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 !!!
Tell me…………………. What do you do when your gray skies wont turn blue, when you look to the left but there’s trouble there too, you look to the right expecting something new, something that can give you some sort of clue as to why the Lord is allowing you to go through… this PROCESS….
You look up to the sky expecting some sort of sign from The Most High, the one you always rely on, but hes M.I.A….Missing in Action ….so it would seems….. but really he just wants you to go through so that he can purge you….and allow your faith to build RESISTANCE.
Resistance builds muscles that your Faith can use to HUSTLE against life’s hard REBUTTALS… because he knows ..YOU CAN HANDLE IT.
So what do I do when everything is in and over my head… I smile and I stand I don look to the left or right but I look above because God is not M.I.A hes just paving the way
