The river of God is always moving, always changing, and we must change with it.
With each battle won on the victorious battleground , change happens. Once you've conquered the enemy in a certain area, it's time to move on. We move ahead in the army of God, advancing His Kingdom. As long as we keep marching, we're changing because faith moves us ahead, step-by-step. If we don't give up, eventually we walk into the Promised Land of God's PURPOSE FOR OUR LIFE. Will there still be battles to win? Of course -- Christians reinforcing the victory won by Christ.
TAKING THE REQUIRED ACTION
The last command of Jesus while on earth says, "Go!" That's why we often see the anointing increase as we go, moving with the cloud. The Lord promises that His grace is sufficient and it will be there when you need it...not a moment before...not a moment after. The river will part as soon as we take the required action. How blessed we are to know that we can never travel beyond His care for us: "The Lord your God will be with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9).
Go ahead! Step out. Faith is spelled, R-I-S-K. We may not know exactly where we're going, but we do know Jesus, and He promises that that is enough. Consider Thomas who said, "Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?" Jesus answered,
"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well" (John 14:6).
Consider Abraham. "When called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going" (Hebrews 11:8).
PRESSING FORWARD INTO OUR CALLING
How exciting to know that change originates with the Creator of the Universe. "For we all with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord" (2 Corinthians 3:18). Press forward into your CALLING in Christ! Going backward is not an option -- glory doesn't go backwards.
In the beginning, God created when things were formless and empty (Genesis 1:1). God continues to create; He wants to create in US.
May we never be like the Pharisees who suffered from excessive reasoning. "Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely" (Mark 3:2).
The Lord has authored change, but if you're not walking in the newness that the Lord has authored in your life (God’s purpose for your life) -- in your mind you're still tied to the stake, going in circles around the post.
You are free, beloved! It's time to soar. "If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed" (John 8:36).
