For God So Loved the World That He Gave….

We have so much to be thankful for this morning. When the world is full of turmoil and confusion, it is good to know that we have freedom to worship a loving God who loves us with an everlasting love that no man can match. His love is limitless, and eternal. Nothing will ever separate us from his love and no matter how far we sometimes stray away from the path that he is leading us to follow, he gently calls us back to find our way. Like all humans, we are sometimes so independent that it can lead us to get our eyes on other things.

If a circumstance comes up we must attend to it immediately. We dive in to solve the unsolvable because it is in our nature to have everything in place. All of our duties are laid out before us. Our plans, our goals, our dreams, may as well be carved in stone, because we won’t rest until they are accomplished. This can pose a grave problem for us, especially when God’s will for our lives may change as we learn and grow. It is possible that we have growing pains as we find our way to maturity in Christ. Nothing ever gets in our way when we are determined to do our best, because we stay focused on what we have decided is God’s will for our lives, yet, we never really ask God if his will has changed. No, we say we have heard from God. That’s it. That settles it, when God may be leading us to a new direction with better promises; unfortunately, many times we don’t listen.

So often we see our vision, and forget that God’s vision for our lives is greater than anything we could ever imagine. We think small promises that are easily attainable and never reach beyond our comfort zone, are easier to go after than those seemingly impossible desires and dreams that the Lord has placed in our sights. Have faith and learn to trust in the Lord and to lean not to your own understanding and he will bring it to pass in due season.

All of our desires and ambitions, in the secret places of our heart, are revealed with a simple prayer of faith. You may be struggling to figure out what direction the Lord desires for you to take. It’s never too late to wait on God. He asks us to “seek his face;” and when we need answers from him, we may not find the answers we seek in any other way but by prayer.

How badly do you want to follow his will? Bad enough to make the sacrifice of praise, or to submit yourselves to authority? It may be easier to lead than to follow sometimes, but to be a good leader we must learn how to be a good follower. As the song goes,

In the things familiar we find security
Resisting all the changes that days and years can bring
When God decides to lead you through an open door
Inviting you to walk in realms you’ve never known before

Beyond the open door is a new and fresh anointing
Hear the Spirit calling you to go
Walk on through the door for the Lord will go before you
Into a greater power you’ve never known before

Hear the Spirit calling to wake the living dead
To reach the huddled masses who cry out for living bread
Arise oh mighty army, take up thy shield and sword
For the Father lifts His golden lamp beside the open door

Beyond the open door is a new and fresh anointing
Hear the Spirit calling you to go
Walk on through the door for the Lord will go before you
Into a greater power you’ve never known before

Beyond the open door is a new and fresh anointing
Hear the Spirit calling you to go
Walk on through the door for the Lord will go before you
Into a greater power you’ve never known

Where He leads me, I will follow
Where He leads me, I will follow
And where He leads me, I will follow
Into a greater power you’ve never known before
Beyond the open door

In this week’s Lattereign, we celebrate Palm Sunday. Hosanna to the King-Palm Sunday

What is a writer? Someone who writes.
