THE JOURNEY OF of a life of SIGNIFICANCE (2)
He daily leads us in triumphal procession, makes our lives an aroma of praise, calves of incense of honor. He enables us to run through troops and leap over walls and plants our feet on His rock to stay. We find a place by Him, a secret place, a place of refuge, a place of rest, a well- watered garden. No foe can reach us. No storm can phase us. Our boat will never capsize because the Author and Finisher is not only in the boat but at helm of our affairs- the Captain of the boat. We shall reach the other side despite the squall, the boisterous, ferocious and tempestuous ill-wind.
In the Rock we hide; in His shadow we abide; in His word we abide. His blood speaks better things for us than the blood of bulls and goats. We use the valley of Bacca as a place of spring, using it as a springboard, a lift, to take us from glory to glory and from strength to strength. And when we experience the winter and fire of Ziklag we shine in the night, encourage ourselves like David, seek His face, hear His voice, and pursue, overtake and recover all. We put on the whole armor of God, don our helmet of salvation, breastplate of right standing, the shoes of the gospel of peace and readiness, ensure we have the belt of truth to expose the lie of the enemy; we take the shield of faith above all to quench, extinguish every flaming arrow of the enemy. And we take the sword of the spirit-the word of God and we charge, go on the offensive and fight and win in Him.
THE JOURNEY To a Life OF SIGNIFICANCE (3)
The journey of significance takes me the distance- a great distance. Not by might, nor by power but by the Spirit of God.
Therefore it’s forward ever and backward never, eyes on Jesus-Author and Finisher.
I’m destined for great glory!
Yes, the lions that surface on this road will be mauled like David did. The bears that show up will meet their waterloo in Jesus’ name.
The Goliaths that huff and puff will bite the dust. Principalities and powers shall be disarmed and made a public spectacle.
Yes, even though the gate of this journey is narrow and difficult its way, it is the Gate
of Life and the Way- New and Living way, paved by the blood Jesus.
God gives me the grace and wisdom to navigate difficult terrain and by His Spirit He makes crooked places straight and enables me to go through rivers and waters and valleys and come out on top on the other side, rugged, rigid, robust, refined and shining like gold to the glory of God.
