Extra! Extra!

Extra! Extra!

As much as we seek the more of God, God seeks the more for us. In order to bring us to what He has for us, the Lord leads us to challenge ourselves. Less of our flesh and more of the spirit causes us to press through our human limitations. Through our Divine Identity we witness His abilities flowing through us to reach for the above and beyond.

We challenge our bodies when we work out in the natural. In the spirit, we are driven by the Lord to challenge ourselves. Whatever time we read the Word, pray or worship will be increased as we exercise our faith. As we minister to others, we will reach out again and again and walk in a greater measure of love, patience and gentleness. We purpose to excel. The difference Jesus makes in our lives can be seen by our diligence, perseverance and endurance. We don’t seek to be perfect, but to be excellent, because that’s who Christ is in our lives. It means we make errors but don’t give up. Instead of fear of failure we have faith to succeed, from strength to strength.

In Christ we are extra ordinary people, going the extra mile, doing extra on our jobs, and taking extra steps in our relationships. We do the best we can with what we have moment by moment, from glory to glory!

Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” 

 

Swiftly!

Swiftly!

A hind is a female deer. She is able to move easily and rapidly across rocks and uneven terrain. She leaps from rock to rock without losing her footing. On the side of a mountain she uses her front feet to test for loose rocks. When she finds firm ground she places her back feet in the exact spot her front feet were in. This testing protects her from slipping and falling down the mountain and helps her make way for her young.

God makes our feet like hind’s feet, and they are a powerful weapon in our warfare. Our feet have been shod by our God with a supernatural ability to walk and possess territories for His glory. It describes our ability, in Christ, to overcome any challenge. We test the ground in front of us with God’s word. The Word may be tested—but will be found sure. God tells us to trust Him: at first we do it with one foot, but as we find we are secure, we then go all the way. We follow our Lord’s footsteps and are established on solid ground.

With agility and confidence we go from height to height. Adversities are overcome with ease as we are set on high places and prevented from falling. He trains us to have surety in our steps so we don’t lose ground—but are set on high places, from glory to glory!

Psalms 18:33 “He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places.”
