Stepping High

Meditation Scripture: “The human heart plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps.” ~Proverbs 16:9

After talking with a friend, I began to ponder on dreams and visions and having clear direction for your life, your marriage, your children — your family as a whole. A fundamental lesson I have learned in my marriage, watching my parents, as well as those around me; is that one must have a vision for you and your family. Not the vision that the world has said that you should have, but the one that is Divine.

This is a fundamental teaching for those who enter into The Sanctuary. God is multifaceted and multidimensional, and has provided many sources and streams for us, but we never see the full manifestation because our mindsets are that of this world. His Will is the vision He has for your life.  To understand and live out your dreams and live in the our fulfillment,  you must become kingdom minded and operate in an obedient faith. Another key you must surround yourself with people who are digging to deeper depths to be Kingdom minded, are committed to being that which they’re called to be and  to live life fearlessly by storm. Also, you must align your life with the Word and this is more that just knowing it but actually being a doer of it. Once you get a clear understanding in these areas, it doesn’t matter what anyone says about you, what they do to you or how they try to sabotage you — you’re pressing forward because your steps are ordered to a higher calling.

Refuse to live a life that is mundane, ordinary and wreaking of the status quo. I have witnessed so much greatness go six feet under prematurely, not accomplishing that which they were ordained to achieve because they were not aligned with the His Vision for their lives or they were afraid to take a risk. And this has caused me to declare, I will not say at the end of this life, “I coulda” “woulda” and “shoulda”. I encourage those of you that are exasperated of being in the rut and on the hamster wheel of life to get with some folks who are over the ordinary and are eager to do the extraordinary. To also begin to seek His path for you and then take action because “faith without you doing is dead”. Then believe and expect that the greatness, visions and dreams that are in you will be accomplished and manifested through Christ Jesus. He has so much destiny and purpose in each of us, but it is up to us to transform our thinking to believe and then began to live out our ordered steps – stepping high towards a higher calling.
