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 forward, 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 will 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 into God’s purpose and plan. 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 into your purpose and plan for my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

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

    1. Amen! This spoke to me as well. God’s Word is always on time because it IS ALIVE.

      I too was dealing with a situation about sin in my life and the feeling like I just can’t get disciplined like I was before. But I know that no matter how long it takes, I will keep getting back up but it does get discouraging.

      I was talking to God earlier this morning and I said β€œGod please help me get disciplined in my life again. Take me higher than before. Further than before. Carry me. I know you will strengthen me and I know you won’t let me fall. Help me Father.”

      An hour later I got a notification from DOK. I read it and I can’t say I was surprised because God never ceases to amaze me. And cater to our needs so very intimately. I don’t have any friends. I’ve lost them all on my journey. And I’m okay with that. I know that I know that at the end of this race there Jesus will be standing to greet me and tell me β€œgood job” β€œwell done faithful servant.” Those are the words I long to what more than anything else and I thank God. That He will never leave nor forsake us. He will always go back for that ONE lost sheep. Always.

Yes, yes, yesπŸ™ŒπŸ½ Amen..I was dealing with a situation, didn’t know what to do, I FASTED and I prayed and asked God to give me confirmation, show me a sign, let me know I am making the right choices, and when I read this devotional message this morning, πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ˜’πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’― it was confirmation for me, to let go of the past, stop trying to please people, even if it means You may feel like You are all along, but, God promise me He would never ever leave me are forsake me.πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Hallelujah πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ˜’ Praise God πŸ™ŒπŸ½ I was no longer going to allow the enemy to work in my life πŸ™ŒπŸ½, keeping me held back from doing God’s will and purpose for my lifeπŸ™ŒπŸ½ I had to let go of the past, and press on toward my futureπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ˜’ I now know in my ❀️ heart, I have made the correct decision πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Hallelujah, Praise God πŸ™ŒπŸ½ God gets all the GLORYYYYYY πŸ™ŒπŸ½ I am just Blessed and happy , He choose meπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ˜’πŸ™πŸ½ THANK YOU JESUS πŸ™ŒπŸ½ it not about me are nobody else, it’s about the LORD πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈ I HAVE CLARITY, CONFIRMATION, AND A BETTER PIECE OF MIND .
