So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
Ephesians 4:11-16 (NIV)
God has given unto us freely so that we might freely receive and grow into that which He has declared, His promise for our lives. God gave to you everything you need, that which you can see for the good and that which God works for the good, all is for the Equipping Yourself, is essential to your development and your building out the well-lived and joy filled life promise. Remember, absolutely nothing happens by accident or happenstance, it is divinely ordered. God knew and knows exactly what your journey would be and has been intentional all along the way making available to you deposits, tools for your benefit and you walking in your promise. It is up to you and I to freely receive from God that which is His intended purpose; seek God in your circumstances and He will reveal His keys to your progression which unlocks the door of your situation and releases you to your next level. The challenge is that we must see and act in our now, being liberating and relevant, God freely giving and we freely receiving and thus growing, expanding into our promise. Occupy Your Promise by liberating your self in your situation to God’s plan and purpose and receive His deposits that lift you to your new level, onward in your journey for a well-lived and joy filled life.
