Moving on Up...

     How can I help others to move forward in their walk in Jesus Christ?  That seems to be the theme of this blog as stated above.  It is my desire to help others through my writing. I pray that God leads those people to read my blog who are ready to get up off the ground level and move on up in their relationship with God.  If one person is moved and encouraged to get back up with the help of God, then His will has been done.

     All of us have our seasons of successes and failures. That doesn't mean that we are failures.  Many of us are troubled with complications and addictions. Some of us struggle with severe illness. What ever has come against you or got you down. I want you to know that you can pull forward with God's help. Nothing in this world and flesh can stop you from going forward.

Hebrews 12:1-3 Since we are surrounded by so many examples of faith, we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially sin that distracts us. We must run the race that lies ahead of us and never give up. We must focus on Jesus, the source and goal of our faith. He saw the joy ahead of him, so he endured death on the cross and ignored the disgrace it brought him. Now he holds the honored position—the one next to God the Father on the heavenly throne. Think about Jesus, who endured opposition from sinners, so that you don’t become tired and give up.

     When the Bible tells you to get rid of everything, God's words means what it says! If it distracts you from the race that is set before you, then get rid of it. Nothing can stop you, unless you allow it. Sin and sickness cannot stop you...if God is for you, then who can be against you?

     Moving forward is really not all about religion and being religious. When you are being religious and get knocked down you don't have any power flow or source. Obeying the commandments cannot help you give you power for living, but it shows how weak you really are!!   "For you are not under the law, but under grace!!"  In our weakness He is strong..

     When you place your heart in Christ's hands you have resurrection power.  The spirit of God is your complete energy source and eternal life. It is all about relationship with the master of the Sea, the water walker Himself, Jesus Christ!!  With Him, you can walk on rivers, lakes and oceans...

The Spirit of God renews your faith, can give you strength and even yet, give you the grace that only God our Father can bestow on His beloved Children!!

     Maybe you have turned your back on God. My brothers or sisters I know from experience that is very disastrous!  Turn back to Jesus your Savior!  Even if you are wounded, even if you are tired, and lonesome...even if you are weak.  We cannot allow the enemy to drag us down in his gutter!

God wants to lift you up on the highest high, where the eagles fly!!

Father I pray for those right now, that are reading this message....Lift them up in healing grace, releasing them...let them fly again. If they don't know you as their Lord and Savior, reveal your glory to them, that they will know your love, Your  beautiful life and Your amazing grace!! In Jesus name I ask and pray, Amen!
