No one likes to be uncomfortable; however, a person who’s uncomfortable, is a person on the move. Think about it. Let’s take the story of Goldilocks and the three bears. Goldilocks, sat in the hard chair, then the soft chair, before finding the chair that was just right. You know how the story continues, but it’s not just a story, it’s life. We will experience the hard chair (challenges of life/discomfort). We will experience the chair that’s too soft (places of comfort/stagnation). Both of these experiences are necessary in order for us to reach that place of “just right,” that God has for us, but the only way to get to that place in which we’re destined, is to keep on walking! We’re not in the most danger when walking. We’re in the most danger when being still, and I’m not talking about this quarantine. I’m talking about when you’re at a standstill mentally and spiritually, you’re in even greater danger than you are at a physical standstill. That “soft chair” is a chair of easy breezy and comfort. It’s not necessarily good, but it’s something you can deal with. That soft chair symbolizes settling for less, or settling for things in our control. It takes no faith to remain comfortable, or mentally and or spiritually stuck. All to often we settle for the “too soft chair” out of fear of not being able to control something more. Just because something’s easy, doesn’t make it right. You gotta keep moving/keep walking until you get to the right chair, or the place in which God has called you. The too soft chair is more dangerous than the too hard chair, because you can’t see the threat. You only feel how comfortable it is. Which is why many people think that it’s where they’re supposed to be… because it “feels right” or it “feels good.”
Now let’s talk about the dreaded “hard chair” that we cannot wait to get out of! 😅
“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
When going through, you can’t see the good in what you go through. You can only see the challenges, the hardships, the pain, the struggles, and how uncomfortable it is, but let me tell you something, this is not your end. There will be glory after this. The challenge (hard chair) is necessary, because it’s guaranteed to make you move or change. I know it hurts but the pain is necessary, the struggles are necessary, because these things are what’s going to help thrust you into your destiny! You’re going to come out stronger, better, braver, more focused, than ever before! In Jesus name. When you’re a child of God, God allows everything you go through to make sense. You may not understand it now, but you will understand later. There’s a purpose to everything you go through. It doesn’t matter what they did, what you did, what matters is what you decide to do right now, in this moment. The only way to move forward, is to keep walking. Keep praying. Keep trusting God. Keep the course. There will be glory after this!
Souls will be saved. Hope will be restored. There are miracles being performed right now. Even in the midst of what you’re going through today, God has already made a way of escape. He already has goodness and mercy following you. He already has angels assigned to you. His blood already has you covered, protected and saved. It’s up to you to activate your faith, that’s the only way to keep walking. We must be plugged into the source. We must put our hope, faith and trust in God. It may feel like you’re in a dark tunnel right now. You can’t see your way. You don’t know if you should turn left or right. Your back may be against the wall. You may be alone. LOOK UP! There will be glory after this! KEEP WALKING. The only way to get through, is to go through! Go through it! Don’t be afraid of going through, be afraid of giving up, and never seeing all the good things God has for you! Going through is not the worst that can happen to you, being mentally and spiritually stuck is! Don’t allow fear to cause you to become stuck, or to become deaf to the voice of God! Fear has no place in your life when you’re a child of God. Hope will not be cancelled! There are a lot of things canceled right now, but in Jesus name, Hope will not be one of them, because God is still on the throne. Jesus is still on His right side interceding for us, and the blood still works! Good God, I could insert a shout right there…🙌🏾💃🏾
On this Palm Sunday, as we celebrate our Lord, Our King, God’s Word, our Saviour. Let us praise His name and honor Him by continuing to follow Him/continuing to walk! Walking by faith and not by sight! Stay the course dear friends, and be encouraged, because there will be glory after this. ❤️❤️❤️
