God is doing amazing things in my life. I had a mindset, lies I believed to be true, a lifestyle I lived by… and it has all changed. This isn’t something small, people. It’s something huge. I need to call it sin, even though I don’t want to call it that. Doesn’t matter. Whatever excuses I try to make, no matter who I try to blame, it was my sin & I’m owning up to it. And because I’ve done that, & acted upon it, I am being set FREE! I cannot explain it. I have so much joy, so much peace, so much freedom, so much JESUS! I want to share it with the world, but I also feel like I need to be specific in who I share it with & at which particular moments as God leads.
Which brings me to this point: I want to bask in this victory, take a break & enjoy it, etc. That may be all good & fine except… I have to keep moving forward. I can’t “just” bask in it. I have to let God who began a good work in me carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Phil. 1:6). I need to let God “move on to the next thing” in my life & not take a break from Him changing me to be the person I need to be. I feel such relief that I’ve given this (huge) area over to God… but I can’t quit there. I must “run in such a way as to get the prize” (1 Cor. 9:24b). He has so much more to do in me & through me, and I’m excited!!
- What has God recently done in your life?
- Is it easy to just “stay there” & enjoy it, talking & thinking about how great it is?
- What do you think God is trying to work on in your life right now if you will continue in the race instead of taking a water break?
- Take some time to thank God, share with others about what he’s doing, then continue to run the race!
