Deuteronomy 7: 22-23
And the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you little by little … But the Lord your God will deliver them over to you, and will inflict defeat upon them until they are destroyed.
People don’t see breakthrough in their lives because they want to see the whole picture upfront.
But God gives you breakthrough one step at a time. You have to be ready to take each small step as it opens up to you.
You can drive a journey of 1000 miles with light for only 250 ft! If you keep driving the short distance you can see, you will cover the full distance, even though you only ever saw 250ft at any one time.
That is how it is walking with God.
One of the most vital things I have ever understood about God is that He will never mismanage my life. Even when I don’t understand, and I don’t know the path ahead, I know God; I know His nature, and I trust Him; therefore I have the confidence to take the next step.
This simple discipline enables me to commit to the path that He opens up for me without reservation.
Consequently, many people have never committed to a God-given vision such as the El-Shaddai vision, because they cannot immediately see how their own dreams and desires will be fulfilled in the context of that vision.
What they don’t realize is that until you throw yourself at something with all your heart, there are certain things in God that are not available to you.
If you are interested in finding out what living really is all about, I submit these two challenges to you:
- Find someone to give your whole self to completely and don’t hold back. Men especially have to make a conscious decision to build a life with someone and stop playing the field. Women are more ready to do this, and their pain is that their man is not all there.
- Discover your purpose, which will be manifested in the context of a vision such as ours, since God called us to His body, not to an independent life; and then give yourself to it as if you had no questions. See what God will do when you give Him your whole strength to make His purposes come to pass; and entrust your personal ambitions to Him.
Take the next step. Trust God and decide that He is faithful. You will discover a whole new life in Him.
