In just one week, I’ve been blessed to minister to several who have heard the Lord’s voice give them a “prayer assignment” and calling them on a journey!
I’m not talking about Preachers, Pastors or Evangelists! I’m talking about folks going about their everyday life and “suddenly” the Spirit of God is speaking to them specifically to do something “out of the ordinary.”
Perhaps you too have had that urgency within you and you’re not quite sure. Stop and check it out! Was that idea your idea or did it come from God? Follow it and yield to Holy Spirit. Chances are this “idea” has been growing in your heart for a while.
Consider this article and follow God’s Leading. He may have a new direction for you! Prepare to do the EXTRAORDINARY‼️
What a “Journey our life is!” And as we travel the paths of our destiny, we know that “the steps of a man are established by the Lord” (Ps. 37:23).
... I like to add, “And the STOPS of a man are established by the Lord as well!” (That’s from the book of “Sheliah”!)
Therefore, we should not be surprised when something seems to be “in the way” or “distracting” and slows you down – or stops you! “We can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good” (Romans.8:28 MSG).
As we “journey” through these days of what is being called a pandemic, we are learning to trust Him day-by-day (or as Christy Lane sang it: “One Day at A Time”).
Today I was reminded how each of us has a different “journey” and yet we each know that we can trust God in all things. Then as I was praying, the Lord reminded me of your Journey of Life, and I want to encourage you with these words:
1. “They treated us royally, took care of all our needs and outfitted us for the rest of the journey” (Acts 28:10). And the Lord says to you – “Don’t get in a hurry; I’m directing your every step. And if there seems to be ‘delays’ know that I AM making sure that everything is in order for your journey. I have prepared the way for you. Take the next step.”
2. “The promise of ‘arrival’ and ‘rest’ is still there for God’s people. God Himself is at rest. And He wants us to rest in Him. So let’s keep at it …” (Hebrews 4:10) Our Father says, “Keep on Keeping On.” He has brought you this far and He will carry you safely through!
3. “Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God … He paid with Christ’s sacred blood, you know. He died like an unblemished, sacrificial lamb. God always knew He was going to do this for you … trust God, and know that you have a future in Him.” 1 Peter 1:18-21 … (Enough said!)
What great promises are ours – even in the worst of circumstances! Ours is an Outrageous Life – Full of His Glory and Grace! He is carrying us on this Extraordinary Journey and directing our steps and our stops! ~ #MamaSheliah 💝
