Spring forward or break through? So many get the two confused. One thinks that going forward means that they are approved in the action they take. Yet they do not seem to notice, their footing has begun to shake.
I will allow you to find your path for a time without My guide; to test you and allow you to try your wings–your style. But there comes a time when, if we are not conferring on the path taken…
You may find I AM no longer there.
You didn’t notice at first, My absence, you were so busy forging your way, but then you found you became more and more tired come the end of your day. And you wondered…
Lord, why are you not helping me? Why do you not lead?
But where were you that morning when I met you and you barely glanced My way? Now it seems a wall has risen and its for break-through that you pray, and still more tired it seems you’ve become toward the end of your day.
My love, never did I leave you–you are never far from Me. I merely chose to give you the lead and allow you to find your way. In this you found that forward doesn’t always mean moving in the right direction, but the break-through you seek is right close at hand–with only a small correction.
Follow My Lead…
“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his saints.” Proverbs 2:6-8
“Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalms 119:105
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2
“Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Never flag in zeal, be aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints, practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute, you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly; never be conceited. Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God; for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” No, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:9-21
“Thus says the Lord of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy each to his brother, do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, or the poor; and let none of you devise evil against his brother in your heart.” Zechariah 7:9-10
“But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until the full day.” Proverbs 4:18
“For there shall be a sowing of peace and prosperity; the vine shall yield its fruit, and the ground shall give its increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.” Zechariah 8:12
