Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied!”
Crawling, then walking;
running, then soaring:
sequential and linear
Shown without shortcut
or skipping a “step”…so
follows our spiritual growth.
For thus HE designed
our souls to progress…
if just by that “step”
So! Forward movement,
with eyes set on
CHRIST; is the only
HIS step directions,
then “Onward!” and
“Up!”, shall guide you
to grow in HIS NAME!
As HIServant daily pressing into the footprints HE made for us,
Devotional: Colossians 1:9-10 “And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you…
…asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of HIS will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding,
…so as to walk in a manner worthy of the LORD, fully pleasing to HIM,
…bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of GOD.”
Glory! Praise HIM! Our progression in faith will be greatest marked by unceasing prayer and daily deep study of HIS WORD.
Our direction must be unwavering with steps upwards and forwards — in motion.
It’s not news or unknown to us but it is noteworthy as a needed reminder.
Let’s not slip into stagnation, even after a high point / mountain top experience from two weeks ago or less!
Spiritual attacks are on the increase so we must meet this challenge with the strength and love of the ONE WHO sent us out into the world…to change it for HIS NAME!
Wear HIS armor daily with sights set on stepping and leveling up!
2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. To HIM be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen!”
Lift us with YOUR great presence, LORD GOD and we give thanks for eternal life in Heaven with YOU.
Amen and amen!
