Turning Aside

Turning Aside

God’s presence is often detected in the details of our lives. When we take the time to look for Him, we find He is there, always. He can be seen on the scene of every happening in our lives.

God saw Moses turn aside to observe the supernatural manifestation of the burning bush and then God spoke to him, calling him from the midst of the bush. When we take the time to turn aside to pay attention to the Lord’s presence, we can expect God to communicate with us in greater ways. When we draw nigh unto Him, He draws nigh unto us. Communication is directly linked to communion. God knows how to get our attention and will continue until we pay attention to Him. When we turn to Him for every need, we find His word feeds us, indeed.

Our God sees us seek Him and delights in being found. We seek Him until we see Him. We see Him in the small things and often in unexpected ways. Distractions come to try to take us aside and steal our time to turn aside. By God’s grace, we can stay tuned into the voice of the Lord. We look to Him, from glory to glory!

Exodus 3:3 “Then Moses said, ‘I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.’ So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, ‘Moses, Moses!’ And he said, ‘Here I am.’ ”

 

Staying in the Lane

Staying in the Lane

Each of us has our own lane. Pressures and distractions come and try to move us out of our place, but God knows how to keep us in His lane! We are never to compete with others.

When we drive on a highway, we may see some who move too fast or too slow. Others may not be paying attention to the road or other vehicles. As long as others stay focused on their own journey, our destination is not affected. The moment they try to move us out of our place, the battle can begin. For example, another car drives very close behind us to try to force us to move. The more we ignore them, the closer they follow. They try to make us react in anger and start a race or competition with another car on the road. The result could be a crash.

In our lives, pressures come to move us out of position. Keeping our peace as we maintain boundaries, can only be achieved by the grace of God. Distractions can appear to be good, but may not be God’s best. A short cut may seem better, but ends up lengthening our journey. Trusting the lane God has us in and having confidence in His leading helps us stay in His lane. We keep our eyes on the Lord and follow His instructions, from glory to glory!

Psalms 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.” 

 

Do Not Come Down!

Do Not Come Down!

Our adversary always tries to get us to come down from our place of victory. As a child of God, we are in Christ; in the spirit we are sitting in the heavens. We are above and not beneath, in a place of safety, moving forth with great authority and anointing as we obey God.

When we put our faith into action and obey God, opposition increases to try and stop us. To be an ambassador of Christ is a great work and all believers are called to it, with no exceptions. When we are a doer of the Word, satan sends his lies to try and cause us to detour from our course. Satan not only is like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, but he also disguises himself as an angel of light. He will try to move us from our walk of faith by bringing things to us that appear to be good, but they are to distract us and delay our plans and purposes.

As we know our position in Christ, we are able to stay up and not come down from our place of victory, no matter the circumstances. Being an Ambassador of Christ becomes our priority in all that we do. The opposition that comes through distractions is easily detected. We are not ignorant of the schemes of satan. We do not leave the great work we are doing to go down to anything that calls us down. We ask the Lord and obey Him, and Him alone, from glory to glory!

Nehemiah 6:3 “So I sent messengers to them, saying, ‘I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and go down to you?’ ”
