Don't Settle Keep Climbing

May 02, 2017

Isn’t it amazing that God can move on our behalf, and in a moment of crisis, come through with just the right answer or provision for that hour? And then, isn’t it even more amazing when He does it again…and again…and again? But as amazing as this is, I find it even more amazing that when we go through the next major crisis we suffer from amnesia and immediately forget all the times He has come through for us. Satan is the great deceiver, and if he can create just enough doubt, then he can set up a stronghold that keeps us from the high place God has called us to.

 

And so it is with us. We can know that we know that God is calling us to the next place, the next step in our journey. Yet, rather then remembering God’s legacy of faithfulness in our past, we choose to see our physical limitations and surface circumstances through human eyes using human logic. We turn back in discouragement, because we know that we know we are settling for less than God’s best.

My oh my, how easy it would be to settle right where you are, in the land of familiar rather than take the risk of getting out of that boat. The problem is you know that you know you have been called to get out of that boat.

 

You have a legacy—the DNA of tried and tested faith. And God is calling you to do even greater things than you did before, maybe in a different field, in a different way, or a different place, but you’re going higher not lower. You need to believe that as you go up, the strongholds are coming down in Jesus’ name. Never trust your eyes in matters of faith. And rather than count the cost, instead remember and consider the many times God has come through … even when it seemed impossible.

 

 

Life Defining Questions:

 

FROZEN!!! Are you going through something that seems IMPOSSIBLE?

 

BUT!!!  Hasn’t God come through in your life time and time again?

 

STOP!!! Take inventory. Remember God’s legacy in your life. He will not let you down.

 

MOVE OUT!!! Take that next step of faith. Take that risk. Make that phone call. Plan on that financial mountain to be moved…SOON!!

 

Tell me about your mountain in a few paragraphs or less.

God has been using me to heal people at my school. I have usually gotten to pray over people who have casts, boots, or braces, as well as people who are on crutches and in wheelchairs. I have seen some get healed, but now I am being called to heal a blind kid that attends my school as well, and since I have never prayed over a blind person before, I am pretty nervous about it. I also have a lot of breakthroughs that need to happen in my life and I know that God is using what I am doing to not only make them happen but to also impact other people's lives for him and further my relationship and my spiritual growth in him so that I can accomplish all that he has called me to do. As of right now, the blind kid is the only blind person at my school, I'm just really nervous about praying over him since I have never prayed over a blind person before.
