Exploration and confirmation of who I am despite roles and expectation.
Often times, we are rushed by life – obligations, expectations, and anything else we can imagine. In such time, we make quick decisions and execute actions almost by rote memory. And once the dust has settled, we realize that what we have is not really what we wanted but we had to do something. We figure that something is better than nothing until we realize that what we exactly have is nothing!
This nothing is not that we can’t see something but it is not the fullness of our desire. There are times that this must suffice and you realize the blessedness of having something, being grateful. And there are other times, that our works just weren’t coupled with faith resulting in nothingness. Only through relationship and practice can we manifest greater works unto righteousness and our own satisfaction. But note there is not a quick fix or action to seeing ourselves in another space. There is only a path…
The path that God sets for you is a race where you are your own competitor. God is the cheerleader, the coach, and the path-maker. The smartest action/step to be taken is found in Proverbs 9:10 (KJV), ‘The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” One step at a time in the right direction moves us along the path of making. The choice to live in the awareness that God is great and worthy of praise and honor; honoring his being and deity is where wisdom is found. Reading the word of God and engaging in conversations with those who believe and live for Jesus helps us to do this. God shares with those who value Him. Then comes knowledge of Him that brings us into understanding, not only of Him but of ourselves.
Regular honor with continual understanding helps to build our lives and realize destiny. Be encouraged to take one step at a time. Refusing the pressure and obligation, derive your peace from your most important relationship which is with the Lord. He guides, secures and ensures your success. We have already won the race because He has secured our victory. Let’s learn to live it out by taking one step at a time.
