I will be with you when you pass through the waters, and when you pass through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. You will not be scorched when you walk through the fire, and the flame will not burn you.
Isaiah 43:2 HCSB
What would the rest of your day look like if fear, hesitation, and shame were gone?
What would the weekend of even the rest of the month be like? What about the next year?
In Isaiah we read of the confidence a believer can have of the Lord’s protection and guidance. This does not mean a life without struggles or hardships but a life empowered by the Hand of God, a life that knows that each breath, followed by each thought and moment, are those enhanced by God Himself.
Enhanced by a God that promises to lead and accompany us ON THE JOURNEY. A God that will not “settle” and will not torment, but the God that will not allow you to be overwhelmed, that will not allow you to get burned.
I want some of that. I want more of that.
True surrender to Christ means that despite our situations, relationships, and circumstances, we STAND UPRIGHT and JUSTIFIED through the Son. It means waking up tomorrow with an outlook of glory, hope, and expectation and dropping the fear, hesitation, and shame. It means even to stop reading right now and cry out with the prayers of your heart for His intervention in your life, that even RIGHT NOW you can begin to stand up straight and lift your eyes to the King of Life for everything you need.
There are millions of seasoned believers walking around right now with their heads hung low, wishing for something different for themselves, yet never ASKING for the remedy directly from our Father. What is the hold up? God has claimed you and I for Himself and in doing so, He has claimed victory over the sin and the patterns of darkness and above all, victory over death. Believers WILL know this feeling of empowerment as they meet in heaven but why the wait? I want some of that now!
Do you need Him? Do you ask Him? Wake the giant Christ inside yourself and start today! Don’t you want some of that too?
