Life is a Journey
Updated: Feb 13, 2019
Remember that life is a journey and that life in the Kingdom will require that you move beyond your basic and original experiences with God and grow and mature as true citizens of the Kingdom. Claiming our inheritance is not about joining a particular church or denomination. It has nothing to do with being religious, experiencing a temporary emotional high, listening to good preaching, and not putting to action what we have heard and compromising and getting involved in worldly things that will keep us bound with what is happening with this temporal state and this page of human history; naming and claiming, blabbing and grabbing will do nothing if you’re not obeying God and living the lifestyle. But, it does have everything to do with understanding that we are actual citizens of a Kingdom established and ruled by God Himself that will exist forever. Kingdom citizenship is certainly a spiritual reality, but is also a mentality; a way of thinking; a mindset for living. As believers we have the Spirit of God, but we need to learn and understand the Mind and Heart of God. We need training in our thinking and living as God’s elect.
The time is at hand; the time is now. Sudden changes will continue to occur and in a much larger scale. We must wake up to the fact that we are actually living in a ‘new world’ and that some of the spiritual things we’ve done for so long and have taken for granted, no longer work and that God expects more from us because God has moved on and has written ‘Ichabod” (the anointing has lifted) over some of the things done in traditions and dogmas. These are exciting times for God’s people because the old earth as we know it, is actually falling away with a big noise and a new heaven and a new earth is being birthed. That’s what all this is about. Mt 24:6-8.
Whatever you’re thinking and feeling today, is creating your future. Your current situation is only the residual of your past thoughts and actions. It is not who you really are. We live in the residual of our past thoughts and actions. Thoughts and feelings are seeds that reproduce after themselves. It’s a law that God set up in the spiritual realm. Everything reproduces after its own kind. Don’t allow things or people to affect your endeavors. Accept all things, but attach to nothing. You see, the universe corresponds to the nature of your “song”. The universe thrives on speed and does everything with no effort. As an individual created in the image and likeness of God, you create your own universe as you go along. What you focus on with thought and feeling is what you actually attract into your experience. Life can be phenomenal and it should be.
Jesus said, ‘ask, believe and receive.’ Generate the feeling of having it now. Don’t delay; don’t second guess, don’t doubt; the downfall started when the enemy said, “Did God really say?” When the impulse is there, the opportunity is bound to show up. Act on it! You need to pay attention to what you’re attracted to because as you hold images of what you want, they are going to be attracted to you. All you have to do is take the first step of faith and keep going. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step and don’t stop. Your circumstance right now is only your current reality. You have the power to change that. You receive what you expect; not what you hope for. Faith is expecting it; not hoping for it. Think you have in the now, not in the future; because if you do, you may always be waiting. A thousand years is as one day and one day as a thousand years with the Lord. In other words, God lives in the eternal now, the spirit realm.
Gratitude shifts your attitude and your thinking. Appreciation attracts good things to you. Keep an attitude of gratitude. Visualization is another key. When you visualize, then you materialize. Dwell upon the end result. Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” Remember the promise. Believe that you have it. Believe you deserve it. Believe it possible for you. Seek first the Kingdom wealth and power and authority that God has placed within you, then the outer must submit and obey and it will begin to change. God’s Word is settled in heaven for ever and no one or anything can ever change it! He gave us the keys to life in this world as well as in the next. We must appreciate this and use them, because when we do, we honor Him. It’s us saying, “I am grateful for how much you love me. I believe you; thank you Father God.”
