There can be beauty in getting lost. But the beauty of it all is the journey of being found. You see, we once were lost, but now we are found. In each of us, His spirit is has been planted. It is up to us to find out ‘our created purpose’ – from the Spirit that dwells with us. You see My child , even though you have experienced moments when you were separated from me, and it seemed as if you were lost – you were not. God has instilled in us all this navigational device, to help us find our way back to Him. The beauty in it is when you realize you were never truly lost because He has been with you the entire length of your journey. It’s all just a part of your journey on the way to your final destination.
When you get over this hurdle the sun will shine on your face. You will remember what it cost you to get out of the hole you were in. Just because you made one mistake doesn’t mean it determines your destiny. God is a God of second chances. I’m with you, you are an extension of Me. I am the true vine, you are but a branch on the vine. Any branch that does not bear fruit, I pay extra special attention to it and make sure that it does bear fruit. Every branch that is and extension of Me has a purpose. And even though it may not be clear to you at this moment, it will be in time.
There have been moments when it was chaos, when things were not clear – but those bumps in the road were a mere test. For it is those tests that prepare you for my purpose. Moses was tested, Elijah’s was tested – all are tested. It’s when you put gold in the refiner’s fire that it reaches its purest form. I have placed each of you in a fire. You have been tested. I need to see that you are willing to serve me and not the world.
God humbles you in the breaking process, He makes you need him . You have to stop fighting Him and allow Him to help you through the process. What seems to be keeping you from moving forward will be your stepping stone in your future. Things are changing whether you feel it or not. You don’t want to allow your past to hinder you from moving into your future. God can lift you and you can be blessed. But you are secretly angry by hanging on to your past – and refusing to release it.
Take my yoke upon you and learn My way. In order to learn the new, you have you to let go of the old. You are putting to much energy into learning how to survive and to live somewhere you aren’t called to live. You’re living by the familiar, by sight. Faith is made for the place where sight fails us. You must remember – we walk by faith and not by sight. When our faith takes us to a new place, we won’t be happy if we can’t let go of the old. There are new rules and new experiences. You are never to late to move into your purpose. Believe in what God has put inside of you .
When you get to a new place remain quiet, be still – and know that I am God. You are in a new land and following a God Who will take you away from your past into something new.
