Here to There Again

Here is where you are at right now – spiritually, financially, in relationships, career, education, mentally, emotionally, and faith walk with Jesus Christ. We need to spend time looking at how we got “here”. What could you do that you're not doing now?

There is where you should be. Not always where you want to be, or where your friends tell you. It’s not even in some cases where you thought you would ever go. But it’s God’s place for you. Under His wisdom, His guidance, His direction, His provision, His Power, and His Will you can get to “there”! We need to spend time looking at how to get “there”. There is all about the doing and the being. What must you do to be where God desires you to be?

The Land Between is neither here nor there. It is a place you must go through, experience, learn, and grow from. It's where you are formed and refined to be there.

Consider Jesus' response to the criticism of His preaching and teaching as found in John 7:16-19, Jesus answered, "My teaching is not my own. It comes from him who sent me.  If anyone chooses to do God's will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.  He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.  Has not Moses given you the law? Yet not one of you keeps the law. Why are you trying to kill me?"

God's Word, the truth, will prove to be our directions on this journey. We need to open our eyes, minds, and heart to what God has in store for us. We must be honest with ourselves on where we are and why then take that first step to get where God wants us to be. Amen?
