Many times we prepare for a trip or journey by making plans to travel either by bus, car, train, airplane or other means of transportation. We make a decision where we would like to go, arrangements are made where to stay and how long we would like to stay. We then decide whether it will be Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter in the destination we have chosen to stay for this vacation.
But there is a journey of life everyone is taking, where you go is a decision which must be made while living in flesh here on earth. I am speaking of a journey which will take you into eternity. Are we preparing with great delight in doing God’s will for our lives, or are we walking in flesh, saying my life is my own and I am okay the way I am?
Preparation for eternal life starts in seeking how to walk in a Spiritual awaking with God’s guidance. God desires to walk us through darkness while giving direction to our path. We come to trust Him with great faith to fulfill his promises given us in His Word.
How often do we walk with our head down wondering where we would go next?
How neglected do we feel, when no other person is around to help us through our day?
When we feel very lonely or rejected is when the LORD’s Spirit can work with our hearts.
What does a journey mean to you? Is it a place where you can go see with your physical eyes, in which you haven’t been? Or a short distance from home to visit stores, or maybe a friends house, or to church? Some can visualize a journey in stories they read, while relaxing at home.
A Spiritual journey with the LORD comes from a desire within our heart to know all about Him. Jesus says I Am the door and no one comes to the Father except by Me. The door to our hearts must allow Jesus to come inside and take up His abode within our hearts. To walk by His Spirit means His Holy Spirit must be in us.
This is a time of seeking the beauty of God, a time where we long to walk in deeper wisdom and understanding of His love for each of us. We take this journey only with God alone, for no one else can reveal God to us. It is through and by the Spirit of God that we learn of His Will and His Spirit which teaches us all things.
The deeper we grow in faith, the more strength of His presence around us, the more desire of His language, His enlightenment we receive, then we become filled with joy and peace upon this journey within His guidance. Talking with God about every desire of our hearts will bring us deeper into the throne room of Heaven, allowing us to be comforted in His Divine Presence around us. Let us enjoy this journey walking in the beauty of God while being taught of His divine truth as only He can teach us.
God is our Teacher, our Counselor in all things both great and small.
He alone can teach us of His divine Will.
Scriptures to help in our growth, as we seek God to take us deeper upon this journey with Him.
The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. Deuteronomy 29:29 KJV
That the LORD thy God may shew us the way wherein we may walk, and the thing that we may do. Jeremiah 42:3 KJV
And He said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee. Ezekiel 20:11 KJV
It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. John 6:45 KJV
Every part of the Bible will give us a way of seeking God in deeper levels in which we can be filled of His wisdom. The desire of His Spirit must be of our hearts to seek for His Truth, His love, His indwelling peace, for it is a choice to make in following His direction daily. Let us take a Journey of Faith deeper into His instructions so we are closer to abiding in His Will to be done in us and in earth as there in Heaven.
God bless you all with great joy and peace upon your deepening journey to find His path for your steps.
