KEEPING UP WITH THE KEEPER
Restoring, reviving and renewing your relationship with God
By Arianne C. Price The Prophetic Princess of www.christianwalktoday.com
People of God many of you are chosen and seeking divine purpose in life, but now you find yourself in a Spiritual SINK or SWIM situation. You know that God has a job in the earth that He has appointed you to do? Did you know that you are ANNOINTED JUST TO BE YOU? Therefore, you donít have to be intimidated or afraid or compete because itís in your DNA. God made you to be you. He brought you through everything that you have been through because He chose you for a specific assignment and divine purpose, but now itís time to make a permanent shift in your relationship with GOD.
Listen family, you cannot hang around people who believe you to be the OLD MAN. Those friends from your past cannot yet see your future! Why would you even think that you can spend all day in the pigpen and not come out smelling like slop?
The more you expose yourself to the people, places and things of your old life the more comfortable you will be in those surroundings; thus your barometer for what is good, right and acceptable in your life becomes dull and you numb yourself to the Spiritual CHECKS that were once your warning sign of coming disaster.
You can either push past discomfort, pain, and anxiety and become the man or woman that the Heavenly Father has called you to be or you can be STUCK living a rotated life and miss out on manifestation in due season. And let me tell you something folks, there is nothing worse than living a rotated life.
When you live a rotated life, whatever is under your feet eventually gets on your head. A rotated life is living in cycles where youíre on fire for God one minute and then youíre lukewarm the next, and then youíre on fire and then youíre lukewarm. A rotated life always leads you DIRECTLY BACK TO YOUR VOMIT!!
God has brought you TOO FAR TO TURN BACK NOW. This Christian walk is all about a progressive process. We must continue to grow, if not we will begin to die. We must stay moving and not give up, give in or give out.
A lot of us experience great instability in our lives, but we donít often realize that STABILITY REQUIRES STEADFASTNESS. That means we must be consistent in running the race. Consistency is the key to breakthrough. The reason many of us have not yet gotten to the place God wants us to be is because we are incredibly inconsistent or we are consistent in the wrong areas. I call that being consistently inconsistent. THAT LEADS YOU DIRECTLY INTO THE HANDS OF THE ENEMY.
Royal Priesthood, your lives are too important and your purpose is far too great to allow the stronghold of inconsistency to kill you in the Spirit. Your life is to purpose driven to surround yourself with people from your past. Everybody from our past is not meant to make it to your future.
We are in a season where some people are going to soar to brand new heights while others will be left behind in the dust from the ascension. I pray that you will not find yourself in the driveway while the rest of the Body cruises on the highway to destiny. If you make up your mind to Persevere YOU WILL REAP IN DUE SEASON IF YOU FAINT NOT.
So, donít get tired of doing right. Donít get tired of reading your Word. Donít get tired of praying DAILY. Donít get tired of confessing and proclaiming your faith. DONíT GET TIRED!! The worst way to lose to race is when the finish line is in view. So, press forward Zion, because if you know the God we serve, then you already know that in the end we win! In the end, we win! The question is: will you press on and keep up with the Keeper or will you give up, give in and revert to the old man from which you have been set free?
The time is now and no matter what it looks like persevere. No matter what it feels like- persevere. No matter how much your flesh rebels against you ĖYOU PERSEVERE!!! Perseverance is the requirement for PURPOSE. The race is not given to the swift, but to those who endure. So, stay encouraged, tap into your faith and keep up with the Keeper. God is calling, the question is: will you be in position to answer?
Next week we will talk about the elements of Perseverance which are FOCUS and BALANCE and how we can develop both of these invaluable elements into our lives to enhance our Walk with God ;)
Peace and Increase
