My sister, you can’t stay where you are.

“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14

If you’ve ever seen the Indian Jones movies, you had the main character looking for treasure and being met with all sorts of danger in the process. However, there’s one scene that really stands out to me. It’s when he is crossing over a bridge, and he sees the bridge being destroyed behind him. He runs fast, knowing if he stands still, he will die.

When it comes to obeying God and doing what He’s called you to do, I would like for you to remember this image. See God’s plan and purpose in front of you and destruction behind you, which can be getting caught up in sin, or experiencing unnecessary hardship. My sister, you can’t stay where you are. You’ve got to move forward. If you stand still in fear, doubt and unbelief, you open a door for the enemy to operate in your life. That’s not God’s will for you. It is His will that you have life and life to the full.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for speaking directly to my heart. I know I can’t stay where I am. I have to move forward. Help me, Lord. I rebuke any spirit that is keeping me from obeying you, and I yield to you completely. I say yes to your will and choose to move forward. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Hebrews 12:1; Proverbs 5:22; Psalm 103:4)

  5. Good Morning Lord,

    Yahweh, I thank you for all you do. I thank you for the peace that you have given me as I try to step in faith into small things in life that usually cause me an immense amount of fear. Lord for the first time in my life I have experienced what your holy word describes as peace that passeth all understanding. I never understood that until these past two weeks. I have had so much on my plate as far as work and wife of the house duties. Some things that have come up are things that I fear the most. And one thing I was asked to do, I just accepted. I normally would have never agreed to do what was asked of me. My first response was just to be bold and do it. Needless to say, I have had so much peace, despite my normal fears of rejection, not enough time, not knowing how to do something or all the other typical fears. I have just had peace that you will help me do it, that people will come in to help me when I need it, and that I will accomplish it at a high level. Lord I thank you for allowing me to experience the peace that passeth all understanding. It’s so amazing when your word comes to life in our life personally. I pray you continue to give me a peace that passeth all understanding while destruction happens behind me due to me moving forward in your purpose in my life. I pray that you continue to make my purpose clear to me and even those around me. I believe I will lay at your feet in great humility, gladness and reverence because I finally know that call on my life with such crystal clear clarity. I can’t wait for that day that I weep at your feet with the gem of knowing what you created me to do on this earth while I have a short amount of time here. I thank you. I thank you. Thank you for giving me imagination and vision back. I love you and continue to trust you.
