There is a process we must go through to attain all we seek to possess. Patience and perseverance are needed, and faith is tested when it is a long process. Knowing that we always progress helps us stay on course and stand by faith.
The process differs for each one of us, and it may be an unknown. We might think we have completed all that is necessary to reach a destination, and then find we have yet another step. Closures we thought we had might turn out to be continued matters. Also, our perception of our starting point might not be accurate. The where from is important in assessing the direction we are taking to a finishing point. Our progress becomes evident as we look at where we have come from, not at the place we have not yet reached. We never assume we have already arrived. Humbly we trust the Lord’s leading, moment by moment.
In the Lord, each phase is an achievement in itself. Our process is connected to our transformation in Christ, and we can rest assured of our progress. We are ready in and out of season. Every development we encounter draws us closer to Christ, our ultimate objective. We learn to enjoy the journey with peace, truly, from glory to glory!
