SPRING FORTH NOW
So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
The issues of our lives have come to press in us so that we might press out of us the very promises of God for our lives. Before we were ever shaped or formed in our mother’s womb, God had ordained us; called and anointed us for His purpose and plan and the more we travail life and its experiences as opportunities to press into us as we press out of us, the better positioned we are to Soar. Reframe Your Issues as opportunities of equipping and as runway platforms for you to Soar. God is using the issues of your life to form and shape you for your takeoff into His promises and to rise high and increase rapidly in the fulfillment of them. As Jesus presses into Peter the importance of his love for Him, his focus on Christ, He presses into him so that Peter would press out him, his calling and anointing, his assignment in which God would be pleased. God wants to do in you exceedingly, abundantly, more than you can ever ask or think by the power that works in you, pressed out of you as you work your assignment. Reframe Your Issues with a focus on the fulfillment of your assignment, your promises from God; pressing into you that which you press out for your good to Soar!
