God's priority for your life is for you to live! More than that, God desires that you live your life more abundantly. God intended that you be the head and not the tail; at the top and not the bottom; the lenders and not the borrower. He expects your life to be light to those around you who are confused, depressed, oppressed and suppressed. Many "church members" have missed this! Somewhere along the way, "church members" have focused so much on gaining material things and have forgotten to live the life that is before them. Have you reduced the joy of life to simply conforming to the world -- a life which is and never will be satisfying or fulfilled. Jesus said, "I have come that you may have life, and that you may have it more abundantly! "(John lO:lONKN)
You must begin a journey to Higher Ground, and come to understand that the abundance of life that God promised is dependent on your willingness to be transformed by the renewing of your mind. As a born again, transformed believer, you must discover that His Word [logos] becomes alive in you. His word brings you hope and security even in dark and gloomy situations. His Word brings clarity to every decision - no matter how difficult or critical the choices may be. A transformed believer realizes that there is nothing that can take you where God's Word cannot keep you. "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (KN) There is life -- more abundant life in the Word of God!
My prayer is for Him to Breathe on you. The Higher you go the thinner the air ... the harder it is to breathe ... the more difficult it is to climb. Jesus never promised that the way would not be difficult. We can follow Him to higher places because He is the Way that made a way! God will unleash incomprehensible blessings if you persevere.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
