in Me and I in you… AND FRUIT WILL COME FORTH… I AM the vine and you are the branches… if you are willing to go there with Me, you will bear much fruit.”
I want to challenge you to go away with Him and BELIEVE HIS WORD IS TRUE, and DECREE AND DECLARE IT OVER YOUR LIFE…
That He will meet you right where you are, believing that he is true and that he will not fail you.
YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON THIS Kind of FAITH. You have it! It has been imparted to you and if you kindle it, the flame of faith will grow; hope will grow; and you will be unshakable.
Decrease and He will Increase. Put your plans aside! Spend more time with Him, and in His word… He wants the two of you together to move forward in the work He has called you to.
Jesus is not complicated, and He has made faith and our walk so simple…
We complicate our lives when we pursue our own needs and desires…
He says, “Just believe Me! Just believe that I AM He!”
Did he not say if we believe, we would see His Glory!
Draw your strength from Him, TAKE COURAGE!
He has placed warring angels all around you to protect you… Now go, start walking and He will be there for you!
So what is standing in your way of STEPPING OUT AND BELIEVING today, of spending that quality time with Him?
Let Jesus have it, for it will only stand in your way…
Do you want to go higher with Him in your Christian walk? Then this life He has given you cannot be about you, IT MUST BE ABOUT HIM… and you know what, you can do it, He is ready to help if you will give yourself to Him!
God Bless You, you are in my prayers
