2017 – TUESDAY 26 SEPTEMBER
LEAVE – TO BE LED
“Now Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wild.” 1. YOU MUST LEAVE SOMEWHERE – TO BE LED SOMEWHERE
God wants to lead you into ALL He has prepared for you. To go up – you must give up.
Leaving behind – is the first step to a new level of faith – and a new location in God.
2. IT IS HARD TO LEAVE A BLESSING STATION.
Jesus left the Jordan after being baptised and anointed and presented to His generation. Don’t make the Jordan encounter your life’s headquarters.
There is so much more to come.
3. DON’T LET YOUR SUCCESS KEEP YOU FROM OBEDIENCE
Jordan was the high point in life for Jesus.
But was then called to leave it all behind by the Holy Spirit.
Only He knows what the Father has planned for you.
You must continue to need the Holy Spirit. Without His guidance you simply keep circling and building on your last success. Follow Him and He will lead you forward in life.
4. THE WILDERNESS IS ALWAYS PREPARATION FOR GODS NEXT LEVEL.
Jesus began praying and fasting to overcome His harsh environment.
Meet your circumstance with the same level of spiritual resolve.
Stop praying for relief – and start pressing into God for His resurrection life to change you – believe to overcome – so you can keep going forward in life. Remember the best is yet to come.
STOP FOLLOWING THE CROWD – AND START FOLLOWING THE CLOUD.
