Beloved, as you explore uncharted waters and pioneer in new areas out of your comfort zone, donâ€™t look back to old ways of thinking and doing. Donâ€™t be tempted to get into boats founded out of fear for they are destined to capsize in the unrelenting rapids of life.
I know there have been good times and moments in the past when you thought you had turned the corner in reference to specific concerns in your life only to find yourself in the same old quagmireâ€¦to find yourself back in the land of the unchanged.
When you find yourself in an old place condemnation comes and causes you to not see any progress you might have made. Not only does the enemy want you condemned, he doesnâ€™t want you to acknowledge any progress either. This might help create a grateful heart and he canâ€™t have that.
Therefore, be very aware and donâ€™t make mountains out of mole hills. Besides, the way back is quick and easy. It is called receiving forgiveness and remembering My mercy triumphs over judgment. Holding on to any past thing in lieu of moving forward keeps you in a narrow place full of sinking sand and not on the Rock. Remember, I am unchanging but ever moving. I am the Rock. I am the chief Cornerstone, and if you trust in Meâ€¦believe in Me, you will never be disappointed (1 Peter 2:5-7).
It will help you to remember that there are many acts in a play and your life is not a one act play. I have given you the Script and I am the author of every syllable. I wrote the Script and fulfilled the covenant on which it stands. Just as I wrote the Script I have also written one for your life. I will change what needs to be changed and nothing above or below can stop Me.
Beloved, there are more acts to come, so donâ€™t leave the play by walking in doubt and unbelief regardless of what scene is taking place in front of you. Leave the past behind where it belongs, and, donâ€™t leave the play before the curtain opens on the next scene (Philippians 3:11-14). No matter how many scenes you have sat through, there is always hope because of Me. I always have the last word. All actors, set hands, chorographers, and such will bow their knee and submit to Me.
Come into agreement with Me and you will indeed see as I see. Come up high on the Rock and look from a heavenly high place perspective. Resist passivity and dare to go beyond where you have journeyed before. Embraced uncharted waters of freedom, Rocks of provision, and reflections of glory for you are a precious jewelâ€¦a royal diademâ€¦a cherished treasure and one I love to adorn Myself withâ€¦Read Complete Love Letter
That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body]. Not that I have now attained [this ideal], or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own. I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward. (Philippians 3:11-14 Amplified)
[Come] and, like living stones, be yourselves built [into] a spiritual house, for a holy (dedicated, consecrated) priesthood, to offer up [those] spiritual sacrifices [that are] acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ. For thus it stands in Scripture: Behold, I am laying in Zion a chosen (honored), precious chief Cornerstone, and he who believes in Him [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] shall never be disappointed or put to shame. To you then who believe (who adhere to, trust in, and rely on Him) is the preciousness; but for those who disbelieve [it is true], The [very] Stone which the builders rejected has become the main Cornerstone (1 Peter 2:5-7 Amplified)
Lord, I am so excited to explore the destiny and purpose of my lifeâ€¦to pioneer through uncharted waters already laid out for me. I choose to dismiss any boat of fear which passes near my heart and encourages me to believe in a lie. I abandon fear at all cost. Many times I have been on the right track only to be derailed by some circumstance of life. The beautiful thing about that is how You worked even those to my good, making me strong and resilient for this day and time.
Therefore Lord, I declare myself to be one who does not get bound up in self-criticism or condemnation. You have set me free and I am free indeed. I choose to walk according to the truth and will not allow the enemy to have my grateful heart. My life is more than a one act play and will continue to unfold one scene at a time with You as the Master Script Writer of the play called; My Life. I will not walk out. I will not give up. The best is yet to come for the Lord always has the last Word and my life is no exception.
Lord, I come up high on the Rock and choose to look at all things from heavenly places where I am seated in You. I embrace change and the uncharted waters of my destiny as it unfolds one moment at a t time. I am truly Your royal diadem, Your favorite one, Your cherished treasure and most of all, I am a reflection of your glory by which the world will know of Your great freedom, love and power. Amen
- What do you do when the Lord calls you out of your comfort zone? Do you fear or get anxious but plow on through or do you retreat out of fear of failure? Donâ€™t be afraid to make mistakes. We all do and we all will. So, realize this and take a hold of forgiveness in such a way that you become unstoppable and unafraid.
- When you have made a mistake, do you negate the progress you have made? It would be kind of like a person on a diet who eats what they shouldnâ€™t and then says, â€śWell, I messed up so I might as well eat what I want.â€ť We can do this in subtle and profound ways. It is best to say, â€śI messed up but am starting over right this minute.â€ť After all, the Lord does not remember your sinâ€¦your mistakeâ€¦as you repent they are separated as far as East from West.
- Contemplate your life being like a play with many acts all unfolding at the Masters hand. Knowing this should make you more willing to go along with the Script. Realize one bad act doesnâ€™t determine the outcome of the playâ€¦only your choice to live in the scene does.
- Take some time to meditateâ€¦see yourself standing on a high and solid rock on a tall and lofty mountain. How far can you see? How far from the danger below are you? This is on a natural plane and the view seems to be forever. Imagine coming up quite a bit higher to the Rock Himselfâ€¦to the heavenly place where you have already been seated in Christ. What is your perspective now? How far is trouble in this place? It is not that you do or donâ€™t have trouble. It is how you see it and the sovereignty of God in all things. Either He is the I AM or He isnâ€™t . What do you sayâ€¦who do you say He is to you?
