Wisdom to Go the Distance

Last week, I publish a post titled “Fashioned for Greatness”, where I spoke about the importance of knowing who our Heavenly Father is and about how the “know” is attached to the to our purpose.  Since we already discussed this important element, today’s blog post is the perfect transition to talk about the “why”.

You are not experiencing life; you are experiencing your interpretation of life.

When that thought came to mind my first response was “Dude, how can that be”? Yet, it is so so true.

I am my own limiting factor.

If I begin to compare myself with someone else’s highlight reel and I start to live my life focused on someone else’s lane, I will N E V E R run towards achieving my destination.

The word go is not the father’s plan to disorient you but His attempt to develop you.

Where you look at is where your car is going.

He will do the showing, if you will do the going.

Faith is an interpretation of progress even in the midst of pain.

What is on you is subject to what is in you.

The “know” and the “why” are interrelated. As you stretch forward to the arms of the father, you begin to see what God sees and you have an eager expectation as to what is ahead of you. Your priority is no longer on the problem but on the one who has the solution. It was Paul who wrote in to the church in Philippi the following “I continue to pray for your love to grow and increase beyond measure, bringing you into the rich revelation of spiritual insight in all things. This will enable you to choose the most excellent way of all- becoming pure and without offense until the unveiling of Christ”. (Philippians 1:9-10 TPT) When love, revelation, and insight overflow into our discernment, we will always be looking for what is excellent and pleasing in God’s eyes.

When Christ’s cause truly underpins your life, you will discover meaning and purpose and your life will never be the same again.

“We were meant for unbroken circles not for cycles of brokenness.” – Steffany Gretzinger

God everyone sees your goodness, for your tender love is blended into everything that you do. (Psalm 145:9) I can’t help but quote two amazing worshippers after God’s own heart. They summarize the importance of understanding the “know” and the “why”. The imagery wrapped in the words describe exactly what happens when we have that daily communion with the Father and we allow the spirit to move and operate in our lives, overflowing into e v e r y t h i n g that we do.
