Opening your eyes each morning is your confirmation that God has a Divine assignment for you, a fresh and new opportunity to start again.
Take a moment to reflect on that: any regret, negative thought or event that lived in your “yesterday” isn’t joining you in your NEW day! God’s mercies are new and your past has done just that…PASSED!
When we wake, He guides us, leads us, and positions us to succeed. This should bring excitement and hope. Everything that has or will happen is woven into God’s perfect plan to bless you.
Although we do not know the exact steps to take to move us into the new season God has ready for us, we can be sure to trust the process and HIS guidance to move you through.
If you look around and realize, “there must be more God has for me than this.” You’re right! So, be comforted and filled with hope today, God IS moving you through. He did not bring you to where you are to keep you there—you are only passing through.
” God will never leave you stuck, broken, hurt, or alone
under conditions where you are unable to grow in Christ
or prosper in HIS will for your life.”
You may feel trapped and forgotten, or disappointed and broken. But God is at your side. He will never allow the people around you to stop you from fulfilling His precious and peaceful plan for your life.
The world and those who are controlled by it may form ways to harm you or delay you, But GOD’s Word promises that when the weapons form…they CANNOT PROSPER.
NO ONE and NOTHING can stop the Divine plans God wants you to be a part of—YOU belong to God!
The attacks that form around you, the adversary uses to belittle you, minimize or destroy your worth and value. The ones with a focused purpose to steal from you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, are NOT from God, nor are the person or people who deliver the attack.
God will not allow HIS child to be devoured or forgotten, nor will He allow for HIS plans in your life to be ruined by anyone, especially those NOT walking in the Fruit of the Spirit, who set themselves up to bring conflict or harm your way.
“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:10-12 NLT
It would be a great disservice to your own spiritual growth and to the movement of God’s plan for you in this life to leave you in a place that is no longer fruitful. A place where you can’t be built up, or spiritually nurtured, a place where your mental, emotional and spiritual health are unable to grow and succeed.
Sometimes when the hurt, loss, dread, or destruction around us is large enough, we forget that our growth and the process of transformation takes place in the “passing through lane”.
We must not get it backwards; God’s Word does not say that no weapon will form against us. It promises that no weapon that does form against us will prosper!
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue
which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their
righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17 NKJV
Keep yourself in the Word, draw near to the Lord, and walk according to His Spirit. Take comfort today, you are only passing through, and the people and circumstances in front of you will SOON be a distant place you once stopped off at on your journey down the “passing through lane.”
Great, Glorious and Wondrous things are waiting ahead just for you, as God passes you through!
Live generously, give discretely, and abound in offering grace everywhere your feet go.
