But there is another urgency before me now. I feel compelled to go to Jerusalem. I’m completely in the dark about what will happen when I get there. I do know that it won’t be any picnic, for the Holy Spirit has let me know repeatedly and clearly that there are hard times and imprisonment ahead. But that matters little. What matters most to me is to finish what God started: the job the Master Jesus gave me of letting everyone I meet know all about this incredibly extravagant generosity of God.
Acts 20:22-24 (The Message)
When you are Living On Purpose there is a sense of urgency to move and flow in something that seems right. The way of your purpose may not make sense or even may even appear impossible but something within says you must go, you must do this. It is this urgency from within of the Spirit of God within us that withholds the rain, the storms and challenges of life causing you to yield to God’s Spirit even though it may not be clear or possible I order to LIVE. A true sign of the purpose and plan of God for your life and in your circumstances is the passion unleashed in you that drives your narrative, your steps. It is incumbent upon you as co-creator with God to make sure you are developing and nurturing your relationship with God, feeding your spirit that compels you even against what appears to be your best interest, flesh in order to move out of your comfort zone and launch into the deep. The Spirit of God dwelling inside of you serves as your compass, your Global Positioning System connected to God which drives your narrative, actions, and steps. As you succumb to the power of God you are empowered from within to overcome your flesh, fears which prevents you from moving forward in God’s purpose and plan. God is faithful, He will lead and guide you all the way from your now to what God intends for your life, facing each challenge with power and overcoming to inherit His promise of life and life more abundantly. It is this objective of God’s glory being revealed in your life to LIVE which is your incentive and motivator, giving you a testimony, a witness of who God is and HIs power and love for you available to all. Sharing your story, your witness sets the stage for the releasee and revelation to everyone and everything that comes into contact with you and your space. Your witness, lived experience, becomes like fire shut up in your bones that feeds your passion, the Spirit of God within, and when released and shared redounds to the benefit of God and your victory to LIVE!
