DESTINY'S NUGGETS

THE HOLY SPIRIT’S “FORWARD”

As believers of CHRIST, we are going from glory to glory. As followers of JESUS, we are on a victory march knowing that as we walk our ordained steps, we arrive at the right place, at the right time, for the right reasons.

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and HE delights in his way.”
Ps 37:23
“A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.”
Prov 16:9

I was recently taken aback when someone well known in the music industry attempted to peddle their services based on yesterday’s feats (achievements, deeds, exploits, accomplishments). I tried to smooth it over by telling myself that they were just proud of their past, but it soon became obvious that this person and I would not be a compatible match. While we are to learn from the past, we must never dwell there if we want to press forward and into the office of our High Calling. 

“12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Phil 3:12-14

We are living in a very progressive world full of momentum, and we must be malleable and wise if we want to keep in step with the Holy Spirit’s forward movement. We must be wiser than the serpent (who can only dig up old bones of yesterday) if we are to obtain our promised land.  Dear warrior, do not faint at the sight of giants; your steps are watched over and your way is protected: The LORD will not lead you astray (Numbers 13-14).

The associations that I want to make are with forward thinkers who are BOLD enough to be unique, HUMBLE enough to know from where their abilities come, and BRAVE enough to withstand the inevitable onslaught that comes whenever one challenges the ‘status quo’.

Until next time,
Walk with me along the victory path 🐾
Love, Destiny/ CYU
