SPRING FORTH NOW
When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway, deciding to live not on the basis of what he saw he couldn’t do but on what God said he would do. And so he was made father of a multitude of peoples. God himself said to him, “You’re going to have a big family, Abraham!” Abraham didn’t focus on his own impotence and say, “It’s hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child.” Nor did he survey Sarah’s decades of infertility and give up. He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said. That’s why it is said, “Abraham was declared fit before God by trusting God to set him right.” But it’s not just Abraham; it’s also us! The same thing gets said about us when we embrace and believe the One who brought Jesus to life when the conditions were equally hopeless. The sacrificed Jesus made us fit for God, set us right with God.
Romans 8:18-25 (MSG)
We receive power when we Reconnect to God’s purpose and plan and to the environment in which we exist because it is there we receive the motivation and encouragement for whatever we face even if it appears impossible. The power we receive from God's purpose and plan as well as our environment is necessary and serves as energy for us to press past our challenges with the confidence that what we believe can and should be will be for our life. Therefore, your power is a direct result of God’s promises for your life being made real, the Word made flesh; the process of you working your field; God's promises for your life in connection to what God is up to with you, and around you. Thus the importance of ensuring that your environment, space, is filled and conducive for your pressing toward the higher calling for your life. By no means will your environment be free from toxicity, but know that even in it you will and can receive the required incentive to press. Before Abraham became a father, He was called father by God and all those around him, whether with good intentions or bad, challenging him to live in what was not yet manifested, to work His field in order to make his Word, the promises of God for his life, flesh. Breathe: New Life by going forward in what you cannot even see right now as though it was and be, exist in that which has been promised to you, and press forward to live in your life and life more abundantly!
