Are you Stuck in the Here and Now?

A LOT have happened and continues to happen every day.  OMG! Every day in this world today is an adventure and that’s putting it mildly.  You may be feeling that you’re finally getting back some semblance of Order in your life, and you are taking it one day at a time.  We all must admit that in any given moment we revert to survival mode just to get by.  But I have something to tell you… God’s assignment for you has not changed.  You may remember that last week I said…

10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Ephesians 2:10 NLT

There is nothing that has happened or will happen that will change God’s mind about you.  NOTHING!  I will give you several translations of Romans 11:29, with my paraphase and it says this…

29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance (He doesn’t change His Mind). KJV

29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. (They can’t be cancelled). NKJV

29 For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn. (He won’t take them back) NLT

God’s gifts and God’s call are under full warranty—never canceled, never rescinded. The Message Translation

The Here and Now is OK and we are extremely grateful for every day, for every breath we take, but don’t get stuck in today!  Take a moment to look back and celebrate just how far you have come and then look ahead, because God’s got a whole LOT more for you to do…The only thing standing in your way is YOU!!  If you are not sure how to begin, well, in James 1:5 it says,

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Now, like never before, it’s imperative that you take a quiet moment to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying…
