Grace and peace beloved Saints of God, How awesome is it to believe, even better, to know that God has a plan for your lives that's greater than you can currently see, that reaches further than your current reach, and that will testify of His greatness that will be manifested through you? Awesome indeed!
So what are you waiting for? 2 Peter 1:3 states that: "His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness" (2 Peter 1:3). Everything you need to live a life that honors God and fulfills His purpose for your life has been given you through Christ Jesus. Your job is to appropriate it.
It's like walking through a garden that you've been given access to. Every fruit in every tree is "yours for the picking." The key is that you must pick it. What is God calling you to do, where do you start, you might ask.
Three things to consider:
1. Start on your knees as you seek to hear the voice of God. Ask God for guidance, and then be still and listen.
2. Open the precious road map God gave to us, remember the timeless acronym for B.I.B.L.E. Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. Read it. Meditate on it. Know it. No matter what you're dealing with, trust me - its in The Book!
3. Finally, live by faith. Start the journey. You'll never get to where you need to be if you don't start the journey. Walk by faith, not according to your own vain imaginations, but according to the illuminating path that God has made for you through His Word. By doing so, you will accomplish things beyond what you could ever envision you could do for yourself.
When you hear me say time and again that "it's time to be creative," I mean it's time to walk by faith. It's time to reach up and reach out to appropriate every good and perfect gift that God has made available for you to succeed through our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ.
What I love about this precious experience, is that you can't lay hold of the gifts until you surrender and allow the giver to lay hold of you. Then, you'll really have no more excuses. If you've already taken this step, well you know what I'm going to say - Get to steppin'! It's time to be creative!
For His Glory and Our Good,
Pastor Emery B. Barber
