And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.
Life itself can be overwhelming as the various demands and challenges press upon you causing you to feel frustrated and helpless, stressed, to navigate life and LIVE. The demands and challenges are not just all bad, it is also the good, there is so much going on at one time, good and bad, that one can feel pressed to conform to the status quo and just accept things the way they are, robbing you of the joy and enjoyment of life promised and you feel you deserve. The feeling of accepting things the way they is often influenced by what we feel are our inadequacies and lack off capacity to handle and navigate life to our desired and destined place. It is in the moments of our stress that we just want things to stop and demands a game changer in order to enjoy the life and life more abundantly that is ours. The game changer demands that what we believe should be needs a plan of action that does not ignore the stresses of life but with the stress assist us in navigating them so that we achieve that which should be for our lives, a well-lived and joy filled life. Life is the vehicle for our promises and in order to get above the fray of life, we must take a moment, step back and evaluate our space. Evaluating who we are, what we bring to the table, and the realties, variables, and tools within our space. As a result of an honest and candid evaluation of our space develop a plan to win. As we evaluate our space, what we got to work with, develop a plan to elevate our position above the fray in order to achieve, see the route that is destined for us to LIVE the life and life more abundantly promised. Evaluating our space and elevating our position is driven by our sincere expectation of God’s intervention by connecting with the Spirit of God that leads and guides us, directs our ordered steps into our promise. Live By The Spirit so that you van see not what you do not have or what you need but a mental picture of what should be, vision, living about the fray, so that you are positioned to receive and embrace the promise of life and life more abundantly!
