I trust that all is well and that you’ve thought about this “journey” you and I are about to embark on. I know, I know… it seems has though you didn’t have much notice to plan. Please trust me when I say, “You already know what you need.” I believe the Lord allowed me to select the byline – ‘Every Journey Starts At The Beginning” for a reason. Before we step out to embark on anything there is always a starting point where we discover our intent or instructions for said journey however, even before that we should be empowered to “go”!
In Matthew 10 when Jesus gathered His 12 disciples, before giving them their marching orders, he empowered them. He gave them the needed authority to accomplish the task.
I like the Holman Christian Standard Bible translation,
Summoning His 12 disciples, He gave them authority over unclean spirits, to drive them out and to heal every disease and sickness. (Matthew 10:1, HCSB)
Please know that the Lord has left nothing to happenstance! In order to know what direction or focus we each should take on these upcoming days, we should simply submit that request to the Lord and ask for directions, instructions or a focal point(s). You cannot move without a plan or a Vision!
I would like to thank a dear friend of mind, without prodding gave me what her initial focus areas are: Prayer & Making time for the gym. I am quite sure that the Lord had been dealing with her to commit more time to both, so it worked out easily. Perhaps it may not be that clear-cut for you. Just ask the Lord to direct you to know which areas of your walk would He want you to focus on!
Take the next 24 hours to meditate on that and I’ll see you back here on Day THREE!
Until Next Time Please Remember That – every aspect of your life has been planned out for you by our Heavenly Father. In order to know His plans for our lives, we must first accept and submit to that thought and ask Him for guidance to know His plans from our own.
For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11 HCSB)
