Progression not Regression
And because of the increase of wickedness many will be discouraged and grow cold BUT he who endures to the end shall be saved. Matthew 24:12-13
If we were to examine the world or church around us at large we would realize that the majority have given up on life. Maybe not in the physical sense because people still go to work and still show up at church… but they have given up on life internally (the inside).
They’ve allowed the chaos of the world and the persecution and oppression they face from the enemy to get to them thus turning them cold and even steering some off the path of righteousness.
Obstacles will occur in your (my) life to DISTRACT ,DISTORT and DIVERT us from the road to destiny but I rather travel on a Rocky road going SOMEWHERE than on a Smooth road going NOWHERE.
Life will pass you by if you are immobile that’s why God wants us to be progressive, he wants us to move higher to go where wève never gone before AND to push pass the LIMITATIONS.
You cannot afford to miss out on any opportunities God has presented before you because you are concerned with whats happening around you. Your too gifted to sit down and let life pass you by ,you need to get up and take your life back from the snare of the fowler and make your life work.
To be progressive is to ; move forward or onward in space or time towards an area, or destination.
To regress is to; return to a former or less developed state. It’s the act of going back to a thing that didn’t benefit you when you were in it in the first place.
Our God is a progressive God, his word is not only quick but its ACTIVE … its always in MOTION, so as believers we cannot afford to go back into old chapters of our lives or revert back to a lesser quality of ourselves we must always be on the rise.
The word of God is clear in Matthew 24:13 it says that the one that endures will be SAVED. To ENDURE is not to live a fruitless, pitiful life in hopes that Jesus will come back soon and save us from our misery but it is to hold out against the pressure of life without GIVING IN and GIVING UP.
To ENDURE is to continue on with the same attitude you had when everything was going right in your life…your attitude determines your LATTITUDE and your LOT in life.
Endure until the end you can’t look back you can’t go back, you have to stay on the road you may get tired you may get weary but Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30 To come to him if we are weighed down and need rest, if we take his yoke, take his weight it is easy , his yoke is light and he will give us rest for our souls.
Anything worth having is worth FIGHTING and WORKING for so stay in the ring and FIGHT.
PICK UP YOUR BED AND WALK !!!
Just wanted to leave this poem I wrote with you all as an encouragement to face each day..with a better perspective…Poetry/Words are my therapy;0
Dawning of a new Day
While the day unfolds and future challenges awakens..
Still I rise
I rise to the dawning of a new day, even when a part of me wants to dig a hole and and stay there.
Stay where Im hidden ,unchallenged ,comfortable ,where my integrity will not be tested or my decisions would not be provoked by the opinions and retort of others ..
As misery and unfulfillment, uncertainty and anxiety towards future events havoc over me..
Still I rise..
I rise because its a new day which brings forth new opportunities that I can take to change the path I walk towards my destiny-
I refuse to wallow in self pity…..Instead I rise because he that begin a work in me shall continue until the coming of Christ Jesus
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
You are Depressed because your Oppressed I heard a still voice say to me tonight as I reflected on the burden I felt within me.
Your oppressed by the expectation and opinion of men,by the expectation you have for self,by the disappointments and setbacks that
robbed you of progression over the years.
ButBehold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
I come that you may have life and have it more abundantly there you are not looking back on the things of old but you are pressing towards the higher calling of my name and out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water …
Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
The holy spirit said to me rivers carry life and brings forth sustenance to those that needs it. I am that living water.and with this encouragement I thanked God for setting me free .
Thank you for peace and liberty….
