There is a way that seem right to a man, but the end of it leads to death. God has a purpose for you. No on else can fulfill that purpose for you. Your entire make up, everything about your way of walking with Him was planned and directed by Him, for “the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and He takes great delight in doing this.” He knows the choices you make. He knows whether your conscience will chose to make the “turn around” (repentance), or go the way of the world. But know this: the sooner you turn your head and your heart toward Him, the sooner you make the effective walk with God, the way you envisioned it long ago, a reality.
Are you missing something? Are you surrounded by the things of this world that not only take over your time but drown out the clear Voice you’ve been wanting to hear? Jesus said “My sheep know my voice and I am known by my sheep.” Don’t let anyone’s professed opinion of you, whether that person is a leader or not, circumvent the calling that God Himself has placed on your life. Even leaders can say things that are totally out of line with God’s calling on your life. Get up now.
The gifts and calling of God are without repentance. The Lord never intended for you to be beneath anyone else’s perception of who you are, or how God has CALLED YOU to walk with Him. His own Voice is what matters in your life. Isn’t it time, right now, to get on with it?
But now, after you have known God, or rather are known of God, why do you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? (Gal. 4:9) . Now, what is happening to you? Have you forgotten the rock from which you were hewn? Has your faith in Christ’s ability in you become nothing to you? Have you forgotten that this treasure, Christ in you, by the power of Holy Spirit, dwells in earthen vessels, so that the excellency of the power would be of God and not of us?
It is time to break the bands of wickedness, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke; to cast your cares on Him who cares for you. To cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. He Who calls you is faithful and He will fulfill every promise He has made to you. Cast not away your confidence in the Lord wherein is great reward, for you have need of patience so that after you have done the will of God you will receive the promise. For you shall become like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season, and whose leaf does not wither; whatsoever he does will prosper. (Psalm 1)
If our hearts condemn us, God is greater than our hearts, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then we have confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. (1John 2).
Now hear what Jesus has to say in the Gospel of John Chapter 14 about the person who believes in Him and puts his or her faith in Him. ”Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My Name, that will I do that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it.” How is this possible?
Jesus tells us “All things are possible for him who believes.” He calls us “To Believe.” Believe that He Who has begun this good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Believe Him when He says “And these signs shall follow them that believe: In My Name they shall cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and the shall recover.” (Mark 16). It is high time to believe the promises that come from the mouth of the Lord. For man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord shall man live.
For you have passed from death to life. Jesus promises you: “Truly I say unto you, He that hears My Word, and believes in Him that sent Me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” Let us not frustrate the grace of God, for Christ lives in you “The life that you now live, you live by the Faith of the Son of God, Who loves you and gave Himself for you. He is faithful Who promised, and He will do it.
