Our journey not like Jesus journey to the Cross
Thou our path has some similarities and crossing some of the same lines, its’ not the same as his.
We all have been given a journey that we must take to come to grips of who we really are.
We must face many facts about this world and about how our flesh response to the things of this world.
We must face the simple and factorial truth that we are in this world for a purpose and reason, but we are not from this world.
1 Peter 2:11 NIV
Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.
When we talk about our journey we take heed of the paths that we must take in order to get there.
Many of you will start at home where most of the beginning tests are and take its toll on you mentally and spiritually.
Tests that require you to maintain love in the mist of frustration and anguish
Love conquers and covers all thou it seems impossible.
How can you win?
By staying in faith
Romans 12:2 ESV
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Prayer before and after entering in the mist of what seems to be impossible odds helps you to stay focus on the reasons why this is happening.
As I have spoken to you before about all things happening for a reason and purpose, so that you can receive and gain experiences you never had before.
You must realize at take note of the time when to leave a certain situation.
Though the door is there and it remains open, you must feel spiritually when it’s time to leave and maybe come back another day.
You will need spiritual rejuvenation.
That’s when you being a spirit and living in a flesh body face much opposition that war against the spirit, but sometimes takes its toll on you mind.
The flesh is weak, that’s why when the flesh is under great pressure from life it sometimes make mistakes that could slow your journey down or in some cases stop you for a season.
Realizing your journey and the path that you must take are important to how you handle tests and trials.
1 Peter 1:7 NLT
These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold — and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.
What kind of tests and trials are on your journey you must face?
Well, there are tests and trails for just simple human life.
There are those that you will need to discover and go through survival of normal everyday life.
Then the most important ones are those that you will need to go through and master, so to speak, in order to gain experiences for the vision God gave you from the beginning.
We all know about us being sent here for a purpose and you know by now that your destiny is tide to Heaven’s purpose for this world and the many that are here to carry out God’s vision.
So, if you are seeing things that could be something that looks like something God would want to do, then that’s mostly like is how you will affect this world.
If you reading this and you are still asking yourself what’s my purpose and destiny, then you will need to spend time away from selfish desires and place your thoughts on someone other that yourself.
And if you have been not seeking selfish desires and still don’t see what it is that God has for you to do, then waiting is one way and the other is reading the word so that God may speak to you.
Sometimes the vision that is within you needs to be awakened.
God’s Word talks about stirring up the gifts inside you.
This is what you need to happen in order to believe and achieve what you need to effectively begin your journey.
I Timothy 4:14-16 (amplified)
Do not neglect the gift which is in you, which was directly imparted to you by prophetic utterance (Holy Spirit), when the elders laid their hands upon you.
Practice and cultivate and mediate upon these duties, throw yourself wholly into them (your calling), so that your progress may be evident to everybody.
Look well to yourself (to your own personality) and to (your) teaching; persevere in these things-hold to them; for by so doing you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
For some your journey might be little long, but that’s ok depending own what experiences you have need of to get you there.
Everyone is not at the same place in life.
Everyone mentally and spiritually is not the same and is not on the same level.
One might also get there faster than the other, but don’t be dismayed or marvel at what speed another get to his or her destiny.
Lift them up and prompt them so that you might be inspired to reach yours soon and with all the tools you will need to carry out your destiny.
I hope that this have inspired you and prepared you in someway to be strong and take up your cross and prepare for your journey.
Luke 9:23 ESV
And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
The journey has just begun.
