And We Begin Again....
This time with celebrations of gaiety freshly cemented in our minds, we plough ahead.
This time, we carry with us, learned instruction - experience we resolve to use... THIS time.
THIS time though, is different.... Time has been lessened....
We cannot use what we applied in the past because we have run out of that time!
Nevertheless, we begin again.... With fresh determination... we set out...
Will we ever come into the knowledge of the truth? If we continue to pursue goals based upon what WE want, time after time, without noticing our failed unfulfilled objectives, something is wrong! There is a divine order to acquiring and achieving everything that pertains to life, and it begins in the realm of the unseen. Faith!
Walking by faith, however, does not mean we can decree a thing (including resolutions) and expect them to materialize! There has to be an initiated origin. And WHAT is this origin? This origin is the “measure of faith” seed deposited unto our spirit. When it emerges in the natural though, It’s often bypassed, kicked to the curb, and despised. It gets trampled upon in our hurried pace to nab that appealing object of our affection! This itty bitty piece of “originating substance”, also known as “small beginnings” shows up unpolished, unpopular, and plain, just as the tree of life appeared in the Garden - undesired and rejected. This treasure is our passport unto levels and launches needed to DO exploits of the Lord - the “greater works”!
As we become thankful faithful stewards in the small, God promises to add. Because it’s HIS desire to hold no good thing from us, HE alone orders the time and place! Interpretation: Good Expected End!
It’s set-up time in the earth! If we’d take time to wait before the maker of time, we’d gain a hearing ear, get the revelation of the “substance” HE has specifically entrusted to each of us, allowing HIS plans to manifest in demonstration. Oh let us all see the bigger picture!
The search is on for vessels HE can show HIMSELF strong through! When GOD establishes a business, awards a gift, or anoints an idea, it for HIS purposes, and becomes HIS business. Can HE use ours?
Or will we begin again... at the onset of another year.... without HIM....
Except the LORD build the house.... they labor in vain that build it. Psalm 127:1
For with GOD, nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37
But without faith, it is impossible to please HIM... Hebrews 11:6
