SPRING FORTH NOW
When we heard that, we and everyone there that day begged Paul not to be stubborn and persist in going to Jerusalem. But Paul wouldn’t budge: “Why all this hysteria? Why do you insist on making a scene and making it even harder for me? You’re looking at this backward. The issue in Jerusalem is not what they do to me, whether arrest or murder, but what the Master Jesus does through my obedience. Can’t you see that?” We saw that we weren’t making even a dent in his resolve, and gave up. “It’s in God’s hands now,” we said. “Master, you handle it.”
Acts 21:12-14 (MSG)
When we Exhale, we take a risk that what we release will be replaced by that which would enhance our ability to press forward to our higher calling. Releasing the excess and toxic of our lives will take us to a new place and new places are uncomfortable because of their unfamiliarity, however, if we are to Breathe: New Life, it demands our willingness to have faith; believe and act in the unknown as if what we believe can and should be will be. God the Creator has already prepared our life and life more abundantly specifically for us and if we believe and act - taking the risk that what we believe will be, in doing so God assures us He will reward us, not because we get it right, but instead because we diligently pursue Go ahead and Breathe: New Life, it will come with risk but have faith; Paul acted in such a way that whatever the risk may be, he was intentional about trusting God and pressing forward on his belief of a higher calling. Maybe you’ve been stuck, living beneath your potential by not taking the necessary risks, take a leap of faith, get out of your boat, launch out into the deep and cast your nets, God is faithful and will empower you to seize your promises and live abundantly!
